Using the canvas you'll be print- ing on, measure the inside area to determine the needed size for your canvas support. Now grab the material you'd like to use to hold the canvas off the staples and cut to the dimen- sions so that your support fits inside the canvas frame. If your canvas is split in the back, you'll want to create two smaller supports instead of one. When finished, place your support on the bed and place the canvas on top. Your canvas should now rest lifting the sta- ples off the bed. Next, raise your printhead to get the correct head height. Once adjusted, direct the head across the canvas to ensure safe printing. Take note of the height on the con- trol panel and select "Exit." Afterwards, place the canvas back on and slide your media to the starting position. Now adjust your job. Double click to open the job and select "Printer Settings." Select your desired resolution. For canvas, we recommend "Photo Quality" and set your head height to what you wrote down. When finished click "OK" and drag the job to your target printer. Press "Start" on the control panel and let the printer take care of the rest. If you have mul- tiple jobs, you can now remove the finished canvas and set your next canvas down on the support. As a final tip, to enhance your can- vas border, try using canvas markers to shade the frame's outer edges. You've now created an amazing canvas print of that unforgettable moment that your family, friends, and clients will cherish for years to come.
