  • North American basswood is sourced from sustainable forest sawmills
  • Archival-safe canvas wrapping glue won't damage the integrity of your print
  • Snap-On reusable corner clamps make it easy to assemble perfectly squared frames over and over
  • The premium adhesive on bars eliminates the need for stretching pliers; holds your bars in-place while you assemble your print and 
  • Packaged with 16 bars per box, which allows you to make 4 frames

 

GOframe 1500 standard stretcher frames make it simple, fast, and affordable to make DIY professional-quality wrapped canvas prints. These kids include bars of your chosen size as well as corner tensioners. Just pair them with the appropriate accessories and your own printed canvas. 

 

To make GOframe Standard canvas stretchers, you will need:

  • Stretcher bars in your chosen size; choose 1 size to make a square frame, or choose multiple sizes to make landscape, panoramic, or any other non-square print
  • Reusable corner clamps
  • Corner fasteners (included with bars)
  • Canvas glue
  • Corner trimmer
  • Your own printed canvas

 

How to Make GOframe 1500 Standard Canvas Stretchers:

First, we recommend you watch the video we have prepared to walk you through the step-by-step instructions. Or, if you prefer to read the instructions, follow these steps.

 

  1. Prepare your workspace. Make sure your table is clean and free of dust and wear photo gloves.
  2. Make sure you have everything you need, including 4 bars, 4 corner clamps, glue, staples/fasteners, a corner 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.
  3. 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 Bar Corners using the built-in notches and grooves to ensure each bar lays flat.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Remove the GOframe 1500 Bar Corners and store them in a safe place for future use.
  7. 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 to your stretched canvas frame.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Your frame is now finished.
