Just arrived! You found the perfect snapshot of the kids (no one’s eyes are closed and no food stains) and the canvas or painting you ordered is gorgeous. Naturally, you are looking forward to hanging it on the wall. Do you know how it is done correctly? You could just use a nail and a hammer. But we have a better idea. Just follow the steps that we are going to indicate to hang a canvas like an expert. It takes five minutes.
What do you need to hang a painting on the wall
Thicker than the others, our Luxury Canvas comes with a free hanging kit but you can also add it to the Classic Canvas. Canvas hanging kit includes:
- 1 square sawtooth bracket
- 2 screws
- 1 hook
- 1 clove
- 2 adhesive pads (to protect the wall)
- Apart from that, you will need: a Phillips screwdriver and a spirit level.
Here you go for the ultimate guide to hanging canvas prints.
First step: put a mark on the wall
With a pencil, mark the point where you want to hang your canvas on the wall. Note that the top of the canvas will be slightly above the pencil mark.
Second step: nail the hook with a hammer at the marked point on the wall
Carefully stick the hook into the spot on the wall that you marked with the pencil. Nail it at a slight angle to the vertical of the wall so that it can support most of the weight of the canvas.
Third step: fix the support to the back of the canvas
Place the support on the back of the canvas, on top or on the side, wherever you prefer. Screw the mount to the canvas with the screwdriver.
Fourth step: hang the painting or canvas
Take a few steps back. Are you right? Straighten it if necessary. If you have a spirit level handy, use it to do a check. Hang it on the hooks and you have your picture ready on the wall. Here you go for the best metal print company.

Frequently asked questions about our canvases
Can a canvas be framed?
No, they are designed to be perfect just the way they are. But in case you are interested, our popular line of American Canvases comes prepared with its own satin wood frame.
Can a canvas be hung without this kit?
Yes. You can directly drive a nail into the wall with a hammer and hang the canvas. But it will be much more secure and you will be less likely to have to straighten it every few minutes if you hang it with our kit.
Can a canvas be hung in the bathroom?
It is not a good idea to hang a canvas where there is humidity (places like the bathroom or kitchen) or where it will get direct sunlight. Bottom line: they’ll go bad sooner. To keep your photo canvases looking great, wipe them down with a soft, dry cloth. For those of you who don’t want to hassle with a canvas hanging kit, we also offer a custom 20x20cm table canvas.
