18MM STRETCHER BARS
A while ago this year we gave the disappointing news that we would stop our supply of traditional stretcher bars. This was (amongst other things) due to the fact of the price rises we saw in timber. However, we have had a flood of customers still ask if we can do our range of stretcher bars at a new price including this increase in wood cost. It seems that the quality of our stretcher frames were better than most on the market.
You ask. We supply
We deliberated this for a while. We'd decommissioned all of our stretcher machines and sold off most of the excess stocks we had, but decided that we would get the machines back up and running and offer customers our service again.
However its not just the machines we decommissioned. We'd also stopped our ability to take card payments over the phone. We also got the guys making them doing some other important things around our manufacturing facility.
18mm bespoke stretcher bars
As a UK manufacturer we source all of out timber from UK suppliers and we know that because of this we are going to get a very good quality of timber. We know that we can make bespoke frames at a very competitive cost, but with standard sizes the market is so flooded its very very difficult to compete, so for now we are offering the following.
- Bespoke made 18mm deep traditional stretcher bars. We can do standard sizes with this method, but they will also be bespoke made, so we wont hold any stock
- 5-7 day approximate leadtime on all orders. We'll usually have them out before this, but we don't want customers to get disappointed at our busy periods
- Internet only sales. Bespoke sales can only be completed over the internet, we no longer have the facility to take payments over the phone.
