Speedy Canvas Wraps Are on a Roll with GOframe

You can stretch professional-level canvas wraps faster than all get out with the GOframe PRO system, available at LexJet. In the video above, we take you step-by-step through the process, which takes just minutes, unlike traditional canvas wrap procedures.

You’ll need:

  • GOframe Starter Kit: Includes 4 Reusable Corner Clamps, Archival Glue and an Edge Trimmer
  • Stretcher Bars: Shown here are 16” x 20” GOframe PRO stretcher bars that come with tensioners and U-shaped fasteners for the corners
  • Hammer, utility knife and straight edge

When you prepare your print, add a 2.5-inch bleed on all sides before printing. We recommend printing on LexJet Sunset Reserve Matte Canvas or LexJet Sunset Reserve Gloss Canvas for great canvas wrap results. Be sure to install GOframe on a smooth surface when the canvas is print-side down to avoid scratches.

The GOframe Starter Kit and Stretcher Bars are prepped to help you wrap canvases in no time. The reusable corner clamps make positioning accurate, and the bars are finished with adhesive on two sides for easy installation. The kit also comes with a bottle of archival glue for extra adhesion.

Follow the step-by-step instructions in the video to learn how to align your print, finish the corners and place U-shaped fasteners and tensioners to create a gallery-worthy wrap.

Introducing: LexJet Sunset Production Satin Canvas SUV

For photography and fine art reproduction shops, LexJet Sunset Production Satin Canvas SUV is the all-new solution for high-volume production that demands consistent results for the creative digital market.

The new canvas is a U.S.-made 100 percent polyester canvas with the look and feel of a traditional, 2-over-1 poly-cotton weave, but heavier than a typical polyester canvas. Compatible with solvent, eco-solvent, latex and UV-curable printers, this versatile canvas is a cost-effective alternative that doesn’t require a coating for a satin finish.

Los Angeles-based Maxwell Dickson, which specializes in digital canvas décor art, tested the new product and has since put in an order to bring it on as a go-to canvas. “We’re going to use it — that’s the best endorsement I can give anyone,” says Kashif Shaheed, manager at Maxwell Dickson.

“We prefer for our canvas to have a cloth feel to it, so it looks like authentic canvas – not too plastic,” he says. “People confuse it with vinyl if it looks too manufactured.”

Because Maxwell Dickson prints more than 100 prints per month that range in a variety of sizes from 16-by-20 inches to 40-by-60 inches, the fact that this new canvas comes in 150-foot rolls is a bonus.

“We use at least 12 rolls of the 75-foot rolls each month,” he says. “We’d prefer not to change out the rolls as often, so that’s really one of the biggest selling points for us.”

Getting a Consistent Look from Paper to Canvas

Professional photographers know the importance of creating a signature look with their photography and editing skills, but another way to create a look that clients remember is through the choice of paper and canvas used for the finished piece.

Portrait photographer Tom Milne, based in Fresno, Calif., started with LexJet Sunset Photo eSatin Paper 300g several years ago, thanks to its excellent reproduction, durability and weight, and ability to handle a good, dynamic range of colors. The eSatin is an ideal choice for single prints and framed portraits.

Faster, Easier Canvas Wraps with GOframe

Yes, you can create professionally finished canvas wraps with ease in just minutes. Thanks to the patented design from GOframe, available at LexJet, finishing canvas prints with stretcher bars couldn’t be faster or easier.

In the video above, we walk you through how the GOframe system works, using the Starter Kit and stretcher bars that vary in lengths from 8 to 20 inches.

The Starter Kit comes with reusable corner clamps, archival glue and a special trimmer. Each stretcher bar pack includes the bars, strainers and corner pins. You can also purchase Centrebraces to provide additional stability for larger wrap pieces. The only other thing you need is a hammer.
