About Canvas Frame
Typical canvas frames are cut from Pine, Oak, Alder, Cherry, or Birch wood, while high-quality ones use Mahogany, Ebony, and Purple Heart wood and more. However, all of these woods dry out over time and are vulnerable to bending, warping the painting; it is thus of critical importance that the frame material be chosen carefully.
Digital POD’s Canvas Frames use exclusively Obeche wood, which, because of its extreme durability, maintains its shape for over 10 years. It has a mid-level cost among woods, but is perfect for the masterpiece canvas, being so strong and lightweight – optimal for hanging on the wall.
Canvas Corner Finishing
The corners of the canvas are hidden by folding the canvas over them. In standard industry practice, the canvas is stapled secure to the corners, which causes an error margin of 1 to 3 mm to the canvas’ position on the frame. In this event, the entire frame gets warped by continual torque within 4 to 5 years and loses all value as a frame.
Digital POD used to use this method of corner finishing – but starting from 2019, we have adopted a new technique, in which the wooden limbs are carved with a jig before being connected. With the frame secured from warping and torque, the canvas is stretched over the frame, leaving no visible staple marks.
This process is more time-consuming than typical practice, but we believe our extra efforts go a long way towards satisfying the client.
