Detailed instructions – How to order a canvas push pin map from Lumaprints

You can order a sturdy, ready to hang canvas push pin map from Lumaprints. I work with them everyday and their products are simply stunning. This canvas option is perfect as a second anniversary gift (“Cotton” anniversary).

If you plan to order a canvas please let me know so that I can add extra inches around your file. Those extra inches are used for folding the edges of the canvas print, so that the image continues on the edges of the canvas. This is called “image wrap”.

Before showing you the screenshots, I have to say that you can use coupon code blursbyai at checkout for 50% off product value (excluding shipping). Such a deal, right? Write it down on a piece of paper or write it down on your phone, but don’t forget to enter the code at checkout!

I’ll show you how easy ordering is.

You have to select: Order canvas print -> 1.5″ thick -> then the size:

Next, you’d upload the file you purchased from me: For a canvas print I usually send a file that has two extra inches around for folding, and that’s the one you are supposed to use.

There are several options to choose from. If you select “digital proof to be provided“, you’ll be sent a preview of how your canvas print is going to look before printing. An actual person will send you this preview 🙂

For canvas border option “Image wrap” is what you’d choose if you want the image to continue on the sides of the canvas. This is why I had sent you a file with two extra inches around for folding. If you don’t have this file, kindly message me and I’ll send you one.

For hanging, most common choice would be sawtooth hanger installed. But you can select a wire if you like it better. The optional black backing serves as dust cover.

And now it is when we select the inks and finish and  the foamcore underlayer that will provide support for the push pins:

For the finish, I like the archival pigment ink with satin varnish: the archival pigment inks are more true to color under different light sources. This means that your printed item will be pretty similar to what you see on your screen. And satin varnish is what you see in the pictures of my printed products. This satin varnish protects the inks but it is not too glossy.

Lumaprints makes these canvas prints in 3 business days, but if you are in a rush, they have a next day production rush option. It’s useful if you have a deadline!

We’ve finished selecting options. Now you’d click on “add to cart” and proceed to checkout as usual. Don’t forget to use coupon code blursbyai at checkout for 50% off!

Yay! 50% off!

That’s it!
