A canvas print’s flexibility to blend into almost any room is one of its characteristics that artists, art lovers and interior decorators like. However, if you are just new to this venture, then there are a lot you need to know. Foremost of this are the different types of canvas prints you can use to decorate a wall space. This post will help you get acquainted with these different types and get you all ready to choose the first canvas art for your collection!
Canvas prints are presented in different methods:
Gallery-wrapped Canvas Prints – The canvas is stretched all around the wooden stretcher bars and carefully stapled at the back. The picture printed onto the fabric is also stretched over the edges of the frame. This process allows the image to be continually seen at the sides of the artwork or a mirrored image where the edges are a reflection of the picture at the sides. The thickness is 1.15 inches that gives depth to the viewing experience. These prints are designed to be displayed without a frame.
Museum-wrapped Canvas Prints – These type of canvas prints have the same gallery wrapping method where the canvas is also stretched around the stretcher bars but instead of an extended image all throughout, it is limited at the center of the canvas. The sides or borders are painted with either white, black or any solid color. These can also be displayed without a frame.
The best quality canvas prints are tightly stretched and stapled securely at the back. The surface should have no bumps or ripples. The corners of the artwork should be smooth and folded properly with no extra fabric sticking out. The appearance of the printed photos depends on the type of fabric used; if it is printed on cotton, polyester or poly-cotton material. All these characteristics sum up to an amazing looking canvas print that effortlessly stands out on your wall.
