a diverse fine arts company


Our standard HOLDcanvas is built with sustainably harvested kiln dried fir, wrapped with premium quality cotton duck canvas #12 (11.45 oz - regular cotton) or 10 oz (organic cotton), primed with one coat of acrylic gesso (a great ground for both oil and acrylic paints) and is 1.75” thick.

The stretcher bars consist of two separate pieces of kiln dried fir, glued and nailed together, creating an “L” shape with a 20 degree beveled edge to keep your painting off of the stretcher with a nice bounce. Our innovative stretcher design with our forever lock corner system insures that your canvas will remain tight and true, and always come with appropriate bracing.

HOLDstudios offers standard sizes (see prices below), and we specialize in custom sizes and construction. If you have a system that you prefer, we will happily build your canvas to your specifications and satisfaction. Contact us today for a quote.
