Acrylic or Aluminum? New Printing Styles.

New printing styles are always in fashion.   A few years ago giclée printing caused a sensation.  There was a huge shift in the art market as inexpensive works from great artists became available to the middle class at reasonable prices.

It’s the same with photographic art.  The recent developments in printing processes no longer need an artist or their collectors to pay extravagant fees for picture to look good.


Acrylic is distinctive. The acrylic print is a process of printing your image directly on the back of a 1/4″ thick sheet of clear acrylic. This produces a unique photographic work of art that is vibrant and deep without equal on glossy photo paper.   The incredible vibrancy is a result of  the acrylic allowing the natural light in the room to travel to the picture and illuminate it and not reflecting off the surface of a glass.

All of the acrylic prints offer you a choice of mounting preference. Your acrylic print can either be created with a series of mounting posts that allow it to sit about 1” from the wall, or with a hanging wire allowing easy picture style display at 1.5”  This elegant choice is always available to you.Yellow Brilliance


Eyes say yes but your wallet is crying? You want to know about metal printing on aluminum. Metal printing is a printing process that uses special dyes to print directly on the surface of aluminum sheets, making them scratch resistant and keep a vibrancy that will turn heads. The reflective nature of aluminum allows the light to show off of the surface cleanly giving the colors an incredible boost. Even black and white images are amazingly clean, crisp and give a visual pop to the variety of grey tones in an image.

Metal photo prints need no frame, giving your photos a sleek and advanced profile whether they’re hung on the wall in your home or office. The aluminum sheet is offset from the wall by a 3/4″ thick wooden frame, attached to the back.

If you’re looking for a lightweight, durable and water-resistant art print then the high gloss ¼” aluminum print is your natural choice.

Whether you are looking for top-notch vibrancy and an incredible look for your own personal satisfaction, or you are trying to impress that impossible to buy for family member, these fine art prints offered at our gallery is sure to have people asking about them.
