4 New Canvas Backing Options
By James M. Theopistos


We have updated the finishing options for the back of the canvas prints which are available. No longer are we offering the Tyvek backings. Instead all canvas prints by default will receive a white or black acid free mat board backing. You can also choose to upgrade the hanging hardware to a wire hanger versus the default d-ring hanger. One of the first questions I received when we did this was why is it so important to be concerned with what the back of the canvas looks like when so many other companies that offer canvas prints don't seem to give it much attention. Plus who looks at the back of the canvas print? Those are valid questions and my answer is that even the smallest details cannot be overlooked when quality is important. Yes, most people probably don't give the backings of a canvas print much attention but since so many of our customers place orders to be sent to their own customers we recognize that craftsmanship of the stretched canvas prints is a direct reflection on them just as much as ourselves.
 

White or Black Archival Backing

Add On Cost: $0.00

Your canvas will receive an acid-free backing made of light weight white matting board. If you do not select a backing option, prints containing lighter tones will receive a white backing board. Darker toned prints will receive a black backing board. By having a backing board on the back of the canvas, dust is unable to accumulate over time therefore potentially preserving the lifespan. A d-ring hanger is included at no charge.

White or Black Archival Backing with a Wire Hanger

Add On Cost: $7.00

A wire hanger is installed on the back approximately 2/3 of the way up from the bottom of the canvas. A picture hanger wall hook is included which allows you to easily hang your canvas on most dry walls. Two may be included for very large canvas prints.

Professional Taped Backing

Add On Cost: $6.00

For a truly refined and professional look, a canvas-like matte tape is carefully applied to the back, hiding the staples. Because no backing is applied your canvas has the ability to breathe making it resistant to accumulating mold and mildew. This option is ideal in situations in which you might be placing the canvas print on an easel or made available where the back can be viewed. A d-ring hanger is installed on the back so it can be easily hung on a wall.
