Getting a professional-level framed canvas with stretcher bars typically takes a lot of measuring and a bit of guesswork while you’re limited on pre-cut sizes. But with the new GOframe system, now available through LexJet, stretcher bars snap right in place, and a freshly framed canvas is ready in minutes.

GOframe is quicker and easier to install, compared to other brands, thanks to the reusable patented corner clamps that align the bars right into place, taking the guesswork out of placement and measuring. GOframe’s Starter Kit includes the reusable corner clamps, trimmer and extra glue and blades.

The stretcher bars, available in standard lengths from 8 to 60 inches, can be easily customized to odd sizes using the Starter Kit trimmer and are lined with a high-quality adhesive tape to keep them in place. Plus: GOframe stretcher bars are priced, on average, 30 percent lower than competitors’ framing systems.

“The GOframe is super easy to put together,” says Michael Clementi, who heads up LexJet’s Experience Center. “The corner clamps set up the layout for you so you get a professional finished product — it’s a perfect option for anyone looking to produce gallery-wrapped canvas.”

GOframe stretcher bars are available in a variety of lengths and two widths. The GOframe Stretcher Frame 1500 has a 1.5-inch bar depth by .5-inch bar width and is available in 16 packs. The GOframe Stretcher Frame 1500 Pro has a 1.5-inch bar depth by .875-inch bar width and comes in 8 packs.

AW Artworks – Gallery Wrapped Canvas start to finish from Andrew Wredberg on Vimeo.

Shot at AW Artworks Design Gallery and Studio in Sun Prairie, Wis., the video embedded above gives consumers interested in buying a canvas gallery wrap an inside look at its production.

Canvas Gallery Wrap Video AW Artworks“Every day I see an online deal for $5 canvas that’s supposedly a $120 value. I get questions from people who wonder why our canvas gallery wraps are so much more expensive,” explains Andy Wredberg, AW Artworks’ owner. “This is a video version of my answer, which is that I’m spending the time necessary to make sure their canvas wrap is absolutely perfect with color correction, setting up the image correctly, hand-cutting the frame with high-quality wood, printing with the best canvas material, and coating and wrapping it by hand. We won’t be the cheapest; our goal is to be the best.”

Wredberg printed this sample for the video with a Canon iPF8300 inkjet printer on Sunset Select Matte Canvas. Wredberg builds the stretcher frame from scratch and uses a Tensador II to complete the wrap.
