It becomes more and more obvious that most of our competitors do not actually use any varnish on their canvas prints. Some do offer varnishing but at an extra cost. This is actually quite shocking to me, knowing how important this part of the canvas photo printing process is. There is more information on the varnish in 'canvas printing process' section of our website. However, just a quick reminder why it is so important:
- varnish improves colour appearance, as it increases colour density, does a really nice job, especially on the darker colours,
- protects from UV - which stops canvas from yellowing and colours from fading,
- protect against humidity, allows for the canvas to be wiped with a damp cloth,
- it also prevents the canvas from scratching the ink off and chipping.
Remember that we use varnish on all our canvases - as we do care about the longevity of your canvas prints.
