How to Care For Your Canvas Prints

Here are some basic steps you should know to get your prints looking their best.

Canvas prints are a fun and easy way to hang and display art in your home.  They are a great way of telling a story, and they look great in any home. But when you have a canvas print hanging on your wall, you want it to look as good as it did when you first got it. Fortunately, there are specific things you can do to help ensure your canvas prints last a long time. In this article, we will talk about how to care for your canvas prints.

  1. Keep your canvas prints away from direct sunlight.

It's a good idea to hang your canvas prints in a well-lit area of your home to bring out their vibrant colors. However, it's not recommended to place your prints in a spot where they will get exposed to direct sunlight. Direct sunlight can cause canvas prints to fade and look dull over time. It's best to display your prints in a room with soft indoor lighting instead.

  1. Hang your prints in a cool and dry area.

Always consider temperature and humidity in addition to avoiding direct sunlight. It's not a good idea to put your prints in hot or humid environments, so avoid places like bathrooms, kitchens, and other areas near heat sources. Excess heat might cause your canvas to expand over time, while moisture can promote mold growth. It's advisable to keep your canvas prints cool and dry by displaying them in larger spaces with good air circulation.

  1. Dust your canvas prints regularly.

Keeping your canvas prints looking new and fresh may be as simple as lightly dusting them with a soft cloth or feather duster on a regular basis. This will prevent any buildup of cobwebs, dust, and other debris. Don't press and never attempt to rub the surface with your finger or fingernail to avoid scratching it. Lastly, don't clean your prints using standard household cleaners. These contain chemicals that can damage your prints.

  1. Handle your canvas prints with care.

Be gentle when touching your prints and don't apply pressure to the canvas. If not handled with care, the canvas may stretch or rip. Also, if you need to transport your canvas prints, wrap them with paper. You could also cover them with a layer of bubble wrap for extra protection. Make sure to keep your prints separate from one another to avoid rubbing and scratching the print material.

  1. Store your canvas prints properly.

If you must store your prints, never ever stack multiple prints against each other and wrap each in acid-free paper, which is a type of protective material suitable for paintings, documents, and photographs. The lack of acid helps to avoid yellowing and preserves the quality, strength, and color of your artwork over time. The paper will also protect your canvas print from scratches during storage. 

Canvas prints are a great way to add a unique touch to your home or office. They are a great conversation starter and are a lasting form of artwork. Make sure to follow our tips to keep your canvas prints looking beautiful. With proper care, you will surely enjoy your prints for a long time.
