Choosing The Best Print Material for Your Space

You moved out on your own, you got married, you bought a new place, you started a new business, you’re redecorating, congratulations! Whatever the reason, you have recently decided to add artwork to your space. If you are like most people you already have an idea of where on your wall you want to hang it, what colors scheme, genre and dimensions you want and are seeking out exactly that and won't stop until you find something perfect that fits your vision.


What tends to be an afterthought in this process is the print material. Pretty much everyone is familiar with the eloquent look of a framed print as well as canvas prints that provide a more edgeless, 3-d effect. But there are some newer, more innovative options in the game that haven’t yet caught on with the masses.


The Options


Acrylic

Acrylic Wall Art Prints are a relatively new player in the home décor industry. They are a thick plexiglass type material that has the art printed on the inside of the panel and appears much like glass while remaining much lighter, more durable and more cost effective. Acrylic also displays a super realistic and vibrant look to your art while giving off vivid colors that have to be seen to be believed.




Canvas

Believe it or not, canvas prints are still considered a newer and innovative player in the wall art prints category. They are a thin high grade canvas sheet that has the art printed directly on it and covered with a protective layer and is then stapled onto a wooden frame. It is super light, easy to hang, quite durable and very cost effective. Canvas prints also display a super high definition image while giving off stunning colors.


Metal

Metal prints are also a newer player in the wall art prints category. They are a thin high grade aluminum sheet that has the art printed directly on it and covered with a protective layer. It is super light, easy to hang, quite durable and very cost effective. Metal prints also display a super realistic and vibrant look to your art while giving off vivid colors that have to be seen to be believed.
