CanvasRus is well known for its stunning large scale Tiled Canvas Prints. These are easily recognisable as one photograph is separated equally over a number of tiled canvas blocks creating a stunning focal point to any room in your home.

Over the last few years these multiple tiled canvas prints have become increasingly popular with architects, specifiers, interior designers and homeowners alike. They’re an affordable way of adding drama to any room. They can also be used to disguise an unsightly wall - as shown in one of the latest episodes of 60 Minute Makeover.

There are eight online galleries to choose your perfect picture on canvas from. With gorgeous illustrations, graphic design styles, stunning photography and iconic imagery you’re really spoilt for choice. Whether you’re looking to subtly flatter your lounge’s colour scheme or go bold with bright colours CanvasRus has the canvas print for you.

Multiple tiled canvases are just as easy to choose and buy online as standard Photos on Canvas. The skill of exactly separating the image and then matching each stretched artists canvas over its frame (so that when all the canvases are hung they match perfectly) is all carefully done by eye. The digital printing technique, creating multiple tiled canvases, was first properly introduced and made popular by CanvasRus over six years ago. There are now many companies that offer this style but none seem to be able to supply the quality in finish and accuracy of canvas stretching.

Each CanvasRus.co.uk canvas print is digitally printed and hand stretched in the UK. The materials used for example the wooden stretcher frames are ethically sourced. The company digitally prints on average 200-300 canvas pictures a day (not a week) and this is why they can offer such great canvas print prices.

Canvas prints – the latest colour trends in your home

CanvasRus, the UK’s leading canvas printer, is proud to announce the latest news in interior colour trends for this autumn through to next summer. If you’re after stylish photos onto canvas which are as fresh and up to the minute as the latest features in Living Etc and Elle Deco magazines look no further than this Blog.

Choosing the perfect canvas print for your home can be tricky but CanvasRus is here to help. One approach could be to select a style or theme of canvas wall art depending on the room you’re decorating. You can easily add character and personality through using your own personal photos on canvas. This is very popular as prints on canvas are suitable for any area of your home. If you’d like to stretch your creativity and imagination that little bit further – how about decorating with the latest colour forecasts?

CanvasRus has been given access to some of the latest colour palette predictions for Autumn/Winter 2010 into Spring/Summer 2011 with thanks to Global Colour Research. Ever wondered how interior designers, furniture stores and journalists know what the latest colours are before everyone else? Well, it’s not random how certain colours become more popular one season compared to another; very similar to the fashion industry. There are a handful of forecasting houses in the UK which predict what colours customers are likely to be buying up to three years ahead.

Botanic is just one of four colour stories predicted for the next six months – predominantly using ice pinks, touches of lime and fern greens, balanced with tans and chocolate plus splashes of pure white. Together these are a feminine nod to nature hence the name botanic. The Floral Gallery images (see above left) have been proportionally put together as an example of this Botanic colour story. To see them individually click on these names – Morning Rose, Purple Flowers, Ochre Rose and Tuscan Leaves1.

CanvasRus not only makes buying canvas pictures affordable but now it’s even easier to select canvas prints that flatter and fit with the latest wallpapers, paint colour charts and designer fabrics. You really don’t need to spend much to design and decorate like a professional.

Canvas prints by CanvasRus UK are well known for their stunning colours and clarity of digital printing. Have you ever thought about transforming one of your own photographs into a piece of canvas wall art? Well now’s the time to dust off those old computer folders, full of photographic images that you haven’t seen in years and choose one or two for a beautiful keepsake photos onto canvas.

CanvasRus introduced, a number of years ago, a special laminate coating which protects and increases the canvas print’s lifespan. This silk effect finish gives the digitally printed colours in your favourite picture an extra crispness and definition. So whether you’re looking at your photo canvas in minute detail or from a distance the canvas print "X" factor is always there.

The protective coating has also solved the problem of how to look after your photo canvas artwork. In the good old days of canvas printing the finish to your canvas print would have been flat matt, almost chalky….a nightmare to clean. These days it’s very different with sophisticated technology and natural preserving surface treatments. The protection CanvasRus uses on all of their canvas pictures safeguards against bumps and scuffs. Not only that but it also makes it easier to dust or, with a damp cloth, gently wipe over without any fear of damaging the beautiful printing quality.

So go on, jump online and visit CanvasRus. There are lots of ideas on how you can best enjoy your personal photos to canvas – from collages (where you can arrange the look of your photos on screen) to large scale multiple tiled canvas photos. Show off your favourite holiday, wedding or baby photos to all of your friends and family.

Canvas prints have to be the most thoughtful gift or present idea. Gift vouchers are available and very easy to redeem online.

Pixelated Interiors – the latest trend in digital canvas prints

Posted By Caroline
24/08/2010 17:31:54
There is a new trend within interiors, and the fashion world, that all the journalists are writing about - pixelated design prints. Bold colours in blocked grids makes for heavy yet attractively graphic designs; perfect for CanvasRus canvas prints.

Pixelation, whether seeing it in a blurred photo online or in our own photos when you zoom in too far, is something that most of us respond to negatively. This new trend turns our previous thought processes around to engage the viewer through colour and simple graphic shapes.

These beautiful large scale digitally printed blocks of colour are somewhat different to a slightly blurred personal photo though. It’s all about patterns of pixel colour and your interaction with it. And before you’re frightened off by the loud colour choices, soft tones work just as well with maybe a splash of dark chocolate.

Pixelated canvas wall art by CanvasRus is perfect if you’re wanting to add a touch of high end interior glamour to your home……without the price tag. Photo canvas prints are also an easier and more affordable option than wallpapering or hanging new curtains in this new trendy design. A single canvas print costs from £25 (30x30cm) and payment online is secure. You can also feel reassured that there’s always someone in the office, during office hours, to take your call if you have any questions.

If you’d like to read more about this trend click here to read Emily Jenkinson’s report (interiors writer for MyDeco) in The Independent and also Cristian Zuzunaga’s website for his own artwork and take on these abstract patterns.

Stuck for that thoughtful gift idea? Well look no further as CanvasRus has the answer all wrapped up. Order your recipient’s favourite photo beautifully made up onto canvas….and then take the plunge by writing good wishes, congratulations and heart felt thoughts around it!

Photos onto canvas are perfect for birthdays, leaving gifts, anniversaries, christenings and especially weddings. Signing canvas photos is a great way for getting everyone involved and is the most amazing keepsake for years to come.

Just as an example - the wedding reception Signed Canvas (above) is a great memory of the day where all of the friends and family can feel included. It’s also a wonderful ice breaker to get families talking to each other!

Unlike a wedding guest book, which can get lost or forgotten about during wedding festivities, a Signed Canvas standing on an easel can create a stunning and sentimental focal point to a room.

The canvas print above is a 30x20" (76x51cm) costing £60. Canvas prints can also be changed to black & white or sepia for free if this matches in with a wedding reception theme.

This particular cherished photo was just sitting on the fridge door of the engaged couple getting progressively knocked and bumped every time it was walked passed. Although it’s hard to be the first person to write on such a gorgeous photos to canvas the couple’s reaction at the end result was priceless. And the fact that you’re actually writing on a canvas picture creates increasing amounts of curiosity amongst the other guests who then want to add their best wishes too.

CanvasRus has always prided itself on supplying the very best materials and finished canvas products on the market. These beautiful canvases have now been improved by the introduction of an added protective finish which not only enhances the colours within your finished artwork, especially photo canvases, but also adds resilience to bumps and scuffs….and best of all it’s FREE!

For years CanvasRus has produced canvas prints previously treated with a stabilising solution. This was highly effective as it offered a good resistance for domestic use. Since the parent company Portobello Art Ltd is now the UK’s largest bespoke digital printer supplying decorative wall art to the interior design, hotel and leisure industries worldwide, they have been searching for a coating to give extra resilience as naturally hotels and restaurants want artwork with the lowest possible maintenance.

If choosing artwork as a present this Christmas seems tricky why not create a canvas print of your own? Thankfully you won’t need to get the paint box out, just a cherished photograph. CanvasRus, specialists in transforming photos onto canvas, believe that everyone owns a great photo or two which can be recreated into original works of art.

Before you start rummaging through your embarrassing childhood pics, there are a few hints and tips which could help when choosing.

- Think about what you want and where the canvas print is to be hung.

- What shape canvas you’d like…..landscape, portrait or square? Cropping your photo is part of the easy online ordering process.

- Don’t be afraid of scale. The sizes and prices web page can show you a proportional representation.

- It’s free to turn the photo into black and white or soft sepia. This can be a great way to tone down the impact of a large colour photo canvas.

CanvasRus recommend that "art is such a personal choice. The trick is to look for a photo that raises a smile or even tells a story. Certain photos of memorable events such the birth of a new baby, a wedding or anniversaries can make for a real keepsake."

The quality of a photo isn’t so important. Most people will be surprised to hear that it’s even possible to turn most mobile phone pictures into amazing canvas prints. CanvasRus also offer free retouching to remove red eye and date stamps.

Crop and frame online

When selecting your favourite photo have you ever thought that its subject is either too far in the distance or the wrong proportions for your chosen shape of canvas? Well, CanvasRus now has a free and easy to use Edit Crop facility as part of their ordering process. This shows your uploaded photo on screen so that you can crop it to create your perfect canvas print.

Edit Crop is a tool available on the canvasRus purchasing page. When clicked on your photograph appears on screen with movable crop lines. These lines are there to clearly define your chosen area of photo that you wish to be printed. It also cleverly replicates your chosen canvas proportions whether square or rectangular.

Tips & Ideas:
1. Simple photos are usually the best but a fussy background can be distracting. Try rotating the crop marks from portrait to landscape and see if this helps focus the subject.
2. You can keep the depth of a landscape photograph by including foreground objects and using them as a frame – for example trees, water or even architecture.
3. If you want to create a stronger impact with a portrait photo - try zooming in. Please be aware that the quality of the printed photo canvas will decrease the smaller your cropped area becomes. Our designers will advise you if the quality decreases too far.
4. If you want to create some added interest to a portrait photo try copping it off-centre. Then if the background content becomes distracting try clicking back a few pages and putting your photo into either sepia or black and white.

Note: you don’t have to worry about cropping out date stamps or red-eye removal as the team of in-house designers can amend these for free.

Edit Crop is an exciting new facility available as part of the Canvas Prints ordering process. It gives you the opportunity to upload your favourite photo and reprioritise its focal point and impact.

Have fun!

CanvasRus on TV

This last year has been an exciting one for TV appearances. Just a few shows you may have seen us in or some to watch out for!

We’ve supplied canvas prints to six different shows ranging from the BBC’s Prodigy through to the forth series of Hotel Inspector on Channel FIVE starting in a couple of weeks. We’re also proud of the fact that this is the fifth consecutive year we’ve helped ITV’s 60 Minute Makeover team. Series five had such enviable audience figures it has lead to a staggering 80 makeovers which are planned to be aired this winter.

Kyle’s Academy was a ten part series on ITV which gave five members of the public, who all lived in one house over two weeks, expert advice to resolve their personal problems. The house was decorated with 17 of our canvas pictures that were later raffled off by ITV for charity.

August of last year saw CanvasRus supply a range of canvas artwork, from their Scapes Gallery, to the show Living with Kimberly Stewart. This highly entertaining ten part series followed Kimberly’s move from LA to London and her search for two ideal flat mates.

CanvasRus were approached by Living TV for the second year running to supply prints on canvas to Britain’s Next Top Model. This year's glamorous and aspirational series 4 has successfully been screened in parts of the US and Australia too. Perfect timing as the CanvasRus.com.au (Oz) and CanvasRus.com (US) websites had both launched in 2007.

On location with 60 Minute Makover

Overcast and threatening to rain I arrive in Hurstpierpoint, West Sussex, to meet the crew and see the show being made. It’s 2 pm and the 60mm team are taking a well deserved lunch break before launching into their second half hour. The four large canvas prints being used for this episode are still in the back of the removal’s van.

Pleased with how the first half has gone some of the crew happily chat about the makeover’s progress. Without giving too much away I watch as the team organise the last of the wallpaper and pieces of furniture outside ready for the second half. What appears to be a very relaxed atmosphere, with Terri Dwyer’s 2 year old son Cadon entertaining the crew, is actually highly organised and efficient.

2.30pm and the call goes out to gather the makeover team together. Within 5 minutes they’re all at the bottom of the removal’s van ramp being given their chat through from Sophie Robinson, this makeover’s designer, about plans for the second half. Two minutes earlier she was seen applying her lipstick in the wing mirror of the show’s camper van….oh, the glamour of TV!

Cigarettes and water bottles removed from view - the filming starts. Within two takes, and much hilarity, the team of black t-shirts and white dungarees are raring to get into the house. The stop watch is started. The two daughters, who approached ITV for the 60mm, are busily swept into the house with all of the excitement but in actual fact looked incredibly nervous.

Standing outside there’s a subtle backdrop of accompanying rock music from the team’s catering van up the road. The production coordinator standing next to me shouts the time check "24 minutes" through the intercom system to the ear pieces of the team. Shouts and woops of excitement come through the open windows of the house as the team chivvy themselves on.

Twelve minutes left to go and finally the canvases - Breakers, Pebbles and Daisy Field get taken into the house. Sophie Robinson had chosen all four images about two weeks earlier from the online galleries. No-one other than the team is allowed into the house now so I have no idea which rooms the canvases are being hung. A few minutes later the Red Sea canvas is unwrapped and taken in.

With five minutes to go everything seems calm with the last of the furniture, plants and flower arrangements going in. "One minute to go" is called out to the team in the house and the shouts start up again. Outside there’s frantic chasing for two dining chairs and odd accessories as I keep well out of the way. Then the count down in seconds starts. All the team join in as they chant from 10, 9, 8, 7….. then the whistle blows and that’s it. Slowly and wearily the team pour out of the house, well, they have been on location since 7.30am.

Now the camera crew have an empty house in which to set their lighting equipment up before the big surprise. During this time Terri stands on the drive interviewing the two girls about their reason for the asking the 60mm team to transform their Dad’s home. A shout goes out as the Dad’s car is spotted driving down the road towards them. The body language of the girls and the colour that has drained from their faces says it all really. The Dad really has no clue about this makeover.

The rest can be seen on ITV this winter. Just keep an eye out for the Hurstpierpoint makeover and the four large canvas pictures.

Surely not chocolates again?! Alternatively why not choose something a little out-of-the-ordinary - a treasured photo onto canvas.

A piece of canvas wall art given as a gift is a guaranteed recipe for success whether holiday snap, fun family photo or precious memory. Simply add your treasured photo with a touch of sentiment, a pinch of thoughtfulness with a large spoonful of originality all resulting in years of enjoyment.....and no calories!

The simplicity of a cherished photo accurately recreated into a digital canvas print.....what could be better? Well, that would be the price. Photos onto canvas start from £20 for 12x12" (30x30cm).

All you have to do is click on 'canvasRus' in the menu above and let the START button navigate you to the simple four step ordering process.

Enjoy giving this Easter with CanvasRus.co.uk

Welcome to our new blog where we hope to generate a wide ranging and useful conversations on canvas prints and digital wall art.

I thought we might start with a response to an article by Will Cheung the editor of - goto Photography Monthly's website on the dummy’s guide to resolution.


Hooray! A little bit of light in the current madness of resolution and file size

Thanks for writing an excellent article, which to me seems the first time a mainstream magazine has acknowledged that you don't need 300 dpi to get a good image.

For our sins we are www.canvasrus.co.uk probably the largest on the online canvas printer and the bain of my life is tying to get people to understand that's it's not dpi that counts but file size (and please don't just blow it up in Photoshop). Indeed with the interpolation and colour management built into our rips we can get away with 72 dpi at a push. We actually print for a lot of photographers through our trade site www.portobelloart.co.uk my favourite being Beken of Cowes who just dumps a 5meg rbg jpg into our ftp and we get on with it, the results are stunning.

However most of website work though is from mums and dads, sending pictures of their kids using just about anything. Providing the file is over 500k and they only want a 20x16" canvas "you can still see the eyelashes", our problems come when someone starts messing about with the image, as what they see on their uncalibrated screen might well not be what we finally print out.

Anyway enough of my beef, we print more than 200 canvases a day and probably get 2/3 back a week so it's not too bad.
