Information on Gallery Floats and Gallery-Wrap Canvases
All of my images are available as gallery floats. In the gallery float style of presentation, the print is first mounted onto high-quality 1/4" medium-density fiberboard, then covered with a UV-resistant, anti-glare, protective laminate. The edges are lightly beveled, and a decorative black trim is applied. In the final step, strips of one-inch thick MDF are attached to the back. These strips are recessed two inches from the edge of the piece so that the finished piece appears to "float" one inch away from the wall. The piece is hung from a French cleat, which is positioned atop a mirror bar attached to the wall. All mounting hardware is included.
All of my images are also available as gallery-wrap canvases. In this style, the image is first printed on high-quality canvas. The printed canvas is given three coats of protective lacquer, then stretched onto traditional artist stretcher bars such as those used by oil painters. All gallery-wrap canvases are ready to hang. All sizes of gallery-wrap canvases use stretcher bars measuring one and a half inches thick. None of the image area shown on this website is lost in this process. The software I use adds a two-inch border to the image by copying the outermost two inches of image, flipping that strip of image over, and adding that strip of mirrored image to the outer edge of the main image, as you can see in the examples above.
