ILFORD, a leading developer and manufacturer of professional quality media for inkjet printing, graphic arts and colour photographic processes today announces that it is expanding its popular GALERIE Prestige range with the introduction of the new 340gsm Canvas Natural media. Designed in response to customer demand for a canvas with natural looking characteristics, this cotton/polyester blend canvas will complement the bright white distinctiveness of the existing GALERIE Prestige Smooth Fine Art Canvas.

Featuring a matt surface and natural tint, GALERIE Prestige Canvas Natural is free of added optical brightening agents within the coating layer, making it ideal for stunning gallery wraps, exhibition and museum displays or other large format prints. Ideal for pigment based printers, Canvas Natural incorporates an advanced inkjet receiving layer for excellent colour gradation that ensures sharp and vivid images. A sturdy platform with a hefty feel, the 340gsm canvas offers reduced ink bleed and ensures optimal print accuracy. The new canvas media is available in 17”, 24” and 44” rolls to meet the varying demands of both in-studio printers as well as professional photo labs.

Incorporating a 1:1 weave structure for high quality applications, Canvas Natural’s robust, stretchable canvas features solid dimensional stability and contour definition. The dependable material can also be sewn for use as a banner, or for framed art with superior framing performance and decorative effect that is free of edge cracking or damage

“A high quality print mounted on canvas has long been an industry staple. With our new GALERIE Prestige Canvas Natural, we are able to offer our customers the choice of canvas media to meet bright white or more natural look of their creative vision” said Jane Dixon, Director of Global Marketing for ILFORD Imaging. “The versatility of our new Canvas Natural should provide both at-home and in-studio printers, as well as professional labs with a unique deliverable for their most demanding client.”
