Printing Process: American MadeEco-Friendly

We are using state of the art 12 color large format Canon Printers which were designed for fine art Giclee reproduction for the professional photographer and artist. The Canon 12 Color Printer is capable of printing millions of different colors in high resolution. Our printers produce a 4 Pico Liter droplet that is applied in a dithering pattern which gives us the ability to create art with the finest detail available in ink jet printing today.

Canons 12 color printer also has a High Precision Printing Format. This is an exclusive process that Canon developed for Fine Art Giclee reproductions, it was intended for professional artist and photographers who were using high resolution cameras or fine art images with extra fine detail that would be willing to pay for the slower processing. This option has been heralded by professionals as their clear choice when printing fine art.

Print My Photo On Canvas gives all our customers the HIGH PRECISION PRINTING FORMAT when their print size qualifies with 150 PPI or better at no additional charge. This state of the art process actually changes the order of how the colors are put down, it applies all the darker colors first and then applies the lighter colors over them. It also significantly increases dot placement accuracy. The advantages of this process are increase detail in fine lines, text & graphics detail, increases color saturation (enhances colors) and improves the image surface and appearance by reducing uneven gloss surface finish (gloss differentials).

Print Heads

New Canon PF-05 heads are at the pinnacle of inkjet printhead development and are on the leading edge in inkjet printing technology. The 12 color 1” wide dual head printing process is an unmatched state of the art ink jet printing process.

Each head has 2560 nozzles for each color (12 colors) and a grand total of 30,720 nozzles. These ultra precision printhead nozzles produce an ink droplet placement of 4 Pico droplet Liter. This new printhead design is a major factor in Canons ability to produce the most demanding color and or black white images with the highest degree of resolution and fine detail that others cannot achieve.

Pigment ink cartridges. American MadeEco-Friendly

Canon's Lucia EX ink cartridges maintain their brilliance up to 95 years, and are made in the USA and 100% biodegradable. It is water based and has no detrimental environmental impact. The new formulation increases the color gamut by 20%. All 12 colors of Canon's inks have smaller pigment particles and the polymer encapsulation has been increased significantly. By reducing the sizes of the pigment particles Canon reduced the reflection scatter which increases the color saturation. The polymer encapsulation significantly improved the adhesion which improved the scratch resistance surface significantly. These changes also decreased the gloss differential, bronzing, and assist in maintaining precise small dots that don't bleed on media which again increases extremely fine detail capabilities.

Lucia EX Ink has an archival rating 95 years. WIR (Wilhelm Image Research Inc.) is the worlds leading independent permanence testing laboratory and have done extensive testing of many inks for inkjet printers and have found that Canons Lucia EX Ink has a permanence rating of 95 years for color images and 200 years for black and white images. This far exceeds other inks. They also found that Canon prints were very resistant to damage from high humidity, ozone exposure, and water damage. According to WIR “whether printed in color or black and white, the prints are beautiful – and will remain beautiful - for a very long period of time” said Henry Wilhelm, President, Wilhelm Image Research.

This blend ensures that your picture will have the sharpest resolution, no ink bleed, and brightest colors while maintaining the look and feel of 100% cotton artist canvas. We give our customers their choice of satin and gloss finish on all pieces.

Stretcher Bar Frame Eco-Friendly

Stretcher Bars are 100% kilned dried pine with a minimum moisture content of 10%. Our supplier takes pine and finger joints the mitered ends. We use a relief profile edge that is radiused so that there is absolutely no chance of the image ever having a ghosting impression on the canvas. All frames that have a measurement of 30" or more in one or more lengths will be braced to eliminate any possibility of weight sag, and or canvas shrinkage that can be experienced in frames that are not braced over a period of time. All corners are mitered, and finger joined assembled. We then insert mechanical fasteners at each 45 degree joint as an additional safeguard. We do not anticipate you ever needing wedges but if you desire wedges we will send them with your order free of charge.

The back of your stretched canvas will present itself equally as well as the front. We use all stainless steel staples that will not rust, corrode or stain. All canvas is trimmed and dressed out with black artistry tape. This not only presents itself well it serves as a preventive measure to canvas coming unraveled and or looking haggard over a long period of time.
