The Canvas Transfer Process
Producing a canvas transfer is an intensely detailed process, which begins with an art print (ink on paper). Special
chemicals are applied which, when dried, form a film that is meticulously separated from the paper and permanently
embedded onto a high quality artist canvas. The canvas is then carefully stretched and wrapped around a sturdy,
custom-cut inner support frame, called a "stretcher bar".
Ready to Hang "Museum Wrap"
Canvas is wrapped around the stretcher bars and stapled on the back. White canvas will show on the sides and no part
of the image is lost during this wrapping process. The stretcher bar on the back of the canvas has a saw-tooth hanger,
making it ready to hang on your wall. The canvas texture and non-reflective nature of a canvas transfer allows you to
hang them under any lighting conditions.
Differing from traditional paper art prints, a canvas transfer has a lifespan as long as any original painting or work of art.
They can easily be dusted and cleaned with a damp cloth, giving years of use and enjoyment.
Since there is no need to cover a canvas transfer with glass or to even mat these items, having your canvas transfer
framed is easy and cost effective. A good selection of wood mouldings are available for framing your canvas
