Epson Exhibition Canvas Natural



Epson’s Exhibition Canvas Natural is a new extension of their Signature Worthy Papers. The Canvas Natural is similar to the rest of the Epson Exhibition Canvas, yet has slight differences. The Natural Canvas uses a coating without employing optical brightening agents (OBAs). This achieves maximum longevity with your prints, while still getting a nice white point to the canvas. It is available in three versions: Matte, Satin, and Gloss. All the Epson Exhibition Canvas standard versions will still be readily available from IT Supplies.

 After doing some testing on the Exhibition Canvas Matte Natural and the Exhibition Canvas Satin Natural, I’ve been pretty pleased with the results. I was able to get the same vibrant colors with the Natural Canvas that I had been getting with the standard version. Coating and stretching were also a breeze when working with the matte canvas. After printing, I let the canvas dry for a few hours. I then rolled Clearshield Type C Satin Coating over the canvas with no issues. However, on the satin canvas, some of the ink rubbed off on the roller as I was coating. I’d recommend rolling the coating on lightly when working with the Satin and Gloss canvas or using a HVLP spray system instead. 

Lastly, the Satin Canvas Natural was thinner and more flexible than the Standard Satin version. The Natural version was much more flexible, making it easier to stretch around stretcher bars.

All three versions of the new Epson Exhibition Canvas Natural are available and shipping today. It is sold in 13”, 17”, 24”, 36”, 44”, and 60” rolls as well as 17”x22” cut sheets.
