Can PanelPaks carry stretched canvases?

Yes, but with a word of caution. The wet side of Paintings in a PanelPak are held very close together. Canvas is flexible and pressure applied from the back of one canvas can cause it touch the opposite painting. This is easily avoided by overlaying back side of your stretchers with stiff panels. One hardboard cover comes with every PanelPak and can be used for this purpose. See "How thin can panels be?" below.

Do PanelPaks work with my favorite type of panel?
Yes, almost any type of panel will work including gator, foam and mat board, Masonite, hardboard, plywood and heavy cardboard. 

How thick can panels be?
Panels are held in place with rubber bands that can stretch to accommodate any thickness. Deep cradles, plywood or Innerglow panels are no problem for PanelPak.

How thin can panels be?
Panels less than 1/8" are easily accommodated in a PanelPak with the addition of a second (dry) backing panel. This helps the rubber band make contact with the panel and hold it firmly in place. It also provides additional stiffness so accidental pressure does not cause paintings to touch in the middle where they face each other. One hardboard panel comes with every PanelPak and can be used for this purpose along with another panel of your own.
