How are acrylic prints made?

We invest a great deal of time and effort in the production of your HD acrylic prints, ensuring you receive nothing but the finest Giclée Acrylic Print.

To start with we print your image onto fine art glossy paper; which is archival so won’t fade in sunlight for over 100 years. We then face mount the print to the 5mm thick acrylic panel using an optically clear adhesive. All that is left to do now is to ensure the ensures are diamond polished and mount a strong aluminum subframe to the image for extra rigidly and easy hanging.

Rigorous testing and quality checks are in place throughout to eliminate any faults.

Get creative with photo wall layouts

Creating a photo wall at home is easier than you think and can transform the look and feel of a room. Have a look online for inspiration like Pinterest and Instagram and we can help turn your dream wall into reality.

Pick a theme - Photo walls work really work well they tell a story, like 'family time' or 'holiday memories'.

Dont be afraid to break the rules - a popular look is to have all the prints line up exactly with equal spacing. However, you can make a big statement by varying the picture sizes and formats. Be bold!

Blue Sky Thinking

Acrylic Prints vs Aluminum Prints

Both Acrylics and aluminum prints will give an image an ultra-vivid, HD high gloss effect which will surely compliment any image. However, there are a few subtle differences that might be worth considering.

We normally recommend aluminum prints over acrylics if you are picking regular photo proportions. This is because aluminums are much lighter and can be more scratch-resistant. However, the 5mm depth of an acrylic print is something which can’t be recreated with an aluminum if that it the look you are going for.

We never print directly onto the acrylic

We are proud to say that we never print your image directly onto the acrylic panel itself - this process is a lot cheaper, hence why so many online printers use it. However, by printing directly onto the panel, the image quality is significantly reduced. Printing directly onto acrylic uses a print method known as UV printing and it is not able to reach the same colour range as our archival Giclee Pigment printing can. Direct printed acrylic will only give you a flat, non-vibrant finish which we are simply not willing to give out to our customers.

Custom size Acrylic Prints

Acrylic Prints are perfect if you would like to achieve a high gloss ultra HD finish on your print but it needs to be an exact size or larger than our aluminium prints go up to. We can product acrylic prints to your exact measurements; right down to the mm. Therefore, if you have a particular space on the wall or need a custom splash back made to measure then the acrylic print is perfect for that.

We can also create panoramic acrylic prints as well as large format acrylic prints.
