DESCRIPTION

19 MIL, 450GSM MATTE POLY-COTTON INKJET CANVAS. ARCHIVAL CERTIFIED, OBA-FREE.

Unleashed in May 2009 under the bold mantra "Go Live with Lyve", the award-winning Lyve™ Canvas is taking the printmaking industry by storm. With eye-popping color gamut and Dmax, coupled with critical archival certification and the ability to apply a laminate hassle-free, it sets a new standard of exceptionalism in fine art and photographic printmaking. Internally, we refer to this masterful blend of artistry and engineering as "the game changer" that will capture every nuance in your images.

The Lyve™ Canvas is a 19 mil bright white, consistent poly-cotton blend matte canvas using an acid-free, neutral pH coating.


GET A TRIAL ROLL

If you are new to Breathing Color and would like to test this product, we highly recommend that you take advantage of the inexpensive Trial rolls offered.Trial rolls are priced at cost, and at times below our cost in order to encourage our customers to try our award-winning products for a minimal investment. Trial rolls provide enough product so that our customers can sufficiently run tests and create samples. CUSTOMERS MAY ONLY PURCHASE ONE TRIAL ROLL OF EACH PRODUCT.


OTHER PRODUCT INFORMATION

Our "Chromata White" technology gives end-users the most stable platform on which to print photographs and fine art giclees without the metamerism issues or color shift issues inherent on other canvases. Optical Brighteners compromise the attainment of true color, they complicate profiling accuracy, and they inevitably deteriorate and yellow over time.

The water resistant surface works exceptionally well with Glamour II Veneer, our proprietary water-based top coat coating designed specifically for our line of inkjet canvas. If coated with Glamour II, this canvas will not crack even under extremely rigorous stretching conditions (canvas gallery wrap).

 

KEY FEATURES

EYE-POPPING COLOR GAMUT & DMAX

If our Chromata White Canvas impressed you, wait till you see Lyve. Lyve boasts a 15% measurable improvement in Dmax and color gamut. Go Live with Lyve, and you'll be using the finest matte canvas on the market.

INCREDIBLE RESOLUTION

There is no doubt that Lyve took a leap forward in delivering image resolution. It will capture detail and nuance in your images that you never saw before on another canvas. Many photographers attest that this is Lyve's most desirable improvement. Want to see the difference? Check out these close-ups of Lyve vs. Chromata White and Lyve vs. 800m.

OBA-FREE, YET STILL BRIGHT WHITE

Called "Chromata White", this breakthrough technology has set Breathing Color apart for years. Normally, OBA-Free products have a yellowish surface. Our "Chromata White" technology, which we released in 2005, forever changed this by delivering OBA-Free with the desired bright white surface. This answered the needs of our customers to maximize the longevity of their prints while maintaining the most popular and desired look.

"Chromata White" gives the end-user the most stable platform on which to print photographs and fine art giclees without the metamerism issues or color shift issues inherent on other canvases. Optical Brighteners compromise the attainment of true color, they complicate profiling accuracy, and they inevitably deteriorate and yellow over time. 

NO BETTER MATTE CANVAS & VARNISH COMBO

There's nothing superior to the combination of Lyve and Timeless - both proprietary products that were designed for one another. Never use a varnish again that wasn't designed specifically for your canvas.

ARCHIVAL CERTIFIED

Lyve is archival certified for 100+ years. Download and utilize Lyve's Archival Certificate to differentiate your business and show your customers how much you care about quality.
