What is the difference between canvas types?

Canvas Board

Canvas board is approximately 1/8" (3.175mm) thick. They are made by gluing canvas material on top of a rigid, lightweight board. Also known as canvas panels. These can be propped on a shelf or small easel and will need to be framed to be hung on a wall. I have also used adhesive picture hanging strips to hang these (check compatibility with your wall type before using).

Stretched Canvas

Standard stretched canvas is made by stretching canvas material over wooden stretcher bars and stapling the canvas to the sides or back. This type of canvas is typically 5/8" or 3/4" (16-19mm) thick and can be hung directly on a wall or framed. This type of canvas is traditionally framed. I recommend framing for larger sizes; over time these thinner stretcher bars may warp.

Gallery Wrapped Canvas

Gallery wrapped stretched canvas is made by stretching canvas material over wooden stretcher bars which are thicker than standard stretched canvas. This type of canvas is typically 1.5" (38mm) thick and can be hung directly on a wall. This is a good option if the canvas size is large and you do not plan on framing it. I recommend adding a hanging wire on the back to make the painting easier to hang.
