Stretcher bars

Regular price $ 26.00

If you're purchasing our canvas upgrade for 16 x 24" or 24 x 36" prints, you may want to consider getting stretcher bars. These let you create your own wooden frame for mounting the canvas in a professional style.

When mounting, you'll need some spare canvas to wrap around the stretcher bars. We'll therefore shrink the artwork slightly, to provide a 2" white border around the edges. When you buy stretcher bars we'll do this automatically - unless you tell us otherwise.  

  • 16 x 24" size canvas will fit a 14 x 20" frame
  • 24 x 36" size canvas will fit a 20 x 30" frame

We'll be sure to supply the right size stretcher bars for your order. But please contact us if you have any questions.

More information

Our stretcher bars are 38mm wide x 22mm thick. Easy to assemble by hand, they require no special tools or expertise, other than strong hands and a good stapler. The bars are made from kiln dried timber which is carefully selected to eliminate knots, and have a bevelled edge, meaning that the stretched canvas will not show an imprint of the bars. These bars are "dead straight" and not subject to warping, and will lie 100% flat against the wall.
