Standard Canvas Print
We use two types of canvas media. Both of them are from the American company - Breathing Colour.
Our standard 800M canvas is 450gsm, poly-cotton blend and is mainly designed for the reproduction of images for interior decoration purposes. It has high levels of Optical Brightening Agents (OBA's) which provide an extraordinary white point and better contrast. This canvas has a very good colour gamut and will be suitable for most applications. This canvas still produces quality looking canvas prints, only without an archival certificate. It is far superior to 99% of the polyester or cotton canvasses offered by competitors. It has medium texture, with Oxford 2-over-1 weave.
Premium Canvas Print
We use Breathing Colour Lyve Archival-Certified canvas as a premium option. This 450gsm media has an Archival Quality Certificate issued by the Fine Art Trade Guild, which means that the high quality and print permanence has been tested and confirmed. This canvas is widely used by many artists for Giclee printed limited editions of their prints, and also by photographers to serve customers who expect a perfect product that will last over 100 years. It is produced without the use of OBA's. It is acid free and has a neutral pH coating. Combined with the Timeless Satin varnish that we use, Lyve canvas offers the most archival photo and art reproduction available.
