Comments about Best Medium Duty Stretcher Bars:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.
I will be buying this product again.
The corners were snug which ensured a solid fit. I will be using this for future canvas stretching.

The Jack Richardson & Co, Inc stretcher bars carried by Blick are always true and straight and dependable to match others previously ordered so no bars are wasted because of mismatches. Their dependability saves me a two hour drive to Santa Fe to hand pick stretcher bars for paintings and photography.I have, from time to time, ordered stretcher bars from other companies because Blick does not carry a full range of sizes. I especially need 13" ones in the medium size for stretching photographic prints on canvas. I always regret it.
Easy to Assemble - Easy to Square
from Palm Springs CA
Really easy to assemble into a squared canvas. I've used others...these are definitely the best .

great product and quick shipping too!

Sometimes I think that these stretchers are engineered to make me a better painter!
I would but this product again
The time frame to get this product is great. I live in a rural area. Going to the art supply store requires me to back a lunch and drive an hour and hope the store has what I need.
First experience a winner
from salt lake city, ut
I have used the local store for a smaller canvas and was satisfied with the product. I was particularly pleased they had 63" bars. I didn't expect to find this 'odd' size. Packaging was better than I expected. Everything fit. I have two more large canvases to re-stretch. I will definitely use Blick online again.Note: I like the concept of not competing with the local store.
