Intended for the most demanding professional, Blick Premier Heavyweight Cotton Canvas is more stable and durable than lighter-weight canvas, so it stands up well to heavier paint applications.
We make these canvases using top-grade, archival-quality 100% cotton that's triple-primed with acid-free acrylic gesso to reach a hefty 20 oz finished weight. The canvas is then hand-stretched and back-stapled onto heavy-duty, kiln-dried stretcher bars made from solid North American pine — stable, substantial, and guaranteed not to warp or twist. Blanket-fold corners assure ease of re-stretching.
The 1-3/8" profile frame is constructed with tenon corners for added strength, and eight keys are included for minor adjustments to the frame over time. Cross-bracing on the larger sizes provides extra stability under tension.

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 Heavyweight 1-3/8" Profile Cotton Canvas:
I'm looking for larger size of canvases than available at retail store, so ordered via online depending on Blick's store staff's suggestion. They have a good deal at online, and it arrived sooner than I expected. Deliverer helped me for bringing in those big canvases to my studio. I was able to started to paint after a few minutes.
