The Art of Longevity: Why Trekell’s Cradled Baltic Birch Panels Stand the Test of Time

When it comes to creating art that endures, the choice of canvas is as crucial as the quality of the paint applied to it. At Trekell Art Supplies, our Cradled Baltic Birch Panels are designed not just to enhance the present beauty of your artwork but to preserve its integrity far into the future. Crafted with care in our Hesperia, CA factory, these panels combine traditional craftsmanship with innovative design to offer a superior foundation for artists who think ahead.


Built with Baltic Birch and Basswood

Our panels are constructed from high-grade B/BB Baltic birch, known for its smooth texture and uniform appearance, making it a favorite among artists who require a flawless starting point for their work. This top-quality birch is supported by a basswood cradle, ensuring a lightweight yet sturdy frame that complements the birch's robustness.

The Benefits of a Thicker Panel

While many art panels on the market use a thinner 1/8" facing, Trekell has chosen to innovate by adopting a thicker 1/4" Baltic birch facing for several compelling reasons:

  • Enhanced Structural Integrity: A thicker panel naturally resists warping, maintaining a flat surface that stands up to various environmental conditions without bending.
  • Greater Resistance to Cracking: Wood naturally expands and contracts with changes in humidity and temperature. A thicker panel minimizes this fluctuation, significantly reducing the risk of splitting over time.
  • Archival Quality: For artists concerned with the longevity of their work, the archival factor of our panels is paramount. The sturdy construction ensures that your artwork remains preserved in its original form, safe from the detriments of time and environment.


A Commitment to Quality and Sustainability

Each Trekell panel reflects a commitment not just to the artist’s immediate needs but to the enduring value of their creations. By choosing materials that are both durable and sustainable, we ensure that your artwork not only looks exceptional upon completion but continues to do so years later.

Why Choose Trekell’s Panels?
