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.

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...
