Over the years, I've often thought to myself that photographic canvas prints are a thing of the past, they were super popular in the early 2000's with the rise of inkjet printers and being able to produce high volumes of prints. By no means have they lost their trend, it's just my own personal opinion on canvas. I'm looking for something that feels a bit more luxurious.
Fast forward 20 years and the question beckons, are they dead? Are they still trendy and will they look good in my home?
Generally speaking most people that purchase art from my store buy a framed print or acrylic print. The later being super trendy at the moment but will they stand the trendy test of time?
My thoughts? Acrylic prints are a fantastic medium that offer this high resolution feel, like a 4k TV, they suit photographs very well, giving it a wow factor. They float off the wall and really bring a wow factor into the room. Will they stand the test of time? Providing you purhchased quality acrylics which is what we offer, and so long as you look after the prints they will look great for many years to come. But, will they still be trendy? I'll answer that down below.....
So, what about framed prints? They have almost been the most established and sort after medium since their inception. But why is that? I beleive it comes down to one simple fact. THE FRAMES! Frames give them presence on the wall, they can help style your wall to suit the colours in your room, matching style and elegance to help tie the room together.
So, to answer the question "Are canvas prints dead?" Simple answer, no! Adding a float frame to the canvas often brings new life to a medium that sometimes look a little lack luster or perhaps a little boring and plain. Putting a frame around your canvas or even acrylic in the years to come, will help bring that style, elegance and luxurious feel to your artwork. They might cost a bit more but it really does bring everything together and help finish the canvas off.
This is why, here at Jon Wright Photography I'm proud to announce we offer a float frame canvas on all our prints. Simply choose your colour from the third drop down when purchasing your print.
