Gallery Stretcher – Exceeding our goals…
Greg Moulin is a talented graphic designer and owner of a popular picture framing company that is a landmark in Columbus, Ohio.
Dave Weaver is a retired Coast Guard Engineer Officer with several industrial designs to his credit, including a stream bed dam that protects an endangered species of fish from a crude oil seep.
When Moulin and Weaver first combined forces, their goal was to create a lightweight and easy-to-use canvas stretch machine.
After several prototypes and nearly a year of extensive testing, they created a stretcher that exceeded their objectives — the Gallery Stretcher 60.
A user-friendly canvas stretcher
Moulin and Weaver quickly realized they had created a product so efficient, portable and affordable that it would be a valuable tool for others. They understood the number of small businesses that print giclée to canvas is growing rapidly — and many of these businesses would benefit from owning a user-friendly, affordable, in-house stretcher. In 2008 they began offering Gallery Stretchers to custom frame shops, printers and artists.
