    Printing on A4 Canvas with Pro-10S

    Hi all, I have a Pixma Pro 10S and am wanting to do a few canvas based prints. I've been advised to choose Fine Art Paper > Canvas in the set-up, mostly because if I don't then the printer will use photo black not matt black and the results won't be as good.
