Description

Easily stretch your print or gallery wrap canvas with the GOframe 1500 canvas stretcher frames. Available in a range of sizes from 8" to 36", the 1500 stretchers are made from the best grades of North American basswood, sourced from sawmills that practice sustainable forestry. With museum quality, low resin, and lignin content, the stretcher bars are stable and durable. The wood is kiln dried to a moisture content below 8% which will insure that there will be no warp or shrinkage after the canvas is applied to the stretching frame.

The GOframe 1500 canvas stretching kits offer professional results, without the price tag and expensive equipment. It sits about 1.5" from the wall, creating a focal point that adds texture and depth to a wall. It is the premier choice for both businesses looking to sell photographs, museums and art galleries, and even individuals for making gifts and home decor.

The GOframe is easy to assemble with the addition of the starter kit. The high quality adhesive tape eliminates the need for pliers. The patented corner clamps are reusable and ensure that the frames will be perfectly square and prevent the adhesive tape from touching the canvas during assembly. U-Shaped staples/fasteners help to create those neat and perfectly folded corners. The tabs snap easily into place providing constant tension that creates a drum-like feel to your canvas.

How to Use GOframe 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.

 

Please note: Canvas material and print are not included. These canvas wrap sets will work with most canvas materials, include even paper prints. We always recommend testing new materials before creating your print to be displayed. Most customers use between a 300 to 450 gsm canvas material and see beautiful results. Corner clamps may vary in color.

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 ball into the GOframe 1500 Pro Bar Corners using the built in notches and grooves to ensure each bar lays flat.

Place your print facedown on the work surface, then position your frame facedown on top. The notches around the edge of each GOframe 1500 Pro Bar Corner can be used as a guide to ensure the frame is straight. Once you are happy with the position of your frame, apply pressure to secure each bar to the back of the canvas. Remove the GOframe 1500 Pro Bar Corners and store them in a safe place for future use.

Trim around the edges to remade the access canvas, then trim diagonally across each corner. Cut into each corner at a 45 degree angle to create corner tabs. These will give a clean corner finish on your stretched canvas frame. Gently left 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 access with a clean cloth before continuing. Fold up each of the corner tabs and apply pressure to secure them to the end of 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 a corner pin 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 finish, but if you desire a cleaner finish on the back, the narrower piece of tape on the top of each bar can be removed.

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 print up to the light and placing a small pencil mark at 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 small holes in the GOframe 1500 Pro Bar Corners over the pencil marks. Ensure that you are happy with the position of your frame. Then apply pressure to each bar to secure it to the back of your canvas. Use the GOframe 1500 Pro Bar Corners as a guide to cut a diagonal line across each corner of your frame.

Then use the internal guide on the GOframe 1500 Pro Bar Corners to make a small cut into each corner of your canvas print. 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 by gently folding the print back down onto the work surface. Use the edge of the wooden bar as a guide to ensure you make a straight cut.

Fold up each of the corner tabs and apply pressure to secure them to the end of each bar. To create the edges of your finished canvas, lift the bars so that the corners meet. Insert the corner pin to hold the bars in place. Do this by using the ends of the pin to find the hole in the wooden bar and then apply pressure to pierce the canvas. 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.

Q
Are these good for a diamond art canvas? What size for a 32cm x 32 cm canvas?
Asked by Mickey
A
These stretcher kits can work with most standard canvases built for wrapping. There are so many brands/types, we cannot test them all; just be sure your canvas is 1.875" - 2" larger than the intended print on each side.
Answer by Binding101
Q
For the go frame 1500 kits are they square or rectangular?
Asked by Mike
A
They are available in sizes from 8" to 36" square. If you want rectangular, you would just buy one size for each of the dimensions you would like for your frame. They are also designed to allow for easy cutting, so you can even customize the print size you want.
Answer by Binding101
Q
What size print do I need to use for my stretcher frame?
Asked by Customer
A

When sizing your print, add an extra 3 ½" to each side of the finished print size. For example, a 12" x 18" finished frame would need a 15 ½" x 21 ½" print.

Answer by Binding101
Q
What kind of canvas do I need to use?
Asked by Customer
A

These kits will work with most canvas materials, however, we do recommend testing with a canvas that has not been used before. We typically see customers using 300 to 450gsm canvas with beautiful results. The wrap kits even work with paper, so there should be no issue with minimum canvas thickness.
