About Canvas Art

All canvas purchases made at UrbanLoftArt.com are hand crafted by our professional canvas experts. The canvas art we ship from our facility is specially made for each order that is placed. We use high quality equipment and materials to ensure customer satisfaction.

The first step we take in putting art on canvas is heat pressing or printing a single art piece directly onto the canvas. When the print is permanent on the canvas, it is then stretched around wooden hand crafted canvas bars. Click here for instructions on how to hang canvas art.

Gallery Wrap Method

When an art print is put on canvas using the gallery wrap method, the sides of the print wrap slightly around the canvas bars. This way of wrapping a canvas creates a 3-D or gallery like look. This method is good for larger art pieces or artwork that has one single focus.

Museum Wrap Method

Using the museum wrap method to put artwork on canvas is where the image stops at the edge. With museum wrapped art on canvas, the image is shown on the front of the canvas, the sides are generally white or can be painted any of the colors we offer.

Two Bar Depths

Customizing the depth of the canvas is available whether you choose the gallery wrap or museum wrap method. At UrbanLoftArt.com, we offer the depth of the canvas bars to be .75 inches, this is the default size. We also offer 1.5 inches for canvas depth as well. 1.5 inch bars tend to be more study due to the fact that they are thicker.

Brushstrokes

Paintings on canvas can really compliment the piece and even make it look more like the original. A clear, acrylic gel is brushed onto the canvas when the brushstrokes option is selected. Our professional brushstroke artists natural strokes on the piece to help recreate the look of the original. At UrbanLoftArt.com we offer standard brushstrokes as well as heavy brushstrokes. As shown below, standard brushstrokes get a thin layer of gel applied to the canvas. Heavy brushstrokes get a thicker layer of the gel, this adds more texture to the piece if desired.
