FAQ’s 

Acrylic Prints:

2) What brand of acrylic do you use?
We only use the Perspex™ brand, as this is British or European manufactured and is also considered to be the market leader in quality and performance.

2) Can you print onto acrylic with white ink?
Yes, our machines have white ink capability, for full edge to edge prints such as photographs, we will flood fill the back of the panel with white ink to make the image even more vibrant. We can also just back the data in white, to help logos or text stand out against darker backgrounds.

Technology in the large format printing industry has moved extremely fast over the last 10 years and we can now print faster and at a better quality than ever before. The saving on speed now makes printing on acrylic more cost effective, as a result leads to cheaper prices for the customer.

This does depend on several factors such as the weather and direct sunlight. Most signs will also last several years before you get any noticeable fading. You can also have a gloss or matt laminate put over the print, which will increase the lifespan of the sign. ~
