The best sort of frame to use for canvas prints and other types of canvas printing would be professionally made stretcher bar frames. The reason behind why stretcher bar frames are the best type of wooden frame to use is they are not only provisionally cut but they are also perfectly sized to whatever the customer or canvas print needs to be. Stretcher bar frames have a bevelled edge on them which makes them perfect for stretching canvas over because the canvas material needs room to breathe so that it doesn’t come loose over time as it needs to stay tight to keep its stretch. If there was no bevelled edge then after a couple of weeks from receiving your canvas photo print you will end up with a saggy canvas. |
Stretcher bar frames are ideal if you are a supplier of canvas prints or if you sell your own artwork because you by them in box’s of either 30 or 50 quantity in various sizes and they come un made up so if you have a box of 12” and 16” and 17” you can make up so many different frames with that. You can have a 12” x 16” frame or a 16” x 17” size frame or a 12” x 17” frame or if you wanted to make a square canvas print then you can have either of the sizes squared so they are very handy to purchase already broken down and also they are so easy to put together to. Stretcher bar frames simply click together so there no need for gluing them or nailing them together which is a very useful thing to know about these types of frames to.
A couple of other things to know about stretcher bar frames is that they don’t only come in different lengths but you can also get stretcher bar frames that are thinner and a lot deeper to as you can get frames that are 18mm deep or 38mm deep and you can even get frames that are 50mm deep for the really cool museum style canvas photo prints you see in very posh events so that really handy to know if you are looking at going to an exhibition and you want to make a really big impression on potential customers. Have your artwork printed on to the deep style canvas printing stretcher bar and turn a few heads, although even having your artwork or photos printed onto the thinner style stretcher bar frame looks really good. Especially if you have the image wrapped around the frame giving it a 3 dimensional look. This look is something that is becoming really popular.
