Stretch a Canvas
Stretching a canvas is pretty straightforward when you know how - watch our video to learn more.
Stretcher Bars are supplied in pairs. They slot together to form a frame - bars over 762mm/30” are slotted to allow you to add a brace bar, and brace bars over 762mm/30” are notched to cross, so you can brace both dimensions.
Stretcher Bars are supplied with wedges to tap into the corners - if the canvas starts to sag, tapping them in a little further will make it taught again.
Tip: Printed canvases can be finished with a varnish or texturing gel.
You can buy stretcher bars in 3m lengths or order them cut to size on Chop Service, to join yourself.
Tip: A Staple Remover is very handy when trying to get the optimum tension on a canvas.
