Ultra-Canvas Gallery Wrap in detail

Explanations for the various parameters of version 2.0 are specified below.

This edge will be fastened using canvas pliers or by hand and stapled to the frame.

set back space for strecherbar

Frame depth

Input the depth of the stretcher bars. Stretcher bars usually have a depth of 2cm and 4cm.

Important! Add about 5mm in order that your printed area will turn around to the back. In that way you can assure that the edges are completely printed. Further on you will have a better possibility to align your picture (see also inner border line).

 set strecher-bar depth


The edge-color will not appear in the frontal view of a perfect photo canvas with for example white edges. Enlarge your image with this parameter to ensure it. Your image will overlap slightly to the edges.

Regular settings are 2 to 3mm, depending on the quality and tolerance of your stretcher strips.

The overlap always refers to one side.
2mm overlap = 4mm enlarged printed image total
3mm overlap = 6mm enlarged printed image total

set overlap

Border type - mirror

The margins of all 4 sides of your printed image are mirrored and inserted as your border. The result is a seamless mirroring of the picture to the borders.

This border type is good suited for images with "straight" edges such as landscape themes.


  • The initial picture will be kept in the frontal view


  • Pictures with uneven elements at the borders will be mirrored accordingly uneven

Border type – wrap print

An easy and efficient way to create the borders is to enlarge the image by the depth of your stretcher strips.


  • Image is running "comfortable" around the borders


  • Image will be (if not quadratic) distorted. The more tendency to panorama-format, the greater the distortion.
  • Information of the image could turn to the borders. The smaller the image, the more information can be lost.

Inner border line

This is a beneficial reference line to align the stretcher bars on the printed image. The print is facing the table, the backside of the image is facing the stretcher bars.

You usually don´t need this reference line when you chose "mirror", "wrap print" or colored edges like black or white, these borders will give you a good orientation. You will recognize that pictures with white areas closed to the borders and white borders are not that easy to align. The inner border line is a great help here.
