Print your digital mixed media images and photographs on almost any material that will run through your printer.|
inkAID allows you to work with the actual ink jet receptive coatings used on commercial ink jet media, but on the substrate of your choice.
Clear Gloss Precoat
inkAID Clear Gloss coating provides an ink jet receptive surface that allows the underlying material to show through. Printed images are clear and vibrant, with deep blacks. It's the ideal coating to use on absorbent substrates such as watercolor and printmaking papers, Japanese rice paper and other handmade and specialty papers, fabrics, canvas, wallpaper, and wood veneer. One light to moderate coating layer is all that's required. inkAID Clear Gloss coating is not water resistant. If the print is to be top coated use only solvent based top coatings and varnishes.
Cleargloss Precoat 473 ml bottle (1 US pint): $75.00 ($68.18)
Clear Gloss Precoat Type II
inkAID Clear Gloss Type II coating provides a clear, gloss surface that allows the underlying surface to show through. Printed images are clear and vibrant, with deep blacks. It contains an adhesive material that provides very good adhesion to non-porous materials such as aluminum, copper, metal foil, marble and plastics such as Mylar, Lexan, Plexiglas, and Acetate. It can also be used on porous materials such as watercolor and printmaking papers, Japanese rice paper and other handmade and specialty papers, fabrics, canvas, wallpaper, and wood veneer. Non-porous surfaces require one heavy coat while porous materials will need a light to moderate coating applied. inkAID Clear Gloss Type II is not water resistant. If the print is to be top coated use only solvent based top coatings and varnishes.

Clear Matte Precoat
inkAID Clear Matte provides a translucent matte finish which allows the underlying colors or image on the substrate to appear through the coating with the very low gloss level characteristic of a matte finish. Clear Matte has good adhesion to most smooth, nonporous surfaces as well as any absorbent material such as paper, canvas, or cloth. Clear Matte can be used with any printer including those with tracking (pizza) wheels without causing any marking in the print.

Iridescent Pearl Gloss Precoat
Containing true iridescent pigments, these coatings contain an adhesive additive which provides enhanced adhesion to smooth, non-porous surfaces like metal, glass, and plastics. These coatings can also be used on any substrate such as paper, wood, textile, and canvas. inkAID Iridescents provide a beautiful background to print onto. Printers having tracking or guiding wheels can leave marks on non-porous substrates such as plastic, metal, or glass to which inkAID Iridescents have been applied. Porous substrates such as paper with inkAID Iridescent coatings are not of concern.
