If you’re looking to spice up the appearance of the walls in your home, you may like the idea of adding a canvas display into the mix. These are a popular way of displaying art or photos, and with good reason.   

By using stretching canvas frames, you’ll provide a solid base for your print, which looks great when hung up. They come in a variety of dimensions, so they’ll fit perfectly on any wall. Whether it’s a bare living room or a home office, you can be sure it will add the final touch to your space.  

Here at the Picture Factory, we offer a wide range of solutions to fit the unique needs of your space. Founded in 1991, we have grown to provide a large variety of services. Despite this, we still function as a small, family-run business.  

What is a Stretch Canvas Frame?

The concept behind stretch canvas frames is relatively simple. Essentially, this means that the canvas has been wrapped around support bars, then stapled to the wood along the side or back edges.   

These wall-hangings can come pre-purchased, or you can buy a roll of material then take it to a print shop to have your image produced. The latter is usually preferable if you’re getting the product shipped to your location, as they can sometimes become damaged and loosened during transit if handled incorrectly.   

The Picture Factory believes in producing high-quality products. To us, this is of the utmost importance as we always strive to deliver the best products to our clients, no matter the circumstances.  

Made with Quality Materials  

Print companies often select timber for their stretcher bars as it’s lightweight, cost-effective and relatively affordable. While this is the most common option, it’s not the only choice available. Some bars are made of wood combined with an aluminium backing to provide extra support.   

Wooden borders can be susceptible to swelling in warmer temperatures and shrinking when it’s cold, which leads to the item loosening over time. With an aluminium backed frame, the print is less prone to adjusting to the climate and the supports are less likely to crack. If selecting a larger size, you’ll want to go for a solution that has a centre and crossbar through its backing.
