Enhance the Look of Your Framed Canvas

Linen liners are a great alternative to matting, and an easy way to add style to canvas prints. But if you’ve never used them before, you may need some help deciding which size you need. Here’s a question we recently received by email.

 
“How much does a liner overlap the painting?  When you say a liner is 3/4" wide, is that how much of the liner shows, or is part of that tucked under the frame, and if so how much is tucked under the frame?”
 
 
A linen liner is designed to be used in combination with a frame.  Linen liners are a decorative border that acts as a mat for a stretched canvas.
 
The composition of linen liners is different than that of mats.  It’s actually a narrow frame made from wood.  To decorate the surface of the wood, linen fabric is affixed to the wood, resulting in a pleasing design.


 
How do you attach a linen liner to a canvas? The method is basically placing a wood frame around another wood frame and using the provided spring clips or a point driver.  If you order a liner with a wood frame, we will attach it to the frame before shipping it to you. Industry standard dictates frames will overlap the edges of artwork by ¼”.  This is the same across the board for all of our wood frames and linen liners.
 
The linen liner will overlap the edge of the canvas by ¼”.  When a frame is placed around it, the frame lip will overlap the linen liner by ¼”.  Once framed, the visual portion of a ¾” wide linen liner will only be ½”, since ¼” is tucked under the lip of the frame.  We do carry a wider liner (1 ¼”).  That means the visible portion of the liner will be 1” when the frame lip covers ¼”.
We can ship assembled liners up to 90 UI (united inches) just like our frames. Over that size we can ship unassembled.  This is an inexpensive way to achieve a finished look for your beautiful artwork.
