What makes a Premium Canvas?

The way I see it, a good canvas consists of 4 core elements.

  1. Quality Canvas
  2. Exquisite Printing
  3. Genuine Wooden Stretcher
  4. Craftsmanship

We’ve taken each of these elements and created the best combination to produce the best of the best canvas.

  1. Quality Canvas :
    Pure 100% Cotton Canvas. Thick, textured and evenly coated. We go a step further and coat the printed canvas with a high quality UV coating. This coating protects the print from UV light and slows the fading process. It also seals the canvas and keeps it clean. The coating we use is fade and crack resistant to ensure it outlives the life of the canvas.
  2. Exquisite Printing :
    It is a combination of The Epson printer environment, the use of Genuine Epson Archival inks and RIP software that processes the image to strict requirements and ensure the process is technically the best for the selected image.
  3. Genuine Wooden Stretcher :
    In this case, we use Obeche, thoroughly dried to eliminate the warping caused by the change in humidity as the seasons and temperatures change.
  4. Craftsmanship :
    The final step is crucial to bring all the elements together. The skill to stretch is not simply wrapping canvas over wood, it is a meticulous process of constantly adjusting and working to ensure the canvas has a consistent tension across the entire frame and the overlap is picture perfect.
