Canvas Stretcher Bars for Strong Frames

By Editor123 Subscribe to RSS | June 27th 2012 | Views:

Canvas stretcher bars are needed to construct wooden stretcher bar frames used by artists and framers to mount canvases. These frames are traditionally the support artist uses to fasten the canvas. Sometimes, these frames are also used for embroidery work when they provide a steady tension before starting to sew. In this case, the edges of the fabric are affixed with the help of a staple gun or pins. A stretcher is, therefore, only a frame and it can be made in different ways.

The pre-fabricated stretchers are commercially available in the form of segments that have interlocking corners. There are different methods of adhering the corners on a stretcher such as the mitre joint and the butt joints. Today’s home print market has also made the use of stretcher bars very prominent especially since the inkjet canvas prints or giclees are now popular in homes. Several photographers use stretcher bars for framing a variety of photographs as well such as wedding photographs or photo reproductions.

Photographers use canvas stretcher bars for stretching their digitally transferred prints- on-canvases over the stretcher bar frames. This is known as gallery wrap since the photographer has to wrap the canvas around the frame before hanging the framed picture on the wall. The profiles on the bars need to be curved as this allows the canvas to go around rather than go over a sharp edge that may result in the cracking of the canvas. There are therefore several requirements that need to be met before stretcher bars are considered adequate for the task of being used for frames.

These bars must be strong but supple and should not warp or crack under stress especially while stretching. You need a reliable warehouse therefore that gives you quality, specifications and a good price. You also need different styles so that you can select the correct bars for the task you have in mind.

The reliable warehouses will have at least five different styles of canvas stretcher bars. Such a large selection gives you tremendous flexibility at the time of placing an order for your stretcher bar frames. These warehouses will not only give you high quality with super prices but also full box discounts. Their coast to coast shipping rates are tiered so that you get a fair deal. All the stretcher bars have terrific quality and the service is fast and friendly. You can order with full confidence since the line is secure and encrypted and above all you know you will be getting the best value for money.
