Artists have been using this material for a long time, but now it is possible to purchase canvas art reproductions.  Throughout the years, copies have been made using many different types of techniques.  In the earlier times the painter had to paint each copy again based from the original.  Then techniques using stone templates were popular and used by many printing companies.  Both of these options produced nice results, but they weren’t stellar or award winning duplicates.  They required a lot of time and even more expense.  This made reproductions something that only the wealthy elite of the community could afford.

Times have changed since then.  Canvas art reproductions really took off after the printing process known as Giclee was invented in the 1980s.  Specialized ink jet printers were designed and tweaked to be able to print these images on various types of materials.  This changed how duplicates were made forever.  Using a computer to store the information took away the need to create a template for each color, which was used in the process of screen printing. 

Giclee has wonderful final results and the images are comparable to the original.  Canvas art reproductions often mirror the original work so well that they are praised as being indistinguishable from the original.  If the biggest compliment is to be copied then it must be the superb compliment to be copied leaving no lines to be drawn between the copy and the original.
 
Canvas art reproductions are beautiful because of the material they are printed on.  It can be presented in so many different ways, unlike its paper counterpart.  This type of material can be framed, but it doesn’t have to be.  That is because the option exists to have it gallery wrapped, which means that the material stretches all the way around the frame to hide it, leaving a nice wrapped look to the end product.  This involves stretching the image over the frame.  This is most often how people prefer to purchase canvas art reproductions.  The reason for this is the sophisticated gallery appearance that it preserves.

This type of material has long been the favorite of painters because it can hold up to any amount of paint, unlike paper.  There are no problems with over saturation or sagging.  This is also the exact same reasons that printers state for choosing it over paper.  It is made of cotton which makes it extremely durable and the endurance also means that the copy will last a lot longer on this type of material. 

This type of a copy is also very easy to store and keep clean.  There are chests that can be purchased to store these types of works in.  Some are even equipped with humidity control devices.  There are also sleeves that can be purchased to slide these works into.  This would be extremely important for someone who is moving or will be gone for a long period of time and must store their prints.  The ease of storage is also a great advantage for the printer as well.
