Welcome to dickblick
These high-quality stretcher bars are more than just a piece of wood!
Their rounded back edge reduces surface friction and is designed to keep the canvas ½" from the stretcher bar. This feature helps prevent ghost impressions on the canvas.
Best Medium-Duty Stretcher Bars are made from kiln-dried, knot-free, straight pine. Each strip measures 1¼" high × 1½" deep.
Note — Price is per strip, not per pair. These stretchers are only for use with each other and Best Medium-Duty Cross Braces. They will not interlock with other brands.
Note — Additional sizes are available through special order. For details, contact our Customer Service team at email@example.com or 800-828-4548.

I have used three different brands of stretcher bars, and these are absolutely the Best! The last canvases I stretched on a competitor's bars were made of too-soft wood, and the tabs that fit together at the corners were so soft they broke off on several assemblies. Also, the thinner (3/4") stretchers I used for smaller canvases warped very badly after assembly. These Best Medium stretcher bars are far beyond compare with anything else, they are heavier, solid, hard wood, straight as an arrow, fit together to give square corners, and appear to be made by real craftsmen. I love them.

These 1.25 inch deep stretcher bars are perfect for both gallery-wrap and/or framed canvases!

Solid Stretcher bar
By Nico G Silk Art
one of the best price for this product out there.
Watercolor paper solution
I am using this product to stretch and hold watercolor paper. The air flow to both sides of the paper allows foe greater control of the papers dampness throughout the painting process. The perfect solution to bucked paper and the lightweight frame is easily tilted and moved. I have not used other brand stretchers.
Great option for a larger canvas to give it more strength and stability, just as good as the heavy duty stretchers but not quite as big. Very solid feeling. Very happy with this option.
I would and do buy this product on a regular basis

Great stretcher bars
from Bloomington, IN
I really liked these medium weight stretcher bars. I used them to give to a 91 year old painter who can't lift heavy items. The heavy duty stretcher bars would have been too heavy for her. These mid weight ones worked just great and she loved the canvases I stretched for her using these stretcher bars.
