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.
