Description

Professional canvas wrapped prints for your medium to large print and fulfillment shop have never been faster or easier than with the GOframe 1500 Gallery Wraps. These unique canvas wrapping kits allow you to make premium finished graphic prints in only about 10 minutes, without any specialized, large, or expensive machinery.

GOframe 1500 canvas wrappers are available in many sizes from 8 inches to 36 inches long. All of them offer a 1-1/2 inch depth so they stand out from the wall. Buy a single size to create a square print, or pair multiple sizes together to make different dimensions. These canvas wraps are packaged with 16 bars per box, which means you can make a total of four frames with one box. Included with the bars themselves are the tension tabs for the corners, which help create the drum-like feel of the canvas, as well as the fasteners to help keep the canvas in-place.

 

How to Make GOframe 1500 Gallery Wraps:

  1. Prepare your workspace. Make sure your table is clean and free of dust and wear photo gloves. Make sure you have everything you need, including 4 bars, 4 corner clamps, glue, staples/fasteners, a handheld trimmer, and your print. Your print should be at least 2" larger than your frame on each side (left, right, top, and bottom). For example, if you're making an 8" x 8" frame, your print should be at least 12" x 12" to allow for proper wrapping.
  2. Peel off the liners from the bars.
  3. With the adhesive facing up, attach the bars to the corners, creating your frame.
  4. Place your print face down on your work surface, and center your frame over the print with the adhesive facing down. Once centered to your liking, press the frame down so the adhesive sticks to your print.
  5. While holding the bars down, remove the corner holders.
  6. Using your trimmer, create a 45° angle cut on all 4 corners (not flush to the bars), and then trim your print edges flush to the bars.
  7. Create a perpendicular cut to each of the corners (from the center, out), and fold the cut pieces over the bar.
  8. Beginning about 1" in from the corners, apply a line of glue along each edge of your print beside the bars.
  9. Two sides at a time, fold the bars up so the corners touch and secure them in place with fasteners.
  10. Snap-in the supports to each corner.

Tips for making a perfect Wrapped Canvas using IG Wrap Stretcher Bars:

  • Start with a clean working surface to protect your canvas from scratches caused by grit and dirt.
  • If you are mounting on canvas, make sure to press the bars firmly down and apply a thin bead of glue before folding up the edges. The glue works in conjunction with the adhesive tape to make a permanent stretching.
  • To ensure proper adhesion across the entire bar, we recommend that after you have closed the frame you apply pressure along the outside edge by pressing firmly with your hand where the tape makes contact with the material. Please note that it can take up to 24 hours for the tape to achieve maximum adhesion.
  • We recommend that liquid laminate be applied prior to mounting. If you wish to apply liquid laminate after mounting you must wait for 2 to 3 hours for the glue to set. We recommend ClearShield Type C Liquid Laminate.
  • If you forget to glue you can remove the closing pins, open the frame, and apply the glue.
