COATING INSTRUCTIONS

While we recommend coating all aqueous canvas prints, Crystalline’s formulation does not require a varnish. 

Important Note: With the Crystalline Canvas, hand-rolling a water-based print varnish is not recommended and will more than likely lift the ink from your print.

EASYWRAPPE INSTRUCTIONS

Be sure to use archival glue and apply to the inside edge of the stretcher bars.

Important Note: It is advised that you staple the edges of the canvas to the back of the EasyWrappe bars. This will prevent the canvas from lifting off the edges of the bars.

Please watch our instructional videos for the stapling method when using our EasyWrappe system:

KEY FEATURES

A NEW PLATEAU IN DMAX & COLOR GAMUT

Yep, we did it again. First it was Chromata White (2005), then it was Lyve (2009). Now its Crystalline (2011). You just won’t achieve a deeper black or wider color gamut on any other canvas.

OBA-FREE, YET STILL BRIGHT WHITE

Called “Chromata White”, this breakthrough technology has set Breathing Color apart for years. Normally, OBA-Free products have a yellowish surface. Our “Chromata White” technology, which we released in 2005, forever changed this by delivering OBA-Free with the desired bright white surface.  This answered the needs of our customers to maximize the longevity of their prints while maintaining the most popular and desired look. Crystalline is the only OBA-Free bright white glossy canvas ever developed.

“Chromata White” gives the end-user the most stable platform on which to print photographs and fine art giclees without the metamerism issues or color shift issues inherent on other canvases. Optical Brighteners compromise the attainment of true color, they complicate profiling accuracy, and they inevitably deteriorate and yellow over time.

NO VARNISH REQUIRED

This makes it extremely attractive to printmakers who are new to printing canvas, and especially to those who prefer to avoid the labor-intensive step of varnishing their canvas prints.  

NO CRACKING OR TEARING WHEN STRETCHING

Crystalline will not crack or tear when stretched, with or without a coat of varnish.

INCREDIBLE SCUFF RESISTANCE

Even without print varnish, Crystalline prints are highly resistant to scuffing and/or abrasion.  

WATER-RESISTANT

Lack of water-resistance is a commonly known problem with currently available glossy canvas options. Not anymore. Crystalline delivers an increased level of water-resistance.

COLOR CONSISTENCY UNDER DIFFERENT LIGHTING CONDITIONS

Ever noticed how a print can look identical under one light source, yet show remarkable differences in color when viewed under a different light source? This problem is referred to as “metamerism”. When OBA’s are used in inkjet media, the metamerism problem exacerbates exponentially. Because this product is manufactured OBA-free, you are assured that your prints will look consistent under different lighting conditions.

EASE OF USE

One of the most compelling aspects of Crystalline is its ease of use.  Since they require no varnish, Crystalline prints are immediately ready to stretch or mount.

MANUFACTURER-DIRECT

Our proprietary products are very expensive to develop, manufacture and ensure quality. If we sold them through traditional distributors, our products would hands down be the most expensive on the market. Instead, we employ a a manufacturer-direct business model that bypasses the middle man and empowers us to provide you with first class, state-of-the-art products at competitive prices. It also allows us to deliver direct, unprecedented service and support for our products.

PRINT PERMANENCE TESTING

Crystalline has been longevity tested and the results are as follows:  When no varnish is applied, Crystalline has a life span of approximately 55 years before deterioration may begin (this is approximately half the life span of our Lyve and Chromata White canvases which are both independently archival certified for 100+ years. When our Timeless print varnish is applied, Crystalline’s life span will improve to approximately 75 years before deterioration may begin.
