I would definitely recommend John Mactavish (above). I have just had some large canvas prints done & they are just awesome. Great price & an excellent personal service to go with orders placed.

Highly recommended!!!!

I did some research and ended up using Intercanvas who were great. Dealt with a lovely lady called Wendy and prices seemed very competitive. Had the panoramic image in my portfolio done as 60" x 13" on heavy canvas with double thickness frame, came to 170. Couldn't find anyone else in that price range for that quality.

I know a few people who've used (link removed ) canvas prints with good results.

Just checked their site and they print up to 45x30 inches.

Good luck!

The issue is one of choice. To dye sub or to inkjet? With regards to canvas printing certainly the methods are very distinct and you will find 2 camps each swearing the virtues of their printing methods. The dye-sub brigade claim total durability with prints that can be washed and ironed, whilst the inkjetters feel they are the true, museum quality giclee printers.

The truth is that both have virtues and vices. I have seen some poor quality inkjet prints that make me cringe and some poor quality dye-sub prints that make my eyes water. Like any other services provided, (lawyers, doctors, plumbers etc...) you get varying degrees of quality. Some people accept this and other don't. The good ones will always prevail because nothing quite beats a word of mouth recommendation.

So what of the poor customer? With the amount of choice available, I'm afraid it boils down to a little research. Most companies will be happy to provide samples along with information about their process and the durability of the print. Send them an image and ask the questions. We can all make claims about the quality of our prints and the less scrupulous and more insecure amongst us might try to denigrate the printing process of our competitor in order to make ourselves look better. You are the customer and the choice is yours. Ask for samples and then decide.

To dye sub or to inkjet?

Or to suffer the slings and arrows of fate?

Good morning all! Smile

You ought to try a company local to me. A company called Menor (Sawbridgeworth 01279 726214). Good quality canvas prints at competitive prices. In addition, they can produce canvas stretchers in custom sizes too.
