Southwest by Miqui

Reproducing your Art, is very important to us, so we use only the best archival materials available. We use only pigmented Ultra-Chrome™ inks and print on archival medias, this insures that you receive prints that are truly museum quality with longevity your collectors will appreciate.

Creating a good fine art paper is a very delicate process, and every step of this process has an effect on the final look of the printed image. Before a beautiful fine art inkjet paper is created, a beautiful base paper must be created. The only way to end with the best is to start with the best. Therefore, a lot of research went into searching for the very best papers. Our base papers are made using the finest raw materials in the world, and each paper is selected for archival qualities, d-max and beauty. When you hold a our Fine Art Medias  in your own hand, you will feel the quality.

Our Fine Art Canvas


Those who seek the absolute best color reproduction and longevity attainable, as well as crack resistance and sheer strength when stretching over frames, should only be using our Fine Art Canvas.  Our Artists can be assured we are offering the latest and greatest technology available to their Collectors, because color reproduction and longevity are at their absolute maximum.


Designing inkjet fine-art canvas is a form of art in and of itself. There are so many variables that make it a very difficult process. It is for this reason that few canvas manufacturers exist and that problems with supply are common. Our Canvas provider began a mission over 6 years ago to eliminate those inconsistency's and they prevailed.


Our canvas is a museum-grade cotton blend that delivers the purest roll-to-roll consistency and industry leading Dmax by a wide margin. This canvas has pronounced color that will truly blow your mind. This canvas is bright white, archival and museum quality.


We coat the canvas prints  with a extreme water-resistant, UV coating, the print is ready to stretch or mount.  The coating can also be painted on by the artist creating a unique look & hand embellished reproduction.



For example an image is:  16” x 20”

16x20=320 divided by 144 = 2.22 sq. ft. x $23.00 = $51.06 / print.
