Sorry, Product Not Available!


When Hahnemuhle discontinued their wonderful Monet canvas, we evaluated all the options from Ilford, Canson, etc etc. as replacements for our own fine art printing service. 

Lyve was our 2nd best choice canvas - the print quality is exceptionally good with it.  However, it's ink adherence is not quite as good as Hahnemuhle Daguerre, so we chose that in the end after an extensive test period.  With Lyve you do really need to coat your prints to avoid smudges with heavily inked areas (as is that case with most canvasses, but not the Hahnemuhle).

Please note: This clearance product is a sample roll that was used for product evaluation. There is approx 3/4+ of roll remaining on the 12m roll. Usually $230, now only $15. 

Please note - As usual, we can not accept any returns or exchanges on clearance products.

An award-winning inkjet canvas by Breathing Color that provides great colour gamut and dmax combined with inkjet archival certification.

You can apply a laminate to the canvas without having to worry and get the exceptional standard you're looking for in fine art and photography printmaking.

The Lyve™ Inkjet Canvas is a 19 mil bright white, consistent poly-cotton blend matte canvas using an acid-free, neutral pH coating. "Chromata White" inkjet technology gives end-users the most stable platform on which to print photographs and fine art giclees without the metamerism issues or colour shift issues inherent on other inkjet canvases. Optical Brighteners compromise the attainment of true colour, they complicate profiling accuracy, and they inevitably deteriorate and yellow over time.The water resistant surface works exceptionally well with Glamour II Varnish, a proprietary water-based top coat coating designed specifically for the Breathing Color line of inkjet canvas. If coated, this canvas will not crack even under extremely rigorous stretching conditions (canvas gallery wrap) and contains an acid-free, neutral pH coating.
