Derek,
I've used a material from Hexis called Dynajet EXP 500 with some quite pleasing results. The material has a good white surface, and I've found that the Roland canvas profile in SL8 produces good results on my SP-300, also using EcoSol Max inks, it's available in 760mm X 5 metre lengths which I find useful because I rarely use it.

Grafityp L-can for me Derek. It's cotton canvas with a coating that takes the ink lovely and brings out the colours as fabrics can leave the colour a bit muted.

I wouldn't recommend the Grafityp material as it cracks when working with it due to the coating. I have used quit a bit of it but am looking for something else.
You have to use a heat gun when framing to soften it up. It doesn't like the slightest bit of cold.

Hi,

Have used the metamark one with good results - give them a call - they may send you a small sample to test.

I've been using some from Andersons (APS now) and it seems good, quite pricey though. Using Eco-sol max on an SP540V normal vinyl profile.
Can't remember what it was called though.

running the hexis exp 500 looks ok but much better colours running 2 pass

will try and take a pic of the 1 pass against the two pass canvass nice and soft after printing will see how it frames

not very good pic but the left one is actually better
