Professional Presentation for Art on Canvas
Framing art on canvas can be as easy as just adding wire to the back of the stretcher bar and hanging it on the wall.
A more traditional way of framing a canvas is to put a linen liner around the canvas then cap it with a decorative frame.
Then there is the float frame. The frame profile is in an “L” shape, the canvas rests on the base of the frame or the “L” and the canvas is screwed into the frame from the back. Float frames come in various depths, which means that a 2″deep gallery canvas would fit this profile style.

When framing a canvas, remember that the subject matter and the era (modern or historical) of the art will help direct you to a contemporary or traditional frame. Custom picture framing is all about you, choose a frame that you like and suits your life style.
