Canvas stretcher bars or stretcher bars for your canvas are constructed in the form of a wooden frame. These are used by artists that wish to mount their canvases. Traditionally, these are in the form of a wooden framework support on which you can fasten your canvas. These are also used in places that want their embroidery to be mounted so that a steady tension is provided prior to sewing. The use of canvas stretcher bars has boomed in recent times since inkjet printed canvas prints or giclee on canvas have gained in popularity. There are several warehouses in the market that market different styles of these stretcher bars including the really heavy duty stretcher bars that large canvases have a need for.

Many photographers use stretcher bars for mounting wedding photographs as well as photographic prints. One can use these bars if you want to frame sports shirts and the like or in theatrical productions when one may frame material backdrops. A photographer’s digitally transferred picture on a canvas is stretched over the stretcher frame. Once the canvas is wrapped around the frame, which is also known as gallery wrap, you can hang the picture that is already framed on the wall. The quality of canvas stretcher bars should have rounded profiles so that firstly the framer can see as well as obtain very clear edges and secondly prevent canvas cracking when it snaps over a sharp edge. Good warehouses use well dried Nordic pine wood and also advise strengthening stretcher bars by the use of a cross brace that has been inserted. This way the wood does not warp and will hang flat.

You will find different styles in stretcher bars. Some of the better warehouses start with the Medium (Standard) Duty bars that are used by most of the artists. These come in ¾”depth and 1 5/8” width sizes. The light duty bars are the economical stretcher bars that do not hurt your pocket. These are available in 5/8” depth and 1 3/16” width sizes. The heavy duty stretcher bars have different styles. The lightest among these are the Medium/Heavy Duty or Goldilocks. These have a size 1 3/16” in depth and width. The Heavy Duty/Midi will save you quite a lot of money and these come in sizes 1 ½ “ depth and width. The Super Heavy Duty Stretcher bars are the big daddies and these are excellent if you have a huge canvas. The size of these bars is 1 ½ “depth and 2” in width.
