Belgian Linen™ is different from canvas, with a finer and tighter weave. This luxury linen textile is also extra thick and heavy weight (18 mil, 425 gsm). It feels substantial and expensive in your hands which enhances the valued perception of your giclee.
You can order your Belgian Linen™ giclee prints unmounted or stretched and mounted like a canvas print using our online ordering system.
It is currently available in both a natural or a white base. The natural has no white point therefore may be better suited for designs and or imagery in which the natural linen surface to show through. The white base will have a gesso like coating on it so it is better suited for photography which require whites. Both can be painted over.
