Acrylic, or plexiglass, is a plastic composite material that has a clear, smooth surface. It is superior to glass in some ways because it is lightweight, does not chip, crack or have a green tint. Acrylic is used for transmounting. Our transmounting process involves bonding the face of a print to the underside of the acrylic using an optically clear transmount film. The result is a prestigious and sturdy product, which offers excellent physical protection. There is also the option of mounting on top of the acrylic, which is another way of using this material for mounting. The smooth surface is ideal for fine art and photography. Acrylic sheets come in 4′ x 8′ standard sheets, as well as oversized sheets. Roll stock is also available for larger custom sizes.

Canvas Transfer & Stretching
Stretching your canvas prints around a solid and sturdy stretcher frame is a sleek and modern way to display your work. We can supply stretcher frames of various thicknesses and sizes. We offer two canvas printing proceses: Direct to Canvas and Canvas Transfer. The process of transferring a canvas print, is when the emulsion backing on a photographic image is stripped and then heat bonded to canvas. We use our heat matte lamination for transfering, which will acquire the texture of the canvas. The final result produces an artistic and unique look, which is also archival and water resistant. We also print directly to archival canvas on both our HP Inkjet and Mimaki solvent printers.
