Acrylic mounting is a process which involves applying an optically clear adhesive to the surface of the photo print then transferred to the print to acrylic, otherwise known as plexiglass. Once the print is transferred to the acrylic, a backing material like Sintra is adhered to the back of the print to support the print and provide extra rigidity to the piece. The backing provides the surface to adhere the hanging and floating frame which provides that modern, floating off the wall look.
This is an excellent choice for differentiating yourself from the rest of your colleagues. Acrylic face mounting gives prints a very fashion and sharp look which is great for showing your work.
