Follow the process below to order your custom canvas prints:

Your source image needs to be in an electronic file format with a .jpg extension. Most digital cameras produce .jpg files by default when you take a picture. For best results, use the largest image size and finest quality settings on your camera. If your source image is not in electronic format, you will need to obtain an electronic version using a scanner. Note, to achieve good quality custom canvas print results, we recommend minimum electronic image file sizes vs frame sizes. See the table to the right for guidance. The file you upload must meet these minimum requirements to ensure a good quality custom canvas print is achieved at your chosen frame size. Uploaded image file sizes larger than minimum recommended can be beneficial if you have them.

You now need to decide the width and height of the wooden frame you require for your custom canvas print and hence what its frame 'shape number' will be. The frame 'shape number' is simply a number you will use to ensure your source image is the correct shape to fit the wooden frame. The frame 'shape number' is simply the width of the wooden frame divided by its height. To enable selection from the available frame shapes the frame 'shape number' needs to be between 0.17 and 6.00 and to two decimal places i.e. a number like 0.67. A frame 'shape number' of 1.00 will be a square frame whilst a 6.00 or 0.17 will be a long and thin frame. A number in between 0.17 and 6.00 will be a frame shape somewhere in between – some frame 'shape number' examples are shown to the right as guidance. As an example, lets say you want a wooden frame with width 24" and height 36". Use our frame 'shape number' look-up table which shows the frame 'shape number' to be 0.67 for these sizes. Note that the look-up table can be used to find the frame 'shape numbers' for wooden frames with heights and widths between 8" and 48". Use the zoom facility in your browser to view the table more easily if necessary.

You will likley need to crop your source image using an image processing application to obtain the square or rectangular 'area of interest' that you wish to appear on the custom canvas print face plus when in full size a 3" band all around the edge. Note, you will probably need to estimate the width of this band when working on-screen in your graphics processing application. This square or rectangle must have the same 'shape number' as for the wooden frame size you have chosen. In our example this will be 0.67. Most graphic processing applications give this 'shape number' value on-screen if it is enabled to view. The 3" band around the edges of the full sized 'area of interest' is to cater for canvas that will be wrapped around and stapled to the back of the wooden frame.

You may prefer to work the other way round and determine the 'shape number' of the 'area of interest' on your source image and then use this to work out what wooden frame size would be appropriate from the look-up table. Lets say your 'area of interest' 'shape number' is 0.67. In this case you decide what length in inches the longest edge of the custom canvas print wooden frame will be to look pleasing when hung in the intended location. Lets say it is the height and it is 36". Look for 36" on the height bar of the frame 'shape number' look-up table and then run your eye across the associated row untill you find the number 0.67. When you find this number run your eye from the number up or down to the width bar and read off the width number which is in this case 24". In other words, your 0.67 'shape number' requires a wooden frame size of height 36" and width 24". If you cannot find an exact 'shape number' do not worry, just use the nearest number you can find. If in your case it is the width of the custom canvas print that is the longest side simply start from the width bar instead.
