Masterart Stretched canvases

Masterart stretched canvases are available in four profile depths 18mm - 65mm

All orders over $100.00 that can fit on the courier - shipped for no additional cost

Tanji's will not add any shipping costs to orders that have total value that exceeds $100.00 that we can put on Aramex Courier. This means that for any deliveries to non-rural locations you will not pay any additional costs for canvases/rolls of canvas/stretchers up to 1200 x 2200 mm. If you are in a rural location we can only ship a package up to 1500 mm long (NZ Post Rural Contractor limitations).
However, if your canvas/ package exceeds these sizes, we can still have your order delivered to you by MainFreight Transport but in some circumstances there will be additional shipping costs (subject to the package size and your delivery address).   See more detail

Tanji's Art Supplies:

Art-Canvas Specialists

New Zealand's supplier of stretched artists canvas to professional artists


Tanji's Art Supplies Ltd was established in June 2000 as a retailer of fine art supplies. Quickly discovering there was a lack of good quality hand crafted artists surfaces available to professional artists in New Zealand, Tanji's established Masterart ltd to develop and manufacture high quality stretched canvases.

Tanji's Art Supplies remains the sole source of Masterart branded canvases and also sells stretcher bars, and smaller rolls of the same canvases we use for our own in-house production.

Updated web site
6 September 2023

We have over the past few months been busy redesigning some of the elements of this website. We were one of the very early E-Commerse web site in New Zealand when we launched back in 2002. Unfortunately some of the original graphics, format and layout had become a bit stale.

There are still some pages that require us to fill with content and a couple of products that we have decided to reinstate, but still have to upload the data to the website servers.

At Tanji's, we are aware that every artist has different requirements for their stretched canvases, including different height profiles, and surface textures. Go to our Stretched Canvas page to find out more

Tanji's offers a range of stretcher bar options - all made in our factory in rural Tauranga.

At  Tanji's, we stock a selected range of engineered float frame (tray frame) profiles and sizes. To find out more go to the float frame page. 

Tanji's offers a canvas stretching service. If you have a painting or a print, we will make a custom stretcher frame just for your image and stretch the canvas for you.
