We often get asked about what Canvas Gallery Wraps are. It’s one of the most asked questions we get, so I thought I’d do a blog post just to answer it. Eventually, it’ll go into our page of FAQs. This is what a Canvas Gallery Wrap looks like:
What’s nice about these is that they don’t need to be framed, though you certainly can frame them, if you want. By not having a frame, you can move them to different rooms (or houses) and they won’t need to be re-framed to match the new room. They’re a little more modern-looking than traditional portraits. That one above is twenty by forty inches. Sounds huge, right?
This is how it looks over a couch in a modest-sized living room (12×15 feet).
It doesn’t look as big as it sounds, does it?
Of course, if the Gallery Wrap isn’t the only portrait on the wall, it can work well. This next image shows a 30 x 40 canvas in the middle with a 28×28 canvas on the left. On the right are a couple framed 11×14 prints for some perspective.
So, there you go. When we say that bigger is better for canvases, it’s because we often get people coming back telling us they wish they’d gone with a bigger one.
