The Right Media for my Large Format Print?

Written By On 6 September 2010

With most of our products you have a choice between printing on canvas or on photo paper. Normally, when you increase the size of an image beyond the pixel dimensions of the camera, you end up with pixel break-up. However, one of the main reasons why printing on canvas is delivering such fantastic results is that when you print on canvas, the texture of the canvas has a sharpening effect similar to that of a cross hatch filter in Photoshop. What’s the right media for your large format print?

The images below show what happens to an image when it is stretched beyond its existing pixels.

If you are trying to make up your mind about the format of your next canvas prints order, you should consider the quality of the image: if you are using a high resolution image, printing on photo paper and going large will be successful. If you are shooting on a 6 megapixel camera and want to print large sizes, choose our canvas options and you will not be disappointed. Remember, the great thing about using PrintWild (www.printwild.co.za) is that we will always check the quality of your image before going to print; if we feel that the quality of the print is going to be compromised, we will phone you to discuss the options for the optimum result.

Fast, friendly and professional service. From placing the order online to reciving the order, which only took 5 days, I was updated regularly on my order throughout the process. The canvas prints and faceblocks are excellent quality. I highly recommend PrintWild, if your a professional photographer or just want to print some family pics. They are the best! Keep up the great work!

Thank you Printwild for helping me keep and display my memories. Printwild have such a user friendly website and the ordering process was so easy, simply upload your images.I was kept in the loop throughout the entire ordering process so knew when my photos were edited, being printed and ready. The customer service is amazing and the staff are super helpful. All my photos were sent for met to proof before they were printed and i was able to keep some text on one of my images as well. The courier was quick and i was given tracking details to follow my order. The photos arrived and WOW! The magnatots look like glass tiles and the quality of print on both the magnets and photoblocks is crystal clear. i was able to unpack and hang my photoblocks, which i'm now addicted to, straight away. Such wonderful ways of displaying lots of photos in a small space. i love it! Can't wait to put in my next order

As a pro photographer having shot around 500 weddings, it’s extremely important that our brides are happy with their Canvas photos. Every bride as well as other clients have praised the quality of all the products supplied by Printwild 💕 Besides the great products and excellent services, the staff from the top and across all the spectrums, are an absolute delight to deal with and make one feel special. Having dealt with Printwild for over a decade I highly recommend them.
