I'm planning to get a couple of prints onto stretched canvas with the image wrapping the border. The source is a scan of a drawing with coloured pencils. The colours will be tweaked a bit with a basic photo editor.

Any recommendations and experiences with the available services and any technical hints will be gratefully received. In particular I will need to work out the border and size/crop the image appropriately.

Where are you located? Imagelab is what I would consider the top tier of printing services but places like Big Image Print can provide more than acceptable results here in Wellington.

I've used as an online canvas print service before. The owner/operator is very nice and you will get proofs to confirm the printed image exactly. It's free shipping and packaged well. Their site has a lot of technical information on their FAQ page if you want to read up more. I've only ever dealt with Jane but she was always happy to answer my questions.

The print border depends on the frame size which depends on the printer/mounter you use. Typically a canvas border is about 30mm deep but I think can be done up to 40mm or so.
