The Canvas we use is an Instant Dry Canvas WR 350 Satin - 350 g/m² which is a single side satin coated Artistic Canvas designed for high quality graphic-art applications on inkjet plotters and printers. This product is especially suitable for picture presentations as full colour graphics, reproductions of art and photos, where the structure of the fabric is very pronounced and decorative. Due to the presence of natural components (ie the cotton) in the base material, the surface characteristic may vary slightly. We apply two coats of lacquer to the canvas print to better guarantee long term quality and protection.
It is ideal for framed box canvas prints:
• Visible real-canvas-structure and good flexibility;
• Waterfast, satin-finished coating;
• Well suited for stretching over borders;
• Bleached backside for a noble touch;
• Good colour-brilliance.
You can choose to have your canvas prints rolled or framed stretched (a box canvas print).
Rolled Canvas Prints
In this case we print the image directly on to the canvas and then lacquer the surface to provide better water and scratch resistance and 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 and Framed Canvas – Box Canvas Prints - Ready To Hang
In this case we print the image directly on to the canvas and then lacquer the surface to provide better water and scratch resistance. The canvas print is then carefully stretched over an individually 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 frames up to sizes A2 (420x594mm, 16.5' x 23.4') we use 22 mm stretcher bars; for sizes A1 (594x841mm/ 23.4' x 33') and above we incorporate a central crossbar to maintain long term structural integrity. We can, if you require, supply them on 35mm bars. Each frame includes expansion wedges at each interior corner so that the frame can always be gently re-stretched to keep the canvas taut. In all cases we use warp-resistant wood to make the frames.
The largest standard framed stretched canvas print we currently produce is AO (841x1189mm/ 33' x 46.8') but we can make them up to 1000 mm x 2000mm. Again, do please contact us if you have any special requirements.
