Scott Leggo’s archival canvas prints represent the finest standard in photography on canvas. They come ready to hang on your wall.
The Canvas is 100% cotton heavyweight canvas that is the world’s leading fine art canvas. This archival quality canvas enables fantastic colour and definition and is featured in well known art galleries and art museums around the world.
Your canvas is printed with genuine Epson Ultrachrome inks, producing bright, vibrant colours. Time after time, clients comment on how stunning our colours are compared with prints seen elsewhere. The inks have been independently tested to last 75 years without fading by the world’s leading authority on ink stability (The Wilhelm Institute).
Laminating your print
Your canvas print is laminated with a liquid coating that is sprayed over the top of the printed canvas providing a fully sealed barrier that protects your print. This provides protection against dust, water and inquisitive fingers as well as extra protection from fading, abrasion, bumps and scratches. This means that your print lasts longer and can be carefully cleaned with a damp soft cloth.
The frame (aka stretcher bars) is one of the most important components of your canvas print. The kiln dried Meranti timber used costs 40% more than pine, but offers better resistance to twisting, warping and other defects. The timber used is straight grained, uniform in appearance and sourced from renewable forests. The frames are produced in a moulding facility that allows both sides of the timber to be profiled. This means your prints sit flat against the wall and show no visible framing line on the front of the canvas.
Your print is finished to an equally high standard, including carefully trimming the excess canvas at the back of the frame, taping of the back of the print and inserting hooks and cord for hanging. Prior to shipping, your print is carefully hand taped using 100% acid free framer’s tape. Your print is then shipped ready to hang straight from the box.
