    Hi All

    I've been asked for a copy of one of my pictures on canvas. What company do people recommend using? Also, do you sign your canvas prints, and if so, on the front or on the back....? This will be the first time I've had any of my pictures done on canvas and it would be interesting to know what others do.

    Many thanks

    I've just used Snapmad, excellent service and quality. They also have 20% off until 14th November.

    I got a pixum canvas for a POTW a few months ago. Its very high quality and I wouldn't hesitate getting another one from them next time I need a canvas...

    I was a bit disappointed by the pixum ones myself. Very lightweight compared to the old POTW supplier - photoartistry? Although I did go for two smaller ones rather than one large so not sure if that was a factor.

    If I was spending my own money I would call Judith at fresh pixel design.

    I use canvas that Lidl occasionally have in stock at a little over £5 for a 10xA2 pad. It is designed for painting but takes inkjet photographic printing brilliantly.

    Just one wee point to watch - it is only primed on one side, so be sure to use it the right way round.

    Quote: Get it done professionally. I use Whitewall in the UK

    If you don't want anything more than mediocre results, don't get any pride from your own work, are happy to relinquish final control over the processes to a third party, have money to splash around and are not concerned about time delays, then that is good advice. From what I hear, Whitewall is one of the better commercial photo-finishers.

    On the other hand, if you want the very best quality, take a pride in being a true amateur photographer who enjoys having complete control of the process from start to finish, and don't want to accept the inevitable compromises involved in using any so-called "professionals", then do it yourself. Immensely satisfying.

    As with everything else in our wonderful hobby, it is horses for courses, different strokes for different folks and many similar inane clichés.

    Another vote for Photoartistry or Judith, as Neil suggested above. I have never signed a canvas, personally.
