1. Super fast stretching
By our reckoning Wunderbars is anywhere between two and three times as quick to stretch than traditional stretcher bars. Squaring and putting the bars together is a breeze, you just, well, slot them together. The actual stretch is so simple all you need is a staple gun, so there's no wasted time in getting the canvas taught with a set of pliers. The whole process of stretching the canvas has been developed to make the best and quickest use of the product. Over twelve frames, you can save up to an hour in time letting you get on with selling you images, not stretching your images.
2. No tools required
3. Constant tension
Pretty fundamental to a stretched canvas is that it stays stretched for the longest time possible. Humidity plays a massive roll in this. The wood and the canvas will contract and expand to the humidity of the room in which its hung. Quite often the wedges need to be re-hammered or water sprayed on the canvas to get it back to its original tightness. If its a cut and pin stretcher bar, apart from spraying it with water, its not going to re-stretch. With Wunderbars this does not happen. Saggy canvas's are a thing of the past. The corner blocks in Wunderbars are spring loaded, which means that the pressure is on the canvas ALL of the time. Your canvas will contact and expand to the environment its hung.
4. No experience necessary
Never stretched canvas before? Try using traditional stretcher bars. You'll wish that you'd never started. Stretching with traditional stretcher bars takes experience and practice. With Wunderbars you can learn how to stretch with little or no tuition.
5. Fully reversible
Made a mistake? No problem. Unpick the staples, remove the canvas and reload the corner blocks. To reload the blocks simply get a small vice or push down on the desk and stick the pin back in. Wunderbars conforms to the guidelines that are required by the Fine Art Trade Guild.
So in summary. Its fast meaning you have time to make money elsewhere. There's no tools, so there's no maintenance or extra outlay, which saves you money. Its under constant tension, so you don't get any slack canvas's returned for re-stretching, which enhances the reputation of your service. Repeat custom, means repeat money. There's no experience necessary meaning you don't have to employ someone with a vast set of skills, just to stretch canvas, saving money. It's reversible. Don't make a mistake and throw your work away, just do it again.........did we mention Wunderbars can save you money?
