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.
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.

Comments about Blick Premier Museum 2-3/8" Profile Cotton Canvas:
It has a nice thickness and I love the way the backs are down to hid any excess canvas. You also don't have worry about a piece being folded up or laying wrong.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I would buy this item again.
I've used Blick Premier canvas lots of times previous to this and they have always been a very good quality but this last one had loose canvas threads that had been gessoed onto the face of the canvas. When I finally got them dislodged there was a ridge left behind which I tried to sand down but unfortunately it still showed. I didn't have time to wait on a new canvas to arrive as it was a commission.
Well crafted canvasses

Why do stretch your own, when it can be done for you?
By The Wave Lady
I bought several of the smaller canvases for an acrylic series. I loved the price and was happy to find that they were solid, quality canvases. There is a lot of tooth, but as I usually put several layers of paint down it doesn't affect my details. Will be buying more!

Love the gallery sides!

exactly what I wanted.
By Wilt the gripper
from Orlando, Florida
The canvas are well made and mounted and taught. They are priced right also. The only gripe is a small one and that is another coat of gesso would help reduce the amount of tooth on the canvas. I have to sand and apply a coat of gesso to smooth out the surface so small details can be painted on the canvases.
