We don’t stretch canvas prints….instead we mount them to a piece of board. We do this because we’ve found that it is more durable and requires lessmaintenance. Over time (and due to changes in temperature and humidity), stretched canvas prints loosen and in order to correct the lag, the canvas would need to be taken out of the frame and re-stretched by a framer. This comes at a cost to you and is generally not a very convenient task. Aside from the maintenance, a stretched canvas is more susceptible to damage. If someone or something were to push up against it, it could puncture or dimple/dent the canvas. We’ve found thatmountingthe prints (bothcanvasgiclees and textured paper) not only eliminates themaintenancerequired withcanvasprints, but it also drastically decreases damage. As a result the prints maintain their value over time.
