At Vancouver on Canvas, we are experts in creating one of a kind fine art canvas Giclees. We want to give our customers a full range of options when it comes to their giclee prints, so we not only print, we also stretch the canvases and finish them so they are ready to hang. We manufacture our stretcher frames on site, so we are able to customize the finished piece to any size that our customers desire. Since many of the equipment and expertise required to build stretcher frames are the same required to make decorative frames for the finished canvases, we wished to offer our customers the option of custom framing for their canvases and fine art giclees. We are pleased to announce that we have recently upgraded our shop in order to provide our customers with this additional service.
Vancouver on canvas, we are able to create custom frames from a large selection of decorative moldings. The complete selection can be seen either in our showroom or on our website. The frames are grouped into 5 categories, organized by the width of the molding, and are priced accordingly.
One of our most popular frame is our floater frame. Unlike more traditional molding, the floater frame does not have a lip that overlaps the front of the canvas. Instead, the frame is designed to leave a small space between the frame and the canvas, making the image appear to 'float' within the frame. This simple and elegant frame comes in white, black, gold, and espresso. It is especially suited for giclees, and our customers have been very pleased with it.
We can also create custom frames for works on paper, such as photographs, drawings, posters, or fine art prints. In this case we recommended protecting the work with plexiglass, and we offer the UV protective and non-glare as well as standard variety. We offer mat cutting to order, in a wide variety of colours and textures. In the case of fragile paper artwork, framing is a way to protect and display work at the same time. At Vancouver on Canvas, we can help you select the appropriate mat and frame to perfectly set off you image.
Many people purchase unstreched canvas from artists while travelling in foreign countries, as they are much easier to bring home. Bring your souvenirs to Vancouver on Canvas to have them professional prepared to decorate your walls. We can stretch and frame the canvas for you, even if we did not print it. Please see our pricing for custom canvas stretching.
One of the advantages of giclee canvases is that they do not need to be framed. They are finished pieces in themselves, and at Vancouver on canvas we offer a variety of edge selection options for those who would rather have their canvases without frames. However, for those who want an extra little something, we now offer custom framing as an option.
