Thin Wraps
« on: April 07, 2013, 12:13:30 PM »

noticing for the first time... Thin Wraps

looks to be an 'affordable' way to show / sell prints..

anyone making these themselves?

how are these 'sandwiched'

how does a person apply the laminate -

looks like these are 3 layers

laminate
metallic print
gatorboard

then corners folded over...

how would a person assemble such a thing, what tools are needed?  would we need for instance a vacuum press to do this sort of work?

how would the corners get folded to cover the gatorboard -

many thanks

If you're talking canvas wraps, we do a lot on 16mm thick Chinese artist canvases.  Then just print, coat and stretch as normal.  These are very low cost and we leave the original canvas in place, just wrap over it so it ends up with two layers of canvas - your image and the original unprinted one under it.

We do this because if you remove the original canvas the frame often skews from 90 degrees.

they seem to be doing these with metallic paper...

perhaps an alternative to face mounting...

More of a thick wrap than a thin wrap but I imagine the process is similar: http://youtu.be/-SmvSABw9Mw.
