IJ Technologies announces the latest addition to the Black Diamond product line of ink jet media, AgX Canvas. AgX is a high gloss silver based water resistant canvas.
Prints made on AgX Canvas have a significantly increased level of vibrancy. “The quality of this material is stunning. We have several people with over 20 years of fine art imaging experience, and every single one of them stopped in their tracks when they saw this. I had to fight them off to keep my sample. They couldn’t have it because I’d already picked out where I was putting it on my wall!” -Randy Baer, Vice President and Director of International Operations, Firehouse Image Center.
IJ Technologies market research indicates that the Photo Lab industry is projecting silver metallic imaging to be an area of growth. “We are listening to the industry and working hard to create new products which are practical and will allow those who use them to differentiate themselves from their competitors” said Gordon Kane, Business Development, IJ Technologies. “One strength of IJ Technologies has been its ability to respond quickly to market needs in terms of products.” says Liz Gould, President, IJ Technologies. “When the Fine Art market indicated a need for a high gloss, rapid drying, crack and water resistant ink jet canvas, IJ Technologies developed its popular Black Diamond Gloss Canvas. Now the metallic look is popular and IJ has responded with AgX Canvas”.
The new AgX Canvas combines the advantages of Black Diamond Canvas with a glossy metallic look. The goal w as to develop a special ink jet canvas which would give the fine art or photo printer a distinctive metallic alternative to offer their customers.
