Gallery Canvas Specs


A Gallery Canvas with a mirrored edge is a stunning way to display your favorite artwork or photograph. The canvas is stretched tightly over a wooden frame, creating a smooth and flawless surface for the image to be printed on. The mirrored edge, also known as a wraparound edge or mirror wrap, is a technique where the image is extended around the edges of the canvas, giving the illusion that the image is continuing beyond the edge of the canvas.

The mirrored edge serves two main purposes. First, it allows the entire image to be preserved and displayed without losing any of its visual impact. Second, it creates a three-dimensional effect, making the image appear to pop off the wall. This effect is particularly striking when viewed from a distance or in a well-lit room.

The Gallery Canvas itself is made from high-quality materials, such as heavyweight cotton or linen, which ensures that the colors of the image are rich, vibrant, and long-lasting. The canvas is also coated with a protective finish, which prevents the image from fading, cracking, or peeling over time.

Overall, a Gallery Canvas with a mirrored edge is a beautiful and sophisticated way to showcase your favorite artwork or photograph. Whether displayed in a home or office, it is sure to catch the eye and create a sense of visual drama and interest in any space.
