Top 7 Reasons why our Canvas Prints Offer Better Value
There are many cheaper imitators out there but quality is something Q-Photo will never compromise on. Our canvas prints are investments because we give far more value than any other printer. The “Q” in our name stands for “quality” and providing top quality award winning printing services is one of Q-Photo’s core values. We are so confident about our quality that we offer a money-back quality guarantee, the first and only in the industry.
Our printed canvases are printed with an Ultra Chrome Pro 10-colour ink-set that consistently delivers fantastic-looking prints. Blacks are deep and rich thanks to the new high-density Photo and Matte Black inks. The K4 and Multi Size Droplet Technology (MSDT) achieves better gradation and reduced graininess on the print. Because our printers use 10 inks we can achieve a wider colour gamut on our prints which creates a richer and more colour saturated result.
Q-Photo sources the best quality papers from all over the world. Our luxury canvases are printed on a 380gsm 100 % cotton substrate and our canvas lite is made from 280gsm bright white poly-cotton mix. Our printing is done in a temperature and humidity controlled lab environment with daily calibration and colour management protocols are adhered to, ensuring consistent and professional printing results. International colour management and printing protocols are our top priority which is why our Technical Services Manager has been trained in Japan 6 times
All our canvas prints are sprayed with a protective UV sealant that locks in the colour and prevents dust build up. The sealant allows for the printed canvas to be wiped down with a damp cloth. We specifically spray the sealant on as per international protocols as applying it with a brush leaves brush marks, our spray-on system creates a smooth even finish on the printed canvas.
At Q-Photo we stretch our canvas onto the frame using a lazer machine from Italy, the only one of it’s kind in Africa. The lazer system perfectly stretches the canvas over the frame for a professional stretched canvas, there is nothing out there that compares with this stretching method. Our frames are not made from cheap pine, we use a hard wood that does not warp over time and our frames maintain a perfect shape.
