Materials Guide

The guide to wall art materials

With six different variations to choose from it can be hard to decide which material will best suit your preferences. That is why we have put together the below information to make your decision easier.

The Original

Each work of art has been painted with professional quality oil paint on cotton canvas stretched over sturdy wooden frame.

The consistency of oil paint is known for its smooth texture that goes on easily with a brush swipe. This adds a smooth look that might not otherwise be possible with other types of paints.

Oil paints have a higher pigment count than most other mediums, which gives this particular style the rich and luminous colors that produce amazingly vibrant paintings. Because of the excellent blends, oil paint can achieve life-like lighting and texture that is simply not possible with anything else.

Print on Canvas (Stretched)

Stretched canvas is a beautiful way to display any of your favourite photos or prints. This canvas has been stretched over a timber frame and is ready to hang straight on the wall.

Your painting is printed on this canvas, stretched, then stapled behind the frame and covered in a tightening agent for a professional finish with an ideal tension.

Our canvas material is a special textile which creates the real look and feel of artistic/painting reproductions. It is especially designed for the presentation of artworks and photos as full colour reproductions, where the structure of the fabric is very pronounced and decorative.

We work closely with a professional on-site printing company to transform paintings into stunning printed features for your home or office.

Print on Canvas (Rolled)

Rolled canvas is a piece of canvas or a canvas print that has not been stretched over a timber frame. This means it is less susceptible to damage and can be rolled for easier storage or transportation. Rolled canvas must be stretched before it can be displayed.

People who opt for rolled canvas usually do so to cut costs. Canvas can be purchased quite cheaply by the roll and can be stretched locally for a better price.

Print on Foam Board

Our lightweight 10mm PVC Foam Board is the most affordable and durable choice. It's a tough plastic material, available in various sizes and three different thicknesses, and ideal for posters and for fitting out shops and display spaces.

Professional Print on Paper

Our superb satin heavy duty poster paper is a bright and super smooth surfaced 220gsm with a photographic feel and finish. This photo paper is smudge and scratch resistant. Ozone and UV absorbers are present in the receiver layer to provide extended print life.
