DESCRIPTION

21 MIL, 440GSM GLOSS/SATIN POLY-COTTON INKJET CANVAS. OBA-FREE, BRIGHT WHITE

Crystalline is a 440gsm aqueous inkjet canvas that comes pre-made in both gloss and satin finishes. This high performance inkjet canvas should be used with photo black ink and will deliver industry-leading Dmax and color gamut a step above every other glossy or matte inkjet canvas available today. It is ideal for high-end fine art and photography reproduction.

KEY FEATURES

A NEW PLATEAU IN DMAX & COLOR GAMUT

Yep, we did it again. First it was Chromata White (2005), then it was Lyve (2009). Now its Crystalline (2011). You just won't achieve a deeper black or wider color gamut on any other canvas.

OBA-FREE, YET STILL BRIGHT WHITE

Called "Chromata White", this breakthrough technology has set Breathing Color apart for years. Normally, OBA-Free products have a yellowish surface. Our "Chromata White" technology, which we released in 2005, forever changed this by delivering OBA-Free with the desired bright white surface. This answered the needs of our customers to maximize the longevity of their prints while maintaining the most popular and desired look. Crystalline is the only OBA-Free bright white glossy canvas ever developed.

"Chromata White" gives the end-user the most stable platform on which to print photographs and fine art giclees without the metamerism issues or color shift issues inherent on other canvases. Optical Brighteners compromise the attainment of true color, they complicate profiling accuracy, and they inevitably deteriorate and yellow over time. You can read more about OBA's and their long-term effects on inkjet prints.

NO VARNISH REQUIRED

This makes it extremely attractive to printmakers who are new to printing canvas, and especially to those who prefer to avoid the labor-intensive step of varnishing their canvas prints.  

Please note: If you still want to use varnish with 17M, it must be applied using an HVLP spray system.

NO CRACKING OR TEARING WHEN STRETCHING

Crystalline will not crack or tear when stretched, with or without a coat of varnish.  See it for yourself, without any varnish applied, in this  Fold Test.  Learn More:  4 Options for Stretching Canvas Prints .

INCREDIBLE SCUFF RESISTANCE

Even without print varnish, Crystalline prints are highly resistant to scuffing and/or abrasion.  

WATER-RESISTANT

Lack of water-resistance is a commonly known problem with currently available glossy canvas options. Not anymore. Crystalline delivers an increased level of water-resistance.

COLOR CONSISTENCY UNDER DIFFERENT LIGHTING CONDITIONS

Ever noticed how a print can look identical under one light source, yet show remarkable differences in color when viewed under a different light source? This problem is referred to as "metamerism". When OBA's are used in inkjet media, the metamerism problem exacerbates exponentially. Because this product is manufactured OBA-free, you are assured that your prints will look consistent under different lighting conditions.

EASE OF USE

One of the most compelling aspects of Crystalline is its ease of use. Since they require no varnish, Crystalline prints are immediately ready to stretch or mount. With our EasyWrappe  and EasyWrappe Pro  do-it-yourself gallery wrap system, canvas printing just can't get any easier.  

MANUFACTURER-DIRECT

Our proprietary products are very expensive to develop, manufacture and ensure quality. If we sold them through traditional distributors, our products would hands down be the most expensive on the market. Instead, we employ a manufacturer-direct business model that bypasses the middle man and empowers us to provide you with first class, state-of-the-art products at competitive prices. It also allows us to deliver direct, unprecedented service and support for our products. Here's where you can learn 5 Ways to Save Money with Breathing Color.

Print Permanence Testing

Crystalline has been longevity tested and the results are as follows:  When no varnish is applied, Crystalline has a life span of approximately 55 years before deterioration may begin (this is approximately half the life span of our Lyve andChromata White canvases which are both independently archival certified for 100+ years. When our Timeless print varnish is applied, Crystalline's life span will improve to approximately 75 years before deterioration may begin.
