Fujifilm has announced the release of a revolutionary framing system for canvas prints. Wunderbars gives users a new way to create canvas wraps - quickly, easily, without the need for specialist tools and thanks to Wunderbars' exclusive stretcher bars each canvas will retain its tension.
Wunderbars' constant tension stretcher bars are even easier than standard stretchers to construct and stretch canvas prints. Wunderbars are precision machined so there is no need to measure the frame to get it square or constantly hit the frame with a mallet to keep it square during stretching, it will always remain square.
There is no requirement for complicated or overpriced stretching systems, machinery or devices, the only tool necessary is a staple gun. Wunderbars' unique self tensioning corner blocks ensure there's no more sagging canvas, it always stays taught and will contract and expand to the room's temperature and humidity. Each frame features a sprung pin mechanism which automatically stretches the canvas and ensures it remains under constant tension, this means there'll be no more visits from customers complaining of a sagging canvas. No wedges are needed, making for a cleaner finish on the rear of the frame.
A natural progression from traditional stretcher bars and stretching techniques the Wunderbars system has been developed for photographers and framers from the hobbyist right up to the production canvas framer.
The wood used for Wunderbars is Tulip wood which, unlike pine, is a hard wood with a top quality look and feel. It's a heavyweight timber with very little knotting. It helps give the completed frame a top quality professional feel.
In addition to being a great advance on standard canvas wrapping systems, Wunderbars ticks all the environmental boxes too - the wood comes from sustainable sources and it is possible to reset and reuse a frame.
