Frequently Asked Questions
Below you will find a list of the most commonly asked questions regarding our artwork.
An acrylic face mount is a frameless way to display art. A metallic or glossy print is sandwiched between a sheet of aluminium di-bond or sintra and a sheet of crystal clear acrylic. The three pieces are fused together to offer a unique and modern finish to our artwork.
Your piece will have enhanced color and a three dimensional appearance due to the acrylic being affixed directly to the print. The face mount is hung with an "invisible" floating frame that gives the appearance your print is floating off the wall.
No. Because the plexiglass, aluminium and/or sintra backing cannot be removed without damaging the print, plexi face mounting is not an archival or conservation display option. However, your image is printed using archival inks and top quality papers, and the plexiglass is UV-resistant.
There are many reasons to choose an acrylic piece instead of a regular framed print.
By attaching the acrylic directly to the print, a sense of depth is achieved resulting in an almost 3D effect. Reflections may also be diminished compared to a regular framed image.
Sometimes with regular glass covering your prints, the result can be a dull image. With a face mount, the combination of the glossy or metallic paper and the high shine acrylic results in vivid, rich colors every time.
Your face mount is created using the same top of the line inks, papers, and acrylic used in custom framing. This means the image is equal to a framed print in longevity and quality.
Once the image is mounted onto the acrylic, there is no chance of moisture, dust, or other problematic particles working their way between the clear cover and your print - the image will remain just as uninterrupted and clear as the day it was delivered.
Your artwork can be cleaned with a soft cloth and water. Do not use window/glass cleaner. Ensure the cloth is free of debris that might scratch the plexiglass. If you feel you need more than water, cleaners especially for acrylic glass can be found online and in certain stores.
