Here is My Awesome Printer. Couldn’t be done without it. Its a huge 24 inch banner printer. Means I can Print up to 21 Inch Width Canvas’ with room to wrap and any length I want. I actually use Canvas’ for my display printing huge borderless banners and then I grommet the corners and attach to a tension IDL display.

Here is what I’ve done lately. I actually have another on the table waiting to be framed. Several of these I keep for display and a couple are waiting for pick up.

Here’s what they look like off the printer.

Then I carefully take my measurements and get things rolling. Leaving a quarter inch overlap if I am doing a wooded exterior frame style. And a 1.5 to 1 inch if I’m doing a gallery wrap.

Then I cut my top board and build my frame from there. Everything gets a final sanding for a really clean product. From there I use this as a template to do the final trim of my canvas making sure that it is just right so there is no excess.

Next is the tricky part where I carefully adhere the canvas back to the frame. This is a bit tricky and can take some time but the results are undeniably worth it.

Next I router framing or I also do a clean black slim line framing which is very popular. Colors and staining options are endless. Which is nice if you want to match up your framing with your particular photo. I finish it up with a canvas or wire hanger.

Thanks for checking out what I do here. And hope to see you back soon.
