Historic Centuries-Old Style Called Triptych Reborn with Prints On Canvas

Triptych is a work of art that is similar to panel paintings, three to be exact, which is why it’s divided into three sections. The three even hand crafted panels that are hinged together and can be arranged in different ways freestanding. It is therefore a type of “polyptych”, the term for all multi-panel works. The middle panel is generally the largest and it is flanked by two smaller related works, however today there are many triptychs that use equal-sized panels like the ones on our website. The multi-panel form arises from early Christian art, and was a popular standard format for altar paintings from the Middle Ages onwards. Its geographical range was from the eastern Byzantine churches to the Celtic churches in the west. Today, however, triptychs are a popular interior design go-to element to make any space look special.

Modern Photographic Triptych Printed On Canvas At MakeCanvasPrints

A photographic triptych is a common style used in modern commercial artwork. The photographs are usually arranged with a plain border between them. The work may consist of separate images that are variants on a theme, or may be one continuous larger image split into three panels. Just about any landscape photos look great, or any photo with a wide format. Then again, you could always turn our template sideways in our customizer, and make the image span 3 panels vertically instead. The arrangement could also be staggered at a diagonal for a more playful design.

Baby Photos

Baby photos always are a way to melt mom’s heart. If there is a baby in the household, you can take creative photos of the baby in the comfort of the home. Instead of going to a professional photography studio and spending a lot of money, you have everything you need already. Drawing inspiration from a creative mother, such as Queenie Liao, you can create fantasy scenes with objects found around the house. Queenie creates vibrant scenes with common house hold items such as linen and baby toys. You can also cut out shapes using felt, that can be found at a local crafting store. Most images also will be of good enough quality for printing if taken with a smart phone. But if you have your own camera, then that is even better! This is a great way to create something unique for mom.

How to Make Your Own Triptych Canvas

make your own triptych canvas

We are excited to share with you our new product, the triptych canvas. The triptych canvas set is stretched over 3 8×10 canvases totaling 24” x 10”. The three canvases are stretched on a 1.5 inch frame and come ready to hang on the wall. We already made the measurements for you so that it is easy for you to make your own triptych canvas. Without having to put in the guesswork of where the photos have to line up, it is a simple four step process.

Panoramic Triptych

Panoramic photos work great as a triptych canvas, since these photos tend to be longer in length than the standard photo. Landscapes are the most popular panoramic type photo and are compatible with the triptych canvas look. Breaking a landscape photo into three panels is a great way to add an extra design element to the image. This wouldn’t work as well as a photo with a single subject matter, such as a portrait, but if done right, it can still be done. Another type of image that would work well as a triptych canvas is abstract art. This look is often found in modern homes with large artwork on the walls. The canvases we have set up as triptych are smaller in size, but still can be compatible as small abstract art hanging in an office.

Make Your Own Triptych Canvas with Ease

Like we said earlier, the guesswork is done for you, so that you can make your own triptych canvas with ease. The images will be fully wrapped around the frame, and the measurements have already been made. When side-by-side, the canvases will line up evenly and the images will align perfectly. Therefore, the edges of the canvas will not be left blank, but will also have the images seamlessly carrying over to the next canvas. The gallery wrap look of the triptych canvas can be easily designed by you.

Designing a Photo Canvas

When designing the photo canvas, MakeCanvasPrints.com breaks the process into 4 easy steps to follow. Step one is uploading the image, step two is the option to add text, step three is adding a background, and step four is saving your design!

Photo Canvas Prints for the Holidays

2015 is coming to a wrap! It is mid-November and you are enjoying your sweaters and a warm cup of tea. And before you know it, the Christmas tree will be up and everything will feel a little cozier. It’s a special time of the year when you get to look back at all the awesome things that you have done. Maybe you are reminiscing about the trip that you took to the Bahamas or the new niece that was born. Or this was the year that you graduated from high school and you started the next part of life adventuring to a new city to study in a collage. Whatever the events may be, I am sure that you have some special pictures that could be turned into a lovely photo canvas.

Picture Perfect Photo Canvas

With all of the new picture taking technology that has been popular this year from the updated iPhone cameras to the new Go Pro to the drones, our personal picture collections are stuffed with memories. But if you really think about it, there are probably a couple pictures that you can pick out of a selection that really capture a special day or event. That one special photo that sums up all the great memories is the one that would definitely look the best as a photo canvas.

Simple and Sleek

A great thing about a photo canvas is that you don’t have to frame the canvas. They are well made, as the canvas is stretched onto a wooden frame. This gives the image some dimensions and defines the image that is hanging on the wall or sitting on a desk. The look is very simple and sleek, which gives it a modern look. This makes it an easy piece to add to any home or office.

Memories and Moments

Capturing a special moment or photograph of someone is easy nowadays with the technology we have available literally right at the end of our own fingertips. Before, creating a photograph was a tedious task of carrying a large camera, hoping that the perfect moment was captured, and then developing the picture before we got to see exactly what was even captured. Back then, photos really came to life through a camera. Nowadays, they often stay as a digital file saved in our computers and phones. Making a photo canvas print is a modern way to bring your pictures to life so that you can share with friends and family… beyond your phone or Facebook!
