Welcome to dickblick
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 pine. Blanket-fold corners assure ease of re-stretching.
The 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. Braces are 1-1/2" (37 mm) wide.
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.

Best quality for excellent price
from Middlebury CT
Comments about Blick Premier Heavyweight 1-3/8" Profile Cotton Canvas:
You can tell the quality by the hefty weight. Much more substantial compared to other brands. The only way to beat this quality is to build your own.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have used these for two paintings already and am very pleased. They construction is very solid, I didn't see any sort of problems with the canvas being mis-shapen. Paint adheres well, and looks fantastic once completed.I already need to purchase some more!
Bought multiple premium canvases.
from Atlanta, GA
Delivered in good shape, right away, free shipping and great price. Very nice canvases. Thank you!! I'll do this again.
Great Canvas at an Affordable Price
By Jess the painter
Very nice, heavy, solid canvas. I use these for most of my paintings, and am always happy with them.
Almost professional quality
It would be nice if this were a professional quality canvas, but it falls short.PROS-Heavy canvas-Sufficient gesso coating-Stapled not splined (though I think they are available splined, this complicates re-stretching)-Solid stretcher-KeyedCON-Canvas sags significantly. Keys inserted to maximum depth (even to point of poking into canvas on side) do not tighten adequately.You could bypass the sagging problem perhaps by hand selecting canvases at store, but my retail Blick store only stocks a few of these for each size, so if you wanted more you have to order online and deal with the hit or miss of the pickers at the warehouse.
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that the canvas you ordered was slack when you received it. Because canvas is a natural material, it can be affected by changes in ambient humidity and temperature at any time during shipment or even after you receive it. Although this can be corrected by keying, or may even correct itself given a less arid environment, we want you to be happy with the canvas you purchase from us. One of our Customer Care Agents will be reaching out via email to see how we can help.

I use these canvases for oil painting, and they are extremely well-constructed and sturdy. They have a weight to them which makes a painting seem more valuable somehow. I only wish that these canvases with their three coats of acrylic gesso priming were also sized before the priming.
from Fayetteville, AR
Pre-assembled and great for oil painting

don't bother buying
from San Francisco Bay Area
I took a chance on the 24: x 24" canvases and couldn't use any of them.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Ampersand cradled smooth board
These boards are perfect for the highly-textured acrylic work I do and the attractive wood cradle can easily be stained or painted. I buy these online- they come well packed, and I reuse the packing for storage and shipping. 0caasionly there is a small dent or chip (no bigger than 1/8" ) in the surface at an edge or corner, but I load so much thickened pigment on the surface that doesn't matter.

These canvases are very strong and built to last.
