Finest Professional Quality Satin Artist Canvas Prints:
The canvas print media we use is the finest gallery quality canvas material that features a pre-applied protective coating so it is not necessary to apply post stretching coatings to protect the printed image. Our canvas is a very heavy 350g basis weight with a 99% opacity rating and the coating of this canvas is specifically engineered for better than 340% ink coverage.
The satin finish provides a soft and subtle sheen to the printed image that enhances the light canvas texturing and improves the vibrancy of the printed image. This satin finish has an overall gloss factor of about 20%, not too dull or not too glossy, to provide a good full range presentation of the printed image even when viewed at display angles.
Our satin finish artist canvas produces printed images that are extremely well defined with excellent color saturation. Whether the input file is from a digital photo, digital artwork or fine art generated digital images, the printed results are professional in nature and will stand up to any presentation application you may require.
Specialized Professional Photo Processing for Optimal Canvas Print Quality:
At PhotoArt Imaging, all pre-print digital processing of digital images is manually performed by a highly experienced imaging expert for the finest print quality with each and every image. We do not use software applications that auto-process image files for printing as many print source providers use, since this practice can yield unstable results in terms of image color, characteristics and overall image quality.
The importance of individual image processing is especially important when printing on canvas media. Canvas media has much different substrate characteristics than most photographic papers, including a lower white point. Due to these factors, every photo printed on canvas should have individualized enhancement adjustments made to the image for the best print results. This can only be done by an experienced imaging expert while viewing the image on a calibrated and profiled monitor using a color management enabled system. This is precisely how we prepare each digital photo for printing on canvas.
Advanced Printer Software Settings Create Improved Print Dynamics on Canvas Media:
The final, and possibly most important aspect of producing premium quality photo enlargements of digital photos on canvas, is the software that powers the printer. This software is known as RIP (raster image processing). We employ a highly advanced RIP with extremely refined color management. This RIP color management system takes the processed input digital file and applies color profiles to the file taking into account the printer ink and the specific canvas media. Our RIP applies a specialized canvas color profile that can take advantage of the 340% ink coverage coating provided by the satin artist canvas to produce canvas prints that have extremely vibrant colors, improved image dynamics and overall print quality that is second to none.
