Stretched vs. Unstretched Canvas Prints

Displaying Stretched Canvas Prints

Canvas prints have gained immense popularity for their ability to add a touch of elegance to any space.

However, not all canvas prints are created equal. The choice of canvas can significantly impact the way you present your artwork or photographs.

In this article, we'll explore two types of canvas prints—stretched and unstretched—and looks at when and why each might be the ideal choice for your creative endeavours.

What is a Stretched Canvas Print?

Stretched canvas prints are created by stretching a canvas over a wooden frame, creating a ready-to-hang piece of art.

This type of canvas is taut and provides a polished and professional appearance.

Stretched canvases are commonly found in galleries, exhibitions, and homes, enhancing the visual appeal of the displayed artwork.

When to Choose Stretched Canvas?

Stretched canvas prints are perfect for permanent displays in homes, galleries, or commercial spaces.

They make ideal gifts due to their ready-to-hang nature, eliminating the need for additional framing.

If you want your artwork to be an immediate focal point in a room, stretched canvas prints are the way to go.

What is an Unstretched Canvas Print?

Unstretched canvas prints are canvas prints that have not been stretched over a wooden frame.

Instead, they are shipped in a rolled-up form, allowing for more flexible handling and storage.

Unstretched canvas prints are also known rolled canvas prints.

When to Choose Unstretched Canvas

Unstretched canvas prints are a practical choice when international shipping is a consideration, as they are more compact and lightweight.

Additionally, artists and photographers who prefer custom framing or have specific framing requirements may opt for unstretched canvases.
