Using Timeless on other Canvas

Would you recommend Timeless for other brands of Canvas or should it only be used with BC canvases?

Hey Justin... I couldn't find your email.  I've been having trouble with emails sent from my home.  Could you forward it to  Thanks.

Thanks Justin... I may try Chromata - but now that I'm used to Lyve, not sure I can go 'backwards'. ;)

I haven't seen your email yet.  I'll have to check when I get to the studio later.  Whatever it is, thank you for your followup.

I'd recommend that you give Chromata a try. While you may not want to use it to replace your usual Lyve, I think you will still love the way Chromata looks as well. Lyve is kind of Chromata's "Version 2", we just didn't want to name it that. 

Chromata is also OBA-free and archival certified for 100+ years. It even has the same base as Lyve, so they will stretch very similarly. We made some modifications to the ink receptive coating that allow Lyve to achieve slightly higher Dmax, saturation, and color gamut.

I replied to your email about the Lyve issue, did you get my response?

They didn't have any Lyve, which is what I prefer.  I have a job that needs to be reprinted ASAP so that's why I was asking.  I may have to resort to something else for this job, but want to stick with an OBA free product and I'm now comfortable with stretching the Lyve too.  

BTW, I sent you email about a problem I was having.

Hey Mike,

Timeless can work well with other water-resistant canvases. It is developed specifically to work with BC product, so I would definitely recommend using Timeless with our canvas first and foremost.

Amplis didn't have any Chromata?
