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

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.
Great Price good quality
Normally I purchase the regular stretchers, or the heavy duty stretches if I have a gallery show. This time I decided to try the medium duty since the profile was still almost as deep as the heavy duty stretchers. They look great! Very sturdy. The only issue I had was the groves were tight so it look a little extra elbow grease to assemble. Would purchase again.

Medium stretcher bars warped
from Durham NC
The professional who was re-stretching my canvas was unable to use 5 out of six as they were warped. I would like my $ back..
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
