Masters 'BIG Canvas' Promotion...
Why BIG canvases? We have calculated sizes that exactly fit your camera images to standard roll widths eliminating wastage to provide maximum value. Our fine art cotton canvas has a traditional woven texture requiring images to be big and bold to bring out the finer details. Amazingly even lower resolution digital camera images can be printed at dramatic sizes as we have special software to increase your image sizes: Examples If you are unsure just use our file transfer page (the red + above) to Send your files for a free evaluation and quote on any additional imaging or retouching I suggest.
If you wish we can optimise your images for free before printing to ensure you end up with a stunningly beautiful BIG Canvas! If your images are too small we have special 'Fractal' enlarging software. We can quote on any extensive restoring or retouching options and provide 'before & after' online proofs for your approval before printing. See Samples
Makeovers: David Myers personally analizes your pictures before

We can also retouch your images. View our 'Fixed Images' page
create free 'Fine Art' border finishes and 'image wrap' effects:
canvas prints need to be stretched around a frame we add a FREE 38mm
white or coloured border around your image for the stretcher frame sides
- If you want to 'Wrap' the image around the sides we can clone, expand
or 'mirror' part of your canvas front image outwards into this area.
A further FREE 18mm unprinted border is then added for back stapling
the canvas onto the stretcher frame.

The professional methods and options that make the 'DMA difference'...
Image 'Optimisation' Lots of companies now offer 'Prints-on-Canvas' but we are imaging specialists not a discount print house that just dumps your file ut to a printer! We professionally evaluate every image, correct the tones, colours, sharpness and offer additional professional retouching services to produce the best possible print. We have a 30 year history working with digital images, technical and cosmetic retouching, photo restoration and fine art printing. We provide free online proofing and consulltation to perfect your images. Discount services print 'Decor' canvases Digital Masters crafts fine art prints!
We use 'Museum Approved' archival print systems: The same Epson printers as the ones that produced the recent Amsterdam Rembrandt Exhibition. These units print high density oil based pigment on 350gsm acid free artist's canvas - just like a real oil painting. We air cure and harden the pigment image for 24 hours and add three coats of anti-abrasion UV lacquer increasing fade resistance to over 85 years! The sizes listed utilise the full width of the rolls reducing wastage and optimising the prices!
Not all canvas is fine art canvas! The 350gsm Epson Premium Fine Art Water Resistant Canvas we use has a very fine bright white coating that allows the true canvas weave to show through. Many other companies use flimsy nylon canvas that costs half as much and has a matt plastic coating with an embossed 'honeycomb' pattern. The use of premium semi-gloss canvas and gloss lacquer brings out the richness of the colours and produces stunning fine art black and white imagery. Matt canvas can't provide this richness as blacks appear as dark grey. Our 'Fine Photography' exhibitors use our new lustre and gloss fibre papers for this reason.
Image Rescue: Are your camera images too small for BIG prints? We have special software to sample them up: Examples. If your monitor is uncalibrated it will likely be too bright and you will be producing very dark images! We can adjust the tones of your images, optimise for fine art printing and perform retouching and photo restorations. See some recent Image Makeovers: Here
Unframed Canvas: You can order rolled canvases to significantly reduce packing and shipping costs for interstate clients. We still add the wrapping borders you need for stretch framing and we print wrapping guide lines on the edges to assist your framer.
Optional Stretch Framing: We use the professional framing services of Framing Workshop one of Australia's top fine art framers. They custom build rigid, heavy duty 38mm section frame from acid free fully seasoned wood. (We don't use flimsy 25mm section frames or 'frame kits' that can shrink and develop loose joints!) The stretched canvas is neatly backed with paper, fitted with wall 'bumpers' and corrosion resistant hanger wire - large frames are cross braced for strength - top craftmanship!
We can create various border finishes and 'image wrap' effects: As canvas prints need to be stretched around a frame we need to add a 38mm white or coloured border around your image for the stretcher frame sides. If you want to 'Wrap' the image around the sides we can clone, expand or 'mirror' part of your canvas front image outwards into this area. A further 18mm unprinted border is then added for back stapling the canvas onto the stretcher frame.
