A few years ago I wrote a piece about the need to print pictures. Online is great, and better than the days of film when they most likely went in a draw never to be seen again. But you really can't beat having them hung on the wall.
And the bigger the better, size does matter.
It's great to visit someone who has one of my pictures hanging on their wall.
I have printed books and calendars, mostly just for me. Vanity printing I you could call it. Viewing on a screen just doesn't have the impact, or maybe it's that we are use to quickly flicking to the next image when we use a computer.
I looked at some options for big prints; posters is one format, but it's not the finish I was looking for. Printing big and framing is very expensive. I needed something in between.
Printing on canvas is affordable, but I hadn't been impressed with the quality, until I found The White Canvas Company
I ordered a 20 x 30 inch print, it was a very good price and the whole ordering process was easy.
When the print arrived it was with some trepidation that I opened it.
I shouldn't have worried it was so much better then my previous canvas prints. It went straight up on the wall of my office.
I have ordered many more for the office and other people.
If I had an unusual size requirement, or they thought a slightly different crop would suit the print we would discuss the options and agree on any changes.
I think if you get good service from a company you should say so. It's not a big outfit, the personal touch is another attraction. They think about the result; it's not a case of just printing as is, if it could be made better.
The reason I'm writing this now is because I have just taken delivery of my latest print. As you can see at the top of this page I have quite the collection.
