Plexiglass is used for many things in our modern world but few people know that plexiglass can be used to make a beautiful art piece for your wall.  You can have one of your favorite digital photos enlarged and printed on a large format printer. Hewlett Packard and Epson are leading the way in this industry. Finding a printer who can professionally achieve the art of plexiglass photo mounting an enlarged print to plexiglass without showing dust particles isn’t easy. Face mounting to plexiglass is a very specialized process and is best left up to professionals who have years of experience doing this type of mounting. Bumblejax.com is a e-commerce website that specializes in this process as well as mounting prints to aluminum, mdf board and gatorboard.

Face mounting digital photo prints behind plexiglass, what is it and why is it becoming so popular?

Mounting digital photo prints behind plexiglass involves a specialized production process to glue the photo to the plexi. A double sided adhesive is used to coat the plexiglass and the print is then applied to the glue, image side down, so that you see the print through the plexiglass.

This mounting technique has become a wildly popular way for artist’s to display their photos in museums and galleries. This finishing technique seems to add a third dimension to the print and also makes the print intensely brilliant! There is something optically magical that takes place once the print is glued down to the plexi.
