Canvas Gallery Wraps or Standout Prints?

October 22, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

My job is not done after I've only taken your pictures at your photo session. I am a full service studio that provides a finished printed product to my clients. I color calibrate my editing monitor to my professional printing labs and vendors to ensure accurate and consistent printing results. Why does this matter? Because I want to deliver you a beautiful product ready to hang on your wall, put in your favorite frame, or that you can turn the pages of to enjoy your images. You deserve that level of service and quality for your memories! 

For my local clients, I show you what these products look like with the samples I bring to your viewing and ordering appointment. I can even show you how they will look in real size on your actual wall! How cool is that?! For my out of town clients, I do the best I can with technology to give you this same experience in helping you choose the right sizes and products for your home. 

Two types of Wall Art that I offer are Canvas Gallery Wraps and Standout Prints. The question I get asked the most from out of town clients that I can't physically bring my samples to, is what is the difference between them. I wanted to write this post to help explain the difference. 

Both are great choices for wall art. I have both hanging in my home and love them for different reasons. It most likely comes down to your decor and which look you prefer with where you are displaying your images. Canvas can look a more traditional whereas I think Standouts tend to look more modern. Both come ready to hang and neither requires a frame. 

Canvases have a little more formal elegance to them in my opinion. This is a sample of a 20x30 Canvas.

Canvases have beautiful, rich colors which look lovely on the textured material. They have a protective coating that allows them to be wiped clean for dust.

The image wraps around and is stretched around the 1.5" edges of the canvas.

The canvas is finished with plain black backing. Depending on the size, they will come ready to hang with either a wire or sawtooth hangers. They also come with small clear bumpers you adhere to the four back corners of the back to protect your wall. This is my sample that gets knocked around in my sample bag, so I just hadn't put those on. :) 

Standouts have a very clean look to them and are more economical than a canvas. Your print is lustre coated for protection and mounted onto a .75" lightweight, stiff foamcore board.  This is a sample of a 16x24 standout print. 

The sides of the standout boards are protected by a black or white smooth matte paneling which gives your standout a fully finished and sealed look. 

The back panel contained pre-drilled holers making them easy to hang on simple nails or screws. 

Here is a side by side comparison of an 11x14 size canvas and standout. 

Notice the canvas will standout further from the wall with the 1.5" edges versus the .75" edge of the standout. 

Either of these products will display your images beautifully in your home. If you have more questions, want to see more samples, or want to plan your session with me to create the gorgeous images for these products, please contact me!
