Canvas Stretching

We stretch a canvas when we want to preserve it and prepare it before we frame it. We can stretch canvases that are painted or unpainted, and we can use different methods depending on how valuable the canvas is and what your specific needs are.

Why should you stretch a canvas?

Not every canvas needs to be stretched. Reasons for stretching a canvas include:

  • Unrolling a canvas so it can fit in a frame
  • Preserving a valuable canvas prior to framing
  • When you want a canvas delivered that’s ready to hang on your walls

If you aren’t sure whether or not your canvas needs to be stretched, stop in or give us a call. Our experienced professionals can help you determine the best course of action for your canvas. Please contact us with any questions at (212) 533-0808 or by email at
