Installation of Acrylic & Metal Prints

Hanging your Acrylic Print with the French Cleat System

Step 1: Use a level to place the unattached French Cleat in the desired position. Using a pencil, mark two holes on the wall. Drill pilot holes in the center of each circle and insert wall anchors. We recommend a 3/16” drill bit.

Step 2: With the sharp point away from the wall and pointed upwards, mount the French Cleat to the wall using the two 1/8” screws.

Step 3: Hang the French Cleat attached to your product onto the bottom half mounted to the wall. Your Acrylic Print is now locked firmly in position.

Proper storage is critical in minimizing the possibility of warping or edge curling. Store your wall art flat until ready to hang. Standing or leaning on your wall art for long periods before hanging may cause wall art to cold form or take the shape of an uneven surface. Place the art on a flat surface until ready to hang.

Care of Acrylic & Metal Prints

Caring for your Acrylic Print

Your Acrylic Print should only need occasional gentle dusting with a non-abrasive cloth. To remove any dirt or streaks, use a small amount of mild soap with water and rub gently with a clean, soft cloth. Follow up with a clean, damp cloth and dry by blotting with a soft cloth. Never use any products that contain ammonia or alcohol, as they will damage the acrylic. Novus #1 Cleaner can be used for cleaning acrylic to a beautiful glossy shine.

PLEASE NOTE: Do not use paper towels or other rough materials on acrylic. Never get the back of your Acrylic Print wet.

The Hygienic Properties of MetalPrints(TM)

MetalPrints Stand The Test Of Time… And Safety

MetalPrints – the most germ-resistant of them all! MetalPrint surfaces are crosslinked in nature, meaning there are no open or closed pores, so you can quickly and thoroughly clean them with various cleaners and disinfecting chemicals. As if we needed another reason to love MetalPrints!

Because MetalPrint surfaces are crosslinked, they provide protection equivalent to a closed cell surface, offering unmatched chemical and stain resistance. They are the ideal choice for spaces that demand the utmost hygienic cleanability and safety requirements possible ensure a safe environment for all who occupy the vicinity or make contact with the prints.

What Does “Crosslinked” Really Mean? The Chemical Process of Linking Polymer Chains

The chemical process that links polymer chains together is known as crosslinking. Thanks to our print lab partner, the aluminum material is coated and crosslinked even before our image is printed! What is the magic that happens at the print lab, then?

As the aluminum panels travel down their coating line, they reach a point in the proprietary process where a chemical reaction causes the polymers of the coating to join together (crosslinking!). As all the polymer strings are joined together end-to-end, they form one long and stable polymer string. MetalPrints are exceptionally durable, scratch resistant, chemical and stain resistant, color retention, fade resistant, and more.
