What do the stretching services mean?

Standard Gallery Wrap


If a frame is too formal for your tastes, consider having your painting gallery wrapped. The painting is stretched around an internal frame so that the artwork covers all sides. We extend the painting by 2” all around so that none of the image is lost.


  • Ready to go from the box to your wall
  • Includes hanging hardware
  • Can be framed later

Box Wrap


For some extra depth on the wall, you can have your painting box wrapped. Just like a gallery wrap, your painting is ready to go right on the wall, but the internal frame is 1.5” instead of ¾”. The artwork is extended around all sides so that none of the image is lost.
