Frequently Asked Questions.

Canvas Print Questions


How long until I can expect my canvas to arrive?

Please allow 5-7 working days for delivery after full payment is received and confirmed. We will confirm the receipt of your payment by email. Deliveries can arrive at any time between 9am - 5.30pm local time, so if you are not in during the day it may be easier to arrange the delivery to be made to your work address.

Will the colours I see on the finished canvas be the same as on the proof that I see on my computer screen?

We cannot guarantee that the colours you see on your computer screen will be the same as what you receive on your printed canvas. Computer screens vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and as such display different results. We use top of the range colour callibration software and hardware and work to those standards. If there is a particular colour match you need please contact us for more info (you will need either a Pantone or a colour swatch to post to us).

Will my canvas print be the same as the image I see online?

The proof that we send you will show you exactly which part of your image will be visible and which part will fall into the “wrapping allowance”. The printed canvas you receive should be within millimetres of your proof.

If I order more than one picture, is the delivery charge more?

Delivery is free for all framed canvasses.

Do you do any more framed canvas sizes?

We can supply custom made canvas sizes as well. Just let us know what the size of the canvas is that you require by email or phone and we will give you a separate quote. The largest size we can print, however, is 1000mm height x any desired width (this is a framed finish measurement).


We also design and print multi-panel canvasses in either horizontal of vertical formats. The maximum number of sequential panels that we will print onto canvas is seven side by side in a vertical format.

Do you have a physical gallery or a venue where I can see examples of the printed canvas?

No, we operate purely as an online website with no showroom or retail facilities. We therefore cannot accept any personal visits at our premises. However, under the distance selling Regulations, we do operate a full refund policy if you are not happy with your purchase (see below for returned items).

Can you print photographs that I have taken myself or that have been sent to me?

Who is Fine Art Printing?

We're a bunch of regular people (with names like Peter, Colleen and Marcel) that didn't like what they had seen in the market place and decided to start our own canvas printing business the way we thought it should be done. To satisfy ourselves and our curiosity we went out and bought all our own stuff to test exactly what quality could be achieved. As a result we have a business that does not outsource anything. Yep - not a thing. We do everything ourselves. We buy our own raw materials and we see every piece we use to make our product. And we do it all in New Zealand.
