Steve Palis


Steve’s Custom Canvas was started in 1991 by Steve Palis, working out of a trailer in the back of Sutter Marine on Irondequoit Bay. The seasonal boat canvas business quickly expanded services and grew into a full service year-round custom canvas, upholstery and awning manufacturer. In 1994 the company moved into its present 9,000 square production facility at 765 County Line Road at the corner of route 104 in Webster. The experienced craftsmen on staff at Steve’s Custom Canvas enjoy a solid reputation for quality and customer service. Today, they continue to grow the company and expand its capabilities.

Where We Are…
We are conveniently located at the corner of Route 104 and County Line Road and across the street from Crown Electric – just two miles east of Xerox’s Webster Plant on the Monroe / Wayne County border.
