Although we don’t have to wear masks when we venture outside, and many of us are back in the office, the canvass painting services are still running behind. Some designers have said that new orders are delayed indefinitely, others have lead times of over a year.
And finishing is opening up, but there are still delays. More and more threads are coming into the supply chai, but some manufacturers and dyers are still behind.
Finally, one maker of acrylic trays has put a freeze on new orders.
My advice, buy what’s in stock when possible. If you want a specific canvas, call your shop first to get lead times. And, most importantly, plan ahead!
