Vancouver’s Choice for Stretching Paintings and Canvas Prints
Our custom framers are skilled in the craft of stretching rolled paintings and canvas prints. Whether you’ve bought a painting on a recent trip or purchased a rolled canvas print online, we custom build each stretcher frame to fit your artwork.
Stretcher frames are built using premium-quality kiln-dried wood to ensure a strong and sturdy foundation. In addition, all of our canvas stretching is done by hand utilizing the same traditional method that has been employed by artists and artisans for hundreds of years. We are committed to providing gallery wraps fastened without the use of tapes, glues, or any otherchemicals, thus helping to preserve your artwork well into the future. The most popular stretcher bars have ¾ or 1-½ inch depths. Upon request, ½ inch and 2 inch depths are available.
We are happy to consult with our clients to advise on optimal stretcher bar depth and gallery wrap for each piece. Our store is conveniently located on the border of Vancouver and Burnaby. Stop by with your artwork to get started.
