Canvas is best for enlarging photos
Old photos are usually small to begin with, meaning enlarging these photos would make the print look pixelated or distorted. With canvas, however, the texture of the canvas helps to mask some of the imperfections and “film grain” of older photos. You can take a standard 8×10″ photo and expand it all the way up to nearly one metre without losing detail or quality. You’ll be amazed at how gorgeous these photos will look enlarged on canvas.

Old photos can have a lot of issues. Damage, fingerprints, creases, stains, and more can plague even the best cared for photos.

Fix coloration and dulling
Another thing that many old photographs suffer from is discolouration. Photography has come along way since it was invented, but even new photos still suffer when mistreated or hung where light can bleach them. Most old photos also are printed on older kinds of paper, few of them archive worthy. This makes it important to attempt to recover what was lost by time. Colouration can be fixed with some careful photo retouching and an expert hand. You won’t believe how beautiful your new canvas version of an old or damaged photo can really look.
Scan photos at high quality
Scanning your old photos in very high resolution can help to ensure that your canvas has every single detail included. We recommend scanning at no less than 600 dpi for this enlargement process and saved as a high resolution .jpeg or .tiff file. High quality scans can also be shared and saved on your computer or phone. This will open up endless possibilities for your old photos, newspaper clippings, and generations of mementoes. Restoring old pictures for print onto canvas is a great way to display and appreciate those precious photos of the past. We will provide you with the digital copy along with a stretched and ready to hang canvas print for your wall. This is the perfect gift for a loved one or something you can cherish forever!
