Materials our customers can pick

We offer a range of different sizes and materials for every product. You can choose your your favorite size and material among the following options:

  • Canvas: A canvas print, which shall not be confused with an artwork painted on a canvas, is an image printed from an industrial printing machine. Canvas prints are relatively low in weight, which means that it is easy and straightforward to hang the Canvas print without additional wall-mounts. Therefore, a canvas print is suitable for any kind of wall.
  • Poster print (canvas material): The poster is a printed canvas paper with a slight surface structure, which reminds the actual version of the artwork. Please note, that depending on the size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin of around 2-6cm around the painting, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.
  • Acrylic glass print (with real glass coating on top): The print on acrylic glass, which is sometimes labelled as a an art print on plexiglass, will convert an artwork into lovely décor and offers a distinct alternative option to canvas and aluminidum dibond fine art replicas. The work of art will be printed with the help of state-of-the-art UV direct printing machines. This has the image effect of vibrant, sharp colors. Our real glass coating protects your selected fine art print against light and external influences for many more years.
  • Aluminium dibond print: This is a metal print manufactured on alu dibond material with a true depth. The Direct Print on Aluminum Dibond is your perfect start to art reproductions on aluminum. The colors are luminous, the details appear clear and crisp, and you can really perceive a matte appearance of the fine art print. The print on aluminium is the most popular entry-level product and is a truly sophisticated way to display art, because it puts 100% of the viewer’s focus on the replica of the artwork.
