In an ideal world canvas printing companies would supply your with hanging kits with your canvas print for you to hang with ease rather than having to go out and purchase some canvas hooks for you print that you have just bought. Some canvas prints business do actually offer free kits with their product and offer an option to order more if needed so that’s something that is also very useful.
