Great value and a good price
By Leonardo of the Rockies
I use these to stretch printed art on canvas for additional hand work in acrylic or oil. They are sturdy and easy to assemble. My order arrived on time and intact from Blick.
I would Buy this product again
This worked great for the Project I was doing. fast delivery.
Just what we needed
Could never get these consistently locally. Fifty was more than I need, but it is a good feeling to know I will have them on hand when I need them. Seamless transaction and delivery.

They're Good, But Wish Blick's Would Improve This Product
I've been buying Blick's stretcher bars for decades, and they are good stretcher bars at a good price. But I wish Blick's would improve them. In all the decades that I've stretched my own canvases, I would say NEVER (out of hundreds) did the finished rectangle achieve right angles at all the corners: NEVER!... always one side will be at a different angle, slightly off: SO IT FRUSTRATING! I am not suggesting that there is anything wrong with this product.. .it's just the nature of using stretcher bars… but I wonder if Blick's could IMPROVE these, to include some line, dent, or mark on each end of the stretcher bars, so that when they are aligned, a (close to) right angle would be achieved. It would be a great improvement!!
Best value strips
from Everett, WA
These are pretty comparable to the old "Blick precision cut stretcher strips" maybe even identical, but at an even better cost (if you can afford the upfront cost of buying 50). I have been using the Blick precision ones for years and these have made a great cheaper replacement.
Fine for smaller sizes
These are light duty but at a great price. If you go over 30" you will want some sort of brace or corner reinforcement.
Wish these came with keys
from Chicago, IL
These were fairly affordable and sturdy, however, I really wished they came with the keys to titen after you strech/gesso the canvas on them. I am getting lines around the rims of where the strecher edge is from the canvas loosening up.
Merchant response: Thank you for your review! We'll be happy to send keys out to you – just ask! Someone from our Customer Care Center will be emailing you to help you with this.
