Re: HD Bonding tape question

Thanks Prospero. Because on the height / detail of the face of the magnet I won't be able to put much pressure on to help with adhesion, which was my concern about using tape but from a quick play with this stuff it feels quite high tack so should be ok...? Davie000 - I had thought about silicone, t...

Re: Pricing software

Thanks for that Justin, that is a very good point to consider and frankly I am happy to raise with Mark and get his input. You would expect some outages for updates but equally expect notice of when these would scheduled and it being carried out (as best as possible) during a quieter period. I was s...

Re: Stretcher bar sizes?

Of course and that was my caveat to my estimate I gave for the job. :D I also pointed out the possible issue with not having enough excess material. Glad you are still fan of the stapler, my hands can be a bit stiff at times with my MS. Do you recommend an specificities size staples for canvas stret...

Re: Pricing software

I am in the process of trialing I-Framer. I had a look at it a while back when there wasn't much feedback on it but haven't been able to find a Mac friendly software and decided after reading this post to speak to Mark. For what its worth, my experience so far - three days in - Mark has gone to grea...

Re: Stretcher bar sizes?

Thanks Prospero for the added detail and recommendation, thats really helpful. I have only seen a picture of the work until the lady drops it off, the next hurdle to overcome is the small amount of excess material the one canvas seems to have, looks to be 25-30mm. :Slap: Also looking at Arrow T50 Co...

Hi all, I have a client who is looking to have two canvases stretched and framed. I have very little experience other than a workshop course and framing pre-stretched canvases.

Hi all, Hoping to get a little help. A client has requested R&H A195 moulding for the prints they wished to have framed. They aren’t big with glass sizes of 410x340, 310x310 and 350x260.
