19 mil matte poly-cotton inkjet canvas for giclee printing
800M Aqueous Matte Canvas is a water-resistant 400gsm bright white poly-cotton blend matte canvas. Specifically designed for the décor giclee print market, the 800M Canvas is a low cost inkjet canvas alternative that still delivers exceptional print quality. The very high white point delivers considerable ‘punch’ to prints but is achieved with the use of OBA’s unlike the archival certified Lyve and Chromata White canvas
Similar to all other high white OBA loaded inkjet canvas the 800M Canvas is suited to shorter-term photography and art reproduction (giclee printing), indoor signage, backdrops and murals where absolute longevity is not the highest priority.
Incredible colour gamut & dmax
800M delivers exceptional colour gamut and dmax, characteristic of all Breathing Color inkjet media.
Maximum white point & dmax
800M is manufactured with large amounts of optical brightener additives (OBA's) which give it an extraordinary white point.
No cracking or tearing when stretching
When varnished with Timeless Gloss, Satin, or Matte, 800M will not crack or tear when stretched.
At Paper & Canvas Ltd we have a great range of stretcher bar options, including quality European pine stretcher bars, the EasyWrappe system and a unique ‘any size’ DIY stretcher system for those custom sized jobs you no longer have to turn away!
All Breathing Color inkjet canvas grades are water resistant. 800M will accept a water based liquid laminate or water based varnish and is compatible with both Timeless and the original Glamour II canvas varnish which provide necessary protection against scratches, scuffs, airborne pollutants and moisture.

Option # 3 - Manage Your Own Colour Professionally
There is only one way to manage your colour workflow and ensure that your prints meet your standards, and that is by managing your own colour. First, your monitor must be calibrated. Then, the media you are using must be profiles for use with your specific printer. Even though we may be able to provide you with a generic icc profile for your printer model, every individual printer "drifts" from this and this is why a generic profile will never deliver 100% accurate results.
The good news is that Xrite, the global leader in colour science, has made this easier and more affordable than ever with their Colormunki Photo product. Colormunki was designed specifically as a completely integrated colour control solution for photographers and printmakers, so that you can get accurate screen to print colour matching, every time.
