How To Create an Image Portfolio

Creating a custom portfolio is a simple and great way to source, share and present content to your clients and colleagues. You can inventory favorite images for future projects and create as many portfolios as you need.

If you are a manufacturer and specialize in a specific style like Impressionism or Vintage Ads or a genre like Nautical or Horses, you can create a portfolio with only that content. Perfect for your customers or sales teams, whether they are in-house or on the road.

If you are a designer then use your portfolio as a presentation of imagery sourced for a specific project- Your portfolio title could be by project and your name.

How to Customize Canvas

blog-help-and-tips-customize-canvas

How to Order and Customize Canvas

Ordering canvas is a great way to enhance you product line while increasing your margins. You can specify canvas as rolled or stretched, and include options such as bar depth, side colors, and wrap style. Our 350 gsm, acid-free, archival canvas has a tight, natural weave which maximizes image quality and ensures a lifetime of enjoyment.

Un-stretched or Rolled Canvas-GCR

Un-stretched or Rolled Canvas is a giclee on canvas. We ship these items rolled with standard 3” white borders to allow for easy stretching. Gallery wrap borders (mirrored images) or colored borders are also available upon request. Standard image coverage with these borders is 1.75” within the 3” border.

Stretched Canvas-GCS

Stretched canvas is a finished, ready-to-hang stretched giclee on canvas. These items are available with deep or regular depth stretcher bars as well as Museum Wrap (solid color on the side) or Gallery Wrap (mirrored image on the side).

Museum Wrap

With museum wrap, the canvas is wrapped with your option of side color. All canvas items are perfectly suitable to be hung without a frame, and there are seven side color choices.

Gallery Wrap

Gallery wrap adds a contemporary effect by mirroring the outer border of the image onto the sides of the wrapped canvas. This premium option is perfect for abstracts, florals, and landscapes.

GCS-375208-1818-142

 

Bar Depth

Stretcher bars are used to build the wooden inner-frame that the canvas is stretched around. The depth is the distance from the back of the canvas to the face of the canvas. Our bars are made with premium kiln-dried woods and are available in deep or regular sizes.

Our deep bar depth is 1 ½” and is a terrific option for a contemporary feel.

Our regular bar depth is ¾” and is the ideal option if you plan to frame your canvas art.
