Press release from the issuing company

New Canvas Features Semi-Gloss Satin Surface with Industry-Leading Dmax and Expanded Color Gamut for High Quality Photographic and Fine Art Reproductions 

LONG BEACH, Calif. – Epson America today expanded its portfolio of solvent media with the new Epson® GS Canvas Production Satin. Designed to meet the needs of high volume production applications achieved with Epson SureColor® S-Series solvent printers, GS Canvas Production Satin provides art reproduction houses unmatched image quality at production speeds, while delivering superior resolution and saturation with the traditional look and feel of artist canvas. With an expanded gamut for exceptional colors and industry-leading Dmax for deep, dark blacks, Epson GS Canvas Production Satin is an acid free, lignin free heavyweight cotton-polyester blend ideal for a range of photographic and fine art reproductions.

“We listened to our customers and industry experts – fine artists, professional photographers, museums, gallery owners, and fine art reproduction shops – to develop a high quality canvas available at production pricing that meets even the most demanding requirements,” said Jeff Smith, product manager, Epson America, Inc. “The resulting product is an elegantly textured canvas with a semi-gloss satin surface, extremely bright white point, and expanded color gamut for photographic- and fine art-quality output, at an affordable price.” 

Epson GS Canvas Production Satin is a 16-mil/360 gsm two over one weave of a cotton/polyester blend base. It features a durable satin finish and can be stretched for popular display applications such as gallery wraps and framed prints without the need for additional varnish or top coat applications, saving time and incremental cost.

GS Production Satin media is engineered to offer brilliant image quality and versatility for photographic and fine art reproductions at an affordable price point – up to 33 percent less than most high-end canvas products currently available on the market today.1 GS Production Canvas Satin is currently available in 150-foot roll lengths and in width sizes of 24-inch, 36-inch, 54-inch, and 60-inch starting at $269.00 (estimated street price through authorized Epson Professional Imaging resellers).
