Before you can hang or custom frame a rolled up painting or canvas print, you need to have it stretched. This is where we come in, we stretch hundreds of canvases every year, both paintings and canvas prints.
Canvas Floater Frames
If yo are looking for a unique way to display your canvas, a floater frame may be exactly what you need. This type of frame is ideal for giving a polished look to any artwork mounted on stretcher bars, especially if the sides of your canvas are not painted or have exposed nails or staples.
What Are Canvas Floater Frames?
Unlike a traditional fine art frame, canvas floater frames will not cover any of the face of the canvas. Instead, the canvas sits neatly on the back of the inside lip of the frame, with a slight gap between the outer lip of the frame and the edge of the canvas. This gap serves two functions. First of all, it separates the art from the frame to prevent damage from contact with any acids in the frame, much the way a mat does in a traditional picture frame. Secondly, it creates an eye-catching “floating” look.
