2. First class artist’s canvas
. The canvas weighs approx. 350 g/m2.
As a result, it lets very little light through and is very durable. Our canvas
is made from 100% pure cotton without added polyester. As canvas is a natural
product, minor, rare irregularities in the structure and surface are only to be
expected. We also offer a B1 version.
3. Metallic paper
: This paper is finished with a metal foil with
metallically brushed surface features and a beautiful shimmer. A whole range of
motifs complement it perfectly and create a magical image. It is worth noting
that white motif elements are not printed on metallic paper. Instead, the
metallic surface shines through at these points.
(3 mm aluminium composite board): we have two versions on
offer here: a digital white surface like for art prints or the brushed Butler
finish. The effect is similar to metallic paper. An aluminium profile frame is
affixed to the rear for stability. The profile frame is attached with
high-quality, long-life, double-sided adhesive strips from 3M.
(Acrylic 3 mm or 6 mm Plexiglas): the motif is printed directly on
the rear of the Plexiglas panel, then two white layers are applied and the
whole surface is laminated from behind with an opaque PVC material. Only then
is the aluminium profile frame for stability applied. The profile frames are
attached to the surfaces with high-quality, long-life, double-sided adhesive
strips from 3M.
We also offer a scratch-resistant Plexiglas version … please contact our
Customer Service for more information.

The surfaces of the papers (1. and 3.) are very sensitive. Please do not clean
them with wet cloths or aggressive agents.
The canvas (including the varnish) can be wiped with a barely moist microfibre
cloth. Applying a little moisture to the rear of the canvas with a moist cloth
or sponge will cause the canvas to tighten as it dries and make the picture
more stable in the frame again.
The surface of the Plexiglas and Alu-Dibond can also be wiped with a bone-dry
cloth. We print using UV-curing inks to create a good surface hardness. Please
do not clean them using a sponge or other aggressive agents.
We provide the canvasses with a 4 cm white border without stretcher bars as standard.
To ensure the canvas reproduction retains as much of the original’s authenticity as possible, it is recommended that the outer edges of the canvas are not simply left as white, unprinted canvas. By ’mirroring‘ the edges by 5 cm, you can create the ideal picture for display with a strech frame (4cm), without an external frame. For the surcharges for mirroring the edges, please refer to our pricing table.
Our stretcher bars are 100 % natural wood and warp-free. Canvas pictures can be mounted onto 1.9 cm or 4 cm deep stretcher bars. Please specify with your order. With larger pictures we add extra crossbars to reinforce the stretcher frame.
