Canvas Wrap Artwork

Allow 1.25" on all sides of your artwork. This area will not be visible from
the front of the print, but will wrap around the sides of the frame.


Follow these steps to ensure that your artwork will produce the best results.

1) What type of file format should I send?
We accept all industry standard formats for artwork including *.jpg, *.tif, *.pdf, *.eps, *.psd. If sending an Illustrator or Corel Draw file, be sure and convert your fonts to outlines.

How much margin do I need around the main subject area?
2) Make sure to allow for a minimum of 1.25" on sides (we need 2" on all sides for 20" x 30" frames) that will wrap around the outside of the frame.

  • If you are ordering an 11 x 14 canvas wrap, your artwork should be 13.5" x 16.5" at 72 dpi.

  • If you are ordering an 14 x 20 canvas wrap, your artwork should be 16.5" x 22.5" at 72 dpi.

  • If you are ordering an 16 x 20 canvas wrap, your artwork should be 18.5" x 22.5" at 72 dpi.

  • If you are ordering an 18 x 24 canvas wrap, your artwork should be 20.5" x 26.5" at 72 dpi.

  • If you are ordering an 20 x 30 canvas wrap, your artwork should be 24" x 34" at 72 dpi..

    What is the minimum dpi I should send?
    3) Make sure your artwork is at a minimum of 72 dpi at 100% of frame size. If you have a 4 x 6 photo at 300 dpi, we can image an 11 x 14 canvas wrap with good results.

    We will review your artwork before producing your canvas wrap. If we don't think your artwork will yield optimum results we will contact you before printing and wrapping.

    Here's a look at the back of a canvas wrap.

    We use a deeper profile, which provides a more 3 dimensional look, than you'll find on most canvas wraps. We hand varnish each print, hand trim, stretch and assemble each piece. We use quality wood in our frames and stretch bars for added strength and durability.
