Blick Standard Stretcher Bars are made from Brazilian white pine, with slotted, double-mortised corners that provide excellent long-term stability. Backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee, they're an outstanding value for the money.
Measuring 1-1/2" wide × 13/16" deep (38 mm × 21 mm) thick, they're designed with a 1/2" relief to eliminate ghost impressions on your stretched canvas. The rounded edges reduce surface friction and allow for a tighter, more even draw.

A few challenges with some of the stretcher bars that don't want to take a staple... just move over an inch and it usually will take it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I ordered 16 stretcher bars of various sizes — 3 were bowed enough to be useless, requiring me to order replacements. The rest were perfect and seem sturdy now that they've got canvas stretched over them. Advice for BLICK: 3/4" stretcher bars need matching cross-braces above a certain size, but oddly, they're not sold on your site. Seems like you'd want to have these available.Advice for other customers: the BLICK labels on each bar are heat-activated; just run a hair-dryer or heat-gun over them for a second and use a blade to peel them off. Super easy.
Great Stretcher Bars
from Panama City FL
I've been stretching canvas for years and always used an competitive price vendor. This took a bit of a toll due to poor manufacture standards and just adequate materials, I thought in the long run I was saving money? I like to buy bulk but changes in manufacturing varied leaving me with wood that often did not match!. I'm now using Blick for these units and the quality is very high and manufacture much more precise. I spend a few cents. I'll never go back to another company!
Good value when you buy in bulk.
from North Carolina
The design of these bars keeps the canvas away from the insides of the stretchers. They are excellent for paintings 18 by 20 inches and smaller.
These stretcher bars are tip-top, very snug fitting, and nicely priced.

Good products to use when you need it.
Great for price
from Harrisonburg, VA
These stretchers are good quality considering the price. I appreciate the bulk pricing as I use these to make a lot of canvas prints or when I need an odd shaped canvas. Occasionally I receive a couple of warped bars. I also sometimes get a bar that is really soft, where the staples go so far in that they punch a hole clean through the canvas, and sometimes I get a bar that is so hard I can't get staples to go in all the way. This doesn't happen that frequently, I'd say only 1 or 2 bars per 24 are messed up. Definitely still worth the buy for me.
My go to
I frequently showcase my paintings and require having a large inventory on hand. These stretcher bars are the best, not only in quality but in price. It's an amazing value to get a dependable, sturdy product.
Exactly what I wanted. I love that every size was available.
