WHY CHOOSE AN ACRYLIC PRINT?

Posted on June 23, 2015

If you’re looking for a print with color that will jump off the wall, an acrylic print from Create My Walls is it! Acrylic printing is one of the most popular forms of wall art in the digital wall art industry, due to its natural gloss look and color vibrancy.

We print your image from edge to edge directly on 3/16” cast clear acrylic, using our advanced technology process. The acrylic’s natural gloss finish enhances your photo and gives your picture a very sleek look. When we print onto the acrylic, it makes bright colors extremely vibrant. The photos that work best on acrylic are bright photographs with vivid colors. Photographs of nature with blues, greens and oranges look great on acrylic.

Why Choose a Metal Print?

WHY CHOOSE A METAL PRINT?

Metal wall art is the newest and most popular product offering in the digital printing art replication industry right now. Demand for metal printing is skyrocketing due to the unique way natural light reflects off the material and the unique natural grain and texture to the raw material. If you are looking for a print that will catch people’s attention, this is it!

We print directly on brushed aluminum which has a very fine natural grain to it.

When light catches the unprinted aluminum, it will reflect the light creating a very unique effect that will catch your attention! When we print color over the aluminum, it reduces it’s reflective properties resulting in a beautiful matte print. The photos that work best on metal are black & white, sepia tones and photos with large areas of white in them. All white areas of your photograph will be unprinted – leaving the natural brushed aluminum surface. And you can use the filters in Customizer on our website to turn any photograph into a black & white print. You can also apply many other different filters to apply to your photo to change color, contrast, color density etc.

We recommend pictures that are lighter in color with areas of white in your picture for best results. For example, landscape images with large areas of clouds or snow turn out amazing on metal. If the focal point of your photo is light in color, you will love the way your photo will look on metal.

 

Photos that are dark in nature tend to come out better on other materials (such as acrylic or canvas) due to the high level of ink needed to print those colors ends up taking away the reflective nature of the metal & reduces the appearance of the brushed strokes in the aluminum.
