Glossy canvas is another one to look out for. It looks tacky but some of competitors use it simply because they think they can get away without laminating it.
A non-glossed canvas with laminate will always give a superior end result; and that’s what we do.
We don’t do short-cuts, we print and laminate on a high-quality, archival non-glossed canvas to achieve maximum quality.
So not only do we use a brand-name canvas, that’s independently tested, it’s weight (gsm) is much higher than many other canvases on the market meaning it’s going to last.

The poly / cotton canvas has a more uniform texture – great for photographs
So why do I hear that 100% cotton is better than poly / cotton?
It’s common to hear that a 100% cotton canvas is better than a poly/cotton blend. It’s really a matter of opinion and application.
Unfortunately, there are many CHEAP poly/cotton blends out there and those canvases are really the bad apple that ruined the cart, with customers demanding 100% cotton for fear of getting a cheap poly/cotton blend. A HIGH QUALITY poly/cotton blend that is OBA-free and independently tested for archival quality is just as good as a high quality 100% cotton canvas.
