Printing onto acrylic is a unique medium, bringing a modern flair to any wall space. It can be used for photos, framed prints or custom artwork.
Is acrylic print better than metal?
The best way to determine if this is the right material for your project is to consider several factors. First, consider the image itself and its subject. Some subjects, like brightly colored images, do better on this type of material.
Second, think about the location where you’ll be displaying the art. For example, a sun-filled office might make it difficult to see the print.
Third, you’ll need to think about the backing and mounting options available for your acrylic art. We’re happy to provide a variety of back and mounting options that will help you achieve the look you want.
If you’re unsure which option is right for your project, don’t hesitate to contact us for guidance!
Printing onto Acrylic
The process of printing on acrylic is similar to screen printing. Both processes involve a stencil that is applied to the acrylic surface and then exposed with ink.
Depending on the company, it may be done by printing directly to the acrylic (using a UV printer), or by face mounting, where the image is printed to paper and reverse mounted to the acrylic. This is a lower cost way of producing acrylic art, but it will lose some color accuracy and vibrancy.
Both techniques offer high quality results and allow you to customize your acrylic art. The face mount process is more labor-intensive, but the results are worth it!
