Prints on canvas can be achieved by using many different types of processes that are available to those in the industry today.  With the invention of better inks and processes, it is possible to transfer images onto just about any type of material.  Many times paintings are reproduced in this way and can be quite valuable when offered as limited editions by the artist.  One of these processes is called giclee.  This process uses specialized ink jets to transfer images onto the desired materials.
 
Another process that is used is serigraphy.  This is akin to screen printing and uses specialized inks to transfer prints on canvas.  Colors are attached to both porous and non-porous parts of the press.  A rotary press is the one that is used most often, but there are a couple of others that exist such as a flatbed press and a cylinder press.  However, the latter two processes are not commonly used.

Many times a piece of artwork is only available for viewing at a museum or gallery and may not be purchased.  This means that there is no way to have the art without opting for prints on canvas.  Having a professional reproduction of the work can be a very valuable investment not to mention a great way to enjoy the art that would otherwise be unavailable. 

There are times that a work of art is highly valued, and thus, has a very expensive price tag.  For a lot of people, there is no way to afford the cost of such a piece of work.  Paintings can sell for a few thousand dollars all the way into the millions of dollars.  Most people just are not willing to invest that type of money into one piece of art.  However, reproductions that are released by the artist, or a representative of the artist, can come in a close second to having the authentic piece in their collection.  It is for this reason that many people like and will choose to collect reproductions in the form of prints on canvas.

Of course, there are other reasons why collectors choose to order a limited edition reproduction of a painting or piece of artwork.  The biggest reason would be for security matters.  Many individuals want to own an authentic piece of work but do not want to take the risk of having it on display and be damaged.  They may not want them in their home where it could be stolen or destroyed by fire or some other type of disaster.  For these reasons, they keep the original in storage and display the works that have been transferred to prints on canvas.  This is a great way to be able to own the piece without worrying that something may happen to it.  An art collector could continue to grow their collection without any worries of possible damage and be able to enjoy the art without actually having it displayed.  Because the reproductions are virtually impossible to detect by non professionals, this is the perfect solution.
