Our glossy finish formula is specially designed for pigmented inks, so this gallery wrapped option lovingly recreates the texture and reflectivity of oils on canvas. It also lends a fine art feel to photographs and offers a more true-to-life reproduction. Glossy canvas prints have a slight warm tone and are made from an acid-free poly/cotton blend. They help to make an image “pop” more, giving the illusion of depth by enhancing vibrant tones.
The texture and weight of a gallery wrapped matte canvas brings fine art reproductions one step closer to the originals, offering a softness that invites attention. Matte canvas has a bright white tone and is made from an acid-free poly/cotton blend. Prints with a matte canvas finish provide low glare and tend to be the best choice for high contrast images containing complex color combinations or very dark colors, such as black.
Essentially, the only difference between glossy and matte is in the "shine" of the canvas. Glossy prints have a subtle lustrous coating applied to them which causes the canvas to reflect light better. Matte prints do not have this coating.
Picture your dining room table before and after you wipe it down with furniture polish. Before, it's a little flat looking. While after, it's shiny. That's the difference between matte and glossy.
But don’t worry too much about your choice, because whether you opt for a glossy finish or a matte finish, your canvas print from Wallasso - The Wall Art Superstore will look amazing!
