Acrylic Face Mount Proofs Now Available!

We have been providing steep discounts on samples for our pro photographer customers for some time now, but we also wanted to provide a way for anyone to get a look at the very popular acrylic product at a very affordable price.  What we’re doing is offering an acrylic product proof without the dibond backer and hanging hardware.  This allows us to offer acrylic face mount proofs at 7×7, 12×9 or 15×10 (the most common ratios at smallest sizes) at a fraction of the price.

Here’s how pricing breaks down…

7×7 – $19  ($40 off regular price)
12×9 – $29 ($70 off regular price)
15×10 – $39 ($80 off regular price)

(these prices reflect a mount without metallic paper)

This provides a great way to see the quality of work and how your print will look behind acrylic.

How Do I Clean My Acrylic Print?

 I get this questions a lot so thought I’d throw up a quick post.

The best way to clean your acrylic print is to wet a lint free, microfiber cloth with a product called Kleenmaster Brillianize or Novus #1 and then wipe the face of the print. This will not only clean the acrylic but will also polish the acrylic and help alleviate any finger print marks. Any other “normal” glass cleaners (such as Windex) tend to leave a film or streaks. In a pinch, you can also clean with isopropyl alcohol (do not use this often).

Joe Fenton’s Amazing “Solitude” Face Mounted On Plexi, Printed On Metallic

Hard at work: Joe Fenton creating his detailed piece titled SolitudeIllustrator Joe Fenton is an incredibly patient and passionate artist from Brooklyn, New York.  His “Solitude” piece consumed him for 10 hours a day, 7 days a week for 10 months, and when you see the detail of this amazing piece you’ll understand why.

‘It took courage to start it as I had never done anything that size before. As you can imagine, you have to invest a lot of your time to complete something like this.  I just had to believe in my process and have faith that it would work out!’ (via Daily Mail)

We just finished up a small sample piece for Joe printing on metallic paper and face mounting the digital reproduction behind 1/8” acrylic with dibond (aluminum composite) backing.  Hope you like it Joe!  Video and pictures never do these justice but nonetheless here’s a video of the piece.  A large scale piece taking up a wall would be spectacular.

Game Changing Digital Camera Lytro Technology Is Coming

lytrocamera Out of focus digital images may soon be a thing of the past thanks to game changing technology from Silicon startup Lytro.  The company has found a way to adjust the focus of a digital image after the picture has been taken.  Lytro founder and CEO Ren Ng first explained the concept in a 2006 doctoral dissertation at Stanford University and has been able to take the idea from theory to application with a release of the first consumer camera slated for later this year.

The Lytro camera will capture far more light data from many more angles than a current camera does with a special sensor called a micolens array.  Sophisticated software allows the user to use the data points to manipulate the image in a variety of ways including eliminating any blur.  One big advantage of this technology is that the action shot can be much quicker.  No more waiting for the camera to focus which often times results in the shot being lost.  The camera will also capture enough data for 3-D images which could be viewed with 3-D glasses on a TV or PC.  No word on the pricing of this camera yet which will initially be sold through online retailers such as Amazon as well as the Lytro website.  This looks like exciting technology and I can’t wait for the reviews to come in.  We may have to purchase one for the Bumblejax shop and write up our own review! 

New! Metallic Photo Paper Prints On Acrylic

In recent months, we’ve had lots of requests for metallic paper prints which offer an incredibly vibrant, near 3-D effect particularly when mounted behind acrylic.  The acrylic magnifies the beauty of any print and when combined with metallic paper, is a real head turner for those showing their work in galleries or art shows.

It’s difficult to get a feel for the difference in an image or video, so this is something that really needs to be seen with your own eyes to appreciate.  Not sure this is the look for you?  We suggest ordering a smaller 12×9 acrylic piece and if you’re a pro photographer we do offer a 35% discount on your order for an affordable sample piece.  (Pro photographers please contact us for details on our VIP program which offers rebranding, volume discounts and other benefits as well)

Below is video highlighting a large custom piece we did using a customer supplied Kodak Endura Metallic print face mounted behind acrylic.  It should be noted that we are currently using a different brand of metallic paper, but the look is similar.
