Canvas & Aviation


Pioneering aviators used cotton-covered (canvas) flying surfaces for their manned gliders and early powered flight designs. In fact, Neil Armstrong carried a small swatch of canvas from the wing of the famous 1903 Wright Flyer as he walked on the Moon. We owe a lot to this incredibly versatile fabric…canvas has enabled mankind to achieve the impossible. When searching for a perfect substrate to print our aviation and military art on, it was no surprise to us that canvas came through again!


Canvas is Durable
Canvas is best. Even the highest quality photo paper over time can be susceptible to moisture, settle and become warped behind glass. The durability of our canvas prints are great if you frequently move or have children, because there’s no glass to break. Our Canvas Wraps and Framed Canvas Posters are guaranteed not to warp in humid environments or direct sunlight. We make our selection simple, they all come in canvas: rolled, wrapped, or framed.

NOTE: Large 32×48 regularly $248.00 on sale for $199.00  Jet Black Wide 20×60 $199.00 and 36×12 $124.00.

Note: We are unable to ship the 60 x 20 size to standard International addresses and the 60×20 or 32 x 48 size to PO Box addresses. We CAN send these sizes to APO/FPO addresses. All APO / FPO and International orders can take 20-25 days to arrive.

Rolled Posters


Printed on the same genuine artist-grade canvas you’ve come to love. Rolled Canvas prints are the D.I.Y. method of making beautiful artwork. We highly recommend either canvas wraps or framed prints (below) as they don’t cost anymore to ship and arrive ready to hang.
Note: these are not cheap disposable “paper” posters made on copy machine paper. We use only the highest quality and durable artist’s grade canvas material that looks amazing and is more fitting for military and long term use.

Canvas Wraps



Your canvas will always look as tight and flat as the day it was made. Every frame is built with a solid face to support the canvas and keep it from deforming and loosening. Genuine Artist Canvas with durable 1-1/4″ depth construction. We use Custom Archival inks with UV Protection and shot by a hi-definition Eight-Color Commercial Printer. Our canvas wrap prints come with a mirror edge wrap. If this is not your style then we recommend our framed canvas standouts (below).

Framed Canvas Posters
pentagon-poster-framedfin1cornershotWith a frame thickness of 1-1/4″, our framed canvas standouts are designed to have the same depth as our Canvas Wraps. These durable canvas posters don’t require glass which means no glare, and nothing to shatter. The gloss poster finish can wipe clean with a damp cloth. All Framed Standouts come with beautiful finished backing and are ready to hang. (note: mount directly on built in clips)
“Midnight Raid” Satin Black Frames.
