Durable, copper-coated tacks for classic canvas stretching!

Copper tacks provide strength, durability, corrosion protection and are less prone to ripping canvas than wire staples or upholstery tacks. Paris Copper Tacks are made of a durable steel base coated in a thick layer of corrosion and rust-resistant solid copper. The copper coating is essential as rust and corrosion around non-copper tacks will eat away the canvas or linen fabric. Artists wishing to adopt the highest standards in the materials they work with use copper tacks. Stop using staple guns for stretching canvas, and add archival value to your paintings with affordable and long-lasting Paris Copper Tacks!

Durable, copper-coated tacks for classic canvas stretching!

For centuries, copper tacks were the only acceptable way to stretch canvas onto wooden support frames. Copper tacks provide strength, durability, corrosion protection and are less prone to ripping canvas than wire staples or upholstery tacks. Some artists use copper-dipped #6 upholstery tacks on their canvases, believing that they are as safe and durable as artists' tacks. Due to the sharp, jagged linear tooth of the upholstery tack, a rough slit is created, causing possible tearing over time with canvas flex or if re-stretching is necessary.

Paris Copper Tacks are made of a durable steel base coated in a thick layer of corrosion and rust-resistant solid copper. The copper coating is essential as rust and corrosion around non-copper tacks will eat away the canvas or linen fabric, rendering the tacks useless. Artists wishing to adopt the highest standards in the materials they work with use copper tacks.

Tips from the Products Specialist when using Paris Copper Tacks: We suggest that you use a magnetic hammer. The hammer's magnetic head will ease frustration from dropped tacks and provide a more comfortable balance when stretching with one hand and nailing with the other. It would be best if you also used a normal-sized hammer instead of a tiny trim hammer. Quality stretchers are designed to be durable, and a heftier hammer will make driving the tack much easier and faster.
