Shutterfly Now Offering Canvas Prints
You can now have your digital images printed on canvas. Shutterfly has announced that users can now choose to have their pictures printed on hand-stretched canvases in three sizes: 16″x20″, 20″x30″ and 24″x36″. Prices start at $89.99.
The canvas is hand-stretched and mounted on wooden frames. The image is printed to the edge of the canvas so that the image wraps around the frame, “giving photos a gallery finish”. The canvas is coated to prevent damage from UV light and excess moisture.
For best quality, Shutterfly recommends an image of at least 3 megapixels.
