Custom House Clock Tower - Boston Canvas Print
This Boston canvas print features the Custom House clock tower. In the heart of Boston's financial district, this local landmark was built in two stages. The actual custom house building at its base was built between 1837 and 1847. Decades passed before the Clock Tower was added in 1913-1915. Today the beautiful old tower houses a Marriott Hotel. At 496 feet the top of the historic tower is among the 20 tallest buildings in Boston. Not bad for a tower that's over a century old!
At the time I took the photo this clock tower canvas print is based on, I didn't know any of the history of that grand building, I just knew that I loved the architecture of it and the great light that was hitting it that summer afternoon in Boston. I loved later finding out that I had spotted part of old Boston!

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.
