Installing Dubai’s skyline in a hotel lobby

Your work space is the physical embodiment of your aspirations and a mirror to your clients and guests. In a recent installation our client, a 5-star hotel, wanted to change the look of their lobby. The client wanted a wallpaper that showcased Dubai, its high-rise buildings and skyline but in a minimalistic manner which matched the colours of their décor. Picture POD team worked with the client to create the 10 meters X 2.7 meters wallpaper, on the Evergreen fabrics from Dickson Coatings with Jet Tex – Blanc texture. Matt finish of the wallpaper was a perfect match for the client’s furniture, décor and elevated the interiors in a cohesive manner.

In another interesting installation, Picture POD was given the task of creating a wallpaper that looked like a window to greenery and outdoors. The client, one of the most popular schools in Dubai, wanted to change the dull look of their office by adding the image of a calm, green forest to one wall.

Canvas Framing with Picture POD

goframe.png

In this Picture POD blog, we have a look at the magical GOframe 1500 PRO System. Magical because the framing system is designed to be the ultimate solution for quick, crisp, and hassle-free framing for all medium and large sized frames. This canvas framing process involves no additional tools, adhesives, measurements or people- it is easy to do on your own and it takes few minutes only.

Our Canvas Framing System with new improved positioning corners and bars makes framing a canvas in a stretched gallery wrap an easy 5-minute job. At Picture POD we always aim to create a perfectly printed canvas that is ready for display and we achieve that with our Canvas Framing System. The stretcher bars, corresponding to the dimensions of the finished frame, are made from the best grades of North American basswood which is ideal for museum quality frames due to its stability, low resin, and lignin content. The frame’s wood is treated by kiln drying to a moisture content of below 8% which eliminates warp or shrinkage at a later stage.

Before we learn how to frame our Canvas, it is important to know basics of wrapping.
Gallery Wrap is a method of stretching an artist’s canvas so that the canvas wraps around the sides of the stretcher bar and is secured to the back of the wooden frame. Sides of the canvas that wrap around the frame carry the canvas’s image. This is also called an Image wrap.

Museum Wrap is different as the image is displayed only on the face of the frame only. The sides of the canvas that wrap around the frame are left white, or a colour from the image can be used as a border.
Mirror Wrap is different as the parts of the image closest to the edge simply get mirrored over the sides of the canvas as a mirrored image. This is a bit different from an image wrap, which simply continues the image over the side; a mirror border literally mirrors what is at the edge and extended it to the frame’s sides.
The Canvas Framing Systems at Picture POD work with all the wraps as the variations in wrap is a consideration at the time of actual printing. Picture POD’s Smart Editor gives you the option to have your canvas frame’s edges printed as an extension of the image or in a specific colour.

The Canvas Framing System comes with 4 positioning corners, trimmer, blade pack, U shaped fasteners and frame bars. You can order frames in a range of sizes and mix and match the sizes to create interesting collages. The width of frame in the GOframe 1500 Standard Range is 0.95 cms thick and width of frame in the 1500 PRO Range is 2.22 cms thick, both are 3.81 cms high. Picture POD has; 40cms X 40cms, 40cms X 60 cms, 60 cms X 60 cms and 100 cms X 100 cms sizes available for order.

It is very important that your plans for DIY canvas framing do not get doused in dripping glue or messy adhesives, which is why the framing bars of our Canvas Framing System come with a high-quality adhesive tape which eliminates glue mess or accidental adhesion.

The most frustrating part of framing is often the alignment, a slight miscalculation or misplacement can lead to a wrong cut or a lopsided framing. Picture POD’s Canvas Framing System completely eliminates the need to manually align the frame by using corner clamps that ensure perfectly alighted stretcher frames. These corner clamps don’t just ensure perfect 90-degree angles but they also distance the canvas from the bars so that the adhesive tape does not touch the base. You can be sure that the canvas is in the center of the frame by simply lining up the edges of the frame bars.

The stretching bars fit on the corner clamps to create the flat shape of the final frame, without any hammers, scales, staplers or nails. Once the frame is assembled simply place it over the image, use the guidelines of the canvas to trim the excess canvas off, if required. Once the canvas is trimmed exactly in size we lay it over the inverted image, so that the edges of the yellow corners are flushed with the edges of the canvas.
Gently push the bars downwards so that the adhesive makes contact with the image. This adhesive would be sufficient to ensure that the canvas stays intact and it is advisable to not touch the adhesive or lay it on the canvas until this step.

With all 4 bars now adhered, simply trim the corners of the canvas as that area will not be required in framing. It is easy to cut these triangular areas, as the corner clamps provide us with easy guidelines. Next we run our blade throught the slit in the corner clamp, this splits the canvas for folding on the adjacent bars.

After the cut, simply remove the corner clamp and fold the cut canvas corners to the bar’s adhesive on all four corners.

The frame is formed by bringing two adjacent sides together and firmly inserting the U shaped fastener in the grooves provided, you may use a small hammer to secure its position. Repeating the same for all side we see the upright frame and we can remove the adhesive layer from all four sides. To ensure that the adhesive sticks to all side properly, press the excess canvas down on the stretched bars, follow the first side with the opposite side and then the remaining sides.

We can often frame an image or canvas but its surface is not tense and after some time it feels rather droopy but Picture POD’s Canvas Framing System solves this problem by providing tensioners. These tensioner are small bars that fit snugly into place to allow for more tension that produces a drum like feel to the canvas. For a larger canvas, it is advisable to use a central bar for additional support.
So say good bye to nails, glues, scales, and accidents to experience the simple elegance of framing with Picture POD’s simple and effective Canvas Framing System.
