"The canvas prints delivered by H & P Greetings and manufactured/printed are designed to last over 100 years. They are strong and durable products that withstand environmental factors. The UltraChrome HD inks have a wide, rich color gamut range ensuring that match the exact color fidelity of the original. The inks are sprayed “hence the giclee application” upon canvas with extreme detail and vibrance creating a stunningly sharp image. The inks and canvas are water resistant and UV protected. The print can hang in direct sunlight and will remain fade resistant and as beautiful as it was the day it was printed. Because the canvas is water resistant you can also maintain the print by taking a damp cloth to the surface to remove dust. The wood used to create the stretcher bars for your prints are also of the highest quality. They are made from poplar trees which have extreme strength and stability, thus making the frame sturdy. The grain is straight and fine making it manipulable for uniform straight cuts when building custom frames. When top quality materials go into the production of a canvas print, the result is a fine work of art which we pride ourselves with at canvasgicleeprinting.com with whom H & P Greetings is proud to partner with to deliver her customers with and excellent product with certificate of authentic giclee print.
Stretcher Bar Size for your Custom Canvas Prints
Canvas is stretched tightly over the edges of a sturdy, wooden stretched bar frame. You may chose a thickness of 1.5 inch or 0.75 inch stretcher bar. With stretcher bars, you no longer need to frame the print. Your finished canvas print will be shipped ready to hang. No need to spend time and money searching for a custom frame to match the print and your interior. H&P Greetings makes the 0.75 inch available. Other options such as 1.5 is available upon request. Please e-mail special requests to H & P Greetings for price quotes.

For the above quality print: Once a high resolution digital file of your artwork is created, it is archived on our secured database at www.canvasgicleeprinting.com not on a public server. Your digital files are safe with us and will be accessed only to print repeat orders for you.
Tips for packing and shipping your original artwork-
Wrap the painting in foam or bubble wrap
Take extra care by cutting plenty of bubble wrap to fit over the corners
Slip the wrapped painting inside a clear bag
Use cardboard as padding and place a piece over the face of the canvas
When packaging multiple paintings, be sure to set the prints face-to-face or back-to-back
Place inside a sturdy cardboard box that is roughly the size of the painting
FedEx, UPS and Mailbox Express provide packaging service
Be sure to include a FRAGILE sticker on the box
Purchase insurance on the shipment
Beware of Steep Discounts: You may have come across several online canvas printing companies who offer steep discounts going as high as 85 percent off. The only way to offer these discounts is to increase the base price and slash it back down. Steep discounts also do not guarantee a quality product so when searching for a printing company be sure to search for information on why their quality and service exceeds others and then compare pricing. Remember the old adage which truly pertains to this industry “you get what you pay for”."
H & P Greetings will integrate additional inventory to include rolled prints that can make great gifts as well. If you have any questions about pricing, custom orders please contact
