Glossary of Terms

Here’s an explanation of some of the terms you may see when shopping on our site

ACRYLIC– Sometimes referred to as Plexiglas- Hard, clear and flat – We print on the back of the acrylic. We offer 1/8″, 3/16″ and 1/4″ Thickness. Image clarity stays the same with any thickness. Images printed on the back of the acrylic are vibrant, rich and eye popping.

SINTRA– A 1/8 PVC board the we use in back of the acrylic so light does not come through. It also protects against scratching in the back.. If you order the 1/8 acrylic your total thickness will be ¼ “.. If you choose the hanging float option we suggest you choose the sintra option for sizes over 30-30.”If you choose the mount option, our base style, you can create an acrylic in any size without the added cost of sintra.

1″ mount option-Your acrylic is glued and taped to a one Inch mount .panel. The panel also gives the acrylic structure and rigidity. The sides of the mount option are covered with a black adhesive. Marketed as a economic option the 1″ mount enables consumers to buy large acrylics at a fantastic price.  Not the fanciest of options but the most cost effective.
