An unstretched canvas reproduction is a print on heavy canvas that has not yet been affixed to stretcher bars or a frame. It is shipped to you rolled up in a sturdy tube, saving you money on shipping costs and allowing you the choice of how you want to mount and present it in your home.
All canvas giclee reproductions on this site are unstretched and printed with a standard 1.5″ white border on every side all the way around.
There are two main benefits of buying a reproduction on unstretched canvas. First, it saves you money on shipping costs when you buy it, and second, it can save you on expensive framing costs because an unstretched canvas gives you the flexibility of deciding how you want to display it in your home — framed or unframed.
With an unstretched canvas, you simply take it to a frame shop and they will mount it on stretcher bars. Once it is mounted, you can either hang it for display as is, or you can choose a professional frame to show it in.
