  • Best stretcher of them all - Perfect Paper Stretcher 9.5"x13.5" (1/4 Imperial)

    This is the best paper stretcher I have ever used and I have tried many. The paper is tight and solid which eliminates those annoying ripples. I use all three sizes. Peter Zdenek (Mercerville, USA) on 31 Mar 2012

  • Very good

    Can be a bit tricky to get the paper out of the grooves after it's dried a while, but overall an excellent product Lisa Cirenza (London, United Kingdom) on 8 Jul 2012

    Ken Bromley's replies: Hi, if you try lightly sanding the stretcher in the grooves, this should remove any excess varnish which could be causing the paper to stick.

  • Absolutely invaluable

    I teach art classes and also do a lot of demonstrations and workshops for art groups and societies. I find the paper stretchers absolutely invaluable for this as I have to demonstrate on quite a large size of paper - otherwise the audience won't see it very well. If I used a big sheet of 300lb paper for a demo it would work out far too expensive but with a paper stretcher I can use a 90lb paper very successfully. I have two half Imperial paper stretchers and one full Imperial one.

    Incidentally I find it a lot easier to use 90lb weight paper than 140lb. It hammers in very much easier. I tend to use a really good quality cotton paper (such as Arches or Saunders-Waterford) but only 90lb in weight. It makes a beautiful surface when stretched. Margaret Ellis (Sheffield) on 5 Oct 2009
