Tasmanian Oak Frames
Tasmanian Oak is a beautiful and popular light coloured Australian hardwood sourced from a group of eucalyptus species grown primarily in Tasmania. It can range in colour from straw blonde neutrals to having pinkish hues with a darker grain. Tasmanian Oak framing adds warmth to prints and spaces and is timeless blending with a variety of interior styles.CREATE
Blackwood (Acacia melanoxylon) is a very attractive Australian native timber perfect for the creation of fine, high-quality picture frames. It's a hardwood that is long lasting and it radiates a unique subtle beauty. The colours range from light honey brown through to a dark chocolate brown and even reddish brown. It has a beautiful dark grain that highlights it's unique beauty. The grain is usually straight but it can be wavy. Our Blackwood frames are sourced from the southern states of Australia through the best sustainable practices.CREATE
Our stretched canvases are made from a high quality 380gsm unbleached pure cotton duck with triple primed white gesso. The 100% cotton canvas is stretched over a a 37mm deep kiln dried pine heavy duty stretcher bar with a rounded edge profile. The canvas is double stabled for maximum canvas strength.
Printing + Ink
We print your images directly onto the stretch canvas using the latest Flatbed UV printer. The UV inks create a natural matte image which is resistant to fading.
Your frame will arrive with a steel wire hanging system secured to the back of the frame. Your frame is lightweight and it can easily be hung from a small screw in the wall. If you require advice with hanging your frames please contact us and let us know what type of wall you have and we will be happy to help.
A float frame is a stylish picture framing technique that has a small gap between the canvas and the frame. The shadow line adds depth to the image and the image appears to be floating within the frame, hence the name. This technique is typically reserved for framing high-end artworks and gallery displays.
We love this style and have simplified the process to make it available to anyone looking to display their images in this stunning way. This technique would typically require weeks and multiple suppliers to print onto canvas, stretch the canvas and then frame which is time consuming and very costly.
At Canvas + Wood, we specialise in float framing. It's all we do and we love it! We design, print and frame your images and artwork in our workshop and deliver Australia wide direct to your doorstep.
