Acrylic Prints: The Gold Standard In Photo Home Decor
Our acrylic (otherwise known as plexiglass) prints for the wall (1/8, 1/4, 1/2") and our standalone acrylic photo blocks (1") are produced in-house in the USA by our craftsmen with more than a decade of experience. Each piece is meticulously crafted using the superior face mount method for the widest color gamut, permanence, and vibrancy. Our process first involves printing to professional grade photo paper, reverse mounting the print to the acrylic (so that you're looking through the acrylic at your print). backing it with dibond (an aluminum composite material) to keep it rigid and finishing up by adding hanging hardware.
We always produce these as gallery quality using the finest materials. We have the highest customer satisfaction rating in the industry due to our passion for perfection and our attention to detail. We can't wait to produce an acrylic print for you soon!
Not All Acrylic Prints Are Created Equally
If you're reading this you've likely already done some research on acrylic prints and may even purchased one which is great! It's truly the most beautiful photo presentation around if done the right way. Unfortunately, some have an awful first experience because they don't understand there are many ways to produce these and receive a subpar print. We won't go in to all the key components of a gallery quality acrylic print here since we have a detailed acrylic prints buy guide article, but want to highlight the most important to question to ask the company who is producing your print.
Direct To Acrylic Printing Vs Face Mount Method.
Direct to acrylic is the most common and least labor intensive process which means far better pricing. The trade off is often significant with inferior color, longevity and craftsmanship. The acrylic face mounted print is what you'll see in galleries because they last a lifetime, yield accurate color and offer superior vibrancy. Here at Bumblejax we only offer the acrylic face mounting method which we demonstrated many years ago. Hard to believe more than 10 years have gone by since we did this video. Some minor production processes have changed over the years but we're still producing our prints in a similar way!
Where Are They Made?
There are some companies out there that portray a USA based business but don't manufacture the prints in the US. Often times they are coming from Mexico, India and China. These kinds of operations will have far more issues with quality as well as damaged and delayed shipments so be careful.
