Contract Canvas is an archival print on a heavyweight, polycotton canvas. It is varnished with a high sheen finish and mounted to hardboard using acid-free adhesive to an archival quality hardboard, making the art scratch and puncture resistant, and UV inhibiting with anti-fungal properties. Braces are used in over-sized canvases and when necessary. It appears to the eye to simply be a gallery wrapped canvas, but it perfect for display in high traffic areas.
Edge Framed uses the Contract Canvas for the art images, which is then framed with a 1/4″ MDF edge frame making the art a finished product. Frame finish options available.
Acrylic artworks are printed on the reverse of crystal-clear acrylic with polished sides and face creating a high-gloss print. Stainless Steel stand-off hardware in each corner gives the art three-dimensionality unavailable with any other substrate. Due to the nature of this printing process, light and white areas appear translucent or transparent and reveal the surface behind the artwork. Images are either printed full bleed or with clear borders depending on selection.
Glossy Laminate on Acrylic (GLA) offers the dimensionality and high-contrast of prints on acrylic that are completely opaque. Prints are made on a light-blocking polyester film and seamlessly laminated onto acrylic sheets for a bold modern look.
Aluminum artworks are printed on aluminum ply with a polyethylene core. Aluminum face is brushed with a clear protective film to prevent oxidization. This substrate is moisture resistant and ideal in humid environments.
Bamboo artworks are printed on sustainable grown and harvested 3-ply, 100% bamboo to prevent warping. Wood grain can be seen in lighter areas where ink coverage is minimal. This substrate has a natural strength and resistance to moisture, mold and mildew. This is our most eco-conservative option.
