Upper Canada Stretchers holiday hours


When Upper Canada Stretchers crafted our first canvas stretcher in 2001, it was with a specific mission in mind: to provide artists, photographers, art supply stores and other arts professionals the best quality stretcher on the market.

Today, our clientele includes artists of every level of ability and professional status. Galleries, conservators, collectors, universities and discerning clients choose Upper Canada Stretchers for our innovative engineering, proven stretcher bar designs, and top quality materials and machining. We’re now shipping daily across North America and catering to professional artists with custom canvases of all shapes and sizes, up to 30 feet in diameter!

It is with our whole hearts and warmest thoughts that we extend a huge THANK YOU to our loyal customers this holiday season. We hope for all the best of the season to you and yours, and send our warmest wishes for a year of peace and happiness ahead.

Of course, we welcome you to peruse the UCSArt.com website as you enjoy a bit of downtime (and a cup of eggnog) over the holidays. You can explore our products here, or visit the Education section of the site to learn more about stretcher frame design features, the importance of keyable stretchers, and more.

Stay safe and enjoy your holidays, wherever you are! We look forward to continuing to serve you in the new year.
