Finishing Services at Dragonfly Imaging & Printing

Prints on canvas need to be coated and then stretched and stapled onto stretcher bars. Your canvas can have solid colour sides as shown or you may choose to ‘wrap’ the image around the sides of the stretcher.

We use museum-quality bars and a protective coating designed specifically for inkjet prints. Our prices are customized to each piece, so please ask for a quotation.

Many clients do the stretching and coating themselves using stretchers purchased from art supply stores.

Watercolour paper

Watercolour paper is a wonderful substrate for photographs and reproductions. The size of the white border and the edge finish both impact the final effect as can be seen in the examples in the sidebar.

Deckled Edges

We have torn all four sides in the bottom two images to give 'deckled' edges. Artists often choose this or more simply the bottom edge only. Please ask us for a quotation for this service.

Uncoated sheet stock has a natural deckle on two sides. Please let us know if you would like the deckle retained or cut off.
