The Gallery Wrap!

A few months back i decided to buy a roll of canvas to see what it would be like to print on using my large format Epson.  After a little trial and error i've gotten the hang of printing on this new medium.

The beauty of canvas is that the image takes on a different feel due to the texture of the medium instead of smooth paper while retaining good detail.  The image below shows fine detail from a canvas print.

But the question has been "what is the best way to finish the piece for hanging?"

How about a gallery wrap?  Clean, minimalist, yet quite striking without a frame.  It seems to float on a wall!

First the canvas is stretched over a wooden frame that can vary in thickness.  Personally, i like a thicker piece of wood for the following reason....

....there is print on each side, including top and bottom of the piece that imparts a 3D feel to a 2D print!  Even from extreme angles there is detail to catch the viewers eye.

Not only is the finished piece tidy with clean folded 'hospital' corners but is protected from the elements, including UV damage via a special finish.  This finish allows the piece to be wiped with a damp cloth if cleaning is necessary!
