Photo Printing on Acrylic

photo printing

A type of plastic, acrylic is a transparent, lightweight, shatter-resistant material that has a virtually smooth surface, similar to a piece of glass. At Rosenbaum Framing, custom art framing in South Florida, we can bring your photos to life with beautiful acrylic prints that are rich in color.

Choosing to transform your photos into acrylic wall art is a modern and sleek way to  get your digital photos out of your phone or camera and create beautiful wall displays to show off your best images around your house. Not to mention, these pieces make fantastic gifts for loved ones.

There are two different processes for creating acrylic photo prints

  1. Direct Printing: printing directly onto the acrylic substrate
  2. Face Mounting: printing onto photographic paper and mounting the print behind acrylic


Common ways to mount your acrylic wall art:

  1. Metal Standoffs: attaching your custom acrylic print to your wall with four stainless mounting posts
  2. Floating-Look: hanging the print on hooks or nails using hidden hardware such as D-rings attached behind the print to make the photo look like it’s floating on the wall
  3. Hanging Wire: hanging the print from a nail or hook using hanging wire attached to a wooden framework on the back of the print
  4. French Cleat: fitting a board with an angled edge on the back of the print to a matching board with an angled edge which is attached to the wall.
