By selecting your combination of canvas options, weaves, and water-based varnishes, you can tailor each piece to provide your clients with limited-edition wall art.

Giclée Printed Canvas

Our Giclée Printed Canvas is a fantastic option when looking for a direct-to-canvas printing method similar to our Premium Fine Art Canvas products.

Finishing options for this style of Portrait Canvas include a water-based varnish, matte or semi-gloss.

    Peeled and Pressed Canvas

    Peeled and Pressed canvas is a traditional, classic print-making process where you get a choice of canvas weave. We peel the emulsion off the base paper by hand and press it onto the cotton canvas with heat and pressure, revealing the texture of the canvas. Still, it offers a final product with sharp images, crisp lines, and excellent color reproduction. In addition, the process for this product ensures the highest quality dmax, providing deeper shadows and brighter whites for a high-end base paper that is split and pressed.

    This product is available in two canvas weaves:

    • 10 oz. (thicker)
    • 7 oz. (thinner)

    The Peeled and Pressed Canvas also comes in your choice of water-based varnish, matte or semi-gloss.

      Hand-Applied Varnish

      Each Portrait Canvas has a varnish hand-applied to it, helping preserve and enhance the quality and detail of the product. In addition, it will protect from UV light which, over time, can alter the canvas print quality.

      Our Portrait Canvas comes with the option of being finished with a matte or semi-gloss varnish. The Breathing Color Timeless Matte Varnish is available on both Giclée and Peeled and Pressed Canvas options, providing two coats of a quick curing varnish. The Clearshield Canvas Guard Semi-Gloss Varnish is available on the Giclée Canvas and has two coats applied to the print.

      The Peeled and Pressed canvas option's semi-gloss option is made with a matte coat first applied to the canvas and then topped with two coats of PremierArt Gloss ECO Print Shield Semi-Gloss Varnish.
