Supply Starter Kit

This starter kit includes some of the required supplies to get started making GOframe 1500 PRO gallery wraps, such as the reusable positioning corners, a corner trimmer with blades, and fasteners.

Kit Includes:

  • Positioning Corners (4 Pack)
  • Corner Trimmer with Blades
  • Fasteners

Positioning Corners (4 Pack)

This 4-pack of corner positioning corners (also called corner clamps) is used to hold your frames in-place as you assemble them, ensuring perfectly spaced and sealed edges. They easily pop on-and-off your frames so you can reuse them over and over again. Opening in the corner makes it easy to center the stretcher assembly to the canvas if you are not wrapping the image around the sides.

 

Note: The color of these corners may vary.

Corner Trimmer with Blades

This corner trimmer was specifically designed for GOframe 1500 gallery wraps. It is small and compact, while comfortable to hold, and allows for precision trimming of the corner edges of your canvases to allow for a clean folded corner. Too much material on the corner makes them bulky and messy, so this corner trimmer is an essential tool for that professional finish. It includes the cutter itself as well as a pack of replacement blades.

Canvas Glue (4 Pack)

This specialty glue was manufactured specifically for GOframe canvas wraps. It is an archival-safe and pH neutral adhesive that won't degrade your canvas, even over time. The strong, permanent bind holds traditional canvas materials to the wooden frame with premier integrity.

4oz. Bottles

Fasteners

U-shaped fasteners are used on the corners of your GOframe 1500 to hold the pieces together.

Pro Joiner Bars (8 Pack)

Use the pro joiner to create custom sizes. Match the stretcher frame to the image and not the other way around. Create wraps larger than 60".

Center Braces (12 Pack)

Choose the size from 16" to 40"  to match your frame.

Cotton Gloves

Cotton gloves eliminate fingerprints without leaving lint. White cotton inspector’s gloves are made from smooth, lightweight, durable, and washable 100% cotton. Protect sensitive materials including film, photos, canvas, and more.

Interchangeable from left to right.

One size fits most.

Nylon Gloves

Polygenex™ nylon gloves are thinner than most cotton gloves so you have more dexterity. Some users prefer nylon over cotton when making and handling photo products.

How to Use GOframe 1500 PRO Canvas Wraps:

These unique canvas frame kits let you create gallery wrapped canvas on-demand in small or large runs quickly and easily. Simple assembly is required. Click here to watch the assembly video or follow these directions.

  1. Prepare your workspace. Make sure your table is clean and free of dust and wear photo gloves, if possible. 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.

To begin, gather all the components you need. Your print on canvas, GOframe 1500 Pro Bars in the correct length for your finished frame, a set of GOframe Pro Bar Corners, some corner pins and tensioning inserts, a cutting tool and a bottle of archival quality glue.

Start by removing the adhesive liner from the wide piece of tape on the front of the bar. Insert each bar into the GOframe 1500 Pro Bar Corners using the built-in notches and grooves to ensure each bar lays flat.

To assist in aligning your canvas frame, we recommend marking each corner point. This can be done by holding your canvas up to the light and placing a small pencil mark on each corner where the edge effect on your print meets the original image. These will be the corners of your finished canvas.

Position your canvas frame face down on the back of your print and place the holes on the Goframe 1500 pro corner clamps over the pencil marks.

Ensure that you are happy with the position of your frame, and then apply pressure to each of the bars to secure it to the back of your canvas.

Use the GOframe 1500 pro bar corners as a guide to cut diagonal lines across each corner of your frame. Then use the internal guide on the corners to make a small cut into each corner of your canvas; this will create the tabs needed for a clean corner finish on your stretch canvas. Remove the GOframe 1500 Pro Bar Corners and store them in a safe place for future use.

Next, remove the release liner from the narrow piece of tape on the top of each bar. Lift each edge of the canvas to wrap the bar. Apply pressure to secure it in-place. Trim off the excess canvas from the edge of your frame. Use the edge of the wooden bar as a guide to ensure you make a straight cut.

Fold up each corner tab and apply pressure to secure them to each bar. To create the edges of your finished canvas, lift the bars so that the corners meet and insert the corner fastener to hold the bars in-place; do this by using the ends of the fastener pins to find the holes in the wooden bar and then apply pressure to secure.

Finish your frame by using the tensioning inserts. Simply align each insert with the grooves on the back of each bar, then apply pressure to secure in-place.

To begin, gather all the components you need. Your print on canvas, GOframe 1500 Pro Bars in the correct length for your finished frame, a set of GOframe Pro Bar Corners, some corner pins and tensioning inserts, a cutting tool and a bottle of archival quality glue.

Start by removing the adhesive liner from the wide piece of tape on the front of the bar. Insert each bar into the GOframe 1500 Pro Bar Corners using the built-in notches and grooves to ensure each bar lays flat.

Place your print face down on your clean work surface. Then position your frame face down on top. The notches around the edge of the corner clamps can be used as a guide to ensure the frame is centered.

Once you are happy with the position of your frame, apply pressure to each of the bars to secure it to the back of your canvas.

Remove the GOframe 1500 Pro Bar Corners and store them in a safe place for future use.

Trim around the edges to remove the excess canvas using the wooden bars as a guide to ensure your cut is straight. Then trim diagonally across each corner. Cut into each corner at a 45-degree angle to create corner tabs. These will give a clear corner finish on your stretched canvas frame.

Gently lift each bar and apply a thin bead of glue down the length between the bar and the canvas. If too much glue is applied, simply wipe away the excess with a clean cloth before continuing.

Fold up each corner tab and apply pressure to secure them to each bar. To create the edges of your finished canvas, lift the bars so that the corners meet. Using the pre-drilled holes in each bar, insert the corner pins to hold the bars in-place.

Finish stretching your canvas with the tensioning inserts. Simply align each insert with the grooves on the back of each bar, then apply pressure to secure in-place.

Your frame is now finished. But if you desire a cleaner finish on the back, the narrower piece f tape on the top of each bar can be removed.

Frequent Asked Questions

Q
What are the pro joiner bars used for?
Asked by Sarah
A
The Pro Joiner Bars are used to create custom-sized frames that the standard bars won't allow for. For example, you can use the pro joiner bars to make panoramic sizes prints that have a short height, but an unusually long width.
