Embracing Imperfection: How Trekell Art Supplies Promotes Sustainability with Imperfect Panels


At Trekell Art Supplies, we believe every piece of material has value and potential, even those that don’t meet our stringent quality standards. This belief drives our commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility, ensuring that nothing goes to waste. Our range of Imperfect Panels is a testament to this commitment, providing artists with high-quality materials at discounted prices while reducing waste. 

Why Offer Imperfect Panels?

Our Imperfect Panels come from our dedication to minimizing waste in every aspect of our production. During the manufacturing process, not every panel comes out perfect. Instead of discarding these less-than-perfect items, we've chosen to offer them to our customers at a varying discounts. This approach not only helps us reduce waste but also allows artists to purchase our high-quality products at more affordable prices.

Understanding the Grades of Imperfect Panels

To cater to different needs and preferences, we offer our Imperfect Panels in three grades, each available at a different discount:

Grade A Panels (20% off): These panels have such minor imperfections that they are almost unnoticeable. They are ideal for any artist who appreciates a near-perfect canvas but at a slightly lower price.

Grade B Panels (35% off): These panels come with imperfections that are visible but can easily be remedied. With a bit of wood filler, primer, or an extra layer of paint, these imperfections can be effectively masked, making these panels a great option for practice or experimental projects.

Grade C Panels (50% off): Offering the highest discount, these panels have the most noticeable imperfections, which are typically not repairable. They are perfect for artists who are looking to experiment freely without concern for the underlying canvas or for educational purposes where the focus is on learning techniques rather than the final output.

Sustainability at the Core

By choosing to purchase an Imperfect Panel, artists are not only having their dollar go further but are also participating in a larger movement towards environmental sustainability. These panels are a practical solution to reduce waste and promote the reuse of materials, aligning with our goals to maintain an eco-friendly and sustainable business model.

Eco-Friendly, Economically Smart

Trekell’s Imperfect Panels represent our dual commitment to the environment and to the artistic community. Artists from all backgrounds can access high-quality materials at a fraction of the cost, reduce their environmental footprint, and embrace the beauty of imperfections in their artistic journey.

Whether you are a seasoned artist or just starting out, these panels offer a unique opportunity to save money, reduce waste, and contribute to a more sustainable world. Join us in making a difference, one imperfect panel at a time.
