A ROMANCE IS BREWING.
Direct Print on Acrylic Decorative Plexi are great for homeowners who are looking to decorate their walls, or for commercial, office and retail settings, as well as entry-level photographers and artists who are looking to test the acrylic medium. A Direct Print on Acrylic Decorative Plexi has the same frameless yet powerful look as Fine Art Grade PlexiFoto but differs mostly in the technique by which the image is applied to the Plexiglass. Direct Print on Acrylic Decorative Plexi may also be used for promotional products, locations, or elegant signage and logos.
GOOD TO KNOW:
The best name brand materials are sourced from the best vendors in the industry
Meticulous attention detail paired with the best materials ensures a dust and bubble free print
Comparable look and feel to a Fine Art Grade Acrylic PlexiFoto
Excellent for medium-term (5 years+) printing
Durability & Brilliance with a UV-cured ink printing process
Crystal clear and subtle depth of 1/8” (3mm) which protects and promotes the range of color
RIGID. DURABLE. LIGHTWEIGHT. STUNNING. HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Direct Print on Acrylic Decorative Plexi is achieved by laying down a sheet of framing grade plexiglass (acrylic) onto our Fuji Acuity UV flatbed printer and ink is sprayed directly onto the substrate and then cured by trailing UV lights. Thus the image is printed directly onto the rigid substrate (the acrylic). While a Direct Print on Acrylic Decorative Plexi looks equally stunning, the archivability, resolution and color gamut are slightly less refined than the Fine Art PlexiFoto combination.

Will the Plexiglass yellow over time?
In short, no. Have you ever seen a bar top with resin that has yellowed over the years? Plexiglass will not suffer the same fate because it transmits 92% of visible light. In an aging study, it was determined that in the span of over 10 years in the harshest sunlight, Plexiglass will only lose about 2% of its clarity which you cannot detect with the naked eye. In fact, Plexiglass is so clear you can look through the edge of a thick sheet and read a business card easily. During World War II, acrylic/plexiglass sheets were used in aircraft manufacturing and those old planes have been sitting in the sun for 60 years and the plexiglass is still clear. The nature of acrylic is what helps the final Direct Print on Acrylic Decorative Plexi print to look so vibrant. We also always invest in name brand, high-quality plexiglass sheets to ensure your print will look its absolute best.
Is plexiglass the same as acrylic?
Similar to how there are many varieties of wood and metals out there, there’s a lot of variety in plastics. Acrylic is the generic name for the optically clear plastic known as clear methyl methacrylate resin. Names such as Plexiglas, Plexiglass, Plexi, Plexi Glass, Flexi Glass, Perspex, Polycast, Lucite, Optix and Acrylite are all synonyms and brand names for different acrylic sheets. All these terms are interchangeable for this thermoplastic material.
How do I clean my Decorative Plexi print?
To clean you print on plexi do not use Windex or any cleaner with ammonia or alcohol. Doing so will cause your plexiglass to become opaque over time. We recommend cleaners such as a Novus. If none of these are readily available a little bit of dish soap and water with a soft, non-abrasive cloth will also work.
I’m worried my photo will not look sharp enough or that there isn’t enough resolution. How can I check?
You can send us your digital image and we will check the resolution and sharpness for you. From our website go to the Photo Paper tab and choose Photo Analysis. If you prefer to email us your image, send it to email@example.com simply let us know the final size you intend to print and we'll take it from there. This a free and fast service we provide to have your image professionally analyzed before you print.
