Our MYO Products (Make Your Own)
We pride ourselves in producing a truly artistic quality canvas without compromising in archival standards. All our canvases are printed using the latest in giclee printing techniques utilizing the Epson 9900 and 11880 large formate printers and are printed on museum grade archival canvas. Once printed your canvas is then coated with our signature matte coating preserving and protecting your artwork for generations to come.
Our default edge finishing is what is known as a mirror wrap, basically a portion of the edge of your photograph is copied and mirrored so that it covers the edge of the stretcher. This means that none of your composition is lost on the edge of the stretcher. We can easily accomadate solid colour edges such as black or white by special request.
To finish your canvas you can choose from either our regular sized gallery wrap canvas which is stretched on a 1 1/2" thick stretcher or from our low profile canvas gallery wrap where your artwork is stretched onto a 3/4" thick stretcher. All our stretched canvases come ready to hang.

Facemount To Acrylic
Our facemount to acrylic process is like nothing else being offered on the market today. Not only will our facemount process bring out the best in your photographs by enhancing vibrant colours, accentuating clear crisp details, and adding a three dimensional look second to none, your images will also get noticed with our unique contemporary presentation.
Each image is printed using a genuine high gloss photo paper designed specifically for the facemount process. Your photograph is then mounted between framing grade acrylic and a black PVC or Diabond backing where a recessed hanging frame is applied literally giving the impression that your artwork is floating off the wall. All our facemounts are 100 archival and guaranteed to last a lifetime without fading or changing in colour. If you demand the best from your photography then you owe it to yourself to give our Facemount printing process a try.
How they are made:
|Your print is carefully cleaned to remove all dust and the double sided Facemount adhesive is applied.||Next, your coated print is then mounted to the framing grade acrylic.||Once mounted to the acrylic sheet your print is then ready to have the backing applied.|
|The protective backing is applied.||Our signature float frame is mounted to the back. This gives your acrylic the impression it is "floating" off the wall.||Your finished acrylic. Enjoy!|
