Which product material do you like most?

We offer a range of various sizes and materials for every product. Hence, we allow you to choose among the following options:

  • The poster print (canvas material): Our poster is a printed canvas with a slightly rough surface finish. It is excellently designed for placing the art replica in a custom-made frame. Please bear in mind, that depending on the size of the poster we add a white margin of something between 2-6cm round about the print to facilitate the framing with your custom frame.
  • Printed acrylic glass (with real glass coating): The print on acrylic glass, often described as a plexiglass print, transforms the original into brilliant wall decoration and forms a distinct alternative to aluminium and canvas fine art replicas. The work of art is made thanks to the help of modern UV direct print machines. The great upside of a plexiglass fine art print is that sharp contrasts plus smaller image details will be identifiable due to the very fine gradation in the print. The acrylic glass protects your selected art print against sunlight and heat for decades.
  • Aluminium print (aluminium dibond): An Aluminium Dibond print is a print with an impressive depth. For the Direct Aluminium Dibond print, we print your favorite artpiece right onto the surface of the white-primed aluminum composite. The colors are luminous, the details are very clear, and there’s a matte look you can literally feel.
  • The canvas print: A UV printed canvas material stretched on a wooden stretcher frame. Canvas Prints have the great advantage of being low in weight, meaning that it is quite simple to hang your Canvas print without the support of extra wall-mounts. Canvas prints are suited for any kind of wall.

Disclaimer: We try the best we can to describe our art products as accurately as possible and to illustrate them visually. At the same time, the pigments of the printing material and the printing may vary marginally from the presentation on the monitor. Depending on the settings of your screen and the condition of the surface, not all colors will be printed as exactly as the digital version on this website. Because our art reproductions are printed and processed by hand, there may also be slight differences in the size and exact position of the motif.
