Quality and Care of your Photo Canvas

Our giclee canvas prints are produced using only the best equipment and materials available. Longevity is the guiding factor in our choice of materials, as it would be pointless using inks that are guaranteed for 75 years printed onto inferior quality canvas and stretched onto cheap frames which are not going to last the distance. We want your pieces of artwork to last you at least one lifetime, so we produce our canvasses with that always in our minds and have sourced our supplies accordingly.

Our canvasses are not the cheapest on the net but our quality is second to non and having produced thousands of pieces of art for people all over the world we are still proud that we maintain our 100% customer satisfaction record, having never had a print rejected in our two years of trading! We also hope that our discerning customers are willing to pay that little bit extra for something they can be confident will look fantastic on their wall for many years to come.

PRINTER



We use Canon iPF8000 wide format printers which are capable of producing giclee prints to a very high standard of 2400x1200 dpi maximum resolution.

Unlike conventional inkjet printers this machine feature a dual 1-inch wide print head. There are 2,560 nozzles for each of the 12 colours, a total of 30,720 nozzles.

The unrivalled nozzle density enables printing of the highest quality

INKS



We use a Canon LUCIA 12 colour pigment ink system which provides superior quality and colour performance, The LUCIA inks boast an incredibly wide colour gamut, smooth graduation and reduced graininess.

The excellent lightfastness ( 75 years + ) ensures the longevity of your Giclee print with minimal image degradation, and the pigment-based ink offers excellent water resistance.

MEDIA



Inkjet specific 360 gsm Matte Canvas

Archival quality acid free 100% cotton canvas 

Brilliant White Inkjet coating provides excellent vibrant colours

Water Resistant

UV COATING



Every canvas print that we create, we coat with a special water resistant UV coating. It is sprayed onto the canvas using a professional spray gun and compressor system.

The UV lacquer coating is a matte finish ( satin or gloss finishes are available as an option by special request )  which gives a  more even coating. It protects the image from dirt, dust and scuffing and also boosts the saturation of the colours giving richer hues and more solid blacks and further enhancing the effect of your piece of artwork.

Some canvas printing companies charge for this as an optional extra adding up to ten pounds  to the price of your wall art so beware when comparing prices!





Bars



We use only the best Premium European Pine Bars  dried to a moisture content of less than 8%,  which are very high quality and eco friendly.They are produced from short lengths of bar joined together so minimising the possibility of warping.

We produce canvases on two different depths of frame ( 38mm or 18mm ), the choice is yours!

 Frames for Canvas artwork over 36" are fitted with cross bars which add further to the sturdiness and stability of an already very high quality product.

 

Care Instructions



Our canvas art is made using UV pigment inks, these inks provide enhanced lightfastness compared to Dye-based inks, ensuring that your giclee canvas remains vibrant and fade free for many years after purchase.

  *  As with all art prints, keep your canvas away from direct sunlight as this can fade the colours and affect the frame with extreme temperatures and light.

  * Do not hang your canvas art in areas of extreme heat variations and humidity such as bathrooms or directly above radiators. If the relative humidity keeps on changing then the canvas will expand and contract.

  * If you find over time the wooden frame needs tensioning just use a hammer to gently tap the wedges into each corner on the inside of the canvas. All our canvases come with tensioning wedges as standard.

  * Canvas prints are not weatherproof so ensure you hang them inside the house.

  * To clean the canvas just use a soft, dry, lint-free cloth. Electrostatic dust cloths and feather dusters also work well. You shouldn’t need to dust more than once every few years. Our canvases have a UV varnish applied to them to provide a  protective layer to the material and ink.

  * To remove dirt build up or splashes wipe very gently with a slightly damp soft cloth, then allow to dry. Never rub your canvas print too hard or continuously in the same area.

Hi Martin

We recently purchased the Burniston Sunrise three way split canvass from you after seeing it in the Blue Crush bar on the North Bay. We were impressed by your prompt response to our online enquiry, your professional guidance and the speed with the order and delivery.

We would definitely recommend you to family and friends.

The picture is hung in our bedroom and now every morning we wake we’re transported back to Scarborough.

Thanks,

Glen and Sue

I spoke to you about this blob on my picture and I will try to remove it.
I'll let you know how I get on.
