We stretch your painted canvas around a stretcher bar. We use regular or heavy duty stretcher bars depending on size. The sides of the canvas are stapled to the stretcher bar in order to be installed in a frame of your choice according to style and your budget. We also offer a gallery wrap for floated or frameless canvasses (certain size restrictions apply). With this method of stretching the canvas wraps around the sides of the stretcher bar and is secured to the back, therefore the staples are not visible on the sides.
