Inkjet vs. Solvent Canvas - What's the difference?

Inkjet and Solvent canvas are both composed of the same materials, usually a poly/cotton blend or 100% cotton base.

The difference between the two types of canvas is the coating. Solvent canvas is coated for solvent-based printers, while inkjet canvas is coated specifically for use with inkjet printers. The ink receptive coating helps ink adhere to the surface of your canvas without smudging or run-off.
