Mirror photo on frame sides
Often, when taking a photo, the interesting parts of the image are placed quite close to the edge of the photo. If we were to wrap you photo over the edges of the canvas frame, then parts of your photo would be lost over the sides of the frame. This is especially true with panoramic photography although it can be the case with many photos. Consequently, we offer a Mirror Option. With this choice, we simple mirror your photo over the sides of the frame. This effect is not noticeable when the canvas is framed and hung, and allows your entire image to be on the front of the frame.
Photo wrapped over frame sides
This style of framing works if your image has areas around the edge which are not the main centre of attention, or features on the side of the image which can be partially lost. Your photo will be printed on the entire canvas, then placed on the front of the frame and wrapped over the edges. This causes the photo to continue over the sides of the frame, giving a continuous blend.
Plain canvas on frame sides
For a simpler look, when the main elements of a composition are close to the edge of the photo, the sides of the frame can be left as plain canvas. To achieve this result, the photo is printed only on the front area of the canvas. The print is then placed over the frame with the entire photo on the front and sides left as plain white canvas.
About our framing
All of our canvas prints are hand framed using deep gallery box (38mm depth) pinewood frames which have been environmentally ethically produced from European suppliers, using quality wood from managed woodland. The canvas is carefully stretched and stapled. The high structural integrity of our wooden bars means that cross bars are not required, even on our largest sizes. Wedges are then placed into the corners of the inside frame. Should the natural cotton of the canvas stretch over time, these can be adjusted to re-tension the canvas artwork. Your canvas prints will arrive ready to hang, complete with hook attachment on the centre back of the frame.
