WrapStuffGallery Wrap Clusters, Mosaics and Splits, oh MY! 

Our photo lab’s wraps provide a contemporary alternative to framing and a unique line of products to add to your studio’s collection.  With the addition of clusters, mosaics and splits, the options are even greater than ever before.

So now that we have added Mosaics and Splits, what is the difference in these products?

Cluster wraps provide the ability to display multiple coordinating images in a grouping designed to showcase your work in a home or office setting. Clusters are available in your choice of canvas fine art or photographic pearl paper.

 Clusters are multiple images.  Select a custom coordinating color from an image to embellish the panel edges.

Mosaics  allow a single image to be split across multiple panels to create an elegant mosaic look. Choose from four unique design layouts to enhance your image to its fullest potential.  Mosaics are also available in your choice of canvas fine art or photogrpahic pearl paper.

Mosaics are a single image. Select a custom coordinating color from the image to embellish the panel edges. 

Split wraps allow one image to be split over multiple canvas panels with the image on each individual panel wrapped around a 1½-inch stretcher frame. We offer three configurations to choose from,  and these are also printed on your choice of canvas fine art or photographic pearl paper.

Split wraps are one image.  The image wraps around each panel.
