Which kind of fine art print materials can I choose?

In the product dropdown menu you can choose your individual material and size. We allow you to pick your favorite size and material among the following product individualization options:

  • Poster (canvas material): A poster is a UV printed canvas paper with a slightly roughened structure on the surface. Please keep in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin 2-6cm round about the print, which facilitates the framing with a custom frame.
  • Canvas print: The UV printed canvas material mounted on a wooden frame. A canvas print has the advantage of being low in weight. This means, it is easy and straightforward to hang up your Canvas print without the support of additional wall-mounts. Because of thata canvas print is suited for any kind of wall.
  • Aluminium dibond print: These are metal prints on aluminium dibond with an outstanding depth. A direct Direct Print on Aluminum Dibond is your best introduction to fine prints on alu. For the Direct Print On Aluminum Dibond, we print your selected artpiece right on the aluminium surface. This print on Aluminum Dibond is one of the most demanded entry-level products and is a truly sophisticated way to showcase art, since it puts the viewer’s focus on the artwork.
  • Acrylic glass print (with real glass coating): A glossy acrylic glass print, which is often labelled as a plexiglass print, makes your favorite original work of art into marvellous décor. In addition, it makes a viable alternative option to dibond or canvas prints. The work of art is printed with state-of-the-art UV direct printing technology. This has the image effect of vibrant and sharp colors. The great advantage of an acrylic glass print is that contrasts and granular artwork details will be recognizeable due to the granular gradation.

Please bear in mind that some tone of the printed materials and the printing might diverge somehwat from the image on the device's monitor. Depending on your settings of your screen and the condition of the surface, color pigments may not be printed one hundret percent realistically. In view of the fact that all are processed and printed manually, there might as well be minor differences in the motif's exact position and the size.
