HOW ARE CHAT ART CANVAS PRINTS MADE?
Canvases are printed on specialist canvas material using a 12-colour Gicle’e process. This material is then hand-stretched over a hand made wooden canvas frame (made from four separate parts called canvas stretcher bars).
The canvas corners are folded tightly over each edge by hand and then the material is fixed with staples to the canvas stretcher bar frame. Tape is then used to cover all staples, ensuring a smooth neat finish.
WHAT MATERIAL IS YOUR CANVAS FRAMES MADE FROM?
We use European knotless pine frames. This fram is extremly hard wearing and does not warp, unlike many cheaper alternatives.
Each canvas stretcher frame is milled with a curved profil and rounded edges. This shape helps to minimise contct with the front face of the canvas, preventing insightly impression marks and surface cracking.
We use finger-jointed canvas frames whihc create corner tension helping resist warping. For larger sizes we add wooden “wedges” to each corner; ensuring the canvas surface remainins taut and allowing easy re-stretching in the future years. We want all Chart Art canvases to look good for many years to come!
