Give your gallery wrap canvas added movement and life with our stylish floating frames. Floating frames recreate the ambiance of an art gallery in any room of your home.
Our handmade canvas gallery prints are manufactured in-house and crafted using state-of-the-art technology. We source the wood for our frames from eco-friendly pine forests to ensure sustainability. We use choice, poly-cotton canvas, which means we can print a sharp image that will continue to look vibrant for years to come. Our state-of-the-art technology uses latex inks with UV protection which do not fade, bleed, or degenerate into dull tones. Lastly, all of our canvases have a solid backing to ensure they never sag and will last a lifetime.
Unlike other canvas print providers online, who offer machine-led canvas stretching, we believe that doing things the old-school way makes for a better product. We hand-stretch canvas across all our frames to give you the best quality display for your photos.
At By Design Studios, our stretcher bars are made from kiln-dried pine wood sourced from sustainable wood forests. It is a strong wood that can hold any size of canvas material firmly on it. The edges are rounded, perfect for the canvas to engulf the wooden frame in a pleasing way.
We use a poly-cotton canvas material for printing your photos on canvas because it is more textured than the standard paper used for photo printing. This material is particularly suited for art reproductions or as a way to make your photos look museum-quality.
Many companies claim to use 100% cotton canvas material, which we think is not the right material to last for a long time. Here’s why:
- Cotton is termed as a breathable material, which means it is prone to ripping and getting worn quickly. Durability is not cotton’s biggest strength, whereas polyester’s elastic traits make it more durable as a canvas material.
- Because 100% polyester can get sticky with any kind of perspiration brought on it, using just polyester canvas would make the photos look like they are printed on plastic.
- To get the best of both worlds, we combine polyester and cotton to make the canvas wrinkle-free, lightweight, and low-maintenance.
