Welcome to dickblick
Whether you're a professional painter shipping work to a gallery or a hobbyist sending paintings to family and friends, Genie Canvas Collapsible Canvases make it a breeze to get full-size paintings from one place to another.
Everything you need comes inside a reusable mailing tube — a blank canvas, a collapsible frame, a pre-made hanging wire with D-rings and screws, plus all the padding and packaging supplies you need. Simply assemble and paint the canvas, then pack and ship it to your recipient, who reassembles the painting on arrival. Genie Canvases assemble easily in less than five minutes, using no tools.
The substantial 10 oz, 100% cotton canvas is pre-primed with gesso to reach a 13 oz finished weight, so it's ready to paint right out of the box. Stretcher bars are made of 1" (25 mm), 18-ply Baltic birch plywood — fantastically strong, stable, and resistant to humidity in comparison to solid wood stretchers.
Genie Canvas offers an enjoyable, foolproof process from start to finish, and shipping is usually less than $30 to any location in the contiguous 48 states via US Postal Service Parcel Post.
All tubes are 6" in diameter.
™ Genie Canvas is a trademark.

Comments about Genie Canvas Collapsible Canvas:
I purchased the 36x36 Genie Canvas for a commission. I watched the short YouTube video while putting it together, it was very easy. I was impressed by the quality of the support bars, velcro, and canvas which was thick and sturdy. This piece had to travel as checked-in luggage from the Midwest via 2 flight to the Bahamas. I was worried about how well this would hold up but it did, just perfectly. I will say these are a bit more expensive than a store bought, ready stretched canvas BUT the quality is better overall and for the ease and peace of mind of shipping or transportation they are worth every penny!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

TOTALLY SATISFIED ARTIST & CLIENT!
By LBI painter
I used the Genie Canvas for a 48 x 60" commission that had to be shipped to the Cayman Islands...when I found it on the site, saw the video...thought I'd take a chance. In 5 minutes was out of the packing tube and on my easel. Commission finished, repacked it up in tube and clients actually took it on the place with them and had no problems re-stretching it.I applaud you for this creative and ingenious canvas!

I have used a total of 3 of these canvases for large paintings and have not been disappointed. The construction and durability are awesome. Don't hesitate - go big!
I ordered the 60 x 72 for a large commission that I was going to have to transport. The canvas was easy to assemble and my client was able to reassemble and hang without any issues. The is an awesome product.A

I just unpacked & began using my Genie canvas today. Very high quality product, was also a breeze to unpack & assemble. The canvas is heavy duty, the bars are well made & stable. Everything was packed perfectly organized, the directions were simple although I watched a short you tube video while putting it together. This canvas may cost a bit more money than what you find on sale at your local art store but keep in mind this canvas was designed for easy shipping. For for both cost and peace of mind when shipping artwork, I feel Genie Canvas is a good buy.
Fast shipping with best Canvas supplied Will do more busines

THE Best Oversized canvas on the market!
By MADART Studios
"When I first heard about "Big Daddy Canvas" in the conception stage I couldn't believe what I was hearing?! An enormous single stretched canvas that I can paint on AND ship to my customer without the need for professional stretching?! It seemed too good to be true, but this new patent pending design is something I could only have dreamed of before and lives up to every expectation I had, and then some. Now I am finally able to offer enormous canvases to my clients without the added exorbitant expense of stretching or shipping such a huge painting; they can open up their package with a completed painting and within minutes have a huge original painting with gallery wrapped sides hanging on their wall. I'm a customer for life!!" – MADART ~ Megan Aroon Duncanson

Love these collapsible canvases
from Monument, CO
These canvases are simply the only way to send clients very large artwork. Usually the cost to send paintings that are over 3 or 4 feet wide is too high for the client, and they end up not purchasing because of the cost of shipping. Not so with these, they are manufactured to easily be shipped rolled in the tube they come in, and the customer can reassemble them in a few minutes with no tools. Easy and effective. The canvas is top quality, and the wood frame is also top quality. They also have a nice hinged crossbar, and a hanging hook and lots of protective padding. Lots of care and attention goes into these, and it shows!

I have made my living selling my acrylic paintings online since 2004. I love to paint BiG, but shipping is so expensive, that I've limited my work to smaller pieces and triptychs, so I was really thrilled to see this product come along!I have purchased several of these canvases and I LOVE THEM!! They assemble easily (5 minutes - no tools!) and the canvas is really TIGHT. I mention these things because these were some of my concerns at first. Also, the canvas is heavy and strong. And I REALLY love the reusable packaging. I was also concerned my customers would have difficulty assembling them, but that hasn't been a problem at all.Great product!!
