Welcome to dickblick
Blick Premier Cotton Canvas represents our highest standards of quality and excellence. Every canvas is made by hand to our precise specifications to ensure a superior painting experience for the artist — as well as maximum archival stability and durability.
From the hand-woven, top-grade fabric to the meticulous priming and stretching by hand, supreme care and craftsmanship are taken with every step of their fabrication. We invite you to compare Blick Premier Cotton Canvas to the world's leading brands, and we think you'll agree the only difference between ours and theirs is the affordable price.
Blick Premier Cotton Canvas is:
How is the canvas made? First, the cotton duck is grown and woven in India. Then the canvas is coated with three layers of professional-grade, acid-free gesso. It’s carefully sanded between primer coats for a smooth, luxurious surface with just the right tooth.
Finally, the primed fabric is evenly stretched around Blick Premier solid wood stretcher bars, which are kiln-dried for warp-resistance and long-term stability.
Larger canvas sizes are braced for extra support. Cross brace configurations may vary by size and style.
Back-Stapled Cotton Canvas
Gallery-wrapped and back-stapled with uncut corners and generous selvage, allowing for future re-stretching if desired. Keys are included for tension adjustments over time.
Splined Cotton Canvas
Hand-splined on the back with minimal staples and no bulky corner folds. A rubber gasket holds the fabric neatly in place. Splined canvases hang tight to the wall and are often preferred by artists who display their work unframed.
Oversize Canvas Shipping — Canvas larger than 30" × 40" does not qualify for our free shipping offer. For actual shipping charges call 800-447-8192.
Stretched Canvas Care — Because they are made of natural materials, changes in temperature and humidity may cause stretched canvases to shift or adjust over time. To enhance stability, store them vertically in a climate-controlled space.

Comments about Blick Premier Museum 2-3/8" Profile Cotton Canvas:
I needed some canvases for a "fast-and-dirty" project with a large quantity and these little pre-stretched canvases are really great. Even though they are inexpensive they are more professional looking than my own canvases. I liked the Professional grade with the museum profile.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Can't beat the price!
These canvases are well-made in terms of support and reinforcement in the frame and brackets. For my needs, no use in spending a whole lot more for only a slightly better surface. I love that these canvases come in so many different sizes!!
Quality canvas at a good price
from Hamilton, VA
I am very pleased with these canvases. They are framed well and the finish is nice to paint on. So far, I have not had any issues with warping. I think the frames are sturdy enough it should not be a problem. I like the gesso finish--it is not too smooth. It has just enough tooth that it holds the paint nicely.
I've used these for many years - consistently excellent!
from Long Beach, MS
Super price, packaging, and delivery!

Local stores twice the price.
Blick Premier Splined Gallery Profile is PERFECT
from East Moline, IL
I have been using Blick's premier splined gallery profile canvas for years. It's a great value! This durable, sturdy canvas that is a total value-add to my commissioned paintings.
Great value and perfect for teaching!
from Tupelo, MS
Blick offers great products at reasonable prices and swift delivery. All the things necessary to keep my business in business! The only thing that could make this product better is if there were a greater discount for bulk purchases.
Large Canvas, shipped intact in no time
By Shwe - Paintry at Etsy
I purchased a large canvas, that was wrapped so neatly and as compact as it could be (I hate senseless oversized packages for no reason) and the shipping was also faster than I expected it would be. There was no easier way for me to have had a long canvas reach me when I needed it! Thank you Blick!
Would only buy this product again if able to inspect first
By Artist Lisa
from Kalamazoo, MI
I purchased three canvasses with the intention of using them for a professional commission. I was not intending to frame the painting. The canvas arrived and I was pleased to see that it was heavy enough, not a cheap weight of canvas and the stretchers were solidly built. Unfortunately, I had to return the first shipment due to dings on the surface of the stretcher bars which did not allow the stretched canvas to lie smoothly. I also found dented surfaces and badly executed folds. I called and spoke to the excellent customer service rep, she kindly arranged for a swap. Second shipment arrived extremely well packed but in the same shape. This product needs to be sold in stores so artists can inspect the product prior to purchasing.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Very nice! Wow
from New York
I was online searching for the perfect stretched canvas for the best value and came across Dickblick! I am so impressed with the quality and value...even the shipping was so affordable for me. I was looking for the most professional product to be able to use for the most high end galleries in the country and I have found the perfect company. Thank you so much, and this is actually my first time going online to review a product. I just found the product something to rae about!
