Experimenting with Stick & Stretch

April 17, 2009

I wanted to create a collage with some texture and depth so I decided to mix and match the Stick and Stretch Pro sticks with the “regular” sticks. I printed 5 regular and 4 pro 10″ x 10″ finished canvases and bought some blocks from a craft store to space the frames out. (I wanted the wrapped edges to show) The whole thing is connected with L-brackets and some 1/2″ wood down the middle and on the sides (to give it strength).

I call this “New York Minutes”.

Stick and Stretch is an innovative Canadian product which allows you to “Gallery Wrap” your Canvas or other laminated images quickly and cleanly.  No special tools are required and with a bit of practice you can produce a professional quality wrap in less than five minutes!

Gallery wraps are photos printed onto canvas and then mounted on a frame with the image wrapped around the edge of the frame.  The look is very modern and is becoming extremely popular. Gallery wraps can be mounted unframed or they can be framed as a traditional art print.

Gallery wraps have previously been restrictive because stretching required very specialized skills and tools to do a proper job so customers would have to source out custom framers.

With the new gallery wrap system you can print on the canvas and stretch the canvas on to the stretcher bars in about 5 minutes – in house!  There are no special tools – you just need the mounting brackets and an Exacto knife.  The wrapping system is so easy to use that anyone can produce beautiful professional gallery wraps after only 10 minutes of training.
