THE TRANSFER PROCESS

Our skilled crafts­men begin with your fine art print.  A protective lami­nate is applied by hand to the surface of the artwork, then adhered perma­nently.  This layer safeguards your artwork from the ravaging effects of the environment; dirt, dust, even the harmful UV rays of sunlight.  Employing a specialized process perfected in our US workshop, we bond your image to 100% cotton, primed artist’s canvas, replicating the look and feel of the original painting.  This method can also be applied to a pho­tographic image, also rendering the appearance of an oil painting.

 

HAND STRETCHING

Your canvas transfer can be hand-mounted to corner-joined, artist’s stretcher bars.  The stretched transfer is ready to be framed in your shop, awaiting your personal expertise.  Or, to minimize shipping costs, we can return your transfer to you simply rolled in a tube.  We have stretcher bars available at competitive prices.

HAND APPLIED BRUSHSTROKES

We retain a number of skilled artisans who can enhance the look of your canvas transfer by hand applying brushstrokes with artist’s acrylic medium.  This custom process ensures that your completed canvas transfer closely matches the original painting and is itself a one-of-a-kind work of art.

CUSTOMIZED TREATMENTS

Your canvas trans­fer comes with a choice of surface finishes (gloss and satin matte) and canvas textures (fine, medium and coarse).  Pricing is determined by the united inch (width + height).  Non-stretched transfers have standard margins of 1 ½”, allowing for stretching in your shop.  Standard stretching fees apply to whole inches; custom stretcher sizes are available at additional cost.  All work is received and completed at our facility in Smithfield, Rhode Island.  Standard turn-around is 10 business days.  We ship via UPS, USPS and FEDEX.
