Stretcher Bar Frames for Canvas
We offer a wide selection of preassembled solid wood stretcher frames that are ready for canvas prints.
Unlike traditional stretcher bars, our stretcher frames are ready made and pre squared. They are composed
of high quality wood strainer stock hand glued and nailed before shipping. The stock is finger-jointed farmed plantation pine (and so is a renewable product), grown in the United States and South America.
Our stretcher frames save time and are hassle-free. Unlike tongue and groove stretcher bars that might
collapse, our stretcher frames stay square when you stretch the canvas over them. We offer over sixty
frame sizes, or you can create a custom size in the pull-down menu. Our smaller profile stretcher strips
are ideal for canvas that will be framed in a traditional wood picture frame. Our taller stretcher
strips are ideal for gallery wraps.
Stretcher frames are hand-assembled by our staff.

RISER is the amount of distance between the top edge of the stretcher bar and broad flat
top of the stretcher bar. It determines how much distance you will have between the canvas and the
top face of the stretcher bar. If the canvas is not tight it may sag and come into contact with the
top of the bar causing a line to appear in the canvas.
Stretcher bar frames S110, S120 and S130 are narrow enough to be placed inside a traditional
picture frame if the frame’s rabbet is deep enough. The other stretcher frames are meant to be hung
as stand-alone gallery wraps or placed inside of a floater frame.
