Digital Fine Art and Photo Paper
GLOSSY PIGMENT COMPATIBLE CANVAS
magiclée
Magiclée® Torino 19G is an artist stretch polyester/cotton canvas with a universal glossy coating compatible with both pigmented and dye inks. The unique coating of Torino 19G is designed to work on both thermal and piezo printer systems resulting in the finest quality and enhanced color gamuts for high quality digital output. Torino 19G has a subtle texture and is pliable enough to be stretched and framed. Torino 19G is ideal for portraits, fine art reproductions, museum art, heavy-duty indoor signage, photo displays, and maps.

APPLICATION GUIDELINES
Printer and Ink Compatibility:
Tonino 19G's universal coating is compatible with most water-based thermal and piezo printer systems such as Hewlett-Packard DesignJet®, Kodak/Encad®, ColorSpan®, Epson®, Mutoh®, etc. Dye or pigmented inks can be used with Torino 19G. The inkjet coating produces vibrant images regardless of ink type used. Pigmented inks will provide a longer lasting image.

Printing:
To optimize print quality, select the highest print quality mode on the printer. Ink dry time will vary depending on ink type, percent ink saturation, RH, and temperature. Optimal printing environment is 70°F, 40-60% RH. Ink saturation will vary due to printer type. ICC color profiles can be obtained for a selected RIP, ink, and printer combination.

Printer Loading:
It is recommended to turn off the automatic cutter within the printer system. Some printer blades may not be able to trim this media, especially if the blade is dull. Advance the canvas several inches and cut manually to avoid any problems. Due to the heavy weight of the canvas, the feed rate may differ in printers resulting in slight variations in size from print to print or from the expected size after RIPing.

Base Consistency:
Canvas is a natural base that has variability in its whiteness and fabric weave from lot to lot. Although the surface characteristics may vary, the ink jet coating layer will provide repeatable imaging performance.

Water Resistance:
Torino 19G is not water resistant and should not be used outdoors or in areas of high moisture.

Lighfastness:
Pigmented inks will result in longer lasting images. Dye based inks fade noticeably under direct sunlight or in interior applications where direct sunlight or fluorescent lighting may fall on the image. Over lamination will provide surface protection from fade. Image permanence testing is ongoing at Wilhelm Imaging Research. Results will be published upon completion. Projected lightfast results are expected to be >75 years with pigmented inks.

Material Storage:
Unused portion of the roll should be stored in its original packaging in the poly bag with core plugs. Unimaged material should be stored at 72°F (+/-5°) for no more than 1 year.

FINISHING GUIDELINES
Mounting:
After printing, images should be allowed to dry before handling. It is recommended to apply surface protection prior to stretching and framing. This will protect the image from scratching or the coating from cracking. Images are more susceptible to scratching at higher RH environments (>60%RH). Torino 19G can be permanently attached to a rigid board or frame with staples or tacks. It is not recommended to use glue or pressure-sensitive adhesives, as these will intefere with the natural environmental shrinkage over time. All edges should be affixed to prevent edge curl from occurring. Edges may crack when stretched. Studio wrap finishing is not recommended.

Surface Protection:
Torino 19G may be overlaminatd using liquid laminates. It is recommmended to pre-test the liquid laminate prior to using. Matte or luster sprays can be used to lower the image gloss if desired. For longer lasting images, use fast-drying sprays with UV blockers.
