Canvas frames

We use high quality canvas frames made frome jointed wood. Profile of the frame is 20x43mm.

You can order canvas frames in any size that you want. We also have higher frames (40x43mm).

Joint wood canvas frames are good because they wont bend. We recommend to buy your painting canvases from us. They are a little bit more expensive than ready-made canvases in art shops, but the quality is also much better. When using our joint wood canvas frames, you can be sure that your artwork will last for decades. If you would like to order, you can contact us by sending a message through contact form.
