Transform Your Digital Photos Into Gallery Quality Art With Acrylic Photo Mounting
Not All Acrylic Prints Are Created Equally! What Are The Differences?
Whether you have your beautiful prints mounted in a traditional way with glass and frame or in a more modern way with our acrylic frameless photo mounts, it’s important to know the differences in how it’s made because it can affect color as well as durability.
Direct Print vs Face Mount: There are many companies printing directly to the acrylic. It’s a cheaper option, but you don’t get the full color gamut or richness that you would get printing to high grade photo paper. Here at Bumblejax we we believe in printing to high quality paper and then face mounting your image to acrylic for the absolute greatest color quality and vibrancy.
Stand Off Bolts: Most companies will use stand off bolts in each corner to provide a way to hang or attach two acrylic pieces. Again, it’s a cheaper way to go, but we believe this is distracting and takes away from the center of attention which should be your photo! Our hanging and floating mechanism is completely hidden so it appears your art is floating off the wall. No frame, no bolts, just your vibrant image.
Dibond vs Sintra vs No Backer: This is real important particularly for larger pieces. The backing material is very important to stabilizing your acrylic photo mount over time and there is no better material than Dibond. ALL our pieces ship with a dibond backer and we wouldn’t consider using anything else (we switched to Dibond from Sintra very early on). Lots of companies use either Sintra which is cheaper and offers less stability or no backer at all if they are printing directly. We will never sacrifice quality for cost cutting measures here at Bumblejax and we pride ourselves on perfection. We want to make sure you’re informed of the potential differences in acrylic prints. To help you in your research we created a guide of all the options you’ll want to consider including the aforementioned. Check it out here!

Video doesn’t do it justice, but…. it’s another good way to get a sense of this spectacular medium. The first video is a shot of a very large acrylic mount we produced for a local digital artist using metallic paper and it was stunning. The 2nd video shows our process of creating the acrylic art (note: a few small changes have been made in the process since this was shot).
