The first step obviously is the selection of image that you would like to see on the print.

After satisfactorily coming up with the image selection you would have to print it on canvas. It seems quite complex as you are not aware of printing a picture but don’t worry! You don’t have to do it yourself. Visit a printing service provider in your vicinity and get your image imprinted on a canvas. Choose the best quality canvas to achieve best results. Doing it by self at home requires too much stuff to have. So, leaving it on a photo printing shop is better.

Finishing

Once you have got the canvas printed and it is ready for further processing you would have to frame it in order to take it toward making a final finished piece. Canvas prints are usually stretched on wooden frames to give them an elegant look. Stretching the canvas tightly requires a tool by which you can do it perfectly. This task can also get done with professionals in the market but its up to you if you enjoy handling such little adventures.

Doing it yourself may take some additional time as you would need some practice doing it perfectly. Start with placing the wooden frame on a table and fold canvas around it. You may also use staple gun on one side of frame. Now pick and fix the canvas with canvas pliers and repeat this process to fix canvas on all sides of the frame. After stretching the canvas tightly, staple the canvases on frames wherever required. It is better to apply masking tape on the staples to hide them.

 

Finally, frame your canvas as framed canvas prints give a more attractive and eye-catching look. Voila! Your homemade canvas print is ready to place on any wall of your home. This was all the procedure and following this you can design as many prints as you want.
