All canvas prints are made with 400gsm Sihl Masterclass cotton/polyester canvas.
This Cotton/Poly blend canvas has a great natural texture with a 2:1 weave. The structure of the fabric is very pronounced which lends the material a decorative effect. Due to the presence of natural cotton components in the base material, the surface characteristics may vary slightly.
This canvas is made in Germany by one of the largest media suppliers in the world.
Iit also has very high archival ratings and is printed with 12 colour Canon Lucia EX pigment Inks. It has been laboratory tested to last over 100 years without fading (when displayed correctly).
Your canvas is spray-coated with Aquathane for added protection. Aquathane provides your canvas with high flexibility, extra scratch resistance, anti-fungal ultra clear finish and most importantly, superior Ultra Violet light blocking ability.
All of our timber stretcher bars originate from regrowth forests - the 32mm bars are Queensland grown, kiln dried Araucaria pine while the 18mm and 42/50mm bars are from New Zealand Radiata Pine. All are guaranteed not to warp or shrink. We do not use Australian hardwood timber (Eucalypts such as Vic Ash or Tassie Oak) or non-regrowth Asian rainforest timber (Meranti).
The edges of the stretcher bars are all rounded to give a beautiful smooth finish to the stretched canvas.
All canvas prints come complete with hanging hardware and bump-stops, ready to hang on your wall.
Prints under 60x40cm will have an 18mm frame; prints 60x40cm and over will have a 32mm frame; prints 110x75cm and over will have a 42mm frame.
