Canvas prints have become increasingly popular over the last decade or so. Part of this is due to the fact that it is now possible to print your own photos and designs on them.

The canvas print is meant to replicate the look of an original oil or acrylic painting on stretched canvas.

They have been made popular by the likes of Ikea, Homebase, B&Q, and other home improvement stores, which sell mass produced prints to their customers at cheap prices.

This is an important point for any businesses which specialise in design or photography. Think about producing your designs on canvas. They are easy and relatively cheap to mass produce, and due to the growing popularity you are sure to see a profit from sales.
