Celebrate British Art with Canvas Printing

With Britain celebrating The Olympics 2012 and The Queen’s Jubilee this year, the world has automatically embraced British branding. British prints have come a long way since Geri Halliwell wore her Union Jack dress to 1997 BRIT Awards. Designers, such as Alexander McQueen, have made the trend iconic, classy and liveable. Canvas printing is an excellent way to show off your photography skills whilst bringing the British trend to your home.

Explore your local area and take as many pictures of typically British scenes as you can find, red telephone boxes, the Union Jack and double-decker buses are just some of the many images commonly used to depict Britain. When you have taken enough pictures, upload them to a computer and save them a jpeg files. Compare each image and decide which images are your favourites.

Before you order your print, you’ll need to decide which room or areas you will be hanging your art work and write down the size and shape of the wall in each room. This will ensure you know which canvas size to choose when ordering. If you are hanging a couple of canvases concurrently then you will need to factor in the size of the gap between each print.

The canvas orientation will largely depend on the photo orientation and the shape of the space where you are hanging it. Your canvas depth relies on how large the canvas is, if you canvas is larger than 30 x 25 inches then it will suit a 2-inch depth, whereas if you canvas is smaller than 30 x 25 inches it will suit a 1-inch depth.

Have your canvas printed in colour to ensure all the red, white and blue colours are on full view. To take the theme further have your canvas edges printed in either pillar box red or royal blue.
