Brand: Sunset

Sunset Reserve Matte Canvas is a poly/cotton blend with a neutral-white finish that is slightly more textured than LexJet's popular Sunset Select Matte Canvas. This versatile canvas can be used in a variety of fine art, photographic and commercial graphics applications including gallery and museum wraps, fine art photography and portraiture, fine art reproductions, corporate office and lobby art, and high-end retail and Main Street decor.

The canvas was developed to provide a consistent imaging surface with a high white point that produces a wide color gamut without optical brighteners. It is compatible with a range of protective coatings (spray and roll-on) and works especially well with Sunset Coatings.

Software Settings The coating on this product is engineered for better than 300% ink coverage. A photo luster, satin or semi-gloss setting is the recommended starting point. However, we recommend a custom ICC profile for optimal results. Please refer to www.lexjet.com for starting-point ICC profiles for some printers.
Software Settings For the best and most consistent results, a profile should be created using an external color calibrator in conjunction with your RIP and color matching software.
Light Fastness The fading time of ink jet ink is a direct result of the inks that you choose, as well as the environment where the print is displayed. All dye-based inks fade noticeably under direct sunlight and in interior applications where direct sunlight may fall on the image, and/or, where fluorescent or other UV lighting is present. Although the fading process is inherent in all ink jet inks, certain UV enhanced inks, pigment-based inks, and UV inhibiting coatings will extend the longevity of ink color. Contact the ink manufacturer to determine a specific ink's suitability for a particular application.
Finishing/Post Processing No post processing or finishing is required on this paper, however, a clear fixative, such as LexJet Sunset Coatings, may be applied to enhance certain areas of the print.
Optimal Print Environment 66-77° F , 20-60% R.H
Handling Recommendations Due to the absorptive nature of the coating, you should avoid touching the coated surface. It's always recommended that cotton gloves be used when handling inkjet coated materials. Rolls of LexJet film are supplied with the coated side facing out.
Ideal Storage Conditions 70° F (21° C), 50% R.H. (a controlled environment is recommended); store in original packaging.
Shelf Life 1 year from the LexJet ship date when stored in proper conditions.

Just Beware!
Review for Sunset Reserve Matte Canvas:  I have used this canvas for 7+ years through the current company I work for and a previous company.  Last year I had problems with rolls in sizes 24", 36" and 44" with the canvas suddenly printing splotchy (not a printer issue previous rolls were fine.)  Contacting the company they denied anyone claiming to have the same problem but in contacting another local printing company using the same canvas I found out they were having the same problems and were unable to get any resolution by contacting LexJet.  I was sent replacement rolls that ended up having the same issues and decided that it was time to change to another company and canvas.  After about a year of using BC Lyve Canvas I decided to give Lexjet another try and ordered this same canvas again.  No blotchy problems have been encountered but now a new problem has surfaced.  Black spots throughout the coated surface.  Not something you want when printing high key files. After some research online I discover forums where others had encountered the same problems.  Suggestions were that the black spots are bits of cotton seed kernels. I contact LexJet with the issue and they asked for lot numbers and photos which I provided.  Again stating no one else was having this issue.  Inferring it was just me.  They did send out two replacements but charged for me 50% of the cost for the two rolls which was fair as I had used part of the rolls on darker images that the spots did not present a problem in.  However all of this took quite some time to get done and left me in a bind with my clients.  I have received the two new rolls and they still have the same problem with the black spots throughout the roll. In the meantime I ordered another roll of BC Lyve canvas.  Comparing this to LJ Sunset Reserve Matte Canvas I found BC Lyve canvas has no such issue.  LexJet suggested that I order a different canvas from them as a solution to this problem.  This really isn't a viable solution as I have color corrected for clients based on this canvas for years and this is a bit of trouble to suddenly change. Conclusion: I would not suggest this canvas unless you are printing a lot of dark values. My solution to use this up is to gently scratch out the embedded spots with an exacto blade then print on it. Pros: good color, easy stretching Cons: embedded black spots & corners crack easily when stretching.
