Print Your Pet Photo on Canvas

At, we believe that canvas is more than just canvas. It’s something you can use to print memories that you can cherish forever. 

What better way, therefore, to use a canvas than for a pet portrait?

For many people, pets are an integral part of the family. Once you have a pet, it’s almost impossible to imagine what life would be like without them. You wonder how you ever managed to survive without them by your side in the past, and hope that you never have to in the future. 

Dogs, cats, bunnies, donkeys, ducks, chickens, mice - whatever: it doesn’t matter what pet you have. What matters is that they’re there for you when you need them. Pets have a way of making you feel as if your life is complete. They’re vital companions on the journey with you. And, most importantly, they never let you down. 

People choose to put all kinds of things on canvas, but here at Canvas Prints, we think that pet portraits are just as valuable as anything else. With a pet portrait on your wall printed on canvas, you can create a permanent shrine to their existence, and celebrate them as members of your family. It’s the perfect homage to your furry - or not so furry - friend. 

Enshrine Your Pets With Artistic Canvas Prints

Canvas portraits look different from regular prints. They have depth, vibrancy, and artistic vitality that you don’t often get when you just hang a photo on the wall. With a print, you get the sense that an artist created the image and can experience the colors in all their richness. 

If you choose us for your pet print, then you get something with real artistic quality. We take the image of your pet you send us and then use our state-of-the-art printing machinery to create something that looks stunning: fitting for something so important and central in your life. 

When we say that our printing machinery is cutting edge, we’re not joking either. We use new, state-of-the-art Eco-Solvent Inks on our array of Epson S60600L 60" Production Presses along with PrintFactory custom color calibration system to give life-like balances to your photos and illustrations.

Eco-Solvent inks are one of the most environmentally friendly inks in production today. With two 4 color printheads, we are able to reach 98% of the visible color gamut, meaning incredible color reproduction.

You can get even more creative with canvas prints with our dynamic wall displays, custom canvas collages, and new triptychs! Canvas wall displays utilize multiple canvases and images to display an array of photos as one cohesive image. You can tell the complete story of you and your pet's journeys together with a custom canvas wall display.

You can do the same, in a smaller footprint, with a canvas collage. We have 8 unique collage orientations that allow for up to 16 photos of your and your furry friend. Finally, a great way to showcase your favorite image of your pet is with our new canvas triptychs! A triptych uses 3 large canvases to display one image in a truly attention-grabbing way. 

Pet Portraits Are Awesome

Owners love their pets. Animals have a habit of changing you. When you first pick up your pet from the store or the rescue center, you imagine that they’ll just be a peripheral part of your life, like a hobby.

But before long, you find that they’re dominating your thoughts and you can’t bear to be without them. Something as simple as going on holiday suddenly becomes a traumatic experience as you realize that you’ll have to leave your pet behind in the care of somebody else. 

Pets have a way of weaseling your way into your unconscious. You never used to wake up in the night in a fit of cold sweats after a nightmare about the safety of your animal.

But now that you’re a responsible pet owner, it seems like a nightly occurrence! One day, as you sit next to your pet, you realize that they completely changed who you thought you were.

It’s no surprise that you want to be reminded of your pets wherever you go. And what better way to do so than with a canvas picture hanging on a wall in your home?

The fact that canvas images look stunning gives you the perfect excuse to be mischievous. You finally have the cover story you need to indulge in the worship of your pets.

You can place as many images of your ducks, fish, parrots, dogs, cats, or whatever else, around the house, and nobody can complain. After all, who doesn’t want to live in a home where beautiful artwork adorns all the halls, corridors, and lavatories?

High-Resolution Images Are The Way To Go

Of course, the quality of your pet print is only as good as the images that you have of them. 

Here’s a pro-tip if you want to make your portraits look totally awesome: take ultra-high resolution images. The higher the resolution, the more detail the printers have to work with, and the better the finished product will look. 

Fortunately, taking high-quality images is relatively straightforward with today’s technology. Just whack your DSRL or smartphone camera into the highest resolution setting and take a few snaps of your pets. Choose the ones you like most and then send them off for printing. It’s that simple.
