Build Your Own Canvas at Jerry's Artarama

If you’ve looked into Houston custom framing before, you probably already have an idea of how to build a custom canvas. Just as you select the specifications for the framing, you can choose your canvas size and materials for a customized, one-of-a-kind final product. Just drop in, let us know what you need, and we’ll create a canvas to your exact specifications.

Size

At Jerry’s Artarama, there’s no such thing as “too big” or “too small.” From the tiniest cameo canvases to massive mural-sized canvases up to 30 feet long and 10 feet tall, our Houston art supply shop can handle it. Just provide us the measurements, and we’ll get started!

Material

The canvas fabric you select for your base has a major impact on the final texture of your painting, as well as affecting the feel of the brush in your hand while you work. Based on whether you’re working with oils, acrylics, or some other kind of paint, your choice of canvas can have a huge impact on your final product. To support your artistic vision, we offer a wide selection of fabrics such as the ones listed below.

  • Linen
  • Cotton
  • Jute
  • Hemp
  • Polyester

Stretcher Bars

Your artwork needs structure, and the wooden frame that your canvas is stretched over is a critical part of that structure. Come in and tell our friendly staff your preferences, and we’ll build a sturdy vehicle for your next painting. We use trusted stretcher bars from companies like Creative Mark and Jack Richeson. You describe it, and we’ll make it. When your artwork is done, don’t forget to bring it back to our Houston custom framing shop for a custom frame that will enhance your artistry. Find stretcher bars in the following materials.

  • White Pine
  • Pine
  • Spruce
