Berlin, Germany — The Original Photo Print Under Acrylic from WhiteWall, the online photo lab, is synonymous with gallery quality in the comfort of one's own home. With either matte or glossy acrylic, customers on WhiteWall.com can choose between three different photo papers, guaranteeing the perfect finish for every picture. At either 1/16” or 1/4” thick, the acrylic creates an impressive effect of depth. Every acrylic piece is made-to-order in the exact size the customer specifies and can be framed if desired.
As seen in galleries, a True Photo Print Under Acrylic is a real eye-catcher. WhiteWall brings this same level of quality into the home. For this spectacular finish, the photo print is sealed by hand under a 1/16” or 1/4” thick pane of high gloss acrylic glass using a long-lasting elastic silicone. The advantage is that the silicone will never harden completely and adjusts to changes in temperature to avoid any flaws or disfiguration. The photo paper is then mounted to a 1/8” thick aluminum Dibond backing panel that ensures lasting stability. WhiteWall has two different surfaces to suit any image or room: glossy and matte. The glossy acrylic makes colorful pictures vibrant and lively, whereas the matte variation is particularly well-suited to painterly or muted colors.
Using just the right photo paper can help a work of art achieve its maximum expressive power. The premium paper Fuji Crystal DP II is suitable for any genre and particularly great for classical photographs. The ideal choice for black-and-white photos is Ilford B/W, which makes the white tones shine and gives the black hues a spellbinding depth. In combination with glossy acrylic, Kodak Metallic creates additional sparkle, perfect for giving high-contrast or nighttime photos an impressive, metallic sheen.
On WhiteWall.com, everyone can find the perfect photo finish for their home. From wall-filling pieces as large as 118”x71” (that’s nine and a half by nearly six feet!) to panoramas and round formats in exact custom sizes, these are entirely personal, true works of art. Other customization options include angled or rounded corners and over 100 hand-finished frame moldings for the perfect finish. Integrated picture hanging hardware makes it a snap to hang the artwork on the wall.
