A lot of advanced technology and professional expertise are required to produce the product you expect. And that’s particularly true when you desire an archival-quality canvas print. At Creative Printing, we start and finish your canvas here in the print shop to ensure the highest quality.
However, before we get into the critical details, you should know that all of the products we use on our canvas prints meet the archival standards set by the Fine Art Trade Guild. Now, here is how we assure a product you’re pleased with.
First, to produce your canvas print with ultra-high-quality imaging, we use a state-of-the-art wide format printer.
Second, we achieve the high-end results – critical to photographers and artists – by employing the twelve-color LUCIA pigment ink system. This technology consistently achieves breathtaking, durable and long lasting prints.
But what about the canvas itself? A critical question. To achieve the archival standard, we use a certified 19-millimeter poly-cotton matte canvas of the highest quality.
Using these tools, technologies and materials, our professionals print your canvas.
Once that’s done, there is a 24-hour drying period. When your print is perfectly dried, we use a museum-grade (satin or gloss finish) varnish to protect and preserve your print from fading and dust. Once applied, the varnish must dry for another 24 hours before we can wrap your canvas on our solid wood frames.
The penultimate step is framing, and we put the same professional care into that component of the process, simply because the print reproduction and the frame become one valued piece of art.
The last step is yours: customer satisfaction. We take great pride in our work and our products. Only when you are pleased with the result is the process complete.
