I can make almost any size of canvas you want, made-to measure from 40cm up to 800cm.
Due to some supply issues we are currently suspending this bespoke service. Will update when things return to normal. Thanks, Ed.
Facilities and materials
My facilities and manpower can cope with any size and shape. I have a choice of cloths available for the painted surface although I usually recommend my own 375gsm coarse-weave, double-primed man-made polyester for most types of paints and subject matter.
The new non-linen canvases are superb so don’t be put off by them. The quality of them is incredible.
The stretcher bars I use are sustainable European softwoods with an ultra-low moisture content (minimizing warping) made from a 44mm square profile. As they are floating frames they have corner wedges used for tensioning – ensuring an even canvas tightness.
These specifications are exactly the same as all my own original paintings so I’m giving you a quality to match my own.
My stretcher bars start at 40cm and rise in 10cm increments up to 200cm. Over this they rise in 25cm steps (i.e. 225/250/275cm)
Premium quality components
All canvases come pre-primed so there is no need to use Gesso or any preparatory surface treatments – just open your paints and start painting. All my canvases are suitable for acrylic, oil and solvent-based paints. All staples are fixed to the reverse so the edges are perfect and the corners are folded in the traditional gallery style.
48 hour service*
Need a canvas quickly? No problem. All canvases can be made and be ready for collection within 48hours*. There’s no minimum order either. Canvases over 300cm on any side will need seven to ten days to make as they require a set of special alloy support channels to be fabricated.
Collection directly from my studios in Gloucestershire
Due to the quality and nature of my hand-made canvases I refuse to send them with a courier company. You’ll therefore need to organize your own collection. If you struggle to arrange this you can try Anyvan.com and find a local service that will pick them up for you. They will be individually wrapped in anti-static packing foam and taped accordingly.
*(except sizes over 300cm and round or unusual shapes – see below)
Round and unusual shapes
Almost any shape can be made into a canvas for painting. Circular ones will require a lead time of four weeks minimum as will any other specific shape.
This service is carried out by a company I highly recommend and are the people who make them for Damien Hirst so you can be assured of a quality like no other.
Please get in touch if you have a specific request for a non-standard shape.
