At Pixocasso we pride ourselves in providing exceptional quality. We want our art to inspire you today and we want you to be proud to show of your art collection for many years to come.


Some large department stores offer canvas art but often by the time they arrive to the store, they have already started showing signs of degredation, such as stretcher bar lines, canvas cracking and a loose cavas stretch.

 

These are mass produced art pieces that are nice to look at, but can be found in many homes and are meant to last only a few months to a couple of years. Afterall, their goal is not to provide quality and unique art but profit with quick turn around times.

 

Who cares about Quality?

 

We do, and this is why ...

 

  1. Each art piece, from our gallary or your Photo 2 Canvas selection, is protected with laminate.

Many art companies choose not to take this crucial step to save money or choose to charge extra. We believe that it is as

optional as painting a car.


We use a high quality ClearShield matte laminate, generaously applied with no additional cost.

 

The laminate provides:

  • Protection from minor scatches, bumps etc.
  • Protection from water, dust, fingerprints
  • Protection from UV light (up to 200 years)
  • Anti-fading protection
  • Visibly enhances print colour
  • Allows you to clean with water and soap

 

The image to the left shows how different a canvas print can appear without proper lamination. As you can see the colour of the print is visibily enchanced, fade resistant and protected from any airborne contaminates. Quality makes a difference!

  1. Each art piece is framed with highest quality stretcher bars
    Stretcher bars can make or break a painting. No matter how beautiful the paining, a bad stretcher bar can ruin it in a few short months.

Most art companies choose low-quality lumber and straight-cut strecher bars. These types of frames are about 50% cheaper, but are meant to last only a few months. They will start twisting, and show a visible line impression on the canvas painting.

 

 

 

We choose thick (1.5 inch) high-quality stretcher bars.

 

 

We use kiln-dried fir wood, for resistance to warping and twisting.

        • Your canvas will be stretched to perfection for many years.

           

           

 

 

We use strecher bars with rounded edges to eliminate canvas line impressions.
    • Once a canvas line forms due to bad stretcher bars, it is permanent.

 

We use cross bars when needed, while others don't.

    • For larger paintings, we continue to choose quality over cost. Cross bars provide stability and reduce twisting. It is highly recommended for larger paintings, yet many companies choose to omit this crucial step.

       

       

Here are some tips to watch for when purchasing canvas products!

 

 

 

Poor quality non rounded stretcher bars often cause visible cracking along the image edges which completely ruin your art after short period of time.

 

 

 

Poorly folded canvas corners often crack very easily on cheaper canvas material and on unlaminated prints.

 

 

 

All our products are use high quality stretcher bars, 20mil canvas media, professionally strecthed, properly folded, and inspected one last time prior to dispatching.

 

 

All our products are ready to hang so all you have to do is enjoy your masterpiece!
