How will the canvas hold up outdoors?
The unique construction and coating provide superior color gamut and resolution. Canvases are only intended for indoor use, and will resist fading if kept out of direct sunlight.
How do I clean my canvas?
The canvases are quite durable and should resist most scratches, smudges, fingerprints, etc. You can dust canvases with a soft, dry cloth. If your canvas is damaged and needs deeper cleaning you may try a damp cloth. If the canvas gets nicked and loses ink in a certain areas it can be touched up with felt-tip markers or paint.
What type of enhancements do you offer?
*Currently our retouching services can only be requested through our desktop design experience.
The enhancements available to add to your order online are Black & White, Sepia, and Retouching. We offer additional
services such as Photo Collages and Multi-Canvas Collages available offline since these jobs require custom quotes.
If you are interested in one of these options please contact us for more details 1-844-288-2355.
You can have us print your image in Black & White or an antique Sepia tone and we will make sure your image converts
to that color with the proper contrast and exposure. If you have already done the conversion yourself and are happy
with it as is, leave the order as "Full Color" and we will print the image as it is received, but please note that
the output may differ from what you see on your screen. Our Black & White and Sepia filters ensure these colors
will print well.

Will my finished canvas look like the image on my computer screen?
Every device screen displays images differently. Unless you have a profiled monitor, it may not display accurate colors. Every screen displays images differently and may differ from what the final printed product looks like. If your image needs dramatic color adjustments, please select our Major Retouching and let us know you would like color correction.
What file formats do you accept?
Canvas on the Cheap can accept PNG, JPG, BMP and TIF files that are 20MB and under. If your file is over this size limit you can flatten the image, convert to RGB in 8-bit mode and save as a JPG at the maximum quality level. If you must send a file format not accepted online or a file larger than 20MB, please call us for assistance and instructions.
What if I am attempting to find images on the Internet?
Many images online are low resolution and are not intended for printing. However, one way to filter for higher quality images is by going to the image section within the Google search engine. You would search for the item, and then click on "Show Options" and then on the left hand side choose "Large". If you're unable to locate an appropriate image, we do offer assistance with sourcing stock images. Contact us for a quote.
If I have my own scanner, what setting should I use?
Depending on how large the print is and how large you want to go you should scan from 800 to 2400 dpi. Be sure to crop to just the image area so that the scanner surface is not included. Some scanners include software to remove dust and scratches automatically. If you still see a lot of imperfections and spots on the digital file, you can add Minor Retouching to the order and we will remove that.
Do your rolled canvases include a wrap size?
Our rolled canvas come with a wrap depth of 1.50
How can I find out the details of my promotion?
We want to be sure you have all of the information! Near the top of our website you will find the details you need. Give a click to "Promo Applied! Click for Details" and you will see the specifics for your promotion.
What printing technology and canvas do you use?
Our prints are giclee prints that are printed with UL ECOLOGO and UL GREENGUARD GOLD Certified 1 Water-based HP Latex Inks. They are hazard free, have no HAPs, and are nickel free. The canvas is a polyester material. The finished product has a semi-gloss surface.
If I order a Gallery Wrap, is the size I order the print or the finished product?
The size you order will be what is printed and seen on the front of the canvas. Depending on the wrap option you choose (Image, Mirror, Color), this will either include your image around the edge of the canvas or not. This is mainly true with image wrap where the image is wrapped around the edges.
How are the canvases packaged?
We have had our boxes specifically designed to protect your canvas while in shipping. Canvases will either come in a plastic bag to keep out moisture and are held securely in the center of the box, or will be shrink wrapped to a pad in order to keep them from moving during transportation.
Are there any restrictions on what type of photos can be printed?
You can print any digital image on canvas with us whether it be a photograph, painting or digital art. There are no restrictions on what subjects can be printed, but Canvas on the Cheap does reserve the right to refuse orders with questionable content. Per our terms of sale, you must however be the copyright owner of the image or have obtained permission for reproduction from the copyright owner.
What is the best way to hang a canvas?
Two saw-tooth hangers will be evenly spaced on the back of the canvas frame when the side they are applied to is longer
than 36". Smaller canvases have saw-tooth hangers installed in the center of the back of the frame. You may choose
to add your own hardware if you have a preference for how to hang your artwork.
For a video of our Wall Hanging System offered on select canvas, see our Wall Hanger System Video Page.
When hanging art, the general rule of thumb is to have the center of the piece at the average persons eye-level. Galleries
will often hang the center of the art from 60" - 66". If your canvas will hang over a piece of furniture just take
that into consideration when hanging.
Should I get a Wall Mount or a Wall Hanging System?
The standard Wall Mount provides a simple hanging method for light canvas. The Wall Hanging System provides a more robust hanging solution that gives the canvas a very stable hang and prevents it from being knocked down. The Wall Hanging System also includes a small level to ensure that your canvas is level on the wall.
What stretching options are available?
We have several options for your finished canvas prints. All canvas are wrapped around a stretcher frame with finished sides. The sides will be a continuation of your image, a mirror of your image, or a solid color depending on your selection. These styles are available in two sizes: 3/4" or 1.5". The 3/4" option is also called "Standard Depth" canvas and can be used to fit into a decorative frame.
