    Default Acrylic art prints?

    Hello all,
    I have a few paintings of my own, and I was in search of an art printing to decorate my home. I wanted an alternative to the traditional photographic prints, and that is when I heard about acrylic art prints. I have heard that it has a vibrant glass like surface, and features brightened and enriched image colors, and it has more quality than the other canvas printing. So, I am planning to get my canvas done with acrylic prints. But, I have a few questions to ask. What would be the average cost of this? Since, I am planning to hang one of them in my bathroom, I would like to know if that is fine? And what is the largest size that can be printed? I am looking forward to some expert suggestions on this. Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the forum. I was trying to understand your questions about acrylic prints. I don't understand what you mean by "planning to get my canvas done with acrylic prints". Do you mean take a photo of your painting in order to be able to upload it to the printing service who will print it and then bonded to acrylic? The acrylic coating would act somewhat like glass over a framed print, except that the acrylic is touching the photo with no mat. This makes a difference in the way the art reflects light, and can make the colors appear brighter. As far as hanging in a bathroom, of course the acrylic would protect the artwork, and could easily be cleaned of spray or water droplets. According to the website you linked, there does not seem to be a limit to the size you can print assuming your photo is at a high enough resolution. The costs are reasonable enough in my opinion and are also noted on the website. I have used Online Photo Printing | Canada's Photo Art Experts | Posterjack myself in the past and found the quality and service to be very adequate. Hope this helps. If you have further questions someone on this forum will likely respond. If you post some photos of what you are proposing we can help you even more.
