Your lamp shade on Photo Silk

Photo Silk

  • Shows fine detail
  • Very durable
  • Protected with heavy Matte or gloss coating

Our Photo Silk has a very fine synthetic weave and a bright white ink receptive coating. This fabric gives you vivid, sharp prints with brilliant colors. It adsorbs a lot of ink so when back-lit the colors are bright and blacks are dark. The fabric body is 130 gsm Terylene only 6 mil thick.

Back lighting with lamps

It is imposssible for prints to look the same with reflected light and with transmitted light, especially with this light-weight cloth. The dark tones need lots of ink to keep from looking washed out with transmitted light, so then they will look too contrasty and dark in reflected light. For lamps with Photo Silk we will process in Photoshop for transmitted light. With low-operating-cost LED bulbs, we recommend leaving the lamp turned on all the time for your best viewing experience.

Very durable with coating

The durability of the this cloth with coating is as good or better than canvas and much better than paper. We placed a Photo Silk print on a tree outside for two years with little change other than some stains.

Smooth surface

In contrast with Canvas, the Photo Silk weave is very tight and has little texture so it will show every detail and not conflict with the texture of your image.

Very bright whites

PreLume technology visually enhances prints by providing a white point that is brighter, whiter, and lasts considerably longer than substrates whitened with optical brighteners. Optical brighteners will turn yellow when exposed to UV light or moisture. White areas of your print are whiter (110 CIE) compared to our Lyve Canvas (96 CIE).
