Canvas Prints

Post by Nathan Johns » Tue Aug 16, 2011 4:01 pm

I have been printing canvas for a while now and have tried various materials, but can't get the best results. What does everyone else use?

I've had some good results with the satin art canvas from All Print Supplies on my VersaCamm - reasonably priced as well ;)

Eric, I will back you up on this one. The canvas is also a really good bright white making your images pop out.

Hi Nathan, the two main types of digital art canvas are as follows:

100% natural cotton, coated textile.

This is very similar to traditional artist canvas, has a natural weave and a warm matt white colour.

Acrylic Coated Polyester / Cotton

This is a brighter white satin finish art canvas that tends to give the print a finer definition and more vibrant colour.


A Roland will print exeptionally well on either of these but with differing end results. Al lot of it comes down to personal preference at the end of the day.

Hope this helps

Place your foam rubber on the floor or a table. Put your coated screen frame over it on the inside side of the frame, leaving the flat top pointing up. Put your transparency upside down on top of the screen. Put your piece of glass over the transparency down, and weight it at the edges with books or some other heavy objects. If you have ink cans, they will do fine because they are heavy. Hang your light source about 18 inches above your screen and turn it on for recommended exposure time. Develop with warm water. If your screen doesn't develop, use more water pressure. If your emulsion comes off too easily, increase your exposure time.

Cheers!!!
