    Customer needs a somewhat durable print on canvas.

    I hate to invest in canvas for the Roland as it (canvas prints) isn't a big seller at all, so I would like to make do with what I have.

    I have Canvas for the HP 5500 UV and it prints very well but what can I coat it with to make it water resistant and more durable?

    I've printed canvas on a 5500uv and they are usually good without anything extra but i have used clearshield on them before and it looked great and added some extra protection.

    I have had good luck with coatings from either Lexjet or IT Supplies. You would want to put a good UV coating on it.
