Ever since The Odee Company even flirted with wide format printing, I was hungry to see how Instagram photos would convert to canvas. Before we get in to some one of the samples, just know we are printing on high quality canvas, and using HP Latex printers. These inks dry immediately and are then coated for an added layer of protection as well as an added layer of BAM; aka, quality enhancement (Odee’s secret touch developed in 1923)!
Instagram is brilliant from a social standpoint, but artists and amateurs prefer it’s simplicity of adding photo layers. These layers are important when it comes to large canvases. IMPORTANT, do not print a canvas without layers. I repeat, DON’T DO IT. You are just wasting wall space if you’re printing a photo on canvas, even if it is a nice professional hi-res shot. Add filters, preferably through Instagram so that this canvas resembles the true canvas function….ART. Take this sample for instance:
1) Standard Photo of my main man Hank from my iPhone. Cool shot. I liked the delicate reflection the window provided. This could potentially work well as a canvas due to the enthusiasm of the subject and the bib…but the colors are still too flat for a wall hanger:
2) Let’s now throw this puppy into Instagram so that we can add a nice artsy filter that will work nicely on a wall. Strong splash of color enhancement has turned my Hank into art.
3) Printing 36×48 on Printer 1 of 2 HPl26500
4) Coated and Hung
