FINE ART (GICLÉE) CANVAS
We print on Breathing Color Lyve canvas, the best canvas available. It has the look and feel of traditional artist’s canvas, is made with 100% cotton, and no OBAs (Optical Brightener Additives) which adds to its archival quality.
Printer and Inks
We print with an Epson P20000 printer and use the UltraChrome Pro 10 color inkset. The 4 levels of black allow it to produce exceptional shadow detail and an extraordinarily neutral B&W. Color inks have a life of up to 200 years and B&W inks up to 400 years according to Wilhelm Research.
We highly recommend that your fine art canvas be finished with a protective spray. This protects it from environmental damage including moisture and UV light to extend its life. We offer sprays in gloss, satin, or matte. The choice of sheen will affect the dynamic range of the finished piece. Gloss images have a richer black and higher dynamic range, but can glare if strong light strikes them at sharp angles.
WALL DÉCOR CANVAS
Wall Décor Canvas is a good choice for a quality canvas at an affordable price. It is a bright white canvas with a satin finish made with a 65% polyester, 35% cotton blend. It is 17 mil, 370 g/m2 weight with a brightness of 94%.
Printer and Inks We print our Wall Décor canvas with an Epson S80 printer.
Protective Spray This canvas and ink combination does not require a protective coating. If a finish other than satin is preferred, the protective spray choices include matte, gloss, or texture.

Stretching and Edges
Canvas prints can be purchased and rolled or stretched to be framed or ready-to-hang as "gallery wraps." The sides of the gallery wraps can be finished with a choice of three different techniques:
We take the image at the edge of the canvas, copy it, and use it for the sides. This works very well in most situations. DO NOT USE IF...there is a face or detail that would look unnatural if it were mirrored at the edge.
The image is actually wrapped around the edge. This is a good choice if you have lots of additional image around the main subject so that it will not crop into it.
You may choose a solid border around the edge of black, white, or a color. If you click on the down arrow in the box you will get a pop-up color chart to choose from.
