Canvas Prints

Both classic and contemporary, canvas prints bring timeless art-gallery style to the world of digital photography. And thanks to the rise of mass custom printing, you now get your own photos printed on canvas at surprisingly affordable prices.

Pros

    • Canvas prints are inspired by traditional oil paintings on canvas – they have an effortless artistic character and turn your digital photos into real works of art.
    • As canvas prints usually come stretched over inner frames, they can easily be hung on the wall or simply leant against any vertical surface. Either way, they’re bound to become a focal point of any room.

Cons

    • Photo reproductions on fabric come with a natural matte finish – so if you prefer prints with a glossy surface, canvas prints may not be the right choice for you.
    • Although canvas prints have excellent longevity, they shouldn’t be exposed to direct sunlight or displayed in humid environments.

What About Price?

At My-Picture.co.uk canvas prices start from just £6 for the smallest format: 20 x 20cm. There are more than 15 print formats available in total.

Poster Prints

Custom photo posters come in an elegant minimalist design that can make for very striking home decor – provided you choose a reliable company who achieve excellent print quality. Make sure you check the paper used for printing – the best choice for a high-end photo reproduction is real photo paper.

Pros

    • Posters are amazingly cheap, so if price is a priority for you, this could be the right wall decor choice for you.
    • Posters are very light, so you can easily secure them on the wall with just some putty or a couple of hanging strips – no need to take out the drill!

Cons

    • Posters are printed on thin paper that doesn’t allow for very high ink saturation. As a result, the colours of your print may not have quite the same vibrancy as certain other print formats.
    • In the past posters have had a reputation as disposable wall art more suited to teenagers’ bedrooms, bars and student dorms, and not everyone sees them as the right choice for a high-end wall art display.

What About Price?

Prices at My-Picture.co.uk range from £3 to £7, with five size formats available

Framed Photos

Framed photos have huge potential as home decor pieces. And if they come with gallery-standard frames they’ll be able to turn almost any image into a real statement piece.

Pros

    • Framed photos are a classic that never goes out of fashion – this is a simple yet visually powerful wall art solution, suitable for homes styled in any design scheme.
    • The best providers offer framed photos designed in gallery style – with an oblique-cut card-stock mat, a neat decorative frame, and a shimmering acrylic glass cover.

Cons

    • Framed photos have been popular almost since the beginning of the photography era, and you’ll find at least a couple of frames in almost any household. So if you want to mix things up a little you may want to try some different print formats.
    • Although it’s possible to simply lean framed photos against a vertical surface, they do look best hung on the wall, which means doing some basic DIY work. This could be a problem if you don’t have the landlord’s permission to make changes…or if you’re all thumbs when it comes to DIY!

What About Price?

At My-Picture.co.uk framed photos start from £14.90 for a 20 x 20cm print.
