Canvas Corp (Canvas Home Basics)
Inspired by Designers. Developed by Merchants. Created for Every Home.
Welcome to Canvas Corp (Canvas Home Basics) based out of Springdale, Arkansas, is led by Randy and Christine Meier. Canvas Corp manufactures and distributes a line of craft, scrapbooking and home decor basics under the brand name Canvas Home Basics. Established in 2006, Canvas Corp made its entry into the market with a focus on products that offer great basic solutions for the craft and home decor markets. At the end of 2011 two amazing brands joined Canvas Corp, 7gypsies and Tattered Angels and they each were tucked under the Canvas Corp Brands umbrella.
We offer basic blank paper items, printed papers, printed fabrics and craft embellishments that are perfect for card making, scrapbooking, general crafts, custom invitations and more, as well as a wide range of canvas and burlap sewn surfaces including tote bags, aprons, placemats, pillows, tree skirts, stockings, fabric books, banners, pennants, stretched canvas and burlap, flowers, fringe, wine bags, treat bags, goodie bags, laundry bags, back packs, cross-body bags and more.
The collection of blanks is perfect for craft and DIY projects, monogramming, screen printing, direct to garment printing, iron ons, class room projects, art teachers, etc. The line of products was established to fill a need in the market for creative basics that inspire the creative process.
While not all items are made in our Springdale, Arkansas facility it is our focus to print, manufacture and package as many of our items as possible in the USA. We also offer custom canvas and burlap cut & sewn designed products. We offer our product wholesale to be resold in retail stores, Makers, Etsy shops, craft fairs designers, vintage markets and more.
In the summer of 2011 we acquired BagWorks, allowing Canvas Corp to begin manufacturing a majority of its sewn items in-house, as well as maintaining the basic line of blank canvas products that BagWorks supplies to the craft, school, printing and gift markets. Bag Works is our OEM division where we offer a wide range of custom blanks for school, promotional, churches, online shops, craft makers, manufactures and more. Bag Works offers a wide range of vintage and current patterns with new ones being designed each day. While we ship under the Canvas Corp name, we don’t ever want to forget the passion, design and handwork that went into building the Bag Works brand and collection of cut and sew items.
We also offer wholesale screen printing services with fair minimum orders.
We strive to make environmentally smart decisions whenever possible. Our papers are all made from recycled materials, including our Kraft which is 100% recycled, we focus on natural resources that are renewable and do not leave a carbon footprint. We design our products with minimum packaging or reusable packaging. If we all do a little bit, then together we can make a big difference. We also minimize our waste, using up every last piece of scrap.
Made in the USA
While not all of the Canvas Corp Brands products are made in the USA, the majority of our products are manufactured in our Springdale, Arkansas factory or sourced locally. For items sourced off shore we strive for the best quality, uniqueness and the ability to supply the needs of our market. All of our graphic design work is done in-house, product design, along with our fabric and cut and sew design work. We love supporting our local and US economy and we work hard to develop and design products we can manufacture in our facilities allowing us to provide more work and business locally.
