About Archival Canvas by Breathing Color

MK Envision Print Lab has selected Breathing Color to be our canvas supplier due to their rigorous standards and well regarded reputation.  Options include matte or satin, rolled or gallery wrapped.  Each canvas print has a UV protective coating applied for added protection.


1) Lyve Matte Canvas by Breathing Color

Premium Matte Canvas. Archival Certified. OBA-Free.

  • 100+ years certified archival by an accredited 3rd party
  • No optical brighteners (OBA-free), yet still bright white
  • Visually and measureably superior resolution and dmax versus competitors
  • Matte finish  | 19 MIL thickness  | 390 GSM weight

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

Breathing Color's "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.

  • Maximum color gamut, color density & Dmax 
  • OBA-free, yet still bright white
