Ohio Artist Tim Lancaster's Heavy Duty Stretcher Bars Experience

July 10, 2018

Ohio artist Tim Lancaster wrote in to share his experience with our heavy duty stretcher bars, as well as the results of his framers stress-testing an 85″ bar. He shared this excellent piece of work on a 60 x 60″ UCSArt.com canvas stretcher, as well.

“I’m writing to say a quick thank you to all involved with the production and delivery of these very fine stretchers. When my work at last became truly marketable, I researched for a high-quality supplier to build stretchers for me and I feel you have been the best I could have hoped for.

The framers who stretch my canvases were telling me how well built your stretchers are and how impressive the whole concept is. They tested one of the 85-inch stretcher bars after being exposed to lots of humidity and heat it varied from end to end less than a 1/4 inch. They felt that was utterly amazing. Thank you. I look forward to our mutual successes!”
