Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):
1. What is the difference between Premium Canvas, Textured Watercolour and Enhanced Matte Prints?
Premium Canvas is 100% cotton material and is made to last over 200 years without colours fading. Canvas looks like an original oil painting and is the highest quality print you can get on the market. Canvas has been used by traditional artist for hundreds of years and is what you will see in many art museums around the world.
An additional feature of Canvas is that it can be stretched and framed without glass so you can walk up to the painting and appreciate all the details without a glare. To protect the Canvas we apply a special gloss UV scratch resistant coating to ensure your artwork lasts for several generations.
Our Premium Canvas paintings are initially offered and Limited Edition hand-signed prints by the artist Kanwar Singh so it is a collectible item as he only signed the 100 copies worldwide. The Canvas prints are offered in 5 different sizes but can also be customized to a specific size to fit your wall space.
Both the Textured Watercolour and Enhanced Matte prints are Fine Art prints on paper using the same high quality archival inks for both. The Watercolour is a thicker stock paper which absorbs the colour better giving it a more vibrant look. The Watercolour also has a bit of a texture making it look and feel closer to an original painting. The Watercolour is offered in 3 different sizes so depending on your wall space, and keeping in mind that a frame will add 3" to all sides, you could opt for a bigger size compared what's offered for the enhanced matte paper.
The Enhanced Matte paper is also a high quality piece, it's not a poster. The paper is fairly thick and looks very nice. The enhanced matte painting is only offered in 1 size.

2. Do you offer Framing?
We do not offer a framing for Kanwar Singh's artwork however we are happy to walk you through the process and recommend a local framer in your area if we have a contact. The main reasons we do not include framing is the added costs and risk of damage when sending frames via the postal service. We recommend that you seek an experienced framer in your area. Price ranges can vary a great deal so it is always advisable to get more than one quote whenever possible. Generally you should expect to pay a third of the print cost for a good quality 3 inch wood frame. Canvas prints generally cost less to frame than paper prints since they are stretched and will not need to be placed behind glass.
