About Stretching Bars:

Most of the painters will admit the fact that painting on a canvas is a great medium to express their artistic talent. The canvas can be flawlessly stretched with the help of stretching bars. In the recent years, a number of companies have emerged with different models of stretcher bars. A rectangular base frame is assembled by arranging the canvas over the bars and tightened with the help of clamps. The canvas is stretched properly to create a smooth and crease-free surface.

The stretching bars are available in different materials such as wood, metal or alloys. Mostly, artists prefer wood because of its accuracy and smooth finish. Advanced tools and techniques are used to manufacture these wooden bars to ensure perfect fit. Pine wood is considered quite appropriate for this purpose.

Due to the availability of online stores, now, it has become very easy to find the perfect stretching bars. You can visit the stores to evaluate their specifications and deals. You may order your selected stretcher bars with just a press of a button. These online stores also ensure the packaging and proper delivery of your product and sometimes, may even provide on-site assembling.

Different Types of Stretcher Bars:

A good canvas stretcher is a combination of comfort, proper shape and balanced edges.

There are different types of stretcher bars available in the market such as:

Medium duty stretcher bars- These are the standard stretcher bars with raised and rounded edges which significantly reduce the friction of the canvas stretcher

Light duty stretcher bars- These are perfect for small paintings and specifically designed for tight budget

Goldilocks medium/Heavy duty stretcher bars- This is an expensive option and used particularly by those who require a substantial side profile for their valuable artwork

Strong heavy duty Midi bars- It offers you an exceptional quality at very reasonable cost

Super heavy duty bars- These are known for their impressive mass as well as strength

A canvas stretcher composed of the right selection of stretcher bars will ensure an even printing surface for a perfect painting experience.
