DGI Premium Canvas

Photo Direct was requested by a high-end print provider to the professional photographic sector, to create a canvas for the Australian and New Zealand markets.

The Brief

    • Suitable for use in the photographic and fine art reproduction markets
    • Greater detail in the lowlight and highlight areas of the Image
    • Enhanced durability so it may be wrapped on the frame without cracking
    • Reduced optical brightener for greater longevity
    • Reduced cotton seed husks
    • Smooth with zero bumps (husks, retied cotton threads)
    • A white canvas to give a neutral colour balance (not yellow)
    • Low price was the last of the requirements


  • Durable Polyester/Cotton Blend (20%-80%) so it can be wrapped on the frame without cracking and it wont shrink when printed
  • Acid free coatings and water resistant surfaces to suit pigment inks.
  • Reduced optical brighteners for longer lasting images
  • Greater detail in the black and white areas of the image (detail in the bride’s wedding dress without compromising detail in the groom’s suit jacket)
  • A beautiful weight of 380gsm that works hand in glove with the IG Wrap system to produce a perfect tension across the image


  • Premium canvas to suit the high standards required by the professional photographic market
  • Low cost high quality = better margin
  • Beautiful image surface and fewer reprints so you save money on materials cost
  • Happy customers, optimizing your opportunities for repeat business
  • Easy up-sell into the DGI timber frame giving you even more margin
