Introducing Fine Art Media Stretched Gallery Wraps!

After the holidays, I finally found the time to experiment with various fine art medias and produce gallery-wrapped images, over stretcher bars—much like stretched canvas, but with fine art medias

This delicate process allows me to offer my portrait and wedding clients another beautiful and unique option to show their favorite images.  It also is an option for artists that I do medium format digital copywork reproduction and giclee fine art printing for their own work.  So far, the best fine art medias I have found to stretch are Bamboo, Sugar Cane, and a finely textured cotton fine art paper from Breathing Color.  These beautiful fine art papers are suitable for just about any image.  Images are printed with archival pigmented inks and spray sealed.  Images may be printed up to 44″ in width by whatever length.

After sealing, the image is carefully stretched using a unique process over wood stretcher bars, just as would be done for a stretched canvas. The image is mirrored and wrapped on the back of the bars as well.A pneumatic staple gun is used on the back of the mirrored gallery-wrapped image for both fine art medias and stretched canvas.

I’m really excited to be able to offer this very unique photography product to my clients.  For more information on mirrored gallery wrapped stretched wedding and family portraits and art, contact me at my boutique portrait studio in Carmel, CA.  Ken (831) 626-1844
