Clerys Department Store - Historic Dublin Canvas Print
This historic Dublin canvas print features Clerys Department Store, once a Dublin landmark. Clerys Department Store opened in 1853. When I visited Dublin it was still open but it after more than a century in business it closed in 2015. This Dublin street scene is based on photos I took on one of my last mornings in Dublin. The sunshine was streaming down O'Connell Street picking out all the details on the historic architecture that Dublin's north side is well known for.
The landmark Clerys Department store building dates from 1922. The original was destroyed in the Easter Rising of 1916. The clock you can see over the main doors was long a meeting point. In the days before mobile phones and the like, people would arrange to meet under Clerys Clock. The building of course remains and is being redeveloped but the history of Clerys Department store has closed. I'm glad I had a chance to shop there even if I only got a pair of gloves. Ha!

Canvas Prints - Product Information
Stretched canvas prints are a great choice for decorating your home or office. Canvas art is a classic choice that is at home in traditional and modern decor alike.
After the purchase of your canvas print, it is made to your order. The artwork is printed on an acid-free poly/cotton blend canvas. The use of archival inks and substrate means that your canvas art print should last a lifetime without fading or loss of color.
When ordering your print, you have a choice between glossy and matte finishes. While I ordinarily love matte finishes on prints, I do like the sheen that comes on glossy canvas prints. Ultimately I would suggest letting the amount of light in your space guide your choice. In a brightly lit environment, I would lean towards a matte finish to reduce the chance of glare.
There are three wrap styles to choose from for canvas prints. The mirrored wrap choice mirrors and extends the image to the sides of the canvas wrap (without losing any of the original artwork on the front). The majority of the time I would suggest this is the best choice. The other two options are a solid black wrap or white wrap. You can see a preview of each option when selecting wrap color.
After printing, the canvas is stretched over and secured to a wooden frame of 1.5" by 1.5" stretcher bars. The entire production process takes from 10 to 15 business days. Your artwork will arrive in sturdy packaging. The hanging wire will be attached and all hardware necessary to hang your canvas print will be included. Canvas prints are a great ready-to-hang option.
