Owling Dog artists print photographs on gallery-wrapped canvas. What is gallery-wrapped canvas? Gallery-wrapped canvas is cotton canvas that is wrapped tightly around the stretcher bars (wooden frame), folded over the corners and tacked down for strength and stability. We use 1.5" width stretcher bars so that each piece of art stands out from the surface against which it is laid - whether that is an easel or a wall. It also makes sense that using a higher depth wooden frame will not only prevent warping, but will also make your art stand up better to unforeseen bumps or falls. Gallery-wrapped canvas is an age-old method of preserving artists' canvas, most often seen in museums. Our images are printed using archival pigment inks that withstand a lifetime and more. Pigment ink enters the fibers of cotton canvas, unlike dry ink which lays only on the surface. The term 'archival' denotes the lifetime durability and true color associated with these materials.
