On What Can I Display My Images?

These Box Frames are an exciting and stylish way to present your images. The frame gives a lovely 3D effect and your image looks as if it's "floating" within the frame.

Your selected image is printed and pressure bonded on to a durable mount board before being laminated (this allows the image to be wiped down with a damp cloth and protects from bumps and scratches) and then fitted into the box frame of your choice.

• Choice of 30mm and 50mm deep frames.

• Available in oak, driftwood, natural, silver, black and gold.

• Ideal for home or office environments.

• Choose from our 1000's of 2canvasart stock images.

• Allows your image to be the "star" while providing a modern finish to your art.

• With pricing starting from £22, why not give us a call to discuss your requirements and get a quote?

 

 

Canvas

Canvases are wrapped around and stretched over wooden frames made from different qualities and depths of wood. These frames are built using Stretcher Bars or 'Stretchers'. Whilst stretchers are not visible behind the stretched canvas, they are a very important component of your finished canvas, providing depth and strength to your canvas.

Stretchers also have an effect on the look of your canvas, as 38mm stretchers have less physical presence than 44mm or 50mm stretchers. The choice of stretcher depth, however, should always be a personal decision to achieve your desired look.

Larger canvases, above 40inches are more suited to deeper stretchers both for strength and aesthetics.

 

 

All of our frames are hand built from our range of stretchers; we never use MDF or board behind our canvases.

 

 

With canvas, you will have a choice as to how the edges of the canvas are finished. Your selected image can be sized so that it completely wraps around the sides or we can duplicate the edges and add them on to give the impression of a full wrap, without any loss of the main part of the image. We can also create a blur wrap and a colour wrap however; our staff will make a recommendation during the order process as some images are more suited to certain wrap options than others.

 

 

All our canvases come with corner tension wedges to allow re-stretching of canvases, which may occasionally loosen-off over time, depending on the hanging environment. The wedges allow canvases to be re-tensioned with just a tap of a hammer.

To finish off your canvas, we recommend a coat of acrylic varnish. The varnish protects and enhances your finished canvas and adds to the canvases longevity by increasing its UV resistance and allows the canvas to be wiped down with a damp cloth when dusting.

Acrylic Panels

 

Acrylic wall art is a relatively new method of framing your art and will suit any modern home interior design scheme. Acrylic pictures create a big impression on your walls and the acrylic panel helps to enhance the picture by providing a super glossy finish.

Modern, minimal and sleek with clean lines create a unique visual impact. The acrylic prints are robust and easy to clean, making them perfect for bars, restaurants, hotels and other public places, and especially your home walls

Your selected image is printed on the highest quality satin paper, which produces acrylic prints that are manufacturer guaranteed fade resistant for 70 years. Unlike images printed directly onto acrylic sheets, your image will not crack, chip or deteriorate in any way.

Your selected image is reverse bonded onto the back of either a 5mm or 10mm acrylic panel with diamond polished edges for a truly stunning finish. All fixings are supplied so your acrylic panel is ready to hang on your wall as soon as it arrives.

Our 5mm acrylic panel comes with 4 or 6 brushed aluminium stand-off’s, depending on the size of the panel, and includes hanging wires.

Our 10mm acrylic panels come with batons fixed to the back and metal hanging plates and are ready to hang.

Both types of hanging fixings give the effect of your acrylic panels floating on the wall, with a gap of approx 2cm between the wall and the panel, providing a contemporary and modern way of hanging your art.

All our acrylic art prints are made to order in our gallery workshop so we control the quality at every step of the production process.

 

 

MDF Block Mounts

Add extra depth and dimension to your photo or artwork by having it printed and mounted onto 12mm MDF block.

Your selected image is first printed onto satin finish photo paper and then sealed with a non reflective laminate film, which protects the print surface and adds UV protection to prevent fading; the laminate also allows the print to be wiped with a damp cloth when dusting.

 

 

The print is then bonded to a 12mm MDF block with the choice of white or black edges or it is also possible to match the edge colour with your wall colour, which gives the effect of the image being extruded from the wall - very interesting and unusual; all that's needed is the paint code and it can be reproduced.

• Photo paper with matte finish block mounted

• Mounted onto 12mm MDF blocks

• Edged in black or white for high quality finish

• Remains crisp and vibrant for over 70 years

• Pressure-sealed and laminated for ultimate protection

Framing Services

2canvas can offer a bespoke framing service or we keep a stock of off-the-shelf frames in our gallery. We can offer frames with single, double or triple mounts or without mounts, whichever suits your requirements.

 

 

Our bespoke framing service offers a range of frames all built to order at sizes to suit your prints and with pricing starting at just £40 for a 16×12" (A3) frame, the service is very affordable. There is a lead time with our bespoke service, up to a week however, the finished product is well worth the wait.

With regards to our off-the-shelf framing service, this was introduced as an accompaniment to our slip mount images to allow clients to match a frame with the mounted images they select and at a great price too!

We decided to stock these frames to allow clients the flexibility of having bespoke frames made or, for a more economical option, select from our off-the-shelf selection which has a smaller range of sizes and colours however; with our A4 frames starting at just £6 it does prove to be very economical indeed!.

 

 

Our off-the-shelf frames come in the following sizes:

A4 (12×8"), A3 (16×12"), A2 (24×16"), sizes are approximate and apertures will be less if a mount is fitted so images may have to be sized to fit.

 

Gift Vouchers

Gift vouchers make a wonderful gift! They provide a flexibility that allows the recipient to make the most out of your gift.

If you're not sure which of our many images a friend or loved one would like, let them pick it themselves and use a gift voucher to pay for it.
