    I personally still prefer traditional framed/matted prints for the majority of my prints, but we’re considering getting one canvas print of one of our favorite pictures to make it stand out.

    I love my canvas print – My dad owns a frame shop so i have a TON of regular matted and framed pictures around my house and my mom had a groupon for canvas so i really couldnt resist!

    I’m a sucker for any picture that is nicely framed canvas or print though – personal preference and i think it depends on the picture as well. I personally like not having this picture matted and i liked the chunky frame

    here is my canvas 🙂

     my parents have a really beautiful picture in my dads store that is traditionally framed. I’ll post if i can find it.

    I prefer traditional frames.  The ones I offer have no glass (for glare), and the prints are mounted with a protective coating.  Mattes are kind of old school too.

    Gallery wraps have become popular because they are something new, and a lot of labs are offering good pricing and discounts via Groupon so many people DIY.  My experience has been that the quality can be icky for the cheaper suppliers.  Also, the image has to be prepped properly for canvas.

    The newest craze are organic bloom frames, my clients are ordering these like water  LOL

    @pinkshoes:  yeah you wouldn’t put glass on the canvas. I think canvas can look really great on its own but a nice frame really makes it pop (plus if would be a little bit cheaper since you wont have to pay extra for glass and matting – though the cost of the canvas might cancel that out – wait for a groupon!) you cant go wrong either way though – i have some really beautiful tradionally framed pictures in my home. the canvas wedding pic is actually the only canvas i own at the moment.

    you can buy non-glare glass as well as UV protected. There are tons of options out there but the price goes up.

    @USER876:  Those organicbloom frames are so neat!
