Choose one of these popular papers to make your photo or art work look its best

Vibrance photo luster, matte or gloss paper

Produces the widest range of colors and the densest black for vivid color reproduction. This paper looks most like actual photographs and is a popular standard for most of our photography gallery work.

Vibrance Luster: 

Anything but commonplace.  A photo paper but something more.  A silky finish playfully teasing the light.  A delicate texture alive and mercurial.  A quicksand image dragging you ever deeper into imagination.  For images that will be seen, shared, and cherished Vibrance Luster is a celebration and the icing on the cake.

Vibrance Matte:

Our most economical substrate hits on all points.  Durable, pliable, and the right weight for yielding drape.  The smooth, luxurious surface renders prints that are approachable and tactile.  For art, photography, and everything in between – beauty in simplicity.

Vibrance Gloss:

It may be a photographer’s most used paper, but there’s nothing common about our Vibrance Gloss.  Developed for the discerning photographer who demands the greatest color gamut, dmax, and image resolution available without compromise, Vibrance Gloss features a cockle-free RC base that imparts luxurious feel and a mirror-like sheen.  For maximum ink coverage on an instant dry surface look no further.

Vibrance Metallic Paper

Reimagine your photography.  Print on a photo paper that conveys more than what you see on the glowing screen.  For black and white, high contrast, landscape, and dramatic portraiture Vibrance Metallic adds the finest edge and a hint of flair.  Serious yet expressive, powerful and breathtaking, a little bit of shimmer, sure to engage.

River Stone Satin Rag Paper

Recall a time when a captured thought was refined in the solitude of the darkroom.  Look through the aperture.  Dodge and burn.  Illuminate the image within.  River Stone Satin Rag is an homage to the craft of photo processing and all its unflinching apostles.  With rich blacks, immense shadow detail, and the subtlest of texture, each print celebrates dense beauty and striking metaphor.  River Stone Satin Rag is the only paper for images with centrality, gravity, and secrets within.

Fine art textured watercolor paper 600MT

The eye lingers and scans, decoding the traveled depths of an image that seems to float just above the surface of comprehension.  A change of perspective.  Shadow and light.  Our most robustly textured watercolor paper for a sumptuous display that resists scuffing and flaking like no other.

Lyve Canvas printing

The realization of our pursuit for the perfect fine art canvas.  Lyve builds on the legacy of the world’s first OBA-free canvas with superior resolution, greater dmax and a wider color gamut.

Featuring the highest archivability of any canvas, The Fine Art Trade Guild awarded Lyve the exclusive Blue Wool certification for 100 years display life.  Lyve is not only the finest canvas we offer, but the best money can buy.  For art that is living – an image that is Lyve.

Bring us your art in any form or size and we will reproduce it to your needs. Continue to paint on the print to make it unique.

Wrapped edge styles

  1. Usually, we make a mirror copy around the outer edge of your image that wraps around the sides of the stretcher bar. This makes it look as though your image continues around the sides to the back of the frame, but does not use up any of your image. This is usually the best way to print it for stretching. From the sides, you will see what looks like a continuation of the image as shown on the right.
  2. We can also add a black or white border to your image that wraps around the sides that are not facing the viewer. From the sides, the edges of your image will be all black or all white.
  3. Use the image to continue around the sides to behind the print. However, this will use up the sides of your image so that the area visible from the front will be reduced (so that it looks like it is cropped).

All canvases that are printed large enough to allow, will be finished with a ‘Gallery Wrap’ corner that is folded professionally so it does not show at the sides.

Silverado No-Lam Canvas

A gleaming pearl is born from a simple grain of sand.  What is to be transfigured starts as a nuisance, a frustration, a distraction.  A needle caught in the throat.  Here we have it.  The unending trials of a quiet milieu, a sorrow unspeakable, a joy that must be shared – a white hot ember that burrows deep and catalyzes something inexpressible.  With lens and brush you capture it.  With roll and ream you share it.  And here’s your silver bullet – a glowing canvas.  A beacon reflecting the golden light.

Canvas stretching

We can stretch any canvas around our high-quality custom molding.

Cost is $11.50 CI ($14.03 USD) per linear foot of standard 7/8″ molding and $13.00 CI ($15.85 USD) per foot for 2″ molding (needed for large canvas or preferred for the artistic effect of a thicker molding).

Measure the size of the image that you want showing. Remember that it takes about two inches of material to wrap around the molding. If there is less, it can still be stretched and stapled to the side of the molding rather than the back. If there is an all or partial white border showing along the sides of the frame, some people then paint this black or a matching colour so that it looks better.

Canvas is professionally folded around the corners in the technique called “Gallery wrap.”

Stretching prices includes hanger and rubber spacers on the bottom corners to protect your wall.

Insignia Scrim Vinyl

Tired of banner that cracks, flakes, and fades?  By embedding a tear resistant polyester fabric between two layers of durable PVC and topping it with Breathing Color’s industry celebrated inkjet coating, we developed a banner material that is smooth and flexible but still water resistant and durable.  No phthalates and non-migrating plasticizer mean a chemically stable banner that won’t off-gas and deteriorate as soon as it’s mounted.  Non-glare and opaque.  Sew or grommet.  Cold-laminate for enduring displays.
