How weather proof are these how long will they last
Question by: Joe lednicky on Dec 5, 2018 11:21:00 PM
The canvas is waterproof, so being subjected to rain, or cleaning with water or a hose, won't hurt it. As for how long a print would last, it's impossible to say without more information. There are many different factors that affect longevity, such as UV exposure and air quality/pollution levels. If displayed in a gallery, it should last for 80-100 years. Left in the sun in a desert area, probably 2-3 years. If you have more details on where and how you plan to use the prints, we can make an educated guess as to how long they would typically last.

Can you mount this as a gallery wrap or a mounting board for outside?
Question by: Julie Gravino on Apr 14, 2021 2:44:00 PM
Yes, it could be wrapped or mounted for outdoor use, but it would need to be on something that wouldn't be affected by moisture or humidity changes, like metal. If it was to be used in areas where it could be exposed to a lot of moisture, like out in the rain, mold or mildew could be an issue if water could get between the canvas and the mounting board, so it would be best if it were used where it would be protected from direct rain, especially in climates with high humidity.

I was wondering if there is a way to make this double sided? With a different image on each side. Also can it be put on some type of a stand to be staked into the ground?
Question by: Becky on Oct 25, 2017 2:42:00 PM
No, this material can't be printed double sided, but we do have double sided banner materials. If you look in the Banner section of Printing for Outdoor Use you'll find those. We also have double sided outdoor banner stands that you might want to look at.

This waterproof canvas is great for art reproductions, photos on canvas, murals, indoor or outdoor hanging banners or point of purchase displays. Since it's a 100% polyester canvas with an acrylic top coat, it's especially well suited to canvas prints that are being displayed outdoors. It's also a great choice for oversized canvas prints since it's available in widths up to 98".
Approximate longevity of 50 years indoors, and 6 months - 3 years outdoors, depending on exposure to the elements and how it's installed.
The fact that it's 100% polyester means moisture has no effect on it. It comes in extra large sizes.
The acrylic coating hides some of the canvas texture, so it's smoother than our art canvas products.
