How to Frame a Canvas Print and Easy Canvas Review
Our canvas turned out so much more beautiful than I ever expected it to. That is not a negative, but a positive! I am very pleased with the way the portrait has turned out, and I cannot wait to have our friends and family over to see it. Everything about working with Easy Canvas Prints has been just that, easy. But what’s a print without a frame? I had to start looking for a frame, and I chose the one in the above photo after tons of searches!
Here are the supplies needed to place your canvas in a frame:
- offsetting hooks
- double sided tape
- paper (dust cover)
- mirror hooks
- twistable cable wire
- wire cutter
Open your package of offset hooks and place them about six inches apart on every side.
Once you have those placed, go ahead and attach them using our drill.
Add your double sided tape to the frame around the edge of the canvas, covering all sides.
Place your paper over the back of the canvas, making sure to seal it down well. Cut off any extra paper.
Make sure you cut a hole into the back of the paper CAREFULLY, don’t cut your canvas! This is to allow the canvas to breath and will allow for temperature and humidity changes, keeping the canvas safe from warping.
Grab our mirror hooks, wire cutters, and wire for the next steps! Place the mirror hooks about a third of the way down from the top of your picture, attach with your drill and the screws provided. (Sorry, this goes so fast I forgot to take a picture of this step, but it’s easy!)
Attach your wire and cut off any excess that you did not need after wrapping it. Make sure you have about 3 to 4 inches from the top, see picture below.
You are all set and ready to hang your new framed canvas print! Here’s a pinnable image below for you to save and come back to later once you have received your canvas!
Working with Easy Canvas Prints was a pleasure and wonderful experience. I cannot stress how easy it was to navigate, customize, and order our canvas. If you are looking to have a picture made into a canvas, I 110% recommend Easy Canvas Prints. (Then come back and make your frame!)
