  1. Hi All
    Not sure if this the right place but here goes!

    Am I am looking at getting Aluminium prints or Acrylic prints of my artwork? What your thoughts on them and what Lab did you use, please? Do you feel there any better than C-Type or Giclee prints for artwork?

    I look forward to hearing your thoughts

    Regards

    Hello, most of my printing is done with a Chromira on Fuji Super Gloss. I tried an Acrylic print and though it turned out very nice it was very heavy (0.25" acrylic). I also tried an aluminum print which was much lighter. Depending on how big one prints and where one wants to hang these this might be a consideration. Visually both are nice, the aluminum print might offer brighter highlights, depending on the subject. Also, the durability of the acrylic prints is much greater. I used West Coast Imaging, which is now called Metal&Paper Pro. Regards.
