Thick acrylic frames


Recommended Posts

I have seen lots of these thick (15mm) clear acrylic frames with a photo stuck to the back, popping up in gift shops nearby. It seems local artists and photographers are making them for sale to tourists. Good idea I thought.

I have found that we can get the acrylic cut to whatever size we like from suppliers, but has anyone discovered what glue to use - after all it goes on the emulsion side of the print as this is stuck face on and you look through to see the image.

Any ideas would be great :)

Have you had a look at the ones sold by Lion, they are really nice but they are a sandwich of the 2 peices of acrylic together.  I did try them but unfortunately they were not too successful for me, more for the trendy younger market (most of my regulars are 100 plus ;D)

The other type is almost laminated by a machine onto the acrylic.  Cant remember the name of the company I saw at Focus but maybe Lion could also help?
