Manufactured in the UK, the piece is pressed on 510 grams per square metre (gsm) textured PVC banner. The heavier the gsm, the more rigid and more substantial feel the paper provides. Our Textured PVC banner weighs at 510gsm which is the premium standard quality. It has a tactile feel but still has a bend to it.
The skilfully-constructed canvas has a beautifully textured finish with a heavyweight waterproof protection for longevity. We achieve incredible detail using neo-pigment eco-inks with a great tonal range, offering an almost 3D effect making it a great choice for our F1 print. The inks contain enhanced light stabilisers, offering far more durability than dye-based alternatives and will protect the vibrancy of your prints for over 100 years when kept in appropriate conditions.
Our A0 range has been created via digital printing that offers extra-fine image resolution and helps retain a higher degree of detail from the original artwork. The piece is framed top and bottom with varnished softwood batons.
