New Acrylic Glass Prints

I just added several new acrylic glass art prints to the store!

I personally think acrylics are so cool: sleek and vivid, the colors really pop, and they definitely add a big wow factor.

What is an acrylic glass print?

Acrylic glass prints (a.k.a. plexiglass prints) can be made a few different ways; mine are gallery quality and created by mounting a photographic print between acrylic glass and a sturdy aluminum DiBond backing (a rigid plastic core surrounded by two aluminum sheets). The result is a clean, borderless, vibrant image with rich colors and depth.

Acrylic is unique in that light refracts within it (instead of passing through as it does with glass), resulting in an almost backlit appearance with the right light, and the polished edges give the image an almost 3D look.

Safe to hang in a bathroom

Other great reasons for going with acrylic is that they are shatterproof and resistant to UV light and temperature fluctuations, and perfect when you want a frameless modern look, or want to hang your print in a bathroom, pool house, spa, or other humid area.

And as an added bonus, the lab that creates them for me is phenomenal, I love working with them! They do everything by hand, in-house at their Seattle studio (a lot of places outsource these types of prints overseas), and they’re the nicest people!
