Our Low Gloss Canvas is a cotton/poly blend, museum-grade, heavy 18 mils thick, weighing 350 g/sm. This bright, natural white, coated canvas utilizes a low gloss coating to maximize colors and black richness while keeping glare to a minimum.
Our materials are subject to change.
Care of Canvas Prints
These prints are shipped in a durable tube with the face of the print rolled inside to prevent any scratching of the print's printed surface during shipping and handling.
The printed surface of the Low Gloss Canvas is relatively durable, resistant to fingerprints scuffing and moisture. The ink is not water soluble. That said, you should handle these prints with care.
For maximum life we recommend avoiding placement of the print in direct sunlight.
The canvas print may be blotted clean with a moist, soft cotton cloth.
IMPORTANT: Page Size Specifications
The sizes listed on this site are nominal measurements of the substrate (paper/canvas) on which the artwork is printed. The image, itself, is always smaller than the size of the substrate. The guide below will help you understand what to expect based upon the size you choose.
- Images will be smaller than the page size specified.
- All page sizes represent nominal standards; they are not precise measurements. We do not add extra blank material at the end of the print simply to make the nominal page size match a precise value.
- Images are not guaranteed to be precisely centered on the page.
- Different images have different aspect ratios (different shapes), so for the same nominal page size, they may have different actual image and paper sizes.
As a consequence of the above, frames and stretcher bars should be purchased after you receive your prints, and you are able to size them precisely.
The canvas will have 2 to 3 inches of white unprinted margin to aid in stretching and framing. The image will be printed as large as possible to fill the selected size while leaving approximately the 2-3 inch margin (all the way around) for the purpose of stretching onto stretcher bars. For example, a a print ordered on a 24x36 canvas would actually have a printed area measuring about 20x32 (depending on the aspect rato of the particular image). We use a little larger border (up to approximately three inches) for the largest sizes to accommodate wider stretcher bars.
Because canvas is usually stretched onto stretcher bars, we print the copyright notice upside-down, outside of the stretcherbar margin. This way the copyright notice will appear on the backside of the framed print, right-side-up.
Our Digital Printing Process
Our images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality inks onto various substrates including canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper. Utilizing a professional 12-Color ink-jet printer, this printing process is designed to offer a large, bright color gamut while achieving archivability well over 100 years in gallery conditions. The process provides better color accuracy than other means of reproduction and quality that rivals traditional silver-halide and gelatin printing processes. This process produces the same prints commonly found in museums, art galleries, and photographic galleries.
