STRETCHER BARS: for Mounting Canvas Prints
If you're purchasing our canvas upgrade for A1+ and A2+ prints, you may want to consider getting stretcher bars. These let you create your own wooden frame for mounting the canvas in a professional style.
When mounting, you'll need some spare canvas to wrap around the stretcher bars. We'll therefore shrink the artwork slightly, to provide a 2" white border around the edges. When you buy stretcher bars we'll do this automatically - unless you tell us otherwise.
- A2+ size canvas will fit a 14 x 20" frame
- A1+ size canvas will fit a 20 x 30" frame
We'll be sure to supply the right size stretcher bars for your order. But please contact us if you have any questions.
Our stretcher bars are 38mm wide x 22mm thick. Easy to assemble by hand, they require no special tools or expertise, other than strong hands and a good stapler. The bars are made from kiln dried timber which is carefully selected to eliminate knots, and have a bevelled edge, meaning that the stretched canvas will not show an imprint of the bars. These bars are "dead straight" and not subject to warping, and will lie 100% flat against the wall.
