What is Canvas Fabric?

Canvas is a thick woven fabric which uses a very plain weave. It is usually made from cotton or linen, however originally it was made from hemp. The plain weave that is uses sets it apart from other heavy fabrics as it doesn't use the twill weave that - for example - denim does. From Old French and Anglo-French, which both appear to come from the Vulgar Latin word 'cannapaceus', canvas literally means 'made from hemp'. Treated canvas is often used as a base for artists to paint on, however if it is not treated for that use then much of the paint would soak in, and the finished piece would appear blotchy. Embroidery work such as cross-stitch also uses canvas material, as well as photo printing which is stretched over a wooden frame.  

Make a Collage

If you can’t decide on which photo to use, you can upload multiple images and create a photo collage. This can be done using one of our pre-set montage templates, or you can create your own entirely from scratch. It’s super easy to do and the possibilities are endless.

How to add your collage to your product

Step 1 – Click the start design button & select your product options.

Step 2 – Go to the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab, click the ‘add images/Text’ button on your product & ‘Select Images to Upload’ or use the Facebook/Instagram tabs.

Step 3 – Choose the images you want to use for your collage, upload & select them from the uploaded photos list.

Step 4 – Click ‘Create montage’ & select your collage style.

Step 5 – Add the collage to your design.

Hints and Tips

  • The more images you add to your collage the smaller each image will be. Fewer images will be larger and give you more clarity and detail.
  • The more people in an image, the less detail there will be. If you have 10 images of a group of five friends, each person will be smaller than if you have 10 images on just one person.
  • Try to make sure that the longest side of each image is around 3.93". There is a handy ruler built into the design tool to help you with this.
  • Smaller products will not be able to fit as many images as larger ones will.

Digitally printed designs

Your design is printed digitally onto the fabric in full, permanent color. This is done in a variety of ways depending on the fabric, including dye sublimation and pigment printing. We use eco-friendly inks, and you are given a choice of how you would like your fabric finished. It is worth bearing in mind that natural, and in particular, organic fabrics such as our Organic Cotton Canvas naturally show subtle asperities that are part of the fibers of the fabric. As such, these elements might slightly show through your designs and will be more visible when light or white designs are printed. These will be less visible with darker colors, patterns or montages. The organic cotton canvas remains one of the popular choices among our customers. 

You can have your custom printed canvas fabric sent as it comes off the printer, or cut on the line of your design with the white border removed. You may prefer to have your printing on canvas fabric hemmed. You can choose between black or write thread, and one of our seamstresses will create an overlock hem around your printed material. Remember to allow extra in your measurements for hemming if you are taking this option.
