I was talking about getting a picture put onto a canvas. Well I just got it back from the printers and I am really pleased with the results



CRAP picture to show some scale


Its 24" x 16" and I am really pleased

The picture was the same that I had on my desktop not too long ago:

www.c41s.co.uk

They are a printing shop in Chester. The cost was 60 which isnt too bad when you consider the cost of all the online printing places differ by maybe 10 at the most.

The finish is pretty good aswell and I have been told its been sprayed with a protective spray that makes it water proof, So it means I can get that picture of Jas done on a canvas and it may last longer....





I will go get a side view of it now as well hang on...

Will have a look, you know when people get about 6 canvas's that size, but it's one image. That's what I want, (with gaps between the canvas) but at 60 a pop that won't be cheap

Looking good Doug

I had one printed up just after Christmas to about the same size, also cost 60 from local framing shop. Looks too small though, wish I'd gone for A1, that was about 80 IIRC

You get what you pay for in life tbh. Prefer it to be printed on decent canvas with good ink and a good protection spray over it rather than get a cheaper one and have to get it re-done at some point

Same here - thought I can either pay 40 over the net and hate it, or 60 2 minutes down the road and have it done by someone who at least knows how to frame properly rather than a monkey in a factory.

That said, next time I'll try the net, to compare the difference for myself
