Printing on Canvas Cloth

By July 19, 2010

Follow me on:

Last week I was looking for some photo paper to print up some small posters. Digging around in my printer supply cabinet I found a package of canvas cloths for inkjet printers. Don't remember when or why I bought this pack but I'd never used it. So, what the heck, I stuck them in the printer to try out. I like 'em. This particular pack was Office Depot brand 8.5x11 canvas. But canvas for inkjets comes in many sizes and styles including cut sheets and rolls (compare prices).

This Flickr posting brings up a question I had when I printed the canvas sheets -- what paper type setting to use. Canvas is not an option. I used a matte photo paper setting and it came out nice on my Canon inkjet. You may need to experiment with your own printer to find what gives the best results. Of course, the subject your printing (photo vs. non-photo, etc.) can make a difference too.
