The Perfect Canvas! #12 Cotton Duck

What makes the perfect Canvas? Depending on your application this could be a wide range of answers. If you want the heaviest our#1 is perfect; for the most colors our 10oz is it; the smoothest texture check out army duck. The best marine canvas, its Outdura. So, why do I say #12 is perfect?

#12 is extremely versatile with its 11.5oz easy to work with & manage weight.  It is double filled, so it is going to be a bit stronger than a 12oz single fill.  The weave is extremely dense similar to an army duck, but with a bit more texture.  The width selection is incredible from 36″ all the way to 144″.  It also comes primed as an Artist Canvas in widths from 60″-96″.   The weight of this canvas is appropriate for so many project applications and it is easy to dye.  Big Duck Canvas prices on #12 canvas are the most impressive with generous wholesale bulk discounts.  Check it out or request a sample.


Army Duck:The Best for Screenprinting & More!

Along with its many popular uses, Army Duck is one of the best canvas fabrics to screen print! The surface has a very smooth texture created by the densely woven cotton fibers allowing for very fine detail in printing. If you are creating a screen printed bag of any type make sure to get some our Army Duck fabric samples and see for yourself! Here is a quick video of our 10.10oz Army Duck Cotton Canvas.

We offer custom Sunforger® finishes and custom dye lots on our canvas fabrics. Our in-stock color options are limited on Army Duck, but we can work with you to create your own custom colors!

Sourcing Cotton Fabrics in the USA? We have it!


It can be challenging to source USA Made Fabric.   We have been working hard on offering more Made in the USA fabrics and finally last week we launched THREE Cotton Fabrics all completely made in the USA.  They are a 7oz Cotton Duck, 10oz cotton Duck and a 12oz Bull Denim.   More is coming and the prices will surprise you..IN A GOOD WAY!

If you have read some of the same textile articles I have over the last year, it is obvious that USA manufacturing in making a comeback.  I like a good bargain, but I love when I can buy an American made product.  It just makes me happy to use it, wear it, etc. After the textile industry basically vanished from the the Southeastern USA in the 1990’s, sourcing fabrics to make USA products has just been difficult and expensive.  Today, more and more factories are reopening in the United States.  Transportation costs are offsetting just slightly higher labor costs.  Outsourcing overseas is becoming less and less advantageous to the bottom line and the quality of the product suffers.   I am really excited about American manufacturing right now and I am happy Big Duck Canvas is able to offer fabrics that will make MADE IN THE USA an option for our customers.
