Photo printing in Canada – Moribund or thriving?

Photo Printing

You may have heard the statement “photo printing is dead” bandied around in recent years. So is it true that the era of photo printing is coming to an end? We believe that this narrative is based on a misconception – an inevitable one perhaps, given the phenomenal rise of digital, but a misconception nonetheless. Far from being moribund, we think photo printing has a bright future in Canada. This article will explain why. And we’ll start by listing 3 factors which we believe have contributed to a revival of the print industry:

  1. The Development of Advanced Printing Technologies 

The ever-increasing demand for custom photo prints shows that nothing beats holding a printed photograph in your hands. Needless to say, of the 1.2 trillion photos we’re expected to take on our cellphones this year, the vast majority will be kept in cloud storage and hard drives. But physical prints are still a lot more popular than you might think.

More and more of us are benefiting from the industry’s new printing techniques – and discovering the exciting products on the market today. Technological advancements and a new generation of innovative companies have made the printing process fast, easy, and inexpensive. The big players are focusing on product innovations that will give them an edge over their competitors.

  • High Demand for Quality Photo Canvas Prints 

Now that technological breakthroughs have made it possible to produce high-quality photo prints at a lower cost, demand for custom wall decor like photo canvas prints has grown quickly. In fact, with their aesthetic appeal and newly affordable premium materials, canvas prints are one of the hottest home design trends right now.

One canvas print is all it takes to make your room unique. Unlike photos displayed behind glass or printed on glossy paper, canvas prints have a satin-matte finish that reduces glare to a minimum. And they have many other advantages too: multiple customization choices and edge designs, real wooden stretcher frames, and, last but not least, budget-friendly prices.

  • The Impact of COVID-19

COVID-19 has kept us at home for a greater proportion of our lives than ever before. What was once a relaxing place to unwind after a long day has been transformed into an office, school, restaurant, gym and playroom – often all at the same time. Many of us have responded to this new reality by making alterations and enhancements to our home decor, from major remodeling to just a few homely new features. Custom wall art – canvas prints, for example – has helped people separate their homes into work, cooking, and leisure zones, creating a distinct mood in each.

Custom home decor has also served as a reminder of the loved ones we’ve been separated from in these challenging times. It’s no surprise that custom lifestyle accessories such as pillows, blankets, and mugs have been in high demand during the COVID-19 pandemic.
