With the look of authenticity and the affordability, cheap canvas prints are the ideal reproductions of art. Many artists prefer this type of material on which to paint their masterpieces, so it is only fitting that when buying a copy, it should also be on the same type of material. This gives a professional appearance to any reproduction.
Over three decades ago, a new process called giclee was being used for rough drafts in the media arts such as newspapers and magazines. The method first began using dyes which did not last long enough to be considered a viable option for other types of printing such as for copies of artwork. However, the method continued to be perfected, and the dyes were substituted with archival inks. The process became the preferred type of reproduction method for copies of artwork. Now, through the use of this technologically advanced type of reproduction, cheap canvas prints are affordable and available to all collectors.
Some people love to collect fine works of art as cheap canvas prints because they can acquire many more this way than they could through buying the originals. Others buy both the originals and the copies so that the original can be stored, and the authentic appearing cheap canvas prints are displayed in the home or the office.
Many people wish to have their copies done on this type of material because it is often the same material that the artist uses to create the original. This is many artists’ preferred choice for a painting surface because the cotton woven material is able to hold paint without bleeding or fading.
