Amazing Depth. Stunning Results.

Print your artwork directly onto 1/8″ or 1/4″ acrylic plexiglass to make your unique images instantly more dynamic as the rich colors interact beautifully with light.

For this printing process, ArtisanHD will print your photo directly to the plexiglass surface. This is an extremely durable and long-lasting solution that does not require photo paper or additional mounting materials. Known for optimum ink adhesion, this print medium delivers high-resolution images with unmatched detail and durability. UV cured ink stands up to the environment, is not affected by humidity, and can be hung outside (place out of direct sunlight for maximum duration).

Standard Hanging System

A Standard print with a 2″ border and 1″ stainless steel standoffs is the hanging system we recommend for all of our Direct to Acrylic / Plexiglass prints. Full Bleed prints (no clear border) are also available (select in the Configurator). You can select “none” for Hanging if you plan to add your own frame around your print.

These modern and durable 1″ stainless steel mounting barrels are super easy to install – all Direct to Acrylic print orders come with 4 holes pre-cut into the acrylic plexiglass print surface. Each hole is slightly oversized for optimal hanging alignment, in case your hanging measurements happen to be off by just a touch.

This hanging system allows light to fall behind your artwork display, which provides a professionally lit effect.

For our Standard print, we add 2″ of clear-space all around your image, so the hardware will not interfere with your artwork in any way.
Please be sure to add 4″ to your overall desired print height and width to allow for this 2″ border to be included.

If you would prefer your art without the border, Full Bleed prints are available.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not offer our Direct to Acrylic prints with any type of Museum Back or Float Mount hanging systems, as we’d be adhering these frames directly onto the ink layer that is printed on the back of your acrylic plexiglass print. This would be a possible ink adhesion failure point.

FAQs

What’s the difference between direct to print and paper mounted prints? 2017-07-27T03:29:39+00:00

We offer two types of Plexiglass or acrylic prints.

Our most popular Plexi print is Direct to Plexi or Direct to Acrylic. For this print type, we print your photo directly to the back of 1/4″ Plexiglass, without paper. This option includes a 2″ border and stainless steel standoffs.

We also offer a Plexiglass print solution where you first choose your high definition photo paper, then we mount the paper to the back of the a 1/4″ piece of Plexi. This option covers 100% of the Plexi, and is mounted with a museum back.

For more information, visit our Product Page.

How can I ensure long-lasting prints? 2017-07-27T03:29:39+00:00

Keep your digital prints away from any environment that has excessive moisture or heat. Also, to prevent fading, do not place your photos in direct sunlight. You might even want to move your photos from place to place within a room or house to ensure that no one print receives too much sunlight.

What is “plexi”? 2017-08-18T15:32:36+00:00

Plexi is a type of transparent acrylic. It is often used in place of glass. We use plexi /acrylic because of the superior results it gives when we print to this medium.

What is commonly known as “Plexiglass”, is really a brand of acrylic and today it is sold under many different names, including Acrylite, Lucite and Perspex. Because of our high standards, we insist on using only the best plexi products available.

We encourage you to try it as it’s a wonderful alternative to printing on canvas. Want to know more about why to choose plexiglass aka acrylic; check out this blog post:  What is the difference between a photo print mounted to acrylic vs. a direct digital print on acrylic?

Why custom print to acrylic? 2017-07-27T03:29:39+00:00

Digital prints on acrylic are a great alternative to printing on regular photographic paper or other mediums. Acrylic printing has a lustrous glossy finish, which not only adds to the contemporary look, but also brings out a depth and clarity to your photos that are incomparable.

Specially treated, this professional process ensures that your photos will last a lifetime. The mounting process we use also protects your photos from humidity and sunlight, (although you should be careful not to expose them to direct sunlight or high humid conditions).

Professional acrylic printing lends a very contemporary look to the final product. It brings the fine art of photography to a whole new level of modern art. We frequently recommend acrylic mounted photos for displaying modern works of fine art and photography.

Can you create digital prints on acrylic? 2017-07-27T03:29:40+00:00

Yes, Artisan HD can take your photos and create digital prints on acrylic. To see more about the process, read more HERE.

  2. 5 out of 5 Fantastic Product!

    Artisan Colour recently mounted a photograph that will be included in one of my Fiber and Photograph art pieces. The photo was applied to acrylic and special holes were drilled, two processes I had done in the past but am so glad to have a professional now do. From my first contact with them to the arrival of my piece I was treated as if my small project was as important as a million dollar job. Fantastic product and great customer service!

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!

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!
