Photo blocks & Perspex frames

Acrylic (often referred to as Perspex, or Plexiglass), is a lighter and less fragile alternative to glass. Facemounting means that a photograph is professionally bonded directly to the acrylic, producing an extremely clear and bright image. The result is a stunning, three dimensional look modern art work. Perfect for punchy home or office decor, and a truly magical gift for a special occasion.

Gloss and metallic papers are the most suitable materials for acrylic facemounting, as the fine texture of lustre paper hinders bonding. Metallic paper gives a silver sheen to white tones, so if crisp, bright whites are your preference, please choose gloss.


Iceblocks

These are 30mm thick  blocks of UV-resistant acrylic glass with your (gloss or metallic) photograph face mounted to the back of the block, eliminating reflections. The result is a sparkling, freestanding piece of art, perfect to give as a gift for a wedding or anniversary. Includes a black gift box.

HOW THEY’RE MADE:

All photographs are my own work. I have them printed at a professional photo lab in the same city I live in. Once I have proofed the photos (in person), they are assembled into blocks by the lab and inspected by me. They are packaged and sent from my own home, not drop shipped.

Due to the hand assembly of this piece, occasionally some tiny bubbles or dust can appear between the photo and acrylic, but this is rare. The block has sharp corners and should be kept out of the way of small children.

TURNAROUND TIME:

Iceblock turnaround time is approximately 3 weeks – up to 14 days for proofing & manufacture and approximately 10 working days for postal delivery (subject to your location and postal holidays). You are advised to order well in advance (5wks) of any deadlines you need to meet and mention these in your written communication to me.

HOW TO ORDER:

You can order by emailing me, or if you prefer to purchase via Etsy, I can create a custom listing for you.


Facemount acrylic frames

Sharp, intense, high gloss images are achieved by face mounting the photograph to the back of thin, UV-resistant acrylic glass. There’s a U channel so you can easily hang these (preferably out of direct sunlight due to the highly reflective nature of them!). These can be enjoyed alone, but create amazing impact when several are hung together. Perfect for your reception area or anywhere you want to make a big impression.

TURNAROUND TIME:

Facemounted frame turnaround time is approximately 3 weeks (this may be longer during peak industry periods such as wedding season, APPA/WAPPA time, and major holidays).

Prices do not include postage which will be calculated based on weight, location and deadlines. Facemounted acrylic prints are available for quote, custom printing, packaging and delivery within the Perth metro area on request. Delivery outside of the Perth area can be made if you have a reliable, safe, and fully insured courier service to collect them for you at your own risk and expense.
