Stretching Canvas

Special gripper for stretching canvas

Canvas has always been "stretched over a frame" but have you considered why? Moreover, is this the best or only way to present a canvas print? Of course not!

Canvas can be 'block mounted'. Basically glued to a board just like posters and large photo prints are. It can also be hung on rails, like divider is, These alternatives can add value and apeal to your work. Not only that but if you don't have the back of your canvas print exposed to air, it is likely to last much longer too!

So here we'll show you some alternatives we've found customers like and explain the benefits of each type of presentation.


Block Mounting

Vacuum mounted photos

The only issue with stretching canvas over a frame is that moisture from the atmosphere can penetrate the fibre of the cotton. Canvas painting you often see having a cracked surface demonstrate that issue quite dramatically. The only way to prevent this happening is to seal the back as well as the front but unless you do this under a vacuum, moisture can be trapped in the canvas and cause mould to form. 24 hours after mounting seal the surface with liquid laminate and its done!


Presentation folders

Presentation folders can double as mattes when framing.

Presentation folders are an age old way to present a photograph. Available in black or white. The folder itself can do double duty as a 'matte if later you decide to frame the picture.
Mattes themselves are used to seperate pictures from glass when framing. If you decide to frame your photos, be sure to fix the photo to a backing board (use spray contact adheasive) and the matt can sit in front of the photograph to stop it coming in contact and sticking to the glass.
