Heirloom Charts Canvas & Printing Information
At Heirloom Charts we only provide the most durable and long lasting products available.
At Heirloom Charts, we recommend using poly cotton canvas. We believe it is a superior product and produces a superior finish. we use a canvas that has a base weight of 356 gsm has a high quality matte finish and is pH neutral (acid free). Designed for long-term, fade resistant fine art or photo re-productions when imaged with the UV pigment inks. It has 100 + year image stability. Unlike 100% cotton canvas, there is less chance of the canvas actually sagging over time. The poly/cotton canvas we use is formulated to be inkjet receptive with a special emulsion designed to accept the latest high technology pigmented inks.
100% Natural Raw Cotton Canvas
Heirloom Charts also offers the choice of 100% natural, raw, cotton canvas or poly cotton canvas for your family tree chart. The natural cotton canvas we use has large amounts of visual texture. It is unbleached raw artists canvas which is 100%. It is close to identical to most of the canvas used in the screen printing process and has no added fluorescent optical brightening agents. It has a matte finish and reflects less light than the poly/cotton canvas the end result is an organic textural finish that feels natural to touch. The weight of the cotton canvas is 390gsm. You have the choice of having your canvas with or without a UV protective coating. At Heirloom Charts we highly recommend coating all canvas, as it creates a more durable product.
