We use an Instant Dry Canvas WR 350 Satin - 350 g/m² - a single side satin coated Artistic Canvas especially suited for full colour giclée reproductions of art and photos. It has a good colour-brilliance and a bleached backside for that extra noble touch.
Due to the presence of natural cotton in the base material, the surface characteristic may vary slightly.
When printed we apply two coats of lacquer to canvas prints to provide better water protection, scratch resistance and long term quality.
You can choose to have canvas prints rolled or framed stretched - a box canvas print.
Rolled Canvas Poster Prints
We print the poster directly on to the canvas and then lacquer the surface. Then when perfectly dry, roll the print and place it in a strong cardboard tube for shipping.
Rolled canvas prints are shipped with a 75mm white space around the image to enable you to have it stretched yourself.
Stretched – Box Canvas Poster Prints
We print the poster on to the canvas and then lacquer the surface. The canvas poster print is then stretched over a custom-made wooden frame to create a box canvas ready for you to hang. The image is not wrapped around the edge of the stretcher bars; we use a sufficient margin to enable the image to be seen on the front of the frame leaving a white canvas colour around the frame edge.
For box canvas print frames up to sizes A2 (420 x 594mm, 16.5' x 23.4') we use 22 mm stretcher bars; for sizes A1 (594 x 841mm/ 23.4' x 33') and above we incorporate a central crossbar to maintain long term structural integrity. Each frame includes expansion wedges at interior corners so that the frame can be gently re-stretched to keep the canvas taut. We use warp-resistant wood to make the frames.
The largest standard framed stretched canvas print we produce is AO (841 x 1189mm/ 33' x 46.8'). Please contact us if you have any special requirements.
