Canvas Framing: Why Consider It

Canvasses are one of the trickiest things to handle for many, as people will create beautiful artwork and then wonder how to preserve it. Many artists don’t like to add frames because they feel it takes away from the piece. They use other preservation methods to keep the colours looking their best, but the recipient of the piece may decide to add a frame.

If you’ve recently gotten artwork as a gift or purchased it for yourself, canvas framing could be ideal for you. Whether you live in an area that is prone to high humidity or tend to smoke cigars or cigarettes in the house, a frame can protect your investment.

Canvas framing can do more than add a finishing touch to the piece, though that is what most people want. If your print is in a high-traffic area, such as right in front of the gallery, you may want to ensure that it is safe. Along with the frame itself, they will usually add brackets and hanging options so that you can keep it safe. However, you don’t have to frame the print before hanging it if that is not your preference. One of the trickiest parts is to ensure that the frame matches the print and doesn’t change the focus.

At Amarisco Framing & Mounting, they realise it can be a hard decision to frame prints and paintings. If you’re on the fence, you may be worried that the frame will detract from the overall feel or aesthetic. However, they have professional framers who can help you decide how best to frame the artwork. For example, they may recommend using some matting that will add a white border between the print and the frame. Canvas framing should be customised to the print itself, as well as the surroundings and your preferences.
