Acrylic Prints have vivid colors and an amazing sense of depth which is almost like looking through a window. The light that is reflected off the print is visually "trapped" within the acrylic and when properly lit, appears to be illuminated or back-lit. Acrylic prints are created by face mounting a metallic gloss paper print on to a sheet of 3/16 inch cast acrylic sheet. A shadow mount is then attached to the back of the acrylic print for a frameless contemporary display. Acrylic prints are rated to have an archival life of 80 years or more.
