The choice between gloss, matte, or no varnish on your canvas print is both a matter of personal preference and function.
Gloss Varnish: Gloss gives the canvas a very slight shine and highlights the color. It also serves as a protective coating adding durability to your canvas.
Matte Varnish: Matte varnish dulls the effect of sunlight on your canvas and serves as a protective coating to increase the durability of the canvas print.
No Varnish: Some customers prefer that no varnish be applied to the canvas. This is an uncommon choice and most customers choose this if they are going to apply their own varnish.
Most customers choose gloss varnish. If you are unsure of the varnish you want on your canvas, we generally recommend gloss unless the canvas is going to be placed in hard direct light.
