Print on Perspex - Acrylic glass

Posted by Joe Lategan on Tuesday, February 11, 2014, In : Framing options 

Acrylic Glass – Perspex.

Reverse printing onto Perspex gives images a high gloss finish and an almost 3 dimensional look. Four layers of ink are printed on the reverse of 2mm thick Perspex and when the white ink option is turned off with Perspex printing, it allows the white areas in the design/image to be transparent.

Hanging mechanisms are attached to our Perspex prints for easy hanging.

It particularly enhances the artistic feel of images captured specifically with this method in mind as an end product.

 When printing onto Aluminium the white ink option ...

Artography

Posted by Joe Lategan on Thursday, February 6, 2014, In : Joe Lategan General 

As far as I'm concerned, "Artography" is a Photographic technique and form of rastering where no filters have been used and only light frequencies ( spectrum)  visible to the  human eye altered.

Subtle colours allow for larger colour variety when selecting boards and frame types. Colour ranges (within the photos) can also be altered for differen...
