Smart Canvas Purchasing: Traditional Retail vs Online Shopping

There are many benefits to online shopping for pre-stretched canvas in lieu of traditional retail shopping.  I’ve discovered that online shopping is much more convenient than planning the fastest route to the local art supply store, increasing my gas costs to drive my car (however fuel efficient my lovely Yaris may be), and spending money on just two large canvases that may lack the quality I was looking to find.  Not mention, online shopping for pre-stretched canvas guarantees me exceptionally low stress levels!

I enjoy making smart canvas purchases through because I trust their quality and a click of my mouse saves me money!  Below, I will tell you why.  Let’s get started!

Although traditional retail shopping does provide a genuinely positive shopping experience most of the time, I’ve found that it does not keep gas money in my pocketbook which causes me stress.  Sure I could budget properly for gas costs but I usually remember that I need to go to the grocery store for a random replenishment item or just find another reason to shop on impulse.  You’ve been there before, I’m sure and it takes an exceptional amount of willpower to ignore a sudden itch to spend.

To alleviate the pitfalls of spending while shopping at retail stores, I’ve chosen to shop for art supplies and canvas in the comfort of my own home.  This way, I know what I want to purchase and how to get it to my home in a timely manner.  I also do not feel the pressure that comes with spending in public or guilty if a nice salesperson makes me feel obligated to purchase just one more little item that will improve their metrics.

As previously mentioned, I refer to Canvas Lot  for my bulk canvas purchases.  When you land on their website, you’re immediately greeted with videos that detail their production process.  If you can believe it, there are real people that are stretching the canvas by hand!  Made-to-order and custom-fitted, these canvases are the real deal.  You’re not going to purchase five canvases wrapped haphazardly in celophane that have been warped due to poor shipping and storage practices.  You’re going to receive hand-stretched canvases that have been given the attention that you’d expect.

Many artists, such as yourself, know how to stretch their own canvas but in the event that you just don’t have the time to do so, you need to sit in front of your computer and go to to get your bulk canvases.

If you have a budget of $100.00, you can get at least 9 quality canvases, if not one more for giggles!  Sure, you can go to to search for a more affordable price but are you going to receive the same quality?  Do you know where your canvas is coming from?  Do you know who made it?  Most likely you won’t know the answer to these questions – with you have the assurance of knowing that your dollars will get you the most canvases at the best quality from the experienced hands of Austin, Texas residents.

It’s just that simple!
