Best Weight for small to medium canvas
from High Springs Fl
Stretching my own canvas is an important part of the creative process, for me. Blick Precision-Cut Stretcher Strips are the right weight, for most of my canvases, at a fantastic price, thanks Blick.

Blick Precision-Cut Stretcher Strips
from Davenport, IA
I was able to use these stretchers combined with sheet canvas to make 24" x 24" paintable canvases at a very inexpensive price. They were a great deal, and I am always looking at how I can stretch a dollar for art supplies.
from Morristown, NJ
The stretcher bars were packaged very nicely and arrived within a week of ordering in excellent condition, even though it was pouring at my place. I am pleased by the quality, and it's too bad the smaller sizes are all sold out. I'm starting some oil pieces, and it feels so nice to be able to stretch my own canvas. So far, the bars are sturdy, no warping, even for the linen canvas, and for this price point, it's a steal! They come with small wooden keys, nothing fancy, but it's nice to have in case the canvas slackens later on. Bars are made of solid wood, not pieced together, and have Blick engraved on one of the sides. Smells nice too!
Blick Precision cut Stretcher Strips
from Pollock Pines, California
These are top of the line stretcher bars, which will be fantastic to make two oversized fabric stretched panels to hide my very huge felt design wall when its not in use (This wall is one of the first things you see when you enter my front door, and a blank piece of felt really didn't add anything to my decor). They were easy to assemble and withstood the tension of tightly stretching decorator fabric over them to create the panels, which were still light enough to hand with simple push pins, which makes them very easy to bring down when I need to use the wall.
from peoria, IL
good delivery and condition
Good product, great price
from Philadelphia, pa
Sizes are accurate, the top edges don't always line up, but a quick touch up with a sanding block fixes it right up. It's wood, so some inaccuracies like this are to be expected
Not bad for the price
from Pendleton, SC
Great price, but I was a bit disappointed in them. A bit thinner than I thought. I prefer the standard or, for larger pieces, the heavy duty stretcher bars.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Shipping was super fast, the packaging was very secure and nothing was damaged in transit. The pieces all fit together perfectly and stretching the canvas was quick and easy. I will be ordering these again the next time I need make my own custom-sized canvas.
Nice quality stretcher bar
By HM Bennet
These stretcher bars are the best I've used at this thickness, they are sturdy and perfect for making smaller canvas sizes. I also love that they come in odd sizes because I needed to stretch a few paintings that did not measure out to even numbers and this was the only place I could find odd-sized stretchers. Also, this is the best price I've found on stretcher bars. Overall the best value out there, I will be using Blick to purchase all of my stretcher bars in the future!
