Canvas Floater Frames

Canvas floater frames give the illusion the canvas you place in the frame is floating in the distinctive space within the frame.  These frames are usually used if you want to display a gallery wrap canvas since the edge of the painting or the canvas print does not get covered, and displays the entirety of the canvas leaving nothing to the imagination.

We will manufacture the opening size of your canvas floater frame to the size you enter plus a ⅛ inch allowance.  This will allow suitable movement and space the canvas away from the edge so it appears to float.

Canvas Stretcher Frames
Our Canvas Stretchers are manufactured to your specification in a sturdy one piece format, like a standard frame and come in regular (3/4 inch) and gallery (1-1/2 inch) sizes.  You should also note when ordering, if they are to fit an existing frame they must be a minimum of a quarter inch smaller to allow for canvas thickness and clearance for the existing frame.

When measuring your canvas it is important to not presume that it will be square. Measure each outer edge of the stretched canvas, i.e. top, bottom, left and right, and use the larger of the two measurements (if there is a difference) when calculating the size you enter into our website.

Standard Wrap - Canvas is stretched with the intention of framing it afterwards.  The canvas is stretched so the maximum amount of the printed/painted area is displayed across the front.  The edges of the canvas are usually unpainted or unprinted, and the canvas is stapled on the back of the frame. We would recommend ordering the stretcher frame a ¼ inch smaller than the printed/painted area of your canvas to allow for a small amount of bleed around the edges.

Gallery Wrap - Canvas is stretched so the printed/painted area is wrapped around the sides of the stretcher frame and the canvas is stapled around the back edge.  This is a popular and economical way to stretch modern artwork and photographic work as the Gallery Wrapped canvas is hung on the wall without the addition of an external frame. It is important to add 2 inches more of images on all sides of the image you are framing to allow for the canvas image to cover the sides of the stretcher frame assembly.

If you have never stretched a canvas picture before we would strongly recommend getting it done by a reputable local picture framer as it is a skilled job and any mistakes may be irreversible.

NOTE: Canvas Picture Frames are supplied as empty frames - No Glazing, MDF Backing or Flexible Tabs. Suitable for framing stretched oil paintings and canvas prints.

Picture Frames for Stretched Canvas Pictures
Virtually all stretched canvas pictures such as oil painting can be fitted into a normal picture frame and held in place using Canvas Offset Clips.  Our range of Canvas Picture Frames are from our normal custom frame range they can be front floating frames or back load frames. You should eliminated frames with small rebate depths and very thin profiles.  These frames are all supplied without any glazing, backing or flexible tabs and the prices have been lowered accordingly.  These frames will be supplied with hanging fixtures for the back of the frames and Canvas Offset Clips to hold the canvas in place.

It is perfectly normal for the depth of your canvas to protrude past the back of the frame.  The amount your stretched canvas extends out the back of the frame will be determined by the depth of your stretched canvas, and the rebate depth of the selected frame.
