print on acrylic or on metal?
« on: March 08, 2013, 05:22:50 PM »
I want to make a couple of large landscape prints for my office.
Which type of print would you recommend between acrylic and metal?

Thanks!

There are many different types of metal to print on. Depends on the picture, but I favour a metal with a somewhat rough finish/texture.
1Dx, 5x600 EX RT, ST-E3, Canon:24-105L , 70-200L IS II, 135L, 2x III TC, 40 F2.8 STM, Sigma 35 F1.4 Art, Sigma 85 F1.4.
Canon A-1, 199A, FD: 24/2.8, 35/2.0, 100/2.8, Vivitar 400/5.6 Mamiya RZ67 pro ii, 50,110,180

  • How you relate to the issue, is the issue.

do you mean printing on acrylic or photo paper to which an acrylic surface is attached?

In the interest of adding to your confusion...I would check the specific printing company's equipment.
This method sure looks interesting..."AdobeĀ® Extreme Printing" and Progressive Printing with a DCS Direct Jet Flatbed Inkjet Printer
