Special note about canvas top coats:

  • As opposed to the display of photographic inkjet prints in traditional frames behind glass, prints made on inkjet canvas are usually presented in a “gallery wrap” format and can be either framed or unframed, but traditionally without a glass covering. 
  • Because of the traditional display style for canvas prints, top coating is an additional process for those who wish extra print surface protection. Epson recommends this for its Matte finish canvas only. For those who do not want to top coat, it is recommended that Exhibition Canvas Satin or Exhibition Canvas Gloss be used. These two finishes provide a surface with excellent durability including abrasion, crack, and water resistance even without the use of a top coat.
  • The Photo Output Bureau does not supply top coats for canvas. The one that we recommend is Matt Varnish by Hahnemuhle. This comes in a brush-on-liquid or in an aerosol spray.
