We custom build each stretcher bar, traditional art panel, strainer or frame you order, paying great attention to detail and craftsmanship in all that we do. We've been doing this for half a century. Not just old school, but old world quality is evident in our hand built fine art supports. Currently our turn around time is 3 to 4 weeks. We are beginning to stock standard sizes of our most popular products, so bear with us during this period of transition. Place your order early, in advance of your deadlines especially if you need custom sizes.

50 years in business!

Items we have in stock such as paints and mediums, canvas pliers and rolls of fine art fabric are available for immediate shipment, often the same day you place your order. We are also making a new line of lower cost, pre-primed Paint Panels that we have available for quick shipment.

Packaging & Handling

Most of our products are fragile and or bulky, so we include re-usable foam lined shipping boxes where appropriate- you have the option to select this on product pages.

Local Deliveries

  John tells it like it is...

Delivery within most of northern California using our truck and driver does not require the construction of shipping boxes which can save you a fair bit of money- call us for details. Deliveries for orders totalling less than $2,500 run $75 to $125 depending upon distance,  available in northern California only. Orders above $2,500 qualify for free delivery. You can select this option at check-out.

PAY NO TAX: If you are a California art professional and have a resellers permit, we can omit sales taxes from your order. Below is a link to a fillable PDF California reseller's permit. We would need this information on file to offer this tax exemption. Click: RESALE CARD
