FAQ’s

What is the difference between the 3 available canvas options:  Unvarnished Canvas Print (rolled canvas), Varnished Canvas Print (rolled canvas), and Gallery Wrapped Varnished Print(Stretched on 1.5″ Stretcher Bars)?

Unvarnished Canvas Print (rolled canvas)

Printed canvas without varnish/UV protective coating.  This is ideal for those who wish to frame their canvas themselves; we recommend using a frame with UV coated glass to help protect the print since this item is not varnished.  This is also ideal for artists and creatives who wish to paint over the printed canvas for a more creative and personal touch.  If you wish to stretch the canvas yourself, we recommend opting for the varnished canvas print.

Please note: This is the canvas only and does not include stretcher bars.
