Canvas Plus makes move to 1st Avenue

Canvas Plus is benefiting from more foot traffic downtown after relocating to a new space on the main drag earlier this month.

Canvas Plus is benefiting from more foot traffic downtown after relocating to a new space on the main drag earlier this month.

Owner Alan Bagshaw expanded his home-based business in Cedar to a retail location on Buller Street early last December, but the new location at 428 1st Avenue is a better fit.

“This location was about getting some traffic and taking advantage of the window space,” he said.

Canvas Plus specializes in large-scale prints for professional photographers as well as fine art reproduction work.

They can also resurrect older photographs, or even help some taken an image off their cellphone as a Christmas gift.

“There’s a good mix right now and we want to expand our base a little bit,” he said.

Bagshaw, whose background is in graphic design, first started out in industry back in 2004 when his sister was looking for someone who could make her acrylic paintings into prints.

The new location is 1,400 sq-ft, which is more than enough for Bagshaw and his two employees.

“It’s just a better location overall and fits our needs,” he said.
