Fully encapsulated for maximum protection.

Our encapsulated prints create a professional, gallery level work of art to compliment any decor. Encapsulation offers total protection for long-lasting, brilliant prints. Think of it as protection for your investment. Whether you plan to display your art or photography in a commercial setting, for resale, or in your home/office, this print combination will not let you down.

Choose from traditional acrylic/plexiglass or TruLife® non-glare acrylic, then choose your backing option.

Encapsulation Options

Dibond® white aluminum encapsulation offers complete protection and rigidity, with a professional finish.

Our 1/8” (3 mm) aluminum Dibond® encapsulation backer consists of a black polyethylene core between 2 aluminum sheets, powder-coated white. This commercial-rated, triple-layered composite material ensures stability and adds protection to your print, all while maintaining a low weight. Ideal for Pro Level, gallery quality presentations in any format.

  • Ensures stability and durability
  • Makes oversized and panorama formats possible (to avoid warping) 
  • A timeless look for photos mounted under acrylic / plexiglass

3mm Sintra encapsulation offers high quality, modern prints that are ready to hang in an art gallery, home, or office.

Using 1/8” (3mm) Sintra solid core PVC board as a backer affords the same protection and professional look as Dibond®, but at a lower price point. This product is even lighter than Dibond®, and a fantastic choice for large panoramic pieces where weight may become an issue. You also get to choose between black or white, depending on the edge style you prefer. 

  • Ensures stability and durability
  • Lightweight material is perfect for large, panoramic images
  • Two classic side profiles (black or white) for photos mounted under acrylic / plexiglass

Opaque White Vinyl is our most basic encapsulation option, when you want extremely lightweight protection.

  • Overall image protection without rigidity
  • Vinyl prevents ghosting (when the edges of your Museum Back are visible through the front your print after installation)

Hanging Options

For easy, clean hanging we recommend adding an aluminum Museum Back. This sleek, lightweight design will suspend your print tastefully off the wall by 1”, and adds to the professional look and feel that will last for decades.

Note: Aluminum Museum Back option is hung with an aluminum wall cleat, also known as a “Z Hanger”.

Aspect Ratio Note:
We want to ensure your experience is seamless and transparent. Please be aware that our Price Calculator provides you with estimated costs based on the width and height you enter here. The actual print size may vary due to the aspect ratio of the image you upload.


Understanding Aspect Ratio:
Aspect ratio is the proportional relationship between an image's width and height. Think of it as the "shape" of your image. For instance, a common aspect ratio for HD content is 16:9, meaning the width is 16 units for every 9 units of height.

Quality Matters:
Rest assured, we make adjustments to your image according to the aspect ratio to ensure a high-quality print. These adjustments are made with precision and care to deliver the best possible result.

A Minor Difference:
Any variation in print size due to aspect ratio is typically small and should not lead to confusion or frustration. We want you to have a great quality print that matches your expectations.

Thank you for choosing us for your fine art printing needs!

    I had an excellent experience. The order was packaged so well, there was no way any damage could happen to my order, which I truly appreciate. Our order came earlier than expected which was great because it was for an event and I ordered late. As I pulled each piece out, I was in awe! I had been ordering from a different company prior and the material and price can’t compare to ArtisanHD. I will use them again for sure!

    Great Experience!

    Mike S.

    Ordered online 14 x 10 upscaled and edited landscape iPhone pics on 1/2 foam board backing, product is excellent. Packaging for shipment is “serious” and product arrived in perfect condition. Start to finish was a good experience, I will be ordering larger prints from digital camera files.

    Vibrant Colors, Great Ordering System, & Worth Every Penny!

    R Summers

    “It was difficult to know what to expect from this expensive order, but now that I’ve received the two canvases, I can say their online ordering system and its customization options are wonderfully done to support online ordering! A few places could use more tips and examples, but the absolutely most important one—Quality—was perfectly well estimated. The quality is great! The colors are vibrant and remarkable, truly showing the stunning sunsets we captured.

    I did minor enhancements in Photoshop ahead of time to ensure ArtisanHD was working from the crispest image, sharpest colors, and solid contrasts on the low light areas of the sunset landscape; I noticed someone else saying they lost details—increasing contrast and levels in a photo editing program may help. I was shocked to find so much detail in the canvases that I realized I hadn’t even noticed some of it before!

    We’re thrilled, and we’ll definitely be coming back for more! Given the quality, the prices are truly excellent and the time frame is completely reasonable. Packaging was also great. Highly recommend!”

    Trying to Get That "Peter Lik" Landscape Look? Acrylic Print Encapsulation Achieves an Absolute WOW.

    David Hoffman

    I did a lot of research and tried other print labs trying to get that “Peter Lik” look.

    In effort to do JUST THAT, I researched what I could about Peter Lik, YouTube video’s, blogs, etc. and it came down to encapsulation and a quality HD archival grade paper.

    I found ArtisanHD based on that word encapsulation and I uploaded a shot, had it printed, got the shot back and WOW… an absolute WOW.

    Had I not taken the shot myself, I could have pulled it off as a “Professional Photographer”. ;-)

    Anyway.. the ingredients are easy.

    Fuji Crystal paper
    True Life Acrylic Facing
    A good backing (I use 3mm black)
    Hanging system (I use the black)

    Totally Exceeded My Expectations!


    My wife and I happened to come across a gallery in Las Vegas that showcased some incredibly vivid photographs by a certain artist. The photos on display looked as if they were back-lit, however it turns out they weren’t. I spoke to the gentleman at the store and he said they were printed using a special process involving Fuji Flex and Acrylic. So as soon as I got home I searched the net for ways to print some of my own photographs using the same process. That is when I came across Artisan HD. I sent them one of my photos and got the Fuji Flex with the 1/4″ Acrylic Encapsulation to the Dibond (white). It arrived today and it looks absolutely STUNNING! Crazy thing is that the photo looks a lot better than it did on my own computer! Must be some kind of magic they do in the printing process. Even though I do not have the same lighting fixtures they had in the gallery, it still looks great even with normal household lighting.
    The turn-around time was great as well. I placed my order on the 9th and it arrived today on the 20th. So just under two weeks.
    I highly recommend Artisan HD and I can’t wait to send them some more of my best photographs for printing.

ArtisanHD Customer Reviews

As the owner of a small startup company, I looked around The Valley and online for professional high quality printed products. Other solutions always seemed to come with a tradeoff: poor customer service, product size constraints, high pricing and volume, or even bad finish quality. Working with Mike and his team I was able to produce the high quality unique products at competitive prices that I was looking for without compromise. Their knowledgeable customer service was phenomenal! We were even able to find solutions to some of the more complex printing and finishing requirements I needed. I’ll definitely be working with them again on future projects!

I recently sold one of my Digital Art pieces and the team at ArtisanHD have the complete package really sorted out! They are a friendly, client orientated and totally professional team who happen to produce spectacular prints as well! Thanks guys for keeping everyone very happy!
ArtisanHD Online Photo Printing Review – Dale B.Dale B.
Fantastic staff, fantastic facilities, second to none product quality output. I feel like you're my secret weapon.
Beautiful print work and customer service of the highest order – you'll be so thrilled with how well you're treated, and how they'll go the extra mile to make sure you're happy and satisfied with the final result.
ArtisanHD Online Photo Printing Review – Denise S.Denise S.
It's rare I find a company today where the customer service, quality and pricing meet most every need I'm looking for. It's even rarer to find those companies where the staff are not only willing to meet those expectations, but surpass them. In a very stressful situation I created for myself, the staff at Artisan went out of their way to help me find a answer to my predicament. Their team worked with me to find a fast solution pulling me out of a situation I knew very few companies would go out of their way to solve. It's those actions I use to choose who I will send my next job. The service was awesome! The quality was awesome! Their staff was Awesome!
Raegan S.
Artisan Colour is the most creative, talented and friendly place to print and mind meld.  I have been satisfied with every experience I have had with them.  Front end to delivery topnotch.  So glad I was directed to them.

Simply the best. Great client services, great people, and great products.
ArtisanHD Online Photo Printing Review – Dan M.Dan M.
When I inadvertently shipped a limited edition print to a customer before signing it, Artisan was quick to have it rerouted back to their facility to resolve my issue. When I then showed up during the holiday season –– right before New Year's Eve –– I was met by no less than the company's president, Doug Bondon, who was genuinely happy to assist me and get my order on its way in a matter of minutes. Folks, this is what topnotch, white glove service really looks like. Outstanding!
