Goes in the same press put we use a conservation reversible adhesive

Goes in the same press has a special adhesive for canvas and is a lower cost option for decorative canvas art then stretch mounting.
Art produced on canvas or fabric is hand stretched around a custom stretcher bar frame. It is stapled on the edges that are cover once the item is framed.
This option is when an item needs to be hand sewn. A cross stitch is laced around an acid free foam core board or item that are sewn in position in a shadow box are a few examples.
When a piece of art is first attached to Artcare foam core and then positioned over a solid piece of mat board. It gives the illusion of floating in the frame.
