Acrylic Facemounts | True Photographic Prints

What is an acrylic facemount? An acrylic facemount is a true photographic print facemounted to an optically clear sheet of acrylic glass. This process gives the print an almost 3D feel and is the highest quality method of displaying photography available in the world today. When you combine a metallic photo print with the acrylic, the crystals in the paper illuminate when any light is present making the art seem like it is lit from behind. This method is the most archival and accepted by museums and galleries worldwide. The acrylic also filters 98% of UV light to prevent the print from fading over time. The standard and crowd favorite is a glossy acrylic finish but, we do also have a non-glare option available by request if glare is a concern where the art will be displayed.

Care and Handling

We recommend using a quality microfiber towel with water or an acrylic cleaner to clean your print if needed. Several acrylic cleaners we recommend are Novus or Plexus. Both are anti-static and repel dust so once you clean it with these products, you generally won't have to again. Do not use paper towels as it's possible to create fine scratches or swirls with them.

    Metal Prints | Brilliant Contemporary Art

    My images are also available in an open edition as metal prints in various sizes (and even different shapes). Metal Prints are a relatively new print process where dyes are infused into aluminum sheets using heat and pressure. This process is called dye-sublimation and is the most durable medium available. Metal prints are very lightweight, scratch resistant, totally waterproof and fade and UV resistant. I've had collector's put metal prints in saunas, showers, even underwater in a pool! Metal Prints also come ready to hang with a 3/4" aluminum frame on the back of the print with a french cleat hanging system.

    Metal Fusion Prints

    If you've been to my gallery recently, then you've most likely seen the Metal Fusion wave prints in person. Printed on a brushed aluminum, they have a very 3D appearance and change in the room from different angles. They have a non-glare finish so there's no need to worry about reflections. Anything white in the photograph, actually comes through as brushed metal for something totally unique and modern. They're finished with the same aluminum subframe on the back as the Acrylic Facemounts and Metal Prints.
