What is Canvas Framing
Canvas framing is the art of framing stretched canvases or canvas prints, elevating them into impactful displays. Popular among artists and photographers, this process enhances appearance, provides protection, and enables versatile display options in various settings, marrying aesthetic appeal with practicality.
At Altaphoto, we offer canvas printing and framing services. Our canvas framing preserves and showcases artwork, becoming a focal point in homes or galleries. Beyond protection from environmental factors, it enhances aesthetic appeal. Thoughtful choices in frame style, color, and details elevate the canvas's visual impact.
Key steps and considerations for canvas framing:
Stretching the Canvas:
Ensure a taut and wrinkle-free canvas by securing it over wooden stretcher bars.
Choose a frame that complements the artwork and fits the space, made from materials like wood, metal, or synthetics
Use "liner" or "spacer" options for a clean separation between canvas and frame.
Mounting the Canvas:
Secure the stretched canvas within the frame using clips, hardware, or specialized adhesives.
Optionally add glass or acrylic for protection, or leave it off to showcase canvas texture.
Consider UV-protective measures for canvases exposed to direct sunlight to prevent fading.
