Your product product material choices

We offer a range of various materials and sizes for every product. Choose among the following product options now to match your preferences in size and material:

  • The poster print (canvas material): A poster is a printed sheet of flat cotton canvas paper with a fine structure on the surface. It is best designed for placing the art print with the help of a special frame. Please keep in mind, that depending on the size of the poster we add a white margin 2-6cm round about the print in order to facilitate the framing with your custom frame.
  • Printed acrylic glass with a glossy effect (with real glass coating on top): An acrylic glass print, often referred to as a plexiglass print, will transform your favorite original work of art into brilliant décor and forms a distinct alternative option to canvas or dibond fine art prints. With an acrylic glass art print sharp contrasts plus minor color details become exposed due to the fine gradation. The real glass coating protects your custom fine art print against sunlight and external influences for many years.
  • Aluminium dibond print: Aluminium Dibond prints are prints on metal with an impressive depth. For our Direct Print On Aluminum Dibond, we print your artwork right onto the surface of the white-primed aluminum composite.
  • The canvas print: The canvas direct print is a printed cotton canvas stretched on a wooden frame. In addition to that, a canvas print produces a cosy and appealing feeling. The advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight. This means, it is easy to hang your Canvas print without additional wall-mounts. Canvas prints are suited for all kinds of walls.
