    Printing photographs :) Onto Canvas :eek:

    Here's one out of left field - Do any of you know anywhere good (cheap) for getting digital photographs printed on eg. 2ft by 2ft canvas? I've been asked by our SLT to put some student photographs on the dining room wall like that

    (just waiting for Simon from CPLTD to come along and say "we'll do em for a fiver fella")

    FOTO.com United Kingdom : Photo on canvas

    Do a 2ft square canvas print for £53, which is pretty reasonable. There are lots of other places, but if you look at the prices they're all roughly the same. I've used Foto.com for 12x8 prints before, and was impressed with the quality and speed of delivery, not tried the canvas prints thou.

    Mike.

    Are they sure they want canvas.... they would get dirty easy.

    I would recommend to them to get them printed on a proper photo paper and then framed (and if glass in the frame is a issue get it replaced with Perspex/Plastic) which will also make it easy to clean.

    Ooh.... Health and Safety... I hope whoever is hanging them has done a risk assessment. High vis vests... orange cones with flashing lights... safety training... visors... hard hats... sealed-off exclusion zone...
