How to Choose Between Metal, Wood, or Canvas
When it comes to displaying your treasured photos, you have more options than ever before. It’s no longer just about picking a nice frame. With advanced printing techniques you can now express your unique style with metal, wood or canvas prints. Today, we’re going to explore all three of these options and how to know which one is best suited for your style and space.
The Benefits of Metal Photo Prints
Metal is a perfect material for the decorator with a modern approach to decor. Your photo is infused into recycled aluminum, which captures the photo’s vibrant colors with exceptional image clarity.
Besides the captivating colors, metal prints provide incredible amounts of flexibility in the style of your final product. You can go with the standard, rectangular print, of course. But you might just find yourself creating a whimsically-shaped metal photo clock or a washboard-style print. Metal prints allow your creativity to truly shine.
The Benefits of Wood Photo Prints
If your style is more about creating a cozy, organic feel, you will love wood photo prints. Like metal print, your photo is infused directly into the material for a long-lasting print. But in this case, the unique grain and knots in our premium white birchwood show through the photo, making each print one of a kind.
The natural tones add a warmth to your photos, whether you’re printing a sunny, summer memory or snapshots from a crisp day in the fall. And in addition to wall hangings, this substrate allows you to create beautiful puzzles, photo books, postcards, and more!
The Benefits of Canvas Photo Prints
Canvas prints are the most classic and enduring substrate for photos, making it perfect for the timeless decorator. Your photo is wrapped around the sides of the frame for a stunning 3D effect, and the textured grain of the canvas softens your print to create an ethereal glow.
When printing on canvas, make sure you have a sturdy frame that won’t warp over time. Our poplar frames are a bit heavier than the standard pine frame, which helps your print keep its shape for years to come.
