Q. Does it matter who owns the copyright for an image?
A. You must own the copyright (or have written permission from the owner of the copyright allowing reproduction) before we can print your image (this is an important condition of our standard terms). If the image is a photograph or artwork that you have taken or produced yourself then you own the copyright. If, however, you have commissioned the work (e.g. you have asked a professional photographer or an artist to produce a wedding photograph or a painting) then it is highly likely that you will not own the copyright. But don't worry; if this is the case we are happy to assist you in trying to obtain written permission.

Q. Is the surface of the printed canvas sealed or protected in any way?
A. The printed canvas is sealed (unless otherwise instructed) with two coats of 'liquid laminate'. Each coat is hand applied and the finished surface of the canvas takes on the appearance of a semi gloss varnish finish, as seen on traditional oil paintings. This coating helps enhance the colours of the print,protects the surface from scratching and improves ultraviolet protection. The finished surface is also ‘wipe clean’.
