Stretching your canvas – ready to hang on the wall


Giclée London offer to print and then finish your canvas by stretching it ready to hang on your wall.

Finished and ready to hand straight over to your gallery or end client.

We use top quality giclée canvas varnish and Premium Hardwood Museum Quality Stretcher Bars –  made from high quality Tulipwood (American Yellow Poplar).

Very stable, low moisture and emission content. Unlikely to split or warp.

This is a very stable and low emission timber, it has less knots and a lower moisture content than standard softwood, and is very stable with a very low possibility of warping. Suitable for large scale, or high value canvas stretching work.

If you want to know more about where the wood for our frames comes from, then read on!

The tulip tree is one of the largest of the native trees of the eastern United States, known to reach the height of 190 feet (58 m), with a trunk 10 feet (3 m) in diameter; its ordinary height is 70 feet (21 m) to 100 feet (30 m).

It prefers deep, rich, and rather moist soil; it is common, though not abundant, nor is it solitary. Its roots are fleshy. Growth is fairly rapid, and the typical form of its head is conical.

The bark is brown, and furrowed. The branchlets are smooth, and lustrous, initially reddish, maturing to dark gray, and finally brown. Aromatic and bitter.

The wood is light yellow to brown, and the sapwood creamy white; light, soft, brittle, close, straight-grained. Sp. gr., 0.4230; weight of cu. ft., 26.36 lbs.
