1-1/2″ Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvases

Unlike economy-grade stretched canvases found  in art supply stores, Upper Canada Stretchers “Gallery Wrapped” Stretched Canvases are a premium, professional-quality product. Using our 1-1/2″ (38mm)-thick GALLERY stretcher bars with 1/2″ x 3″ bracing where necessary, these frames are fully keyable, allowing the canvas to be properly stretched and adjusted over time to keep the ideal tension. The back-stapled #12 cotton duck canvas (approx. 17 oz/sq yd after priming) has a tighter weave and higher thread count than economy-grade canvases and is  double-primed with professional quality acrylic gesso to provide an excellent starting point for your paintings.

1-1/2″ Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvases can be ordered in both imperial and metric sizing in any dimension from 6-36″/16-92cm (accurate to 1/16” or 1mm) using the custom calculator below – recommended bracing will be calculated automatically but can be increased if you wish. For larger sizes, please contact us  or fill out our quote form.
