Scott Leggo’s canvas prints represent the finest standard in photographs on canvas. They are archival and come stretched and framed, ready to hang on your wall.
The Canvas is 100% cotton heavyweight canvas that’s recognised as the world’s leading fine art canvas. This archival quality canvas, that enables fantastic colour and definition, is featured in well-known art galleries and art museums around the world.
The canvas is printed with genuine Epson Ultrachrome inks, producing bright, vibrant colours that jump off the canvas. Time after time, clients comment on how stunning our colours are compared with prints seen elsewhere. The inks used have been independently tested to last 75 years without fading by the world’s leading authority on ink stability (The Wilhelm Institute). This is essential as trials of lower quality inks have shown significant fading after just 12 months in normal light.
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, bums and scratches. This means that your print lasts longer and can be carefully cleaned with water.
The frame (aka stretcher bars) is one of the most important components of your canvas print. The kiln-dried Meranti timber used for Scott’s prints costs 40% more than pine, but offer better resistance to twisting, warping and other defects. The timber used is straight-grained, uniform in appearance and sourced from renewable forests. This means that in 30 years your Scott’s canvas print will look as good as the day it was purchased. Scott’s canvas frames are produced in a molding facility that allows both sides of the timber to be profiled. This means your prints sit perfectly flat against the wall and show no visible framing line on the front of the canvas.
Your canvas 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. You print is then shipped ready to hang straight from the box.
