Why print on inkjet canvas? In terms of artist reproductions the answer is simple. By printing on canvas artists are able to reproduce an image quality on canvas that looks similar to actual paintings. These prints in comparison to the actual artist’s renderings are often unrecognizable. Many artists choose to print on canvas because they wish to make prints as much like the original as possible, allowing them to obtain additional revenue for their artwork beyond their original pieces. Because canvas is generally more expensive than photo paper and carries a higher traditional value, canvas is a great option for digital artist reproductions as well. Giclee printing is one of the least understood printing options. The term giclee literally means 'to spray,' in French to English translation. Giclee was derived from the first Iris printers that sprayed ink on media. With the introduction of inkjet printers the name stuck and became synonymous with printing in fine art applications. Printing Giclee on canvas is really not much different than photo printing. One misconception is that one must be a print master to be able to print a high quality giclee print. However, with the recent advancements in technology and the creation of ICC profiles for printers and multiple paper type the process has become much easier over the years. Many of these ICC profiles can be found on the IT Supplies website and or on manufacturers websites. Offer studio customers another option for photographic prints. Printing photos on canvas gives your photograph a traditional artistic look and make great gifts for weddings to senior pictures and other studio prints. Why pay $99 at a print house when you can produce better quality prints on your own and at 50% of production price. Start creating your limited edition prints from your own studio and pass the savings along to your customers while earning more revenue on your prints. If you’re an artist there is no reason not to print on inkjet canvas. Get more out of your original artwork and photographs by printing on canvas!
