Very easy! We provide you with a tear-proof paper template that is the same size as your artwork with a complete set of instructions. It’s reusable so you can keep it and use it again if you ever decide to move your artwork to a different spot.
Simply position the template where you want your artwork to hang, tape it up with painter’s masking tape and use a 1/16” drill bit to drill a pilot hole for each standoff, according to the bullseyes we have printed on the template.
Once you’ve drilled the pilot holes, simply remove the template and attach the barrels of the standoffs to the fence with the supplied wood screws.
The artwork comes with the mounting holes pre-drilled so you only put the standoff screw caps through the holes in the artwork, screw them into the barrels and you’re done!
If you feel you need to clean your artwork, we recommend that you give it a light spraying with a garden hose to rinse it off. Use water only -- no cleaning products.
The print can scratch if care is not taken. Avoid using chemicals, solvents, detergents or anything that is abrasive on your artwork. If you wipe it, rinse it well first with a garden hose to remove any abrasive materials such as sand and dust. Then wipe very gently with a clean microfiber cloth and water. Leave it to air-dry.
We provide a hardware kit that includes the standoffs and wood screws that are required for installing the artwork on a wooden fence.
We have had customers install their artwork on brick, siding, concrete, drywall as well. These applications may require additional hardware that is readily available at hardware stores and home improvement centres.
Ensure you purchase a sufficient quantity of hardware to allow for one anchor/screw per standoff.
For installation on brick walls and concrete you use the standoffs but you do not use the supplied wood screws. You will need to purchase some additional hardware.
We recommend the use of a hammer drill with a ¼” masonry drill bit and the use of lead anchors intended for masonry.
These are widely available at hardware and home improvement stores.
The anchor size should be 6-8 x 1 ½”.
CAUTION: When using lead anchors in masonry it is important to not over-tighten the screws or they could break. Set the torque very low on your drill or driver when installing the screws and just make them snug.
Here is an example of a lead anchor that we have had success with. It is available at Canadian Tire and comes with its own screws:
We can provide other colours such as red, gold, and blue. These are custom orders and would require additional lead time and fees. We cannot, however, guarantee that any custom standoff colours will be lightfast and will not fade.
To survive outdoors all year ‘round in the Canadian climate, frames need to be durable enough to not warp, crack rot or rust, so wood and steel frames are out of the question.
They also need to be heavy enough to hold the artwork in place to prevent the artwork from blowing out of the frame in high winds.
Standoffs also have the advantage of being lightweight and they allow a fence to “breathe”. The airflow around the artwork eliminates any opportunity for moisture, insects and rot to set in behind the panel.
