Blick Standard Stretcher Bar

MP Code #MP-07227-001   
New name, same great quality! Formerly known as Utrecht Standard Stretcher Bars, Blick Standard Stretchers are made using the same materials and fabrication methods that made the Utrecht bars an artists' favorite. Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed.

These 1.5" W x 3/4" H standard stretcher strips are made exclusively from kiln-dried Brazilian White Pine. They are designed so tha the canvas is always one half inch from the strip to eliminate "ghost" impressions. The rounded back edges reduce surface friction and allow for a tighter draw of the fabric and a more even painting surface.

All corners are slotted and double-mortised and all sizes are interchangeable. Available in single strips or economical carton units.

    I have never stretched canvas or even knew what stretcher bars were until I have been searching for them everywhere for the past 6 months. Bought 28 bars for an amazing price and did it myself, these bars made everything so easy to do. Did it myself for less than $80 instead of paying my local michaels store $300+. Very impressed with this product. Shipping time wasn't too bad either. Shipped when it said it would.

    I am a professional photographer who produces his own gallery wrap canvases. I have found these stretchers to have no ghosting and the most recent ones accept staples well., ( I occasionally had a problem over a 1-1/2 year ago getting staples in). Maybe a change of wood. I have been using them for years and i am happy with the results!

    I'm mostly a portrait artist. These stretchers are consistently straight, strong and high quality. Even on the standard weight strips the lip holds the canvas well away from the stretcher so you NEVER get a "ghost" in the paint around the perimeter. Utrecht also lets you order by the strip so you can order according to your needs and not have to buy in big lots like with other art supply catalogs. Do yourself a real favor and try some of these. You'll never use anything else again.
