For years Paterson Photography has been the leader in canvas printing in Lethbridge & southern Alberta. While other places will print on the cheapest canvas to give you low prices and low quality Paterson Photography has gone the route of quality and service so your images will look the best they can and last so you can enjoy them for years to come.
We were the first lab in Lethbridge to offer digital canvas prints, the first to offer coated canvas and still the only one to offer this (this is recommended by the canvas manufacturers to preserve the canvas), the first to offer wide format canvas prints on actual canvas and we are still leading the way today!
Our services range from standard canvas prints, stretched canvas (5/8" and 2"), coated canvas prints and floater frames.
We also will advise you if canvas is not the way to go to get the best print as many times canvas will not suit the print.
When you trust Paterson Photography with your canvas prints you will be amazed at the service and the quality!!!
The different canvas services that we offer:
- Canvas prints - these are canvas prints that are printed to the requested size. Can be coated or uncoated. These prints can also be mounted on foam board and framed to display.
- Stretched canvas - These prints are printed larger than the requested image size and then stretched on your choice of 5/8" or 2" stretcher frame. They may be displayed as is once stretched. Can be coated or uncoated.
- Floater Frame - We take your stretched canvas and mount it in a floater frame. In my opinion this the THE way to show off your canvas!!!! Looks more finished than just a stretched canvas and has more depth than just a standard canvas mounted on foam board.
A note on coating.....
You are free to choose a coated or uncoated canvas print. Myself I strongly recommend the coating and so do the canvas manufacturers, if you're looking for quality and spending the money on a canvas why not get the coated so it lasts!! I have seen uncoated canvas ruined in only weeks because the ink ran or someone touched the canvas, coating will stop that!! If you order a canvas uncoated IT CANNOT BE COATED LATER, I use two special canvases and one is designed for coating and to be stretched after coating.
