Amazing Depth. Stunning Results with Acyrlic Prints.

Direct print onto 1/4″ acrylic (plexiglass) to make your unique images instantly more dynamic as the rich colors interact beautifully with light.

This printing process does not require photo paper or additional mounting materials, and is available with and without stainless steel stand-offs. ArtisanHD will print your photo or digital artwork directly to the acrylic plexiglass surface. Known for optimum ink adhesion, Direct to Acrylic prints deliver high-resolution images with rich detail and durability as a long-lasting print solution. UV cured ink stands up to the environment, which means these prints are not affected by humidity and can be hung outside (place out of direct sunlight for maximum duration).

“The quality of my photos are brought to another level with the direct-to-plexi print option. I can’t say enough for what ArtisanHD has done to bring the impact and professionalism I’ve always wanted to my work.”

We Recommend Our Standard Mount Hanging System

Our Standard Mount with a 2″ clear border and 1″ stainless steel standoffs is the hanging system we recommend for all of our Direct to Acrylic Plexiglass prints. 

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

By allowing light to fall behind your artwork display, our Standard Mount hanging system provides your artwork with a professionally lit effect.

We add 2″ of clear-space to ensure the Standard Mount 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.

All Hanging & Finishing Options

In addition to our Standard Mount with 1″ Stainless Steel Standoffs, Full Bleed Direct to Acrylic prints without a clear border are also available, or if you plan to add your own frame around your print you can also select “none” for your selected hanging option within the ArtisanHD Print Configurator.

PLEASE NOTE: We do our best to ensure that you are pleased with your print, from production to installation. Because of this, we are unable to offer either the Museum Mount or Float Mount hanging system with our direct to acrylic prints. As we’d be affixing these frames directly onto the printed ink layer on the back of your acrylic plexiglass print, which would be a possible ink adhesion failure point.

Best methods to clean a Trulife Acrylic print and/or plexiglass acrylic.2021-06-21T21:35:42-07:00

After creating your custom acrylic prints, you want to take every step you can to protect them. So what are the best methods to clean a Trulife Acrylic print and/or standard Plexiglass acrylic prints? If you’ve noticed that your artwork has been tainted with some slight smudging or dirt, start off by simply removing any surface debris.

Plastic cleaner is ideal along with a premium microfiber cloth. However, any gentle monitor or eyeglass cleaner will also work just as well. Important: Stay away from ammonia or alcohol-based cleaners, as well as paper towels – these products can scratch the surface.

Protect Your Trulife Acrylic Print & Standard Plexiglass with an Encapsulation Layer

encapsulate trulife acrylic print plexiglass acrylic

Want even more protection for your Trulife Acrylic print and/or Plexiglass Acrylic prints? Consider adding an encapsulation layer. It will offer both an additional layer of protection to your print PLUS opacity. Opacity is important when you choose a museum-back (hidden floating frame) since the back could create a darker (i.e. visible) line where the wooden frame touches the print.

Encapsulation Benefits:

  • Long-lasting durability
  • Opacity
  • Gallery-style look
  • Rigid, frameless finish

Protect your investment with the right cleaning products and an encapsulated print from ArtisanHD. Transform your artwork into long-lasting, museum-quality gallery prints.

When a print is mounted to a plexiglass design, is the museum back bonded directly to the back of the print?2021-06-21T21:39:48-07:00

Yes, when you select a plexiglass design and your print is directly mounted to the plexiglass, the museum mount is also bonded directly to the back of the print.

You also have the option to add another before the museum mounting. This is called Acrylic Print Encapsulation. If you are interested in this specialized plexiglass design and mounting option, please contact our Artisans directly at (877) 948-0009. We will gladly create a custom design and quote for you. No matter how your artwork is mounted and displayed on your walls, the plexiglass print will make your images truly  shine and stand out!

What’s a substrate and direct to substrate printing?2017-10-27T16:17:55-07:00

Substrate refers to the kind of surface upon which a print is mounted. Direct to substrate printing refers to printing an image directly on the surface rather than the image printed on HD photo paper, then mounted to the substrate. In the case of direct to Plexiglass or acrylic prints, the substrate is Plexiglass.

Direct to Substrate PrintingWho Uses Direct to Substrate Printing?

Substrate surfaces are so versatile and durable that they are used by professional artists, galleries, museums, framing shops and specialized printers to enhance the artistry and uniqueness of a photo or fine art piece. Professional mounting finished the artwork and makes it display as if its in a gallery.

ArtisanHD direct to print acrylic

We offer two types of plexiglass or acrylic prints: direct to print and paper mounted.

Direct to Print

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.

Paper Mounted

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 is called paper mounted and covers 100% of the plexi. It is mounted with a museum back.

How can I ensure long-lasting hd photo prints?2017-10-27T16:25:09-07:00

To help your hd photo prints last as long as possible, follow a few simple tips. Keep your digital prints away from any environment that has excessive moisture or heat. Protect your hd photo printsTo 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. You can dust your hd photo prints with a feather duster or a lint-free damp cloth. Because acrylic glass surfaces can be easily scratched, take care to be very gentle when you clean them.

What is “plexi”?2017-10-27T16:29:25-07:00

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?

Family Photo Gift Ideas, Photos on AcrylicWhen your image is printed direct to the substrate surface, such as acrylic or a board, the uv-cured ink bonds to the surface.

    Acrylic print off 2017 eclipse

    Trey Brown

    The print is stunning, and mounting was very easy. We had a small mix-up with the brackets, as I didn’t realize they were inside a pocket carved into the Styrofoam. When I couldn’t find them, the team at ArtisanHD shipped a replacement set overnight, at the same time they clarified where to find the original. Lesson learned — pull out all the Styrofoam if you don’t see the brackets immediately.

    To sum up, as everyone else has said, this is a museum quality print at an affordable price, and the service is amazing. Thanks guys!

    Fantastic Product!

    Ann S.

    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!

    The professionalism I've always wanted for my work

    Adam F.

    The quality of my photos is brought to another level with the direct-to-plex option. The museum mounts are an absolute must. I was able to put my show up in hours instead of days. I can’t say enough for what Artisan has done to bring the impact and professionalism I’ve always wanted to my work. People are always requesting referrals when they see how my work has been printed and mounted. Artisan customer service is of the highest caliber. The turnaround time is stellar, I’ve ordered last minute and still always had time to meet my deadline.

    Top Notch - Will Return Again & Again

    Starla J.

    I made a mistake in the image I ordered. It was totally my fault. I called and spoke to an individual who worked with me to get a picture I was happy with and then gave me a discount. Not only was I incredibly pleased with the personal help i received, the quality of the image, packaging and mounting hardware was top notch. I will be doing business with this company again and again.

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!
