Which media to choose for a fine art print: canvas, cotton rag, photo paper, litho realistic… ?

Not all media are available for all images, but are chosen to match the image. We print our fine art work on an eight color HP z6600 which has wide-gamut and archival .

Add a note with your order for border treatment or special considerations.


We use HP Professional Matte canvas and coat with EcoCoat for protection from scuffs. http://www.wilhelm-research.com/hp/WIR_HP_Z6200_2017_03_08.pdf

Stretched Canvas

Stretched canvas is an archival print on standard 3/4″ bars. Sides can be black, mirrored or overprinted, with mirrored being default. Stretched canvas is shipped ready to hang and a frame is not required, but can also be framed if you desire. Size can be an issue with postage costs, so we also provide canvas on a roll which will need to be stretched.

Gallery Wrapped Canvas

Gallery wrapped canvas is on wider 1.5 inch bars and also hang ready. Sides are black, overprinted or mirrored. This option is not intended to be framed.

Canvas on a Roll

Canvas Print on a roll and ready to stretch

Fine art papers

Choose canvas or paper options: Canvas: Stretched (3/4\\”) and gallery wrapped (1.5\\”) canvas are ready to hang; canvas on a roll will require stretching but is easier to ship; default edge is mirrored. Paper prints for framing: Litho is a warm and smooth fine art paper; Super Heavyweight Matte is cool and great for pop art; Photo papers are available in gloss or satin (add preference in order notes; Cotton rag in smooth or textured finishes is your choice for extreme archival quality.
