Hi I am looking at large landscape (50") one printed.
I have had a search about with Google and searched on here, from what I now understand I have three options
1, A regular print glued to acrylic
2, Printed sticky backed plastic attached to acrylic
3, Direct print to acrylic
My feeling is direct print would be better (the others could wrinkle on the mount points?) does anybody have experience of or a preference?
And lastly would you recommend anybody?
Sorry for all the questions but £200 plus on one print, I value your experience over a search engine.

Hi...occasionally toyed with this idea myself so watching thread with interest, but my feelings are it's 'gotta be 3.
Agreed but suppliers are a shall we say thin on the ground
Kev, I have never had an acrylic print done but for any important prints I use http://loxleycolour.com/acryliclifestyle.aspx
Give them a ring they will advise you on which is best. They ain't the cheapest in the world but quality is foremost.
I've had a few acrylic prints done and for me whitewall was the best. One aspect to consider which is not well documented by the vendors is how the acrylic attaches to the wall.
Whitewall's method which uses metal runners is very secure and stable, and well engineered. Photobox was a couple of cheap blocks of wood, although the print itself looked fine.
I have an acrylic print done by Loxley - they have a good variety of styles and great quality - highly recommended.
Let me know if you find someone who can do 50" acrylics, that's pretty big!
Loxley seem to do 5mm I doubt that will be rigid enough? I will call them tomorrow
Crikey this is getting tough, nobody returns calls nowadays? So much for a recession they must be so busy?
OK after lots more investigation and a trip to Focus to actually meet someone and not relay on an email or phone call. I am about the receive my acrylic from The Print Foundry. They seem competitive on price and very helpful in the information side. More than I can say about the other shower who I ordered with mid December and to date have rang me oh let me count 0 times despite many many chase calls and jokes about missed deal lines and of course you will have it by Easter!! My shutter button! Still lesson leaned and looking forward to tomorrow.
