Acrylic printing in Australia is called several names, such as an acrylic face or photo mount.
Plexiglas (plexiglass), lucite or perspex are brand names of acrylic sheets.
There are two distinct processes of acrylic printing –
- Direct printing on to the material
- Printing onto paper and then face-mounted onto acrylic. Face mounting is more complicated and more expensive but well worth it.
