Parrot Print Canvas Specifications
We started Parrot Print because we couldn’t find a canvas print product with specifications that met our own high expectations. When you buy from us, you’re purchasing a premium product that has been made using a process that was designed with quality in mind. Whatever size or shape of the canvas print you order, you can expect:
- Award-winning museum archival grade heavyweight canvas of 420gsm poly/cotton blend
- 100 years fade resistant inks to prolong the appearance of your print
- A hand laminated finish using fine art satin print varnish that has been archival certified by the Fine Art Trade Guild, providing UV protection and colour enhancement and preventing wear
- Solid 38mm deep pine frames made from environmentally sustainable wood, with your image wrapped according to your personal preference and all staples and corner wedges hidden from view.
We’re proud to be colour management and large format print specialists and use a state-of-the-art colour managed digital production system to produce your custom canvas prints. Our colour profiles are custom created to give the most accurate print results for your wall art. They are regularly checked and updated to give optimal colour accuracy. We can supply the ICC printer profile of your order if required, please email us with any queries.
For more information about colour management of your canvas prints, read our introduction to colour management.
We use the best printing and finishing techniques and materials to ensure your canvas prints look the same in years to come as they do the day they are delivered. To help keep them looking their best, we recommend you don’t hang prints in direct sunlight or outdoors. You should also avoid hanging in very humid areas (eg. your shower room).
Caring for your canvas prints is extremely simple – just wipe clean with a slightly damp cloth or dust with an artist’s brush. You should never spray water directly onto your print and should avoid it coming into contact with harsh chemicals. If you need to store your or transport your print, we recommend wrapping in acid-free craft paper or bubble wrap. You may also want to box your print, so that it doesn’t have a lot of weight placed directly on top of it.
If you have any questions about the design and print process we follow at Parrot Print or want to have any queries about how you can keep your custom canvas print looking its best, please get in touch.
