With acrylic print wall art, you can’t go wrong. Even if you’re looking at acrylic prints, there are several considerations to keep in mind before taking the plunge and investing in them. While acrylic prints have positive attributes, they also have negative aspects. There are a number of various ways to print on acrylic, and it is vital to know the difference between them before we can get into the specifics of printing on acrylic.
How to print on Acrylic
Acrylic picture prints are a great way to better understand what they are. On the subject of how to print art on acrylic, there are two separate ways to go about it.
1. Image directly onto acrylic
The picture is printed directly onto the acrylic in the first step. Picture depth and image quality are enhanced by refracting light via acrylic glass. After that, a white back coating is applied to keep it sealed. The initial printing process is seen in the picture below.
2. Ink onto paper
The second method is more time-consuming and costly, but the final result is well worth it. The picture is transferred to paper, sandwiched between three acrylic plates and a metal backer to create the final print. Depending on the picture, the rear acrylic sheet might be black, white, or transparent. It is then attached to the wall using metal standoffs, which provide visual depth to the acrylic frame.
Color brightness and persistence are enhanced by using the face-mount approach. To put it another way, this implies that the color is significantly less susceptible to fading. Because of the acrylic face mount, the colors in the shot pop once they’re printed on high-quality photo paper. It is possible to see a print behind an acrylic sheet because of the reflective properties of acrylic material.
