In addition, different types of pieces require specific attention/care and may be permanently altered by the framing process.1) Canvas, canvas must be stretched onto wood bars. Consumer acknowledges that such stretching may cause the paint to crack and fully releases Owner from any liability that may result from such damage. 2) Many Prints/Photos/Posters larger the 11x14 will be dry mounted to foam core.
