Just letting everyone know about Four Blank Walls. They have been printing onto 10mm perspex (acrylic prints) or the last 7 years and were the first to coin the idea. They offer trade discounts to photographers and print photo realistic perspex rather than the more shabby direct print jobbies.

Prices start at 69.00 for a large piece trade. Make sure to ask for Trade prices tho and ask for a deal if you are ordering more than say three pieces at one time.

Acrylic printing seems to be very expensive. I have found this company called ESJ Designs that sell acrylic printing at cheap prices. A3 @ 40, A2 @ 79, A1 @ 120. These prices include delivery as well. I had an A2 done and the quality was excellent. White is not printed so the image needs hanging against a light coloured wall. The image is printed direct onto the acrylic.

69.00 is not too expensive for a large piece trade...... I will try it with deal. I think its better to buy 1 large piece....


Thanks for sharing.

Acrylic prints just are expensive. The base material isn't cheap in the first place. Photobox prices are pretty competitive I think.
Have you considered getting a print onto metallic paper? These have a lovely surface quality and almost glow. They might suit your subject well.

I should think this is the same with at least most acrylics, but I'm not quite positive about that. If anyone knows why acrylic would not be an archival mounting surface from a chemical reactive standpoint, please explain in detail.

The only way I would think, in theory at least, that glass or acrylic, if used for mounting would be harmful would be either by way of thermal expansion, ie. due to a large coefficient of thermal expansion, or by way of transmittance of UV, light, or other EM radiation.
