We work extensively with Canvas art. If you would like to know if a canvas piece needs to be stretched, we would be happy to examine the type and condition and advise you on the framing. Not all works of art on canvas can, or should be stretched onto bars. For those that do, we start by building custom stretcher bars to fit your artwork, and then pull and staple the canvas to those bars for support.
A Gallery Wrap is a type of canvas stretch, in which the Giclée image or painting wraps around the sides of the stretcher bars to create a 3D effect. It is a popular style that many people enjoy as opposed to traditional framing. For a contemporary, and polished look, many people will combine a Gallery Wrap with a Float frame. These appealing open faced frames show off the edges of the art and appear to float effortlessly, with the frame’s edge offset from stretched canvas.
