Looking for suggestions on large format (20"x30") acrylic printing..printed directly on the acrylic with standoff mounts. Potential client wants 1 of my images to fill a 8'x10' wall space...My idea is to break it up into 6 panels.

Thanks

I would think it depends on the photo content and decor of the room, etc. I have a 20 x 30 hanging in my LR and its just fine. Acrylic and/or splits are fine but may need a contemporary setting supporting them.

My wife has done several projects like this. She said one issue you run into with large sizes is availability of the substrate in appropriate dimensions, typical size being 4x8'. I believe the process they follow is to sandwich a print between 2 pieces of acrylic and then install the mounting system on the back. She's also done a project with a number of large prints on a transparency material which was backlit. This was for a show of Antarctica images that was named the best art exhibit in Atlanta a few years ago. I think for that they used some kind of LED backlighting system.

I was looking at bayphoto and priced their alum. Prints, the mounting appartus is the same, price is comparable. From what I have read there is 2 ways to do acrylic, print on paper and apply to the acrylic surface, and direct print to the acrylic, my preference is the direct method. There won't be a split between pieces, it will appear as 1 large image..

Would be easier just to do the one 20x30, cheaper too. Posterjack.ca does them with the standoff kits

Not when the wall space is 8'x10' and he wants to fill the space
