Friendship of Salem - Tall Ship Canvas Print
The subject of this tall ship canvas print is the Friendship of Salem in harbor at Derby Wharf in Salem, Massachusetts near Boston. This 171-foot replica was built in 2000 is based on a 1797 East Indiaman. It spends much of the year in Salem but does go on special sailings periodically. If you've ever seen it, you know this tall ship certainly has the feel of 18th century sailing ship.
I had never heard of the Friendship of Salem before spending a day out of Boston roaming the historic streets of Salem. Getting to see such a storied place alone was worth the time spent there but the old architecture and finding this replica tall ship made it an extra special trip. This print has long been one of my most popular ones from New England. I'm sure in part that's because of how much people love these old tall ships, but I think it's also the quality of the light on that winter day and the composition that includes Derby Wharf, the old Customs House and the city of Salem in general. There's a real sense of location in this Salem canvas print, don't you agree?

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.
