Is the quality of my Facebook or Instagram photo good enough for printing?

Most images saved to Facebook, Instagram and other social media sites are greatly compressed (up to 80%) in order to save space on the company’s server.

While you may be able to get a quality print for smaller canvas sizes, such as 8”x8” or 8"x10", it is unlikely that you will be able to get a quality print of a size larger than 8"x12". The quality of the print will also depend on what type of image is being printed. Landscape photos will print better from a low resolution than images with lots of detail, like a family portrait, would. 

We recommend you use the original photo from your camera (or smartphone) whenever possible to ensure you receive the highest-quality canvas print. We will contact you prior to printing if our artists have any concerns about the print quality of your image.
