How we make a
Custom Canvas Wrap
Our custom canvas wraps are made in a variety of sizes, and all frames are handmade from hardwood, to the specific dimension requested by the customer.
This video has Brent Thompson, Production Manager at Heritage Printing, Signs & Displays, demonstrating the process, he developed for all canvas wraps made at Heritage. Follow this step by step process and easily understand why canvas print lobby signs made at Heritage Printing, Signs & Displays are truly custom made.
- Brent makes the frame from Hampton Premium hardwood. First, he rips it to the correct diameter, then cuts angles in the corners for a perfect fit. Lastly, he glues and nails the frame pieces together.
- Custom sizes include, but are not limited to: 8” x 10”, 18” x 24”, 12” x 18”, 11” x 14”, 24” x 36”. We make extra-large wraps and the smaller versions on request.
- Once adhered and dried, the frame is sanded to remove all sharp edges, splinters and imperfections, this provides the best possible frame!
- Brent prints on HP Premium Satin Canvas. He uses our full-color, latex printer which can print canvas up to 60” wide.
- Once printed, the canvas is trimmed to remove all excess material and is ready to be applied to the frame.
- Brent staples one of the sides, and using his canvas tightening tool, snugs the fabric to the frame and attaches the opposite side, then he repeats the process with the remaining edges.
- Brent pleat the corners, providing a crisp, professional finish to the wraps.
Brent takes pride in every canvas print we make and shares that mentality with every project. His efforts, and those of his production team, make Heritage the custom sign shop for all your signage needs!
