Making a Gallery Wrap

While at my parent’s place this past weekend, we printed up some canvas prints and finished them with a gallery wrap. I thought it might make a cool video so I recorded the process on my D300s. Making the gallery wrapped canvas photo is a  really slick system that the guys got from breathing color and have since customized to work with their own local wood products for the frames. The wood used is White & Black poplar from Love, Saskatchewan.

The beauty of the breathing color system is that it places the folded corner of the canvas inside the mitred wood frame making it very sturdy. The canvas can’t pull out of the frame, making for an excellent end product. I hope you enjoy the video! 🙂

PS: The prints featured in the video are being donated to the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation for fund raising purposes. My custom Pheasant print and the white tailed deer print will be available for auction at the Souris- Moose Creek Wildlife Federation’s 20th Annual Wildlife Fund Raiser and Auction in Oxbow, SK on April 9th. Show up and take one of the beautiful prints home with you! 😉

In the Print Shop

Over the Christmas holidays, I was able to check out my dad’s new setup. He does a lot of wildlife photography and has the need to do larger prints. He and a friend bought a gigantic Epson 9600 printer that is capable of printing stuff 44″ by 100 feet long (on a roll). We were experimenting with printing some 16×20 canvas which turned out well. We also threw together some home made frames. The way we made the  frames worked, but there is a much simpler way to make them using a really cool setup from Breathing Color Inc. There’s a YouTube vid here explaining the quick, easy process.

The beauty of that system is that it wraps the corners of the canvas into the frame mitre and makes for a much nicer end result. But we still had fun doing ours up “the old fashioned” way. 🙂
