Canvas Prints VS Foam Board Prints!

Initially, consumers and business owners can feel confused between the choice of canvas or foam board print. To the untrained eye, they can seem equivalent and, thus, the decision confusing. As with all printing, the best decision will come through asking yourself how durable you need your product to be, considering your price point, and determining the multiple uses for your printed material. Fortunately, Foam Core Print will exceed your expectations on every account.

Foam Board Printing


First, let’s consider canvas poster printing. Selecting canvas foam board for your printing needs makes sense economically and is a popular option. Printing on foam board is often selected because the material of foam is lower cost, yet still an attractive display for simple quality projects and printing. When used for photographs or images, it gives extra support and a more impressive mounting. One point to consider before selecting foam is that since the side of the board is foam, it will not present as perfectly polished or even. Should the foam board printing be used for artwork, many purchase a frame to enclose their work. When it comes to presentations in the board room, school projects, or business displays, each user will need to be evaluated individually, for best results.

However, what if board printing doesn’t fit your vision or use? What if you want a higher-quality print?

Canvas Printing


Canvas Printing can turn your images or ideas into something worthy of a place on the wall. Canvas Printing is another well-loved option, which many opt for over Foam Board Printing due to its high quality. Canvas printed on a matboard give a more image-conscious premiere quality print to your image or design. Should you want a gallery-quality presentation, Canvas Printing is the best option, for not much more than Foam Board Printing would cost. As with Foam Board, you can leave your project unframed or mount your print in an attractive frame to enhance its attributes. Canvas printing is often preferred as it will is durable in humid environments (kitchens or bathrooms).

Canvas and Foam Printing are preferable to paper prints since they do not exhibit glares or reflections and can be printed large to create a remarkable wall-size presentation. Additionally, they can be hung with or without a frame, and (for artwork) will look as if painted directly onto the surface. Whichever option you choose, expect that you can have it shipped within 24 hours!

    Thanks for pointing out that a canvas can make your pictures worthy of being on the wall. I would think that it would be a good idea to have pictures from really important events, like weddings and graduations, printed out on canvas so that the pictures can last for a long time. These events are very important to many people, so you would want to preserve the memory by putting them on a canvas.

      I am thankful that this post shared that when looking to have acrylic painting done, it is important to ensure we choose the right paint medium. I do agree that the right paint is important as it helps to ensure that the outcome will be what we want it to be. I will definitely be mindful when I choose my paint.

          Kevin, the 3x12" size would be too small to stretch on traditional wooden framed gallery-wrapped canvas. However, the 3x12" size can be done on Canvas Poster material. Canvas poster board is just like standard paper-faced foam board but has a canvas-like texture on the medium's face.
