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.

Comments about Blick Premier Heavyweight 1-3/8" Profile Cotton Canvas:
Excellent, heavy-duty canvas stretched on a sturdy, well-built frame. Perfect for the thick, impasto abstract work that I do.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I will create a painting

Just like I usually get. No problems with quality.
Labels stuck to canvas, paper residue impossible to remove.
from Hagerstown, MD
I frequently purchase Blick's canvases and always satisfied with their quality. However, this time I tried their heavy duty line, and was deeply disappointed. It appears the paper labels may have been attached before the canvas primer had dried, resulting in paper residue stuck to the corners of the canvas. I tried scraping and sanding away, to no avail. I then tried to paint over it hoping it wouldnt be noticeable, but it is. As an oil painter, I'm also concerned the paper residue will likely eventually be eaten away by the oils. A total mess!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We apologize for the issue with the labels, and we'd like to help. Please look for an email from a member of our Customer Care Team who will be following up to assist you.

Bigger is Better!
from Colorado Springs Colorado
3 canvases 36 x 48 x 2 in heavy weight canvas and solid frame construction. A tremendous value. Ships Free with additional items you need anyway. Go ahead and get the 3....same $ as ordering one!
Fantastic value and quality
from New York
I love these canvases, I tend to purchase the thicker version of the two. They are very solid and the inclusion of the wooden keys helps tighten the canvas a little more which is great. These fit very tight in the wooden floater frames sold at Blick's but they look very good once set and attached.I will continue to purchase these in the future.

Best quality for excellent price
from Middlebury CT
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.

Love dick blick heavy duty
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!
