Your print on SmoothPhotoCloth™

Advantages of SmoothPhotoCloth™

  • Shows fine detail
  • Very durable
  • Protected with heavy Matte or gloss coating
  • Available with stick and peel backing adhesive

Disadvantages

  • Long lasting but not as archival as fine art paper
  • Does not work well with our box mount product

Our SmoothPhotoCloth™ has a very fine weave and a bright white ink receptive coating. This fabric gives you vivid, sharp prints with brilliant colors. This is a great alternative to Canvas for Gallery wraps and also works well with all of our other mountings except Box mount. It adsorbs a lot of ink so with gloss coating the colors are bright and blacks are very dark. Because of the very thin synthetic backing, this cloth is partly transparent and looks great when lit from behind. The fabric body is 130 gsm Terylene only 6 mil thick. Order now

ArtRoll prints

This innovative mounting (without the adhesive back) is like a banner but mounts on a wall so is an economical alternative to gallery wrap and framed prints. It is partly transparent so displays especially well in front of a window...more

Very durable with coating

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

Smooth surface

ArtRoll print on SmoothPhotoCloth

In contrast with Canvas, the SmoothPhotoCloth 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). None of our print media except our photo papers have optical brighteners.

Coatings

We apply the same Glamour II coating to this cloth as we use for canvas. With coating it can have either a matte (non-reflecting) or gloss (reflecting) surface. With a heavy gloss coating it will "pop" like glossy photo paper. Without coating it shows very deep blacks, but is less fade resistant and soils and scuffs easily.

Window shades, banners, lamp shades, table skirts

Our SmoothPhotoCloth is thin and allows light to penetrate in the light parts of the print and the blacks are opaque so it looks great when hung over a window or in front of lights. Please inquire if you are interested in purchasing a window shade, lamp shade, or table skirt with your photo on it.

Sources of our SmoothPhotoCloth™

We have been using the LexJet Water Resistant Satin Cloth for years and it has been well-received by our customers. After purchasing some Photo Tex (trademark by Photo Tex Group) in 2012 we found it is very similar to the Satin Cloth but with an adhesive on the back and not quite as white. It worked really well in place of the Satin Cloth on most of our products except ArtRoll prints. More recently LexJet came out with Print-N-Stick (a LexJet trademark) which is whiter than Photo Tex but otherwise very similar. We will continue to use up our stock of Satin Cloth and Photo Tex when you specify SmoothPhotoCloth unless you specifically request that we use a particular one of these three products.
