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.

A Superior Product
By Peter the Painter

Comments about Blick Premier Museum 2-3/8" Profile Cotton Canvas:
These premier back-stapled 1-1/2 inch pre stretched canvases were a very pleasing purchase. Tightly stretched, well squared and solidly built; sadly, I have come to expect a lot less bang for my buck. This renews my faith in pre stretched canvases! I usually supplement with a couple of extra coats of gesso because I like a smooth fast surface, and frequently need to soak the back of the canvas with Tight'n Up, too. These could have sufficed without the extra gesso, but I opted to add anyway. I definitely was able to forgo the Tight'n Up. I look forward to painting on these!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent quality, especially for the price
By Alaskan Artist
from Juneau Alaska
I'm a pretty prolific painter and I love these canvases. I tried to buy canvas from Joanne Fabrics, as we have one in my town and I didn't have to pay shipping, but the quality of even their "archival" top of the line canvases were much lower than these premiere canvases. I get consistently good results with these, very few imperfections in the canvas, a nice tooth (but not too toothy) and good stiffness. My only complaint is that every now and again I get one that won't fit into one of the Blick wood gallery frames...but I'm not sure if that's the fault of the canvas or the frame, and it doesn't happen that often.
good quality for the price
I am a beginner and these splined canvases are a good deal considering the quantity discount and the free shipping after $49.
from Tucson AZ
Blick sent well packaged so arrived trouble free. Good canvas and no sagging which is really important on a large 30x40 piece.
Excellent canvas for the money
from Tryon, NC
I am very impressed with the quality of this canvas, and the price was right!
Very good product!
from Chevy Chase, MD
This product is very good. The supports are not too close to the back of the canvas like other similar products. They are sturdy and the gessoed surface is also very good. I will buy another set of 5 large ones soon! The person at Blick that I spoke to prior to purchase was friendly, professional and informative.
