Little Italy Sign - Boston North End Canvas Print
This Boston North End canvas print features a Little Italy sign with various Italian place names on it. I spotted this cool sign on a trip to Boston years ago. A friend had suggested I would enjoy the sights in the North End and this sign caught my eye not just because of the novelty of it but I had been to Italy in the recent past then. The North End of Boston has been home to waves of immigrants in the history of Boston. A century ago it might have been families of Irish immigrants but it's become known as Little Italy due to the waves of Italian immigrants who have since called it home. And truly as I watched a feast day parade come up the street while savoring a gelato, it was very much a taste of my Italian experience yet in Boston.
This has been one of my personal favorite canvas prints because it reminds me both of visiting Boston and Italy in one scene.

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.
