Printing on Canvas
Given the progress in inkjet and media technology, demand for
printing photographs and art on canvas is growing exponentially.
Whether you have a good inkjet printer or you prefer to have your
work done by a professional outfit, it is worth to explore this
option for any type of image. We constantly receive requests from
wedding and portrait photographers who want to print large canvas
for their clients.
Artists regularly order limited edition prints on canvas and
watercolor papers to sell to collectors. These reproductions
usually are signed and are accompanied by a COA (Certificate of
authenticity). Buyers are very receptive to purchasing canvas
prints they can hang up without a protective glass, without
worrying about scratches and water damage.
The texture of a fine art canvas is unparalleled in beauty; a
protective coating is applied on top to give the substrate a
matte, lustre or glossy look. If you prefer to experiment with
this material to see the results, canvas sheets are available at
many stores that carry inkjet products.
The differences between a home desktop printer and a
professional one are many but I will focus on the most important.
First, commercial machines can be outfitted with pigmented inks;
these inks differ from dye inks commonly found in the cheap home
printers because they are archival and will not fade for decades.
Dyes on the other hand will start losing brilliance in a matter
of months. There are some home use printers now that offer a form
of hybrid dye/pigment system. The second difference is the nozzle
quality; pro level systems have extremely sophisticated nozzles
that can render a very fine dot and exceptional tonal
The process of printing on fine art materials such as canvas
and watercolor papers is referred to as "giclee". Giclee is a
french term that loosely translated means "sprayed on". It refers
to the nozzles which spray ink onto the paper. Giclee printing
involves some of the characteristics described above and it is
usually performed by professional shops.
You can read more about giclee and canvas
printing on our website.
