Acrylic glass printing, how to select the right scale  


There is a rule that you can use when planning a custom acrylic glass printing your artwork.

It shouldn’t be more significant than the piece of furniture it is hanging above.

You also do not want it to be small for the area as it will look lost.

Some say to make your artwork smaller than your couch! Breaking rules with a particular style of image is FUN and looks great!

The goal is to create balance, and your wall art should look at home in the space.

For example, if you have a massive blank wall, don’t adorn it with a small, single artwork.

Instead, use a more significant piece or group several smaller ones together will work in the space for a harmonic balance.

Does Size matter?

Getting the scale right with acrylic glass printing is as important as the art itself. Achieve the perfect room by following a few rules.

In bedrooms, for instance, the artwork should fit within the space the bed takes up.

If it to small it will look lost. The best way to check is to make a template out of paper and blue tack it into space.

How to create a gallery collection with acrylic glass prints.

Can you hang portrait and landscapes and different sizes together?

The answer is yes; you can here is how you do it.

  • Colour palette in a way to achieve a unified selection and will tie your random sized gallery collection together.
  • With acrylic glass printing, the colours will pop and work best if you follow colour palate combinations.
  • Hot, pop and bright, fun and energetic colours work together.
  • Black and white abstract or minimalist will look great in a casual galley style hanging style. Soft pastels colours for calm and relaxed flow.

How do I know what to hang first?

  • Lay your acrylic prints out on the floor first. Play with arrangements by the image story or by what looks best. Leaving an even amount of space between each piece.
  • Butcher’s paper is a great way to measure and cut templates to the size of each artwork.
  • Copying the layout you’ve arranged on the floor, use blu tack or masking tape to attach the templates to the wall.
  • Mark, the hanging points with a pencil, then drill your hanging hardware positions using the shapes. Remove the template as you hang each artwork.

Hanging is secure and all prints come with hanging instructions.
