How to Save Money When Buying Canvas Prints

If you have a limited budget to spend on wall art, buying inexpensive canvas prints online is an easy, affordable solution for decorating your space. Unlike expensive fine art prints, canvas prints make it simple to create custom, attractive artwork. Part of the reason canvas prints are affordable is the wide range of source material. Two excellent options include:

  1. Stock art prints can be bought online. You can browse through online stores, searching through the different designs, patterns, and images they offer to find something to match your style.

  2. You can turn your photos into custom, one-of-a-kind canvas prints. All you have to do is provide digital versions of your favorite photos. The options for canvas prints are as limitless as your imagination!

But as affordable as these options already are, there are other ways to save money when ordering your canvas prints. (We know a thing or two about canvas prints, as we provide some of the most affordable and highest-quality prints in the business!)


Step 1: Avoid Poor Quality Canvas Art

When buying canvas prints it is important to choose the best version of the photo you want printed. In this day and age where images are shared between family members via social media and on smart phones, it is important that your image has the highest quality resolution possible. The bigger the size of the canvas print you want to buy, the higher resolution your image needs to be. The more “megapixels” in the image, the higher the resolution, the more crisp the finished print will be.


Step 2: Choose product options to match your budget

Now that we have talked about image quality, it’s time to choose which canvas product to buy that best fits your budget. Each of these product choices have pros and cons in terms of expense and presentation.

Rolled canvas prints are cheaper to ship

Your final product may be mounted or rolled. Unmounted or rolled canvas will come to you in a roll that takes up less space and is very cheap to ship. We offer museum quality rolled canvas available in custom sizes ranging from 8” x 8” to 36” x 36”. Our canvas fabric is 100% polyester material that is both UV (Ultra Violet) and water resistant to ensure your print lasts longer. When buying unframed canvas you may need to have DIY skills, tools and materials to build a custom frame to mount it on, or if you wish to display it rolled you can display it on walls, as tablecloths, book covers, garment patches, murals, or wherever you can attach the canvas.

Choose filters and effects wisely

Choose filters and effects wisely.
If you’re satisfied with your image, skip the effects and save a few more dollars. But if you want to make your photo really pop, for only $4.99 more, you could turn that image of your kids into an Andy Warhol style or Pop Art canvas worthy of any modern museum.


Frame stands are an inexpensive display option

Have a small apartment or limited space at your office job? You could turn your canvas into a table-top masterpiece by adding a frame stand to your smaller sized prints. Best of all they are only $7.99!


Choose high-end options wisely: The floating frame

If you have a particular piece which really calls for that gallery quality look, choose a “floating frame.” These quality frames create visual space around your canvas, separating it from its surroundings and drawing attention to the artwork itself. It makes it seem as though they are almost floating in mid air! Instead of floating frames for everything, choose one or two to keep your budget in line. Floating frames come in the following sizes: 8” x 10”, 11” x 14”, 16” x 20”, 18” x 24” and 24” x 36”. They also range in price from $26.50 - $42.20.
