Select the material of your choice

The product dropdown list ofers you the opportunity to pick a material and a size of your choice. We allow you to pick your favorite size and material among the following product individualization options:

  • Poster (canvas material): The Artprinta poster is a UV printed cotton canvas paper with a fine surface finish, which resembles the original artwork. Please keep in mind, that depending on the absolute size of the poster print we add a white margin between 2-6cm around the artwork, which facilitates the framing with a custom frame.
  • The acrylic glass print (with real glass coating): A glossy print on acrylic glass, which is often referenced as a UV print on plexiglass, makes the original artwork into stunning décor. Moreover, the acrylic print makes a great alternative to canvas or aluminium dibond art prints. Your work of art is being printed with the help of state-of-the-art UV direct print technology. This creates impressive, vivid colors. The major upside of a plexiglass fine art print is that contrasts and minor artwork details become more exposed because of the granular tonal gradation of the print.
  • The canvas print: The canvas print, which shall not be confused with a painting on a canvas, is a digital image applied on a canvas. Your canvas print of this artpiece will let you turn your art print into a large work of art as you know from galleries. Hanging your canvas print: Canvas prints are relatively low in weight. This means, it is quite simple to hang up the Canvas print without any wall-mounts. A canvas print is suitable for all types of walls.
  • Aluminium dibond print: Aluminium Dibond prints are prints on metal with an impressive depth. The Direct Print on Aluminum Dibond is the ideal introduction to art reproductions on aluminum. For your Aluminium Dibond option, we print your chosen artwork right onto the aluminium white-primed surface. The colors of the print are luminous and vivid, fine details of the print are clear and crisp.
