I think I received a bad roll of canvas. I use two different types of canvas at the moment: Epson's Water Resistant Canvas by PremierArt and LexJet's Instant Dry Satin Canvas. The prints on the LexJet ID Satin Canvas look fine right after being printed but within a couple of hours they all seem to exhibit a green shift and the blacks lighten up noticeably. For example, the print of Leanna that I'm "posing" with in the photo to the left now appears to have a yellow-green cast to it and the blacks are no where near as black as they appear in this photo. BTW, I accidentally had my camera set to "high colour" so everything looks a bit more saturated than it should. Anyhow, this colour shift doesn't appear with Epson's Water Resistant Canvas. Lexjet's canvas was recommended by a Lexjet sales representative and though I remembered asking him to drop this canvas from the order as Epson was giving away free cutter blades with every two rolls of their PremierArt canvas purchased that was 17" or larger, the canvas still managed to stay in the order. I guess I wasn't as explicit as I could have been when saying that I didn't want to even try the Lexjet canvas at this time. Anyhow, I was shipped and billed for the canvas. Beyond this colour shift, the canvas is great but that's a pretty big exception. I'll wait until Monday to see whe my sales rep has to say about this colour shift. I received a call last week from LexJet regarding one of my media rolls having a fault in the coating. It was about the ImagePro Satin 8mil paper. Being kind of curious, I thought I'd try the paper anyway. It worked great . . . no colour shifting, excellent colour and touchability, nice gloss. Perhaps they got the two "satins" confused. =P Perhaps that's the case . . . hopefully. Because the landed cost of this roll of canvas was actually higher than Epson's Premier Art water resistant stuff and it's definitely not performing as well.
More about the print: it's a 20 x 26-ish inch print with 2" borders on canvas. It's a very late Christmas present for Leanna. I intend to stretch the final print once I figure out what's up with this canvas. Sorry for the delay, Leanna.
Heheh . . . it's better now . . . and I stretched it on stretcher bars and sprayed it with this matte finish protective spray. But I think I may have screwed up the print some how . . . seems like while I was stretching it I abrased the surface somehow around the corners. I think I may keep the current print for the studio and make you a new one.
