What is an Acrylic Print?
Benefits of Acrylic Prints
UV protection: If you’re looking for a high level of UV protection for your images, our professional grade acrylic will last much longer than other materials. Our archival printing method ensures that these will be resistant to UV rays for much longer. This means you can display them in bright rooms that don’t have any UV filtering, or even outdoors.
Lightweight: Acrylic prints are lightweight enough that they can be hung even from typical drywall without risk of collapsing the wall. Their light weight also makes them easily transportable in the event that you ever need to move your print. This combination of light weight and durability makes acrylic prints a true winner!
Highly Attractive: Acrylic prints make a statement on the wall. They show off your best photos or artwork and are proud to be displayed. They add a modern element to a room and can easily be added or removed. The polished look of the acrylic adds extra depth and radiance to every image. Couple these in an interior with custom wall murals or wall decals and you’ll bring to life your whole room.

Acrylic Prints vs Canvas Prints
Acrylic prints are more durable and longer lasting. They also allow for the option of leaving blank space that can be transparent, if that is a look you are going for. If you are looking for a more modern-looking printing option, an acrylic photo print is the way to go.
Canvas prints are not quite as durable or longlasting, so if you anticipate that your display will be subject to the elements, you should pick an acrylic print instead. However canvas prints have a very charming, classic look. If you are looking to reproduce the appearance of a painting, then a canvas print will absolutely do that. Canvas prints also tend to be slightly lighter, if this is a concern for you.
Who Uses Acrylic Prints?
Professional photographers are able to transform their photos from something of medium quality on paper to something super high quality on an acrylic panel. Photographers are able to offer a higher end product to clients, and charge higher prices.
Interior designers love recommending acrylic prints to their clients when adding a modern look and feel to an interior. Rather than standard printed photos or canvas prints, an acrylic print makes a beautiful permanent fixture.
For more temporary displays for trade shows or for presentations foam boards are a good option.
