Custom Size/Shaped Stretched Canvases

If you are an artist who  prefers not to do the work of stretching and preparing the canvas yourself, let us do it for you.  We can make any size, shape and number of blank canvases you want and will stretch and prepare them to your specifications. All you’ll have to do is paint!

We stock a variety of stretcher frame profiles ranging from 3/4″ to 3″ thick or we can create any custom depth that you wish. Are you looking for a shaped canvas: round, oval, arched, or a custom design that your imagination conceived?  We can make any shape or thickness you need and stretch it for you with cotton or linen, primed or unprimed, in multiple different weights and qualities.

We also make gravity bars to hang our custom canvases, which make it easy for you to install the painting in your studio or gallery.

We ship all custom canvases in well-protected carton containers. For large orders, the carton would be mounted on a pallet for handling with a forklift. Our turnaround time for making custom canvases ranges from a few days to a few weeks depending on the size of the order and how busy we are.

Take a look at our photo gallery below to see some of the custom canvases we have made in the past few years. For further information on custom canvases, call us at 1-800-561-4944 or email us now!

Top: To prevent keys from falling out during transportation we “spot-weld” the keys to the frame with a drop of wood glue. This glue will break off if the keys are tapped with a hammer should further keying-out be required.
