That is why, a canvas print is suited for any type of wall in your house.
  • Printed poster (canvas material): The poster print is a UV printed canvas paper with a slightly roughened surface finish. Please bear in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the poster print we add a white margin between 2-6cm round about the print motif, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.
  • Acrylic glass print: A glossy acrylic glass print, which is sometimes named as a UV print on plexiglass, will transform the original artwork into beautiful home décor. With an acrylic glass art print contrasts plus granular color details will be more exposed thanks to the precise tonal gradation.
