A Super Fast Way to Create Framed Canvas Art

Yes, you can get a modern finished canvas look in a snap without stretching and wrapping — if you’ve got the right canvas photo paper and a handy photo panel.

As shown in the video above, we’ve paired an image printed on LexJet Sunset Photo Canvas Paper 230g with our new LexJet Sunset Professional Photo Panels to create a quick and easy finished piece, ready to hang.

We chose Sunset Photo Canvas Paper because it’s ideal for photo, fine art and decor prints that you want to print on a canvas texture. Its instant-dry coating and lay-flat properties ensure smooth, consistent and reliable print production and finishing.

And our new Photo Panels are the perfect solution, with the front display side lined with adhesive for quick application of the canvas paper that takes only minutes. The pre-drilled holes in the back of the panels make them ready to hang, or use the built-in rear stand to display on a shelf. The 1-inch black trimmed edge provides a clean, modern look.

SPECIAL OFFER: For the month of June, buy a 10-pack of 11×14-inch LexJet Sunset Professional Photo Panels and get a 17-inch roll of Sunset Photo Canvas Paper for free! ($59 value) This offer is available to purchase online or by calling your LexJet representative at 800-453-9538.

Project Instructions:

  1. Print your image at a standard photo size, like 8×10 or 11×14
  2. Place the alignment tool in one corner to line up your image
  3. In the opposite corner, peel back and crease the liner a few inches to expose the adhesive on the panel
  4. Place the print image side up and use the roller to secure the back of the print to the exposed corner of adhesive
  5. Remove the alignment tool and flip the image away from the panel so you can remove the rest of the release liner
  6. Using the roller, apply even pressure to adhere the print
  7. Turn the image and panel face-down and use a sharp cutting tool to trim the excess canvas paper
