Can anyone remember the Canvas Printing article from DC Mag earlier this year? Unfortunately I don't have that issue any more - so could someone please tell me who the top 3 companies were for canvas photo printing in that shoot-out?
No protective coating, no option for full bleed around edges, lacklustre quality. Poor service, with no replies to enquiries. Nothing good to say except cheap and a good range of sizes available.
Beautiful, vibrant colour, excellent IQ, frame supplied with wedges to maintain canvas tautness over time.
Voted best buy.
Both DesignerPrint and PhotoArtistry produced high quality results, but with identical imaging and manufacturing - DP was better value though. This high level of quality was matched by The Digital Room who were much cheaper making them the best value buy.
For absolutely top quality results, though, the silver halide printing (instead of giclee) and board mounted production processes used by Loxley Colour and One Vision Imaging couldn't be beat. In the tests the outright IQ proved immaculate and the finished gallery wraps were much more robust making them worth the extra outlay. The result was close but One Vision came out on top due to extra finishing options and better prices.
Summary: If on a budget recommended to go with The Digital Room, otherwise go with One Vision Imaging.
