Recommendations for large canvas prints

I realise canvas prints have been discussed before but I'm looking for up to date recommendations for companies that print large canvases (I'll be ordering several custom sizes up to 1.5m square). Looking over the previous threads, most of the discussions are either a few years old or the companies mentioned don't cover large enough dimensions.

I'm happy just to try one or two places that I've found via good old Google but hearing any personal experiences from folks here before I place orders would be really welcome.

Atrium Canvas. Just had some done for a client and they are excellent.

Try Cypher Digital, I have had lots of large Canvas prints done with them over the years and never had any problems.

Thanks folks. Unfortunately none of the suggestions so far do the sizes I need (I'm looking for 1.5m square). Any other recommendations?

Only up to 60x75cm according to their website which is sadly nowhere near big enough in this case.

You will struggle with 1.5 meters square as most printers will be use a 44 inch printer on the shortest side. Your best bet is to try send find a printer who has a 60 inch printer and just get the Canvas printed and then take this to a picture framer who should be able to easily make up the stretcher bars (will also need strainer's bars at that size) they will then be able to stretch it too. Although with the extra needed to wrap around even this will be a little short of 1.5 meters.

60 inch minus the amount needed to wrap would probably be close enough. I have found a few places that come close, e.g...

Hi,
I recommend to visit http://www.magnipic.com/, as they offer canvas print photographs at a very reasonable price. The quality they provided to the prints was amazing.
They also offer large canvas prints in large dimensions. In fact I also used them to print my daughter’s photograph tin print.

Hi,
I know this thread is a bit old now, but if you are still looking, I would highly reccommend this place - thecanvasprintstudio.co.uk
The quality of the frames and the printing is really good, and they print up to 56" square, and on one side up to 96"
