Artshield UV laminates
Each canvas image is coated with either Artshield Satinex UV, or Artshield Mattex UV laminates. Both laminates are designed to protect your print from dust, humidity, ultraviolet, and surface scuffs. The final result looks great, and stays that way for a long time.
- Satinex has a glossy, punchy finish and is our recommended coating for 95% of the images we print. It looks great with light and dark images and enhances the black and shadow areas of your image. Under most lighting conditions, this coating is not too glossy.
- Mattex looks more consistent and even under all kinds of different lighting. Choose this laminate if the lighting conditions are extremely difficult and you don’t mind more muted colours and less dense blacks.
- Uncoated canvases are also offered on limited case by case basis. If you’re a painter that will be painting over the bare canvas, or if you’re a mixed-media artist that will be embellishing your canvas print with paint or collage work, then uncoated may be a suitable option.
Choose Satin, Matte, or uncoated.
Satin is our most popular choice.
