Materials that Go the Distance
We back our team with the best equipment in the business.
Always have. Always will.
Every APC canvas is created using:
Professional-grade printers for the crème de la crème of printing. We’re talking colors, shadows and highlights that reach out and grab you.
Archival and pigmented water-based inks for vivid, accurate colors that resist the tug of time. That’s not all; these fancy inks illuminate subtle shades and tones for more depth and complexity than an open mike poetry slam.
Herculean 19 to 21 mil thick, brilliant white poly/cotton canvas materials. They’re ultra DMAX so colors trip like Alice in Wonderland and blacks print as dark as Darth Vader on a moonless night. Oh, did we mention our Classic canvas also has the seal of approval from the Fine Art Trade Guild and is OBA-free, so there are no chemical additives that could make your colors yellow with time.
The Mac Daddy of finishes and archival UV topcoats. Deluxe or Classic, every canvas is shielded to resist UV fading, moisture and abrasion.
Over-achieving color management tools so every color in an APC canvas is precisely as it should be. How can we be so sure your canvas colors will be true? We use the danger duo of color management: computer monitor calibration and color management software for our printers. For our computer monitors, we employ the i1 system by x-Rite. For our printers, we use specialty RIP (Raster Image Processor) software — that’s regularly updated by our color management experts to create custom profiles made specifically for our printers, inks, canvases and coatings.
