Fine art products: Back printed acrylic
Fine Art Products from SpeedPro
Back printed acrylic fine art prints with standoffs are a beautiful and ergonomic way to display artwork in any setting. Acrylic is a lightweight and durable substrate material made from a multi-functional plastic sheet with a glossy finish. Acrylic is hard and sturdy and similar to glass when clear prior to printing. Acrylic is the best choice for displaying fine art in a way that is refined and high-tech. Back printing the acrylic ensures the longevity of the print by adding an extra layer of protection on the surface above the graphic. Printing directly to acrylic delivers high-resolution images with durability and unmatched detail.
Standoff mounts are a way to hang prints securely to wall surfaces using a system of threaded studs, tabletop screws, hanger bolts, clear vinyl washers, covering caps and standoff barrels. In action, a standoff mount makes the acrylic print appear to float off the wall. In gallery settings standoff mounts are often considered to be more secure than simply hanging a piece of art using the traditional wire hang method. Secure both in the sense that the print is less likely to be knocked off due to a calamity like an earthquake or nearby traffic collision and in the sense that it is much harder for the print to be removed by someone who wants to possess the fine art without paying for it. Standoff mounts are the mounting choice of most business offices, hotels, hospitals and restaurants.
When deciding how to display a fine art print you may decide that you do not want the mounts to overlap with any of the art. An easy solution to this is to add a one to two inch clear border to the design of the print so the standoff cap and barrels do not obscure any of the artwork. In effect, this choice can make the art appear even more like it is floating away from the wall.
Upon request we can ensure that your print is made completely with UV Ink that once exposed to UV light is transformed into a thin layer of plastic that acts as a top layer to the substrate upon which it has been applied. Deciding to make this choice is recommended for those who want to display their prints outdoors or in direct sunlight as the UV ink will remain durable and un-faded for an extended period of time.
The benefits of using back printed acrylic for your fine art prints are manifold. Acrylic is a versatile material that effectively displays vivid colors, varied dimensions and detailed etchings. If desired the acrylic can be designed with different layers of transparency to better display details of the print. Due to the lightweight properties of acrylic fine art prints using the material are convenient to install and easy to transport while not negatively affecting the durability. In point of fact, acrylic is a common choice of material for outdoor signs as it is well prepared to handle the elements while maintaining vibrant images. The combination of acrylic with the standoff mounts means that the art can be of a larger size than originally designed and therefore cover a greater area of your display gallery.
Once you have determined where and how to hang your acrylic fine art print with standoff mounts it is important to consider the lighting of the room and the display area. If desired the black printed print can also be back-lit using installed LEDs to illuminate graphics. The effect can be done in a lightbox style where the LED lights are positioned inside a box or on a back-plate, via a stencil cut installed in the prints back panel, in a face illuminated style where the design is lit from within, in a halo manner where back-lights are installed behind the entire image in a 360-degree glow or with neon tubes. Examples of each of these design choices are available for view at your local SpeedPro location.
