It seems to be catching on among photographers and artist—having their work printed on canvas. And the good news is that your Roland printer can do this.

Your new customer

Canvas prints are particularly suited to art usually produced on canvas in the first place—it gives the print a more authentic look. But this doesn’t mean that usually “smooth-finish” pieces such as photographs can’t or shouldn’t be reproduced on canvas with a pleasing result; they certainly can. I know a Calgary bird photographer that regularly receives orders for prints on canvas.

Stanley’s stocks a canvas supplied by Roland for use on your Roland equipment. So why not consider positioning your shop as a canvas printing specialist and go after that market of photographers and artists that seems to be growing?
