We’ve started to add a few canvas art prints to the site today as we feel that they might be a popular choice in conjunction with our wall stickers and wall decals. We’ve had the equipment for a long time to be able to produce canvas wall prints and as some of our clients have asked us if we can supply them we thought it would be a very good idea to add a few ranges to the website.
The majority of our products on our website are obviously wall stickers but imagine how good a wall sticker would look with a complimenting canvas art print artistically placed near or next to it. At the time of writing this post we have uploaded about a dozen designs onto the site and we aim to have a range of about 50 mixed designs from flower canvas prints right through to abstract canvas art prints and more.
We produce our canvas art prints to a very high specification, they’re available in two popular sizes, 18″ x 24″ or 24″ x 36″. Starting with the stretcher frame we only use kiln dried Fir wood for this. It has to be kiln dried as this prevents any warping which can be a problem in today’s modern centrally heated homes. Unlike some of our competitors who use the more common pine wood for their stretcher bars pine is more likely to mis-shape and warp if the room is too hot.
The canvas art print itself is produced from Eco-friendly solvent inks that are colour fast for up to 200 years indoors. Now we know this is a bold statement but viewing the finished canvas prints and testing them for ourselves leads us to believe this, our ink manufacturer will be able to back us up on this!
Stretching the canvas over the Fir wooden frame isn’t as easy as you may think. It took us a few attempts in the early days to be able to achieve results that we could actually pass on as a professional product, I can safely say that day was many moons ago! Anyway we properly stretch the canvas over the frame so it is drum skin tight and then we insert an industrial staple in to the area that requires it, thus fixing the printed canvas to the frame itself. It’s actually quite a therapeutic experience stretching a canvas as it reminds us all of Christmas as the sides and ends of the canvas all come together and fold in exactly like the process in wrapping a Christmas present!
After the printed canvas material has been stretched and secured to the frame we neatly trim away any excess material laving a tidy finish and we then hide and staples by using a canvas tape in the same colour as the canvas material. Doing this just tidies up the back of the canvas art print and again demonstrates a professional finish.
Don’t forget we sell the hanging kits for your canvas art print at only 99p!
So there you go! A little insight into how we produce our canvas art prints and aim to do so in a professional manner. We hope you enjoy our new canvas prints range and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
