Canvas Wraps
Imagekind provides state-of-the-art gallery wraps with either a white, black or the image wrapped around the stretcher frame. Let me know if you are interested in the warps so I can make sure you get the best possible price, as the matrix on the Imagekind system does not allow sufficient customization for canvas wraps.

Framing at ImageKind:
Samples of the frames available through Imagekind are shown in the collage. Through the IK design interface you can pre-visualize your finished piece from thousands of moulding and matting options, and adjust the width of the matting you prefer and glazing types.. (see Custom Framing Services for more information)

Imagekind's customer service team can also assist if you need precise sizing not listed in the charts or other services that may involved special pricing.  Call the main number - selected Extension 3- ask for Tracy.

Notes on File Size and resolution - Ordering Large Print

If you are planning to order pieces greater than 30" in width it is best practice to contact us so we can review and verify that the resolution of the specific image is suitable for your application. While some of our pieces are designed to print up to 96" wide, not all images are created equal. In many cases, the master file has not been uploaded - and files with a higher resolution may be available which is important if you are making larger photographic style prints. Further, a few images were created from source photographs that were very small, such as daguerreotypes, (small images made on metal plates in the 3 to 4" range); therefore prints larger than 16 x 20 may not be satisfactory.

Our clients include the US District Courts (All Bay Area Facilities), Momos restaurant, San Francisco Bay Club, the Century Plaza, Omni and Palace Hotels, #2 Harrison Street - historical Hills Bros Coffee Exhibits, Nestle Beverage, Charles Schwab, Union Bank ( Bayview Branch), and Tristar pictures.
