Cantexx Stitching has been working with BC Wood for years and is a trusted source (at a very good price) for anything you think you might need in the way of branded product. Locally owned and operated, James Lu and his team do most of the stitching and screening on-site at their small plant in Langley, which means you aren’t waiting for a shipment from off-shore or back east.
