How to Preserve your Canvas Prints


We strongly recommend protecting digital canvas prints with a varnish or coating. This is an essential step for improving the lightfastness (how resistant it is to fading when exposed to light) whilst preserving the print from dirt, airborne pollutants and fingerprints. Using a varnish will additionally prevent the canvas from cracking when folded.

PermaPROtect, a canvas varnish made by PermaJet, has an added bonus of adding saturation, improving the colour gamut and increasing the density of the blacks. The varnish is available in three finishes - Gloss, Satin and Matt - ensuring the user can get the exact end result they require for the canvas they are printing on.


PermaJet has taken steps to ensure that the range of PermaPROtect varnishes meets the necessary protection standards by having them independently tested and approved by a notable test laboratory in the UK, confirming that there will be no discolouration or change over 85 years when exposed to UV light conditions.
