What are PhotoSplits™? How do I make them? [top]

PhotoSplits™ break one photo into multiple canvases or panels. When viewed together, they reproduce the entire scene.

When you select the PhotoSplits option on your order form, you have a few choices. First, choose between three or four panels. Then choose the width of the frame – either 1.5" thick or 2.5" chunk. Finally, select the overall size. This is the size the panels would make if they were placed adjacent to each other and measured.

Once you upload your image, we’ll do the calculations and image manipulations necessary to create successful PhotoSplits.

If you purchased a promotional voucher for a photosplit, please make sure to enter your voucher at the beginning of the ordering process, when prompted. This will ensure that you are directed to appropriate order form for your voucher.

PhotoSplits are available in any size or configuration. Call us to discuss your custom project.

Can I convert a color image into black and white or sepia? [top]

On your order form, you’ll have the option to convert color images into either black and white images or sepia images.

To convert your image, prepare your file like any other photo. Our artists will make sure your canvas looks sharp and rich, as if it was originally photographed that way.

What's the difference between chunk, thick and thin traditional canvas wraps? [top]

Traditional canvas wraps come in three different sizes: chunk, thick and thin. The difference is the thickness of the stretcher bars – the wooden frame your canvas is wrapped around.

With chunk gallery wraps, your canvas will be wrapped around 2.5” thick wooden stretcher bars. It’s a substantial, eye-catching look.

With thick gallery wraps, your canvas will be wrapped around 1.5” thick wooden stretcher bars. It’s a clean, modern look that’s ready to hang.

With thin gallery wraps, your canvas is wrapped around .75” thick wooden stretcher bars. It’s a good choice if you’re planning to custom frame your canvas.

What goes on the sides of my canvas? [top]

Unlike photographs, canvases are three-dimensional. The sides of your canvas can either be an extension of your image or a solid color.

The image wrap option allows the edges of your image to continue onto the sides of your canvas. If your image is too tightly cropped, just let us know. We’ll use a combination of techniques to achieve a natural extension, at no charge.

If your image is very closely cropped or processed through our Canvas Builder then the edge of your canvas will have a modified image wrap. Our artists create an extension of your image that uses the same colors from the face of the canvas to simulate an image wrap without compromising the composition of the original image.

You can also choose a solid color for the sides of your image. Black and white are always options. Or we can isolate a color that’s featured in your image.

What if I want my canvas framed? [top]

You’ll notice several custom framing options on your order form. You can select a floating frame in walnut, silver, gold or black, or a premium frame in gold, antique, walnut or premium black. We also offer a standard black wood frame.

How do I hang my canvas? [top]

Hanging hardware comes installed on each canvas we send out. The type of hanger depends on the size of the canvas and current stock.

If you choose to have a finished back on your traditional canvas, we’ll cover the back of your canvas with a white kraft dust cover.

What size can my canvas be? [top]

For traditional canvas, can create any customer size canvas, from 8” x 8” to 55” x 100”. Dimensions must be in whole inch increments.

For premium canvas, we offer standard sizes up to 30x40.

What currency do you use? [top]

All prices on Canvas On Demand are listed in US Dollars (USD.)

Premium Gallery Wrap

What is the Premium canvas made of? [top]

Our Premium Gallery Wrap canvas is our artist grade canvas mounted to a solid, supportive face that prevents sagging or warping over time. The canvas is finished with a black matboard backing that comes with hanging hardware already attached so that it's ready to hang right out of the box!

Can it go outside? [top]

Our Premium Gallery Wraps cannot be displayed outdoors in the elements. If you are interested in a canvas for durable outdoor wear, we recommend our Outdoor canvas prints.

Can I put this in a sunroom? [top]

Yes, our Premium canvas wraps can be displayed in an enclosed sunroom as long as they will not be directly exposed to sunlight or weather elements.

Why is the Premium more expensive than the traditional? [top]

Our Premium canvases have a specialized method of construction that includes having your canvas mounted to a solid, supportive face that prevents sagging or warping over time. This construction and the 2 year quality guarantee are the reason the Premium canvas styles are the reason these canvases are slightly more expensive.

What are the differences between the Premium and Traditional canvas? [top]

The Premium Gallery Wrap is the lightest and strongest canvas wrap we've ever made, at 1.25" thick. The canvas is adhered to a solid surface and comes with a finished black matboard back, which acts as a dustcover and adds support so there is no risk of your canvas warping or loosening over time. Premium Gallery Wraps are only printed in a few select sizes but because of their high quality patented design, we are able to offer a two year quality guarantee.

Our Traditional Canvas Wraps are constructed using traditional canvas. They come in two depth options, thin (.75") and thick (1.5"). Custom sizes are available in whole inches ranging from 8"x8" up to 55"x100." Dustcovers and frames are available for an additional charge. Traditional canvases come with a one year quality guarantee.

Is the Premium canvas better than the Traditional canvas? [top]

All of our canvases are created with artist grade canvas and archival ink, with a UVB protectant in the canvas fabric. The largest difference is in the methods we use to assemble your canvas. Our Premium canvas wrap is 1.25" deep and mounted on a solid, supported face which prevents sagging or warping over time. Our Traditional canvas wrap canvas is hand stretched over an internal stretcher bar frame. Our traditional wraps are available in custom sizes, whereas our Premium canvas wraps are limited to standard sizes listed.

Will this look different on my wall if I have the other canvas type beside them? [top]

Since premium thick wrap canvases are 1.25", they look slightly thinner than traditional thick wrap canvases, which are 1.5". When viewed from the front, the difference between the two styles is hardly noticeable.

Why is the warranty longer for the Premium Gallery Wrap canvases? [top]

Our Premium Gallery Wrap canvases come with a backing that adds stability and enables us to extend the warranty.

Why can't Premium Gallery Wrap have the same hanging hardware on it as the other canvas? [top]

The bracket or sawtooth hanging systems aren't compatible with the backing of Premium canvases. We include a fold-out tab at the top of the Premium canvases for easy hanging and an additional tab on one side to give a second option for the orientation.

Can I put a frame on this canvas? [top]

Premium Gallery Wrap canvases do not have the option to add a frame. However, we have a similar product called Framed Canvas Standouts, which offer the choice between a black and walnut frame. If you're looking for a framed photo, we highly recommend Framed Canvas Standouts.

Why can't I have a custom sized Premium canvas? [top]

Due to the solid surface mounting, we are not able to produce custom sizes. If you are looking for a custom size not available in our Premium Gallery Wrap selection, check out our wide selection of traditional wraps that can be custom-made in whole inches from 8"x8" up to 55"x100."

Coloring Canvas

Will the canvas stretch or sag when I press down to color it? [top]

No! Your canvas will be smoothed around a proprietary solid-core frame that won’t stretch or sag as you color it in. The sturdy frame makes each canvas a comfortable surface for coloring.

Do I need to have any artistic skill to make my Coloring Canvas look good? [top]

Absolutely not! Coloring Canvases don’t require any artistic skill. The only thing you need to know is how to color. Each design is printed in black ink on a white background, so all you have to do is color it in however you’d like.

What if I have trouble staying in the lines when coloring? [top]

That’s okay—we offer three different levels of Coloring Canvas. Beginner-level canvases are less detailed with bigger spaces to color in. Advanced-level canvases are typically full of intricate details and better for more experienced coloring artists, and people who enjoy a challenge!. Intermediate-level canvases are a mixture of both large and small details.

What kind of marker should I use? [top]

We highly recommend using BIC Mark-It Permanent Markers in a Fine Point tip. These markers can be purchased almost anywhere office or school supplies are sold. They dry fast to prevent smudging, and the larger Fine Point tip minimizes the appearance of streaks in your masterpiece as you color. Another great thing about these markers is they are easy to blend to create unique colors. If you decide to use a different type of permanent marker, be sure to test it on an inconspicuous area first.

Are there any other tips I should know? [top]

-Don’t be afraid to leave some white space on your canvas. Not every opening needs to be filled in.

-For bigger spaces on your canvas, create an ombré effect by fading from dark to light shades. It’s a simple way to create a striking look.

- Keep in mind that your unique taste is what will make your Coloring Canvas perfect. If you mess up, nobody will notice!

What do I do with my Coloring Canvas when I’m finished? [top]

Each canvas arrives with hanging hardware attached so you can proudly display it when it’s ready.

Image Preparation

What if something is wrong with my image or order? [top]

We review every order that does not go through our canvas builder before processing. If something is amiss, a representative from our customer service team will call you to discuss your order.

Please note that if you purchase a voucher, you will be directed to go through our awesome Canvas Builder template. When uploading your image, if the size is too small it will prompt you to select a different image. The builder will give you a preview of what will be on the face of the canvas. It allows you to control the cropping of the image and select the wrap to be image, color, or blurred. What you see on the preview screen of the builder is what will appear on the face of your canvas. Please make sure that your image is exactly like you want it before proceeding, as any user errors with the builder are not covered by our 100% guarantee. If you would like to adjust the size to a size different than what is offered on the builder, or request a different edge option, you will need to choose the "Professional Review" option when prompted during the order process.

Can you crop and prep my image? [top]

If you would like, we will artistically crop your image to work with the proportions of the canvas size you’ve selected. Simply provide us with a detailed description of your ideal cropping in the comments section of your order form. If the image won’t work, we’ll call you with an alternative solution.

When you send your image, be sure to assign the profile that you did your image manipulation in. Hi-res JPEGs using Adobe RGB are most successful.

If you have purchased a voucher, please be sure to enter the voucher code when prompted at the beginning of the order process. This will guide you to our Canvas Builder option that will walk you through the set up of the face of your canvas.

What should I know about copyrights? [top]

What is a copyright?

A copyright gives its owner the right to copy, distribute, publicly display or create derivative works from the original work. A copyright also gives its owner the right to license those rights to others.

How do I know if my photograph is protected by copyright?

A photograph is copyright protected from the moment it is created. This means that even if you purchase a print or digital file from your photographer, you still need to talk to them about making reproductions from that item.

How long does a copyright last?

The current copyright term is the life of the creator – in this case, the photographer, plus an additional 70 years.

Things to remember about copyright:

  • Purchasing a print or digital file from your photographer does not mean you have purchased the copyright.
  • Under the Federal Copyright Act of 1976, photographs are protected by copyright from the moment of creation.
  • Unless you have permission from the photographer, you can’t copy, distribute (no scanning and sending them to others), publicly display (no putting them online), or create derivative works from photographs.
  • Professional photographers are dependent on their ability to control the reproduction of the photographs they create.
    • It affects their income and the livelihood of their families.
  • Copyright infringements—reproducing photos without permission—can result in civil and criminal penalties.

How to make legal copies of professional photographs:

  • Contact the photographer/copyright owner. Photographers are happy to discuss options for reproducing photos with you.
  • Check both the front and back of a print for a copyright notice. If it is a school, sports or similar type photo, you may want to contact the institution where the photo was made.
  • Use the Photographer Registry Web site to locate a photographer/copyright owner at, so you can obtain reproductions or permission. With a few pieces of information about a photographer (i.e., they did portraits in Anytown, USA in 200X), a search can be conducted to find the copyright owner.
