The Acrylic Face Mount - More Vibrancy & Color Than Glass With An Equally Modern Look. Here's Why ...
Fine Art Photo + Light Refraction Of Acrylic = HD Color. WOW.
Your photo is printed to high grade photo paper with 100% color accuracy and a full gamut. Pairing this fine art print with an air-tight acrylic face provides for a presentation that no other process can match. Not even close. While printing to glass is a novel idea, the color accuracy and range is considerably limited. In terms of vibrancy, the acrylic is unique in how it reacts with light by refracting light and bouncing it back at you. With glass, light simply passes through.
If you’re looking to have a photo printed to glass than you’ll love our acrylic face mounting process which is a difficult, labor-intensive process that few companies in the world have perfected. The pay off is a print that offers far superior vibrancy and a wider color gamut that printing directly to glass. We’d like to prove it to you by offering 30% off your first order (use code AcrylicWOW30 at checkout) and if you’re not 110% happy let us know and we’ll refund you in full including the shipping cost.

A Review From Captain Photo!
Absolutely, pricing includes the printing, mounting, floating/hang blocks and hanging hardware. No spending hours trying to figure out pricing here! 😀 See pricing table in tab to left. Pricing does not include shipping which is 10% of product price for pieces 40×30″ and below.
You got it! The wood/wire hanging system is as easy as putting a drywall hook in your wall with no tools required. For large pieces and those wanting the more sleek aluminum subframe will get a french cleat system which involved a little bit more work but not too bad.
|Most orders will take about two weeks to receive from time of payment. Rush options decrease that time.|
Standard: production time for stocked sizes that can be ordered online is typically 4-6 business days. For custom sizes it’s about 7-8 business days. Depending on what we have in the order queue sometimes orders can get out a day or two faster.
Rush: we offer a rush production option at checkout online which gets your order out in 24-48 hours for a 20% charge. We may not be able to do this for very large orders so please contact us before placing a large rush order.
Standard: standard ground shipping is 1-5 business days depending on where you’re located from Seattle. So for example, orders going to WA, OR and ID can be as quick as overnight while orders going to the East Coast will need 5 business days.
Rush: we offer expedited shipping options if you need them, but they can get expensive. For online orders, you have the choice of 3 day, 2 day and standard overnight shipping. If you need a different option such as Saturday or AM delivery contact us before placing the order and we can send you a custom pay link.
TIP: Many of our customers are pro photographers with tight deadlines so we understand the need for delivery on specific dates. If you’re unsure of the best option please contact us to discuss your project and deadline. We are flexible and can push orders out a bit faster if need be and possibly offer a reduced rush rate for large orders, etc.
We offer the acrylic in 1/8″, 1/4″ and 1/2″. We do offer 1″ acrylic blocks as well in limited sizes. More info on those can be found here. Generally, the thicker you go, the more vibrancy and depth you’ll achieve, but all products look terrific.
All of our acrylic is clear cast and of the highest quality for face mounting. We do offer an upgrade with the TruLife acrylic in 1/8″ thickness only. It offers glare reduction, scratch resistance, anti-static properties and better UV protection (99% vs 75%).
EDGE FINISH OPTION
This option is included in the base price of our acrylic face mount product and provides a nice finished edge, just more opaque than the polished edge upgrade.
Diamond Polished Edge
The upgrade option here is for a diamond polished edge with a completely smooth, see through edge.
TIP: As you get thicker with the acrylic, the diamond polished edge becomes more important. So, with the 1/8″ you could really go either way. It is recommended with the 1/4″, but many customers are just fine with a routed edge. It is required with the 1/2″ acrylic and 1″ blocks. It’s the combo of the thicker acrylic and the diamond polished edge that gives the piece a really cool 3D effect.
We offer a Diamond Jet Photolustre paper which is a very nice paper and included in the base price of all our products. While it’s a fine choice for any photo, the metallic paper upgrade (see below) is a terrific upgrade for many photos. The satin/lustre paper is typically recommended with photos where people are the focus (ie. family portraits) as well as softer, less vibrant images.
We offer the best pigment inkjet metallic paper available which is the Lexjet Sunset Metallic paper. This is a nice upgrade for photos that are bold and vibrant and offers a bit more depth and pop to the image particularly when combined with the acrylic product.
Note: We are often asked to provide an image showing the difference between the two, but it’s impossible to capture on a camera. If you’re uncertain, contact us for a consultation and/or consider ordering a couple small paper proofs to see the difference.
While the floating/hanging mechanism won’t be seen once the art is on the wall, some like the more elegant look of the aluminum subframe.
Kiln dried doug fir wood floats your art 3/4″ from the wall and included hanging wire and drywall hook allow for a quick 1 minute install no tools required.
