When looking at canvases and the way they are created, we could say that it seems that there is a machine used to create them. But do you really need a machine to create canvas prints, especially if you want to create those that are in good quality? Let’s find out.
You will be needed a computer for editing
If you want to print canvases, you would obviously need a computer to edit the design or photograph you want to print. This is, in fact, the first step of your project. Your work starts on the computer because all editing and adjusting is done here before printing the final portrait for the canvas.
You will surely need a printer to print canvases
There are various printers out there that are created and designed to print canvases on different sizes. It is best to find printers that are specialized for a canvas print because they can adjust correctly to the texture of the canvas. They also work well on other printing papers and materials. So, a printer is the second machine that you need for canvas printing.
The presentation of the canvas
As you can see, the canvas is in a frame or canvas panel, and that requires a manual job to do that. However, some machines help spread and stretch the canvas on the panel, but most people would do it manually.
When it comes to the effect of the canvas on printed photos, that is not the work of the machine. You might see that the surface is textured or has wrinkles and lines that look like they were painted. They just apply a Mod Podge glue on the surface of the printed photo. They can create lines or place a canvas fabric on top of it then remove it immediately. Don’t worry; when the glue dries, it will all clear up, and the new texture on the surface comes out.
