Epson GS Canvas Satin is Epson’s newest Signature Worthy paper, providing a premium quality canvas with the same coating utilised on the highly successful GS Canvas Gloss, but with a satin finish that has less surface gloss.
The GS Displaytrans Backlight Film is a new backlit material designed for high quality solvent printing, allowing sign shops, service providers and labs to use solvent technology to produce stunning backlits with dense blacks, brilliant colours and clean highlights at a quality level that was previously not possible with solvent printers. Delivering sharp images with output speeds of up to 3.7 sqm/hr in single strike mode, this new film is ideal for labs and service providers that need to cost-effectively complete short production runs while maintaining the highest quality.
Following the success of the GS Canvas Glossy, the GS Canvas Satin delivers the same coating technology, but with less surface gloss, providing a large gamut for colours and Dmax for deep, dark blacks. The paper is durable, heavyweight and capable of being stretched for various display applications, making it ideal for portrait photography and color landscapes. Designed to meet the needs of higher volume production applications of Epson’s solvent printers, the GS Canvas Satin provides art reproduction houses the highest image quality at production speeds, while delivering high resolution and saturation and still offering the look and feel of a traditional artist canvas. In addition, the GS Canvas Satin and Epson solvent printers provide a solution that eliminates the need for additional varnish applications or finishing of the prints, offering huge labor savings during the finishing process.
