Canvas print mirror borders, also called mirrored edges, wrap the parts of the image closest to the edge over the sides of the canvas in a mirror image. This is a bit different from a photo wrapped canvas, where the image simply continues over the side. A mirror border literally mirrors what is on the front edge. Mirror borders are a great solution to images that might not work as well with an image wrap, and allow you to capture a gallery-ready, artistic look for your canvas.
One word that’s commonly used to describe mirror borders is "flow," because the image appears continuous while repeating the edge elements. Because of this, mirrored edge canvas prints work especially well for subjects like landscapes. Still life photography is another great candidate for mirror borders. Other times when mirror borders might be the perfect fit:
