STARTING MARCH 1ST, WE ARE OFFERING TRUE SILVER BASED BLACK AND WHITE FIBER BASED PRINTS,
We do acrylic printing two ways: Acrylic Face Mounting and Block Mounting. Both of these processes created beautiful results that can only be seen in person.
Acrylic Face Mounting- An eye popping modern and sleek way to display your images.
A silver based photographic print is mounting directly to the face of the acrylic and is then backed with an aluminum composite backer and a hanger is added.
Print-We beleive for this process, the only prints that do it justice, are true glossy photographic prints. The subject matter,dictates which paper the image will look the best on.
Paper choices for Face Mounting
-Fuji Crystal Archive-Pearl Metallic (Don't let the name deceive you-it's super glossy)
-Fuji Crystal Archive Flex

-Acrylic is graded and we offer 1 grade. We can us any type of acrylic the customer requests, just call us with your request.
For simplicity, we have decided1 grade.It is museum grade,added uv protection and will cover most peoples needs. Many companies using acrylic don't even mention acrylic grading, this to us means they are using something not worth mentioning. Good acrylic is expensive. Thick/good acrylic is expensive. We only use acrylic with professionally sanded amd polished edges. Without edge polishing, the true beauty of the product is lost.
Backing- We use only dibond or comparable aluminum composite. This substance is super rigid and has a modern sleek. We normally use 6mm dibond. We also can use 3mm or 4mm upon request. Dibond is quickly becoming the it thing with galleries and museums.
Hanging- For sizes 8x10 and bigger, we use a black metal subframe. The subframe is inset 3 inches.
Acrylic Block Mounting-Maybe the closest to 3-d printing yet.
We use a 1 inch thick ultra clear block and directly mount a true photographic print for a dazzeling 3-d like image.This image can be backed with multiple types of substances from dibond,frame backing, or sintra. We can also add a subframe for hanging. If adding the subframe , we suggest using 3mm dibond. We are currently working on an alternate hanging systems.
-1 and 1.1/4 inch acrylic blocks -professionally routed,sanded and professionally polished.
-True Glossy laser photographic print-laser embedded photo paper developed in real photo chemicals- no ink
-Cold Mounted using ultra clear adhesive which adds extra uv protection.
**A special note about acrylic edges. We have gone thru a few suppliers of acrylic. Finally we are getting our products from one of the leaders of the industry. They are provided us with "showroom quality "edges. These edged are like glass to look thru and really make the images pop. Why mount directly to acrylic without edge polishing? This acrylic is more costly, but you get what you pay for!
