The next-generation of Sunset Select Gloss Canvas from LexJet is now available. Sunset Select Gloss Canvas produces vibrant, richly detailed color photographs and art reproductions with the newest generation of wide-gamut, wide-format aqueous-ink inkjet printers.
LexJet Sunset Select Gloss Canvas is a heavyweight (430g), bright white, poly/cotton blend canvas with a relatively smooth Oxford 2-over 1 weave that is ideal for reproducing detail in printed photos and art. Combined with the high-gloss, ink-receptive surface coating, Sunset Select Gloss Canvas produces the wide color gamut and exceptional Dmax needed to reveal many of the subtle details in shadows and highlights in photographs.
“We have used LexJet products for many years and were thrilled to receive the new Sunset Select Gloss Canvas,” explains Tyler Kennedy, marketing director for art-publishing company Solstice Arts in Berthoud, Colo. “Personal-Prints.com is a company owned and operated by a family of artists, and we are very particular about what papers and canvases we use for printing our hand-painted images. It didn’t take any convincing for us to unanimously decide that this canvas is the perfect backdrop for all of our canvas printing. The intensity of the white point makes our images practically pop off the canvas, as the colors show up in their true vivid and intense hue.”
Because the canvas is water resistant and easy to stretch, it is perfect for use in photo labs and printmaking service bureaus that produce high volumes of photo canvases or giclée prints. The acid-free, pH-neutral coating on Sunset Select Gloss coating helps ensure images printed with today’s pigment inks will continue looking good for decades. For additional protection against humidity, abrasion, and UV light the prints can be varnished with either LexJet Sunset Gloss or Sunset Satin Coatings.
