Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What's the difference between Original Artwork and Prints?
'Original artwork' is the authentic painting, craft, etc. made by the artist (includes the brushstrokes, paint media, ornaments, etc.) versus a 'print' which is a reproductive copy of the authentic piece (ex. a poster, canvas print, pillow cover, etc.)
What is a Canvas Print?
A canvas print is a reproductive print of the original artwork that is printed on canvas paper and stretched over a wooden frame (similarly to the original artwork.)
The print, however, lacks the paint, brushstrokes, and other original features. It gives buyers a chance to purchase a reproduction as closely matched to the original as physically possible.
How do I know what Size I should Buy?
We recommend first picking the area of your home, business, or residence you’d like the piece in. Then, measure the desired area using a ruler, tape measure, or similar measuring device. You could also measure an item of your desired sizing and place it in the area (for reference.) There are also similar techniques on YouTube.

How should I care for my Original Artwork and Canvas Prints purchases?
For original artwork, do not clean paintings with abrasive chemicals such as lye, detergents, dish soap, and other similar cleaning agents. Occasionally dust with a slightly damp cloth. Do not remove backing and support from the canvas. Custom framing should be left to a professional framer; do not frame manually.
For canvas prints, do not expose prints to direct sunlight. Avoid environments with high moisture levels and occasionally dust with a slightly damp cloth. Do not manually laminate your canvas.
