Canvas or Paper? Tips for choosing the right media...
Canvas is not protected by glass, whereas a paper print is, usually surrounded by a mat and frame. If you have small kids that like to sling toys and food around the room then a canvas print may not be the ideal choice, but a framed print will give you the protection of glass, not withstanding breakage of course.
Canvas has a bold, museum look without the glass in front. Prints, behind glass, when matted and framed properly, look as good as canvas, with protection from the elements.
Present all of your photos – whether canvas or framed print – under a spot light, track lighting or ample, natural room light. Either way, a print or canvas will certainly become a heirloom piece for generations to come.
We use only top quality archival materials – canvas, paper, and pigments – to stand the test of time for generations to come. You can’t go wrong either way!

Paper has been around for centuries. To say that paper stands the test of time is an understatement. Protected behind glass, your paper print will be cherished by your children, your grand children, your great grand children, and beyond!
Using excellent archival quality materials – paper, pigments, mat, and solid wooden or metal framing – your print becomes a classic museum-quality work of art; a heirloom for generations to respect and enjoy!
