Crystalline Canvas

The Crown Jewel
Crystalline no varnish canvas is the result of a multi-year research and development project aimed at bringing printmakers a canvas that is durable enough to be stretched without the application of varnish.  

We launched Breathing Color’s Crystalline canvas in 2012 and it has stood the test of time as it is still the only premium bright white (yet optical brightener free) no varnish canvas on the market.

Crystalline gloss canvas has industry leading color density and D-Max due to its high gloss finish. If you prefer a finish that’s slightly more subdued and has less glare under direct lighting, then Crystalline Satin canvas may be more your style. 

Whatever your preference, Crystalline canvas is the fastest way to get a canvas print out the door while maintaining the stunning quality Breathing Color products are known for.
