Like many people do, you too would be trying to do comparison shopping when you want to get your custom canvas prints done either from your own photos or buy one of the photos from the gallery of your canvas printing company. When you set out to compare costs, you should learn to compare like for like and only then you will be able to make the right decision. Each company has their own factors that affect their pricing and the product quality varies from one company to the other. Therefore, you must make sure that you are getting the best product for the money you are paying for your custom photo canvas prints. Here are some of the factors that normally control the cost of your canvas prints.
Size of the canvas print – This is one of the most obvious factors that control the cost of your canvas prints. Larger the size of the canvas prints greater the price. However, the rate may not increase proportionately. In some cases if you choose a standard size print then it will be cheaper than bespoke or custom size print. So you need to get a complete rate card from your canvas printing company.
Quality of canvas used – The quality of your canvas print greatly depends on the quality of the canvas used. There are various grades of canvas available in the market. So your canvas company should use the best quality material to produce canvas prints that last a life time without any damage. You should not be deceived by cheaper rates; you might be getting inferior quality canvas sheets. The canvas sheets should not crack on its surface even with aging. Good quality canvas sheets can be little more expensive and this will affect your pricing factor.
Quality of the printing ink used – The quality of printing used also affects your over all printing charges as well as the quality of the prints. Poor quality printing ink may fade in a short time. So make sure that the canvas printing company that you use is a reliable company.
Quality of the mounting frames used – Some companies try to keep their overhead costs low by using inferior quality mounting frames and they may be offering their services at a lower price but poor quality frames will warp and damage your canvas print. Premium quality stretcher frames used will add up to your overall cost.
These are just some of the factors that contribute towards the cost of your custom canvas prints. Some companies try to sell their products at a low profit margin while other companies try to keep their profit margins high using inferior quality material for photo canvas prints.
