Custom Framing and Installation: Works on Canvas

At The Americas Collection, we understand the significance of framing not just as a means of protecting the artwork but also as a way to enhance its aesthetic appeal and visual impact. Our comprehensive approach to framing ensures that every artwork receives the attention to detail it deserves, from the initial selection of materials to the final installation in your chosen space.

Gallery Wrap

Before going over the framing process, there are a couple of options for your painting that do not require a frame. Stretching techniques like gallery and museum wrap can ensure your artwork’s clean and presentable look. With Gallery Wrap, the canvas is stretched around the wooden stretcher bars, with the artwork extending seamlessly to the edges. This creates a bold and contemporary look, allowing the painting to command attention and become a focal point in any room.

Museum Wrap

Museum wrap works best for paintings with unfinished edges or delicate surfaces. This technique involves covering the exposed edges of the stretched canvas with fabric or specialized tape, providing a clean and polished finish while protecting the artwork from damage. Our skilled framers at The Americas Collection are adept at executing both techniques with precision and care, preserving the integrity of your artwork.

If you decide that your work can benefit from framing, we offer a diverse selection of frames to suit your preferences and complement the style of your artwork. Whether you seek a modern and contemporary look or prefer a more classic and traditional aesthetic, we have frames that can fulfill your vision.

We highly recommend floating frames for those seeking a modern and contemporary feel. Unlike traditional frames that sit on top or around the edges of the painting, floating frames create a sense of space and independence, allowing the artwork to stand out on its own. Alternatively, if your artwork has a classic flair, we offer a selection of more traditional-looking frames that can complement the overall appearance of your work of art.

Our team at The Americas Collection is dedicated to helping you find the perfect frame that enhances the beauty of your artwork while staying true to your style and preferences. Once your painting has been expertly framed, our services extend beyond the gallery walls to ensure a seamless installation process. Our team of experienced installers is equipped with the knowledge and expertise to handle a variety of installation methods, ensuring that your artwork is securely and elegantly displayed in your chosen space.

Installation Services

Anchor Points Installation

One of the most common installation methods is the two-anchor point system. This method involves securely fastening the artwork to the wall using two anchor points, providing stability and support while minimizing the risk of damage. Our installers carefully measure and position the anchor points to ensure that your artwork is perfectly aligned and balanced, creating a visually pleasing display that enhances the overall aesthetic of your space.

Wire Hanging Installation

Another popular installation method we offer is wire hanging, which provides a simple and versatile solution for hanging a wide range of artworks. Our skilled installers use high-quality wire and hardware to hang your artwork securely, ensuring it is safely and securely suspended from the wall.

French Cleat Installation

We recommend using French cleats for artworks that require added security and stability. This sophisticated hanging system consists of two interlocking brackets, one attached to the back of the artwork and the other to the wall. The interlocking design provides a strong and stable foundation, ensuring your artwork remains securely in place for years.
