Do I stretch canvases myself?

I’m afraid I don’t stretch the canvases myself. Although I have stretched a few of my canvases myself in the past, over time I have found it works better for me to send my canvases rolled up and for them to then be stretched (or framed) by a local picture framer. Some of the reasons for this include:

  • Cost. It is as cheap or cheaper, for the canvas to be stretched by a high street picture framer. Unfortunately I can’t stretch them any more cheaply than the high street picture framer can!
  • Experience. Like most things in life, it’s best to use a professional that is performing a task all the time. Professional picture framers are better at doing it than me.
  • Courier delivery. It’s very difficult and hence expensive to package up a very large canvas to travel safely through our courier network.
  • After sales care. It’s rare, but not impossible, that a stretched canvas can warp or bend over time. Wooden stretcher bars are used and humidity and temperature changes in a room can very occasionally cause the wood to bend and the canvas to end up mis-shapened. If this does happen, you can contact the local picture framer that stretched the canvas for advice. Having said that, this problem is very rare.
