    Hanging up wall decorations: walk-through

    Measuring the Picture and Wall

    Measure the picture and the wall. For this you will need a pencil, measuring stick or tape and a water level.


    Regardless of the height of the wall, the centre of your picture should lie at around 155 cm or two-thirds of the picture should be lower than your line of sight, with one-third over it.

    Whether you should use nails, screws or hooks depends on the structure and size of the wall decoration. Screws hold particularly large and heavy objects more securely than nails, which are generally more suited for smaller lighter pictures. Screws, for example, are better suited for hanging aluminium Dibonds and HD metal prints in larger formats. Smaller formats and lightweight materials such as photo canvas or wall displays, on the other hand, can be hung on your wall with nails.

    Attach wall decoration: Hanging the photo canvas

    The hangers for the Photo canvas and detailed instructions are supplied in a small bag. You will need a hammer for the wedges in each corner of the stretcher frame. Then simply attach the hangers directly to the real wood stretcher of the photo canvas.

    The great thing about the photo canvas: even in large formats, it is very light and will hold tight with the hangers and nails. For solid walls, there are even special concrete nails that you can use.


    Nails are best for hanging the canvas (so long as your wall permits it). Even in larger sizes, the canvas is relatively light. Special nails for concrete can be used for even the most robust of walls.

Use different formats or combine wall decorations made of different materials and create a great gallery on your wall! How about the "salon-style hang", for example, where your wall is covered to the ceiling with your best works?
