The prints were 3′ x 4′ and printed directly to canvas. The material we used was a 15 mil poly-cotton artisans grade canvas that is perfect for this application. Acid-free, matte canvas that is both fade and water resistant. Because we use an HP Latex 360 printer, we don’t have to treat the print with liquid laminate because the ink is designed to resist the elements. One feature we do offer is to use gel to give the print the appearance of brush strokes. This makes the print look a great deal like an original. The print was stretched over a hardwood frame and assembled with stainless steel hardware. We used stainless steel because the prints were going to be displayed outside for the two week run and we didn’t want them to rust. We also printed one frame using last years design so that the brewery could show the progression of the design. We sprayed the prints with a clear lacquer to prevent the white portion of the print from yellowing.
Overall, these prints will only be displayed for a little over 2 weeks but the look and appearance had to be exact, and it was. We turned these around in a couple of days for our customer.
