Frequently Asked Questions

What is Canvas Print Studio?

Canvas Print Studio is a one stop shop for canvas printing and framing. We are 100% Australian made and owned and we pride ourselves on producing superior quality prints that are made to last a lifetime.

Why buy from us?

We specialise in printing to canvas, and take pride in doing this exceptionally well. At Canvas Print Studio you can print images confidently, knowing you have an expert who will review your file and guarantee that you receive a canvas print you will be excited to hang on your wall.

We are not a canvas factory, nor do we produce hundreds of genetic canvas prints and have them shipped to Australia. We do things the old fashioned way, with attention to detail and care. We make everything by hand in our Melbourne print studio and source all materials ethically and sustainably within Australia.

Why do our prints cost more than Kmart, Officeworks and the Canvas Factory?

Our services cater to anyone looking for a premium product that is made ethically within Australia using sustainably sourced materials. We have a passion for producing beautiful quality prints and our experienced team of photographers and artists will print, stretch and frame your canvas on site at our Melbourne print studio.

At no additional cost, we can edit, retouch and digitally enhance your image to ensure your file meets the premium standard that you’d expect. We offer a selection of standard sizes in photo, square and panoramic dimensions and also make custom sizes.

What type of canvas do you print on?

We use Cason 380gsm poly-cotton matte canvas. This is a premium, archival canvas that stretches without cracking and is designed to remain taut over time.

What type of ink is used?

We print with Canon and only use genuine Canon inks. Our colour profiles are customised to ensure colour accuracy when printing.

Are prints UV protected and what does the finish look like?

Each canvas is coated with Aquathane-UV liquid laminate to ensure prints are fade-resistant, durable and easy to clean. We use a matte / satin blend to give your print a solid protection without being flat and dull (matte) or overly shiny and reflective (glossy).

After many years of experience, we have been able to achieve the perfect blend to make your canvas print stand out from the rest.

What materials are used? Do you offer alternatives?

We print on a high quality matte bright-white cotton canvas but do offer alternative canvas. We also stock a range of photographic papers, vinyl, adhesive paper, backlit and material, if we don't have what you want we can also source materials for our suppliers.

Do you use a protective coating?

All our canvas prints are sprayed with a UV coating for protection against fading, water and dust damage. Matt, satin or gloss finishes are available.

What if I want to paint over my canvas?

Yes you can. Many artists come to Canvas Print Studio to enquire about painting over their prints. As artists, using this technique we can offer you our experience and advice to help you achieve the best result.

What canvas wrap is available?

There are several options for wrapping your canvas: - Mirrored edge - Stretched edge - White, black or coloured edge
