How to hang a canvas print is among the most popular queries from our customers. So here’s our complete guide to hanging canvas!

The truth is, canvas prints are pretty light and don’t need heavy-duty support. But you still want a hanging solution that keeps your print as stable as possible, while staying neatly out of the way to let your beautiful print soak up all the attention.

Well, we like to help our customers get what they want! That’s why we offer a special hanger set that can be added to any canvas print order at a small extra cost.

Here we talk you through the process of hanging canvas using our hanger set. It couldn’t be simpler. Good luck!

 

Our Hanger Set – An Introduction

You can add the hanger set to your order once you reach the product design page. You’ll need one set for each canvas you buy. Each set costs just £3.

NOTE: The hanging technique is rather different for SMALL and for LARGE canvas prints. But each hanger set includes all the elements you’ll need for EITHER technique – so if you added the set to your order, you’re ready to go!

And we’ll give full instructions for both techniques below.

So, here’s what you’ll need to get your new canvas on the wall:

Oh, and just in case you still haven’t actually got a canvas print to hang up, you can take care of that here!

Step 1: With a pencil, mark the points where you’re going to insert the nails into the wall. The sawtooth hanger will rest on the nails later, so the distance the nails sit apart needs to be the same as the distance between the first and last grooves of the sawtooth hanger’s serrated edge. The nails will also need to be on an even plane, so you might want to use a spirit level to check your chosen points are even. When you’re ready, hammer away!

Step 2: Using the pair of (longer) screws, secure the sawtooth hanger to the back of your canvas, in the middle of the top stretcher bar. Again, it’s recommended to do some measuring first to get the position just right. Note: the serrated edge needs to point downwards!

Step 1: Using the four (shorter) screws, secure a triangular D-ring to each of the side stretcher bars so the two D-rings are pointing towards each other horizontally. They should be above the halfway point of the side stretcher bars, but not too close to the top. It helps to do some prior measurements so that the D-rings are on a level plane.

Step 2: Thread the length of cord through both D-rings, pull the cord taut and then tie a knot in each end to secure it, cutting off any length you don’t need.

Step 3: With a pencil, mark the points on the wall where you’re going to insert the nails. If you’re in any doubt, use a spirit level to make sure they’ll be on a level plane. When you’re happy, hammer in the nails. Note: They’ll need to be deep enough into the wall so that the sticking-out part of each nail isn’t longer than the depth of your frame.

Step 4: Hang your large canvas by simply resting the cord on the nails.
