Specialists in canvas stretching, canvas printing.
Custom Frames are one of the few specialists who provide a canvas stretching service for non-standard and large format work. Our staff will expertly make the canvas stretcher specifically to your canvas to allow for any stretch of the material as each type of canvas/material has its own characteristics.
Images on canvas have proven extremely popular recently for home and work environments alike.
We use FSC certified quality seasoned kiln dried timber that is made up from many smaller sections they are then laminated and finger joined together, this not only produces extremely straight lengths for us to work but prevents the canvas stretcher frame from twisting once the canvas has been fitted.
The stretchers come in four depths 17, 30, 40, and 45 mm sections however if you have a special required depth we'll be able to produce it. Our experienced staff are on hand to advise you on the best type and depth for your canvas and requirements.
Our in house Dye-Sublimation canvases can have the application for exterior usage, terrace's, patio's etc we have developed a Cedar stretching frame with stainless steel and solid brass fixings for this purpose. The Cedar will stay stable through all weathers as most of our garden designers have found, We also produce a range of Acoustic Canvases ( for more info go to the "Acoustic Canvas" section in our SERVICES MENU)
For some types of ink jet canvases they are required to be bonded onto a solid board either for stability reasons or to avoid damage to the canvas if hung in public areas such as hotels, bars, nightclubs or restaurants. The canvas stretcher is made in the usual way in any of the four depths but finished with a solid 4mm face, once the canvas has been fitted this will appear to look like a normal stretched canvas.
