The Clock Tower - St Albans Canvas Print
This St Albans canvas print features The Clock Tower at the historic city center. This medieval clock was completed circa 1405 and is said to be the oldest surviving medieval belfry in England. Our guide in St Albans years ago said that the clock tower was the result of a power struggle with the old Abbey. The Abbey clock and bells can be seen and heard from the same location so there was no obvious reason for a clock tower where it was built. But the citizens of St Albans were asserting their authority over time keeping.
Regardless of motivation The Clock Tower is a picturesque sight and gives the center of St Albans a truly old world flavor. This is canvas art print is made more special by having been there but just the same it has a truly classic feeling of a quaint English village that has appealed to many who have never stepped foot in this city not far from London.

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.
