Stretched canvas

Superior canvas prints designed for trade and retail.

Each stretched canvas begins with a 12-colour giclée print produced from one of three individually curated substrates. We then make a custom wooden frame - in any size needed up to a maximum of 3 metres - and stretch the rolled canvas print over it.

The stretched canvas print is then hand finished by one of the UK’s most experienced canvas framing teams; ensuring each corner fold is perfectly smooth, tight and that all fixing staples are covered with special protective tape.

Canvas stretcher bars

European knotless pine canvas frames.

The thickness of your canvas stretcher bar determines how far the canvas print will stand off the wall.

You can choose from 19mm, 38mm or 44mm European knotless pine canvas frames (i.e. the internal stretcher bars around which the canvas is stretched).

Each canvas frame is milled with a curved profile; minimising contact with the face of the canvas; preventing unsightly impression marks and surface cracking.

We use finger-jointed canvas frames which create corner tension helping resist warping. For larger sizes, we add wooden 'wedges' to each corner; ensuring the canvas surface remains taut and allowing easy re-stretching in future years.

Canvas coatings

Preserve the integrity of your print.

All our canvas prints can be finished with a matt or gloss varnish coating.

Varnishes help to preserve the integrity of your canvas image, protecting against airborne dirt/dust, sun fade, abrasions and fingerprints.

To compare the differences between each finish we recommend ordering our sample pack.
