OBA-FREE, YET STILL BRIGHT WHITE
Called "Chromata White", this breakthrough technology has set Breathing Color apart for years. Normally, OBA-Free products have a yellowish surface. Our "Chromata White" technology, which we released in 2005, forever changed this by delivering OBA-Free with the desired bright white surface. This answered the needs of our customers to maximize the longevity of their prints while maintaining the most popular and desired look.
"Chromata White" gives the end-user the most stable platform on which to print photographs and fine art giclees without the metamerism issues or color shift issues inherent on other canvases. Optical Brighteners compromise the attainment of true color, they complicate profiling accuracy, and they inevitably deteriorate and yellow over time.

NO BETTER MATTE CANVAS & VARNISH COMBO
There's nothing superior to the combination of Lyve and Timeless - both proprietary products that were designed for one another. Never use a varnish again that wasn't designed specifically for your canvas.
Lyve is archival certified for 100+ years. Download and utilize Lyve's Archival Certificate to differentiate your business and show your customers how much you care about quality.
COLOR CONSISTENCY UNDER DIFFERENT LIGHTING CONDITIONS
Ever noticed how a print can look identical under one light source, yet show remarkable differences in color when viewed under a different light source? This problem is referred to as "metamerism". When OBA's are used in inkjet media, the metamerism problem exacerbates exponentially. Because this product is manufactured OBA-free, you are assured that your prints will look consistent under different lighting conditions.
NO CRACKING OR TEARING WHEN STRETCHING
When varnished with Timeless Gloss, Satin, or Matte, Lyve will not crack or tear when stretched.
