DESCRIPTION

17 MIL, 380GSM METALLIC POLY-COTTON INKJET CANVAS FOR SOLVENT, UV, & LATEX INK

Silverada is a "silver metallic" fine art canvas, created from an optimal blend of metallic, silver, and pearlescent surface finishes. This canvas is a revolutionary addition to the industry and can only be found here at Breathing Color. Silverada delivers an extremely high Dmax, wide color gamut, and crisp resolution -- all characteristics that have become the hallmark of the Breathing Color brand.

The intrinsic radiance of Silverada truly shines when the subject matter of the image has bright, translucent, or metallic elements. Black & white images come to life in a whole new way as the gleaming white portion of your prints, in contrast with the rich, glossy blacks, creates a stunning and unique look that is sure to attract attention. Vivid colors, such as those found in HDR photography, illuminate the intended saturation and vibrancy, are dramatically amplified on Silverada.

However you decide to use it, Silverada is certain to add a level of opulence to your canvas prints that has never been attainable until now.

KEY FEATURES

AMAZING IN BLACK & WHITE

Want to see Silverada at it's best? Try printing some black & white images. You won't believe it.

A STANDOUT WITH HDR IMAGES

Bottom line - your HDR images will pop like crazy.

EXCEPTIONAL COLOR GAMUT & DMAX

Your images will pop like you've never seen before on any ordinary canvas print. A similar characteristic that defines Breathing Color inkjet media.

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.

NO CRACKING OR TEARING WHEN STRETCHING

Silverada 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, Silverada prints are highly resistant to scuffing and/or abrasion.

WATER-RESISTANT

Lack of water-resistance is a commonly known problem with most uncoated canvas prints. Not anymore. Silverada delivers an increased level of water-resistance.

EASE OF USE

One of the most compelling aspects of Silverada is its ease of use. Since they require no varnish, Silverada 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.

  1. Canvas sags more in the direction of the weave, typically horizontal
  2. Sagging can happen from under or over tightening
  3. Environment plays a huge part - high constant humidity will relax canvas
  4. For dry environments, spritzing the back of a sagging canvas with hot, distilled water can help re-tighten.
  5. Start stapling on longest dimension & staple clean line. Move to the opposite side, not around the edge of the frame.
  6. Add cross bars and corner keys after full framing.
  7. Putting a bead of archival glue on the bars as you set the edge helps hold tension and keep it all even and flat.
  8. Frame in a high humid environment then move to a drier environment.
  9. More information can be found in this article.

To prevent the transfer of oils and dirt from your hands to the inkjet receptive coating of the media, white cotton gloves should be worn when handling the media. When not using the media, you should store it in its original packaging, exactly how it was shipped to you. Read more about our recommended handling and storage best practices on our blog, The Art of Printmaking.

There are a few different things that can cause banding. Most commonly, you will see banding occur when there is a clogged nozzle or something else hardware related. Please follow the steps below to help identify the issue:

  1. Ensure that your printer can handle the thickness of the media you are attempting to print on. In your printer's user manual, or by calling the manufacture, you can find the maximum weight that your printer will accept; make sure that the media doesn't exceed this maximum specification.
  2. See our blog about doing a nozzle check and other maintainance on your printer.
  3. If the nozzle check results look fine, proceed to check your platen gap settings and making sure other print settings are correct.

While we do not offer any free, small sample strips of paper, we do offer trial rolls (which measure 17 x 10) at our cost for many of our canvas, fine art, and photo papers. These trial rolls can be found and purchased at the bottom of any product page. We also carry the Breathing Color Sample Pack which includes two unprinted letter-sized sheets of six of our most popular fine art papers. We offer samples this way to allow everyone to fully test and evaluate their own prints on Breathing Color media.

For testing and evaluation, we offer short trial rolls of all of our inkjet canvas, inkjet fine art paper, inkjet decor paper, and inkjet signage products that are sold at cost. Typically, trial rolls are 17"x10 feet. The purpose for this is to allow our customers to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of our products, cost effectively. There are several steps that should be taken when testing any new digital substrate for your printing business.

1. The substrate should be tested with several different images to be sure the product performs well with everything image-type that you intend to use it for (try a portrait photograph, a vibrant fine art print, a black & white piece, etc.). Make sure you are selecting images that are fairly different from one another with respect to color and tonal gradation for a thorough evaluation.

2. Show a few of your most important customers a print of their own work on the media you are testing. Maybe provide an example of your current media to illustrate a comparison. Explain the physical and archival attributes of the new substrate and the reasons that you are considering a switch. It is the printmakers job to educate their artists about all things printing-related, especially media.

3. Trial rolls provide enough media to create custom profiles, for those who are capable. Breathing Color also offers a free custom profile service, which requires approximately two square feet of printed media.

4. It is important to have enough media to leave a margin for error in case the first attempt had not been printed correctly (print settings, profile, platen gap, etc.).

5. For inkjet canvas: coating, stretching, and hand embellishment should also be tested.

In addition to trial rolls, Breathing Color offers a complimentary sample pack, which includes printed samples of all available fine art products, with any order (limit one per customer). These sample packs can be purchased separately for $19.95.
