Longmont, Colorado-based grand-format digital graphics company Circle Graphics announces that it has received two patents from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, both focused on methods of construction used to assemble image display canvas art.
The company says the method of construction improves the traditional process of stretching and stapling canvas art to a wooden frame and externally folding each corner. The traditional technique can result in a finished product with bulky corners where the image may eventually sag, warp or crack.
Instead, the method developed by Circle Graphics does not use wood frames but rather a patented design and customized manufacturing process that results in an enclosed, rigid structure that provides a solid base on which to mount printed substrates.
The company says the advancements contained within the patents will allow it to offer a higher quality canvas art product without increased cost.
