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.

Dependable time and time again
from Durango, CO
Comments about Blick Premier Museum 2-3/8" Profile Cotton Canvas:
You can't beat Blick on the purchase I recently made from them: 3 5x6 foot framed canvases. More importantly Blick has been my go-to supplier for over ten years. Now I don't even bother thinking of anyone else; some can do as well, but none better.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great products that arrive speedily and well packaged for protection
By Nicholas Conlon
I am very happy with this purchase, I wish I would have got more... I instead decided to go with the splined ones which may or may not have been cheaper but they are cheap...they are on back order... 40 x 40" I got 6 of those coming as they were inexpensive in bulk but I should have just got 6 more of the back stapled ones I got now. This review is about those. They are incredible. I should have just got 6 more of these. Bottom line. Repeat...
This is a great canvas for thick applications. It has a rough surface that works well for applying texture. They are well made.

Lots of texture added.
large square stretched canvas
from Durham, NC
one word: awesome! It was on sale (cheaper than if I had built frame and stretched plus primed it myself) and was here in 2 days.
Beautiful, sturdy vanvas
By Painter Betsy
from Rochester, NY
The is my first try at painting on a large canvas. I ordered 4 each of 24 x 36 and 36 x 48 for my friend and me. We are enrolled in an online landscape class and wanted to try the large size. I was very impressed with how sturdy and heavy the canvases are. The back and corners are done perfectly. It is certainly a savings to not have to purchase frames. These will look beautiful without them. Te boxes were packed with such care, so no damage at all in the shipping process. Because of the large size, I paid $3 extra for handling. This was well worth the money because they were packed with such care. Will be painting on them soon, can't wait!
I would choose these again and again .
from Spring Lake NJ
After having used various brands of stretched canvas that warped and was not properly squared, this canvas is great. It is sent well packaged, beautiful tooth and surface and the frames are perfect . I have had bought other canvas brands that are sometime unacceptable to paint on. The price point for these is well worth it, my "go to" brand .
