• Standard Wrap: The printed image wraps around the canvas print's side stretcher bars, which are typically 0.75 inches deep, resulting in the printed image continuing on the sides of the print product. The result is that the printed image is viewable from all angles. The Standard Wrap option is great for most prints, especially for where the main focus of an image does not extend close to borders so to ensure that important components of the artwork do not get stretched onto the sides.
• Gallery Wrap: The printed art image wraps around the print's side stretcher bars, similar to the standard wrap. However, the gallery wrap canvas stretcher bars are thicker (usually 1.50 inches), resulting in an art gallery type effect with greater depth perspective. This option is great for most canvas prints, except where critical parts of the image run close to the borders because these important components could get stretched off on the top, bottom or sides of the print. With thicker stretcher bars, more of the image is stretched around to the sides than the standard wrap.
• Standard Black Sides: The overall size and depth is the same as the standard wrap, however, the image is not stretched on the sides. Instead, the entire printed portion of the image is on the front, while the sides are printed black. This option is great for framing the canvas print yourself (because the width of standard black sides is usually the standard size for frames) or if you prefer the sleek look of black on the sides.
• Gallery Black Sides: The overall print size and depth is the same as the gallery wrap. However, the image is not stretched around the sides, but rather the complete printed portion is visible on the front and the sides are printed black. This option is perfect for when the image would lose key aspects if wrapped, or when the black sides augment the canvas print, such as for black and white prints.
• Triptych: One large image is split into thirds and printed on three separate prints that are hung next to each other. This creates an outstanding effect by extending the length of a wall or hallway, and visually appears as if you are looking out a window at the image. Triptych is perfect for large rooms or hallways where you want to separate and extend a single image (such as a cityscape) to occupy more wall space but still maintain a sense of continuity among prints.
Mantles and Shelves are Great Ways to Display Art:
Canvas prints do not need to be hung above furniture or stand alone on a wall. Mantles and art shelves are also a great way to present art. Canvas prints can be set on the mantle or shelf-top and leaned against the wall (such as above a fireplace), set onto a shelf with other decorative objects, or hung on the wall over the shelf or mantle.
Arrangements Add a New Dimension to Decorating:
A common arrangement method is to align several prints next to each other to fill up space across a wall. Typically, these prints share a similar motif or design pattern for a consistent theme, but unlike triptychs, each print is unique. For example, one might line up three pictures of animals or five prints of flowers, or emphasize a similar color scheme among prints.
• Vertical Arrangements: Hanging canvas prints in a vertical line adds to a sense of height in a room
• Horizontal Arrangements: Hanging wall art in a horizontal line can give the illusion of width in a narrow room and tends to be calming
• Diagonal Arrangements: Diagonal arrangements, such as prints hanging diagonally down a stairway, add excitement to a composition
Decorate Using an Odd Number of Prints:
Choosing an odd number of prints helps to create a symmetrically appealing design with both central and peripheral focal points, but it is important that the artwork is balanced to fit the size of the wall and the room. In many instances, one large canvas print is big enough to enliven a room and cover a wall. However, if a single print is not large enough for a big wall, or if you enjoy the look of multiple prints on a wall, then choose 3 or 5 medium or small-sized prints to hang.
Viewing Pleasure is Maximized When Art is Hanging at an Optimal Height:
Canvas prints should be hung where the central point of the image or grouping is at eye-level for the average person, which is approximately 60-65 inches from the floor. However, there are other factors to consider when choosing height.
• Purpose of Room: If people will mainly be standing in a room, then hang your print around 65 inches from the floor. However, if people will mainly be sitting down in the room, such as an office or dining room, then hang the print a bit lower so that they can be enjoyed at a lower viewing angle.
• Print Orientation and Size: If you hang a tall vertical canvas print, position the print so that the top 1/3 area of the picture is at eye-level. Additionally, a large canvas print or grouping of small prints that are hung over a sofa should be placed so that the bottom of the print is approximately 12 inches above the top of the sofa.
• Children's Wall Art: Canvas print height should be lowered when decorating children's playrooms and bedrooms so that the image is hanging closer to eye-level of the children.
