What is Canvas Print?


First of all, it is necessary to distinguish between canvas printing and canvas art print terms. In the art literature and print market, the words canvas are used side by side and frequently, causing confusion. In our art literature, toile canvas is more dominant and widespread than canvas / canvas. When specifying the technical characteristics of the original works of art, you will see oil on canvas, acrylic on canvas and / or mixed technique on canvas. Therefore, artistic and handcrafted works on canvas are described with ... on canvas. Other recipes create unnecessary confusion.


The words canvas are, in the Turkish literature, mostly identical to digital print fields and date of use dates back to the 90s. The convenience of use is due to the fact that the word poster only refers to prints on paper and its derivatives. The development of digital printing machines and the ability to print on a wide range of materials made it possible to print on canvas fabrics. This made it necessary to distinguish prints on canvas from the word poster, which refers to printing on paper derivatives. The word canvas printing and / or canvas printing has thus come up and is still in use.
