Digital Prints on Canvas – Stretched – Framed

Artists! If you have that FABULOUS work of ART that everyone says I’d like to have that or How much is that one? You have the opportunity to make everyone happy by getting giclees made or reproductions made onto canvas, it looks like the real thing but is not. Printing companies can help you with this process, The Art Tree can help with stretching the canvas and the framing.

Once you have your canvas, consider stretching it onto a small stretch bar then framing it with a traditional frame with liner or a float frame. A unique idea when stretching canvas is to wrap it, meaning the canvas and image are wrapped around the sides of the stretcher bar creating a 3D effect.Canvas wrap

Another option is to frame it onto a deep 2″ stretcher bar and have it pop off the wall or sit on a table top like a sculpture.2 deep stretch bar for canvasThen the smallest of the stretcher bars is the easiest for framing, sometimes the depth of the stretcher bar effects how well the art fits into the printRemember to ask the printer to leave a margin for the framer to work with, it’s better to have more of a border than to crop to short. You may have to pay for the extra material but it is worth the great look in the end. I edge the canvas and stretcher bar with gaffers tape.


About artist and illustrator

I'm a textile artist, resourceful and excited about making things. Dog walks with my pooch "Charlie" is inspiring and an opportunity to develop ideas from nature and people whom we meet on our strolls. There is a story behind my art making, it's in the series, I don't make just one but many from the same idea, but! not one will look like the other, each piece of art is "one-of-a-kind".
