Kala has been appointed as the pan-European, preferred partner (wide format) for IG Wrap’s patent-pending Gallery Wrap system. This tool-free canvas framing solution is both simple and cost-effective and is ideal for print service providers wishing to add value to their printed output.
Typically, gallery wraps are hard to stretch and require a lot of patience, skill and time – thereby making them costly finishing options. However, the IG Wrap Gallery Wrap system is so simple that anyone can now frame canvases – fast – and without the need for any training or the usages of specialized tools.
The starter kits offered by Kala include wooden framing bars with adhesive strips, reusable corner clamps, staples, acid-free glue and easy-to-follow instructions. Beyond these items, no other tools are required. The system is available in two framing bar widths – 1¼” and 1¾” – and can be used to create over 500 different canvas size configurations up to a maximum of 60” wide.
Laurent Bouchard, managing director of Kala, comments, “We first showed the IG Wrap framing system at Fespa and visitors to our stand were very impressed with the ease of use of the system and with the finished product. The tension of the finished canvas is impressive and the finished corners are perfect. Plus, the quality of the solution guarantees the longevity of the finished canvas frame.”
End user pricing starts from around €6 for a 10x12-inch frame (1¼” width).
