Tips for Stretching a Loose Canvas Print

Framing unstretched canvas prints requires some additional steps compared to stretched canvas prints. Consider leaving an extra margin to account for the wrapping around the frame. Measure and outline the desired display area, then cut and assemble the frame using angled lumber pieces. Carefully stretch the canvas material over the frame, ensuring it remains taut but not excessively stretched. Adhere the canvas to the frame using staples, folding the corners for a neat finish. With these tips, you can frame your unstretched canvas print and give it the support it needs to showcase its beauty.
