Canvas prints come in all shapes and sizes and are a great way to capture memories and decorate your favourite spaces. The right print in the right place can transform the look and feel of a room.

But what’s the best way to fix your canvas print to the wall? Surprising as it may seem, there are a number of methods – one of which will suit your particular situation.

1. Hook and Cord

You can put a hook in the wall and attach a cord to the back of the canvas. This is the traditional way to hang pictures. Eziprint can put a cord on the print for you, or you can do it yourself. To do it yourself: Buy 2 D-rings from a hardware store. Screw them in to the frame (on the back of the picture) 1/3 from the top of the picture. Tie your cord to the D-rings. Hang your picture on a picture hook. This is the best way to hang large prints.

2. Velcro Strips

Attaching canvas print to wallYou can use Velcro strips to hang the prints flat against the wall. If you get the right brand, these strips can be removable. This means there will be no marks on the wall when you remove the picture. The print sitting flat against the wall can suit many styles of wall display. This suits small or medium canvas prints.

3. Nails

For small or medium size prints, you can put one or two nails in the wall and hang the print directly on to the nails. Just make sure the part of the nail that sticks out of the wall is shorter than the depth of the frame, otherwise it will touch the canvas and may damage it.

4. Shelf

You can sit the canvas print on a shelf. This works better if the print is small.

5. Suspended

You can suspend the print by one or two cords. Attach the cord to the print using packaging tape on the back of the print.
