General Order Information
This page showcases pretty much all additional bits and pieces that might be important to know prior ordering your prints.
Print Types - Canvas / Framed Canvas / Framed Prints
Photos framed behind glass or printed on glossy paper can look stunning when displayed in the right space, but in rooms with a lot of light, be it natural or artificial, the shiny finish can cause glare and reflections, getting in the way of the viewer seeing your photo the way it was intended. Canvas prints, on the other hand, have a satin-matte finish making them the perfect medium to display photos in brightly lit rooms.
Canvas prints are classic and timeless, making them a natural fit with all decor styles and winning them a spot as one of the most popular photo gift ideas. The versatility also means that they’ll look great in your home for years down the road as your home decorating tastes change.
Many Size Options
Canvas prints are available in so many different sizes, it makes it easy to get the exact look you want, whether that’s one single super-sized print or a gallery wall of several smaller prints.
Unframed vS Framed Canvas
An unframed canvas print is very modern and portrays artwork in a pure minimalist fashion. This method of presentation works especially well when the canvas art is very large and the stretcher bars are chunky. On the other hand a framed canvas print gives a more traditional feel or “completed” look. A well chosen frame can help to strengthen the visual appearance of the artwork within the room while providing an upscale decor element.
are like canvas prints and are very versatile. You can use a framed print for any picture and any type of photography. They are also a good long-term investment because once you have a high-quality fine art print you’ll have it for a very long time. The unique edge framed prints have is that they can be combined with a passepartout and some of the finest art papers.

For a truly exclusive representation of your brand, you’ll want to obtain a worldwide exclusive image usage license. With our Worldwide Exclusive Use Image License, your image is guaranteed to never be resold, and you’ll hold complete proprietary permission. This full-buyout option is best for brands interested in developing cutting-edge and iconic marketing campaigns.
A Non-Exclusive Image License allows you to purchase an image, but it does not grant proprietary permission to the image. Because you do not own the image (and do not have the rights to resell the image), a Non-Exclusive Image License will allow Martin to sell the same image to other brands for use in their own marketing or branding campaigns.
If you only want usage rights, this one’s for you. You won’t own these images, but a Royalty-Free Image License will allow you to pay a one-time fee in exchange for permission to use one of Martin’s images. You’ll still need to agree to a set of established terms (including copyright permissions), but this option will provide the most unlimited usage rights to Martin’s images.
