Make it a wrap with JetMaster Display Systems Gallery Wraps

One of the fastest sellers in today’s market has been the ‘gallery wrap.’ 3 dimensional decor images make an impact wherever they are displayed - on the wall at your home, at the office, at a special event or on your grandmother’s mantle.

 

Whether you’re creating prints for an exhibition or home decor, a simple, reliable and low-cost solution is the best option. The JetMaster Display System for any inkjet photo, fine art papers and canvas is the ideal gallery wrap system with its simple design and easy assembly. 

Print your favorite picture on either inkjet canvas or photo paper using templates provided in the link below.

Gently peel away a small section of the release liner and position your print on the pre-cut board. Peel off the rest of the release liner, pressing the print flat and smooth on to the board you do so. Trim around the edges of the template with a craft knife, then peel away the remaining release liner.

Fold in and press down the self-adhesive, pre-cut tabs to form the box edges, pressing in the print at each corner to make them neat. Secure with an adhesive tab – and you have a beautiful, boxed print, ready for hanging. 

Your JetMaster Wrap is now ready for display at your home, office, exhibition, or your grandmother’s mantleWith JetMaster, durable, lightweight gallery wraps can be created in minutes, using just a craft knife and a cutting surface. The base is a pre-cut, pre-laminate corrugated board to which you simply trim and adhere your print, and fold over the edges. No bubbles, untidy corners, staples or hooks. A fully assembled JetMaster ‘gallery wrap’ is so light it can be hung from just one tack.

    I have just tried the 8 1/2 x 11 Jetmaster Gallery Wrap System. I have previously used stretcher bars and the Hahnemuhle System for my gallery (canvas) wraps. The Jetmaster system is easier than stretcher bars, but timewise I would judge it about the same as the Hahnemuhle System. The Jetmaster template was helpful, but somewhat inaccurate to use for sizing the picture (I suggest adding an 1/8 or 1/4 inch to the template lines to be sure the picture "wraps" with no white canvas showing). The assembly instructions are a little misleading (although I admit I did not view the video) as they say to "trim excess corner material" but you need to study the picture in the instructions to realize that the small "triangle" is NOT to be cut out (this ruined 3 out of 4 corners for me). The 8 1/2 x 11 system (finished size 5 1/2 x 8) came with a handy built in picture stand, but it only works in the vertical (I had a horizontal!). Last, the finished product from the Jetmaster System does not look as "professional" as stretcher bars or the Hahnemuhle system, but if it's cost is low enough it might be the right product for many applications. In a frame (e.g., a floating frame) and hanging on a wall, I doubt you could tell the difference from any other system. With a little experience with the Jetmaster System, I suspect you could create gallery wraps very efficiently.

    Hey Allan,

    The feedback you've provided is much appreciated and helpful! We've found that using the information provided on the JetMaster Website did help a bit, along running a few test samples. Try watching the short video clip once you've received your free larger JetMaster Pack, the video itself is pretty short (about 3 and a half minutes long) and gives you a pretty good idea where to cut and fold without trimming excess material. Thanks again for providing us with some feedback!

    I just finished trying the sample I was sent. First, it would be nice if the template had some identifying marks that printed out on the edge of the file to line it up easier. It was just one extra step that needed to be made, but now I have a new 8.5x11 template.

    I too had a horizontal file, so the stand didn't work for this. I did modify the back so I could hang it on the wall to see how it would look.

    The overall weight nicer to mail to someone and this would be a good solution for non-permanent applications. I'm curious how it would hold up over time being used as a permanent display (since it's cardboard, will humidity affect it much).

    I am pleased with the look of the sample.

    Hi! Well I was very excited to get my free wrap pack in the mail, and put it together last night. I was a bit surprised that the foundation was cardboard rather than either a thin wood or perhaps a stamp-cut plastic that should be just as cost-effective and perhaps a bit longer-lasting? I think you'll broaden the applications & marketability there. Also - I had a hard time getting the folded edges to stay down until the frame was assembled completely, and then it seemed to be slightly skewed - like a warped cookie sheet in a hot oven if that makes sense? :-) If a 5X7 does that, I would like to see the stability on a 16 X 20? Maybe the cardboard on that size has more heft to it? The overall look is beautiful, just not sure how consistent you'd be able to make it with different materials, or how long it will stay that way.
    Thanks!

    Hi! Well I posted a comment but I don't see it here so I'll put it up again - Very excited to try the free wrap, and was able to put it together very quickly, but was surprised the foundation was cardboard - wouldn't trust it to keep it's shape long-term so that limits the applications of the wraps, and hence the price. Wouldn't a thin stamp-cut plastic be better, and still cost-effective? Also - I had trouble getting the adhesive edges to stay down once folded in - that might work better on the larger sizes, but the finished wrap didn't lay flat - it was somewhat skewed like a warped cookie sheet, so I'd like to see a larger size to see if the behavior is the same or if it performs better - and how the shape is supported in that size. Overall - attractive finished product - thanks!
