Yes, and we offer this service. If you do plan to stretch your prints, be sure to figure in a border to the print.
You can wrap canvas to the back of the stretcher bars or to the sides. Wrapping to the back allows the print to be displayed without a frame, however more border is necessary. If stretching to the sides a frame will be needed to cover unsightly staples.
For heavy duty back-wrapped prints, allow a 3 inch border for stretching. Likewise, a 1.5 inch border for side-wrapped. For standard bars, allow 2 inch and 1 inch borders respectively.
A stretched canvas will add weight and dimensional size to a package. We need to know these factors before quoting a shipping price, but it typically will not be more than twice normal shipping cost.
If you want to stretch you own canvas, we will leave a border for you to work with. We also recommend applying a clear coat after stretching.
