How to hang acrylic prints: the complete guide. Customers often ask, “How do you hang acrylic prints?” Here’s what you need to know. The acrylic print is one of our premium wall decor products. We reproduce your photo image with truly exceptional print clarity and stunningly rich colours. Then we cover it with a flawless sheet of acrylic glass that produces an entrancing depth effect – giving you that touch of true luxury. When customers have invested in an acrylic print, they want to be absolutely sure that they hang it up right. This article is to help you do just that. Note: There’s no significant difference in best hanging practice between our Acrylic and Acrylic Premium lines. This guide applies to both products. Contents in Brief: An Introduction to our Hanger Sets Using the Hanger Plate Using the Aluminium Backframe Other Methods You Can Use An Introduction to My-Picture.co.uk Hanger Sets Our acrylic print has a borderless design. This suits the minimalist, contemporary look of the print, and it’s also essential to the full “3D” effect produced by the acrylic glass. That’s why we recommend hanging techniques that match this stripped-down design. The less noticeable your hanging system is, the more your image will speak for itself. And it’s why we started selling our very own hanger sets as product accessories. We offer two different hanging solutions, both of which can be added to your order on the Choose Format page just after you upload your photo. Here’s a little about the two options: Hanger Plate This small metal plate comes with a layer of adhesive on one side (this will be coated with anti-adhesive paper) so the plate can stick to the back of your print. The other side has a ridge sticking out just far enough to be rested on screws or a hook on the wall. This hanger set also comes with rubber bumpers that will hold the print an even distance from the wall, avoiding scrape damage and creating a “floating” look. The hanger plate is recommended for small or medium prints. Aluminium Backframe If you select this robust metal frame, it comes already attached to your print. The rectangular frame is made up of four aluminium bars. Each bar has a hollow section in the middle, meaning that the top bar has a lip which can be rested on screws or a French cleat on the wall. The backframe is resilient enough to provide extra resistance to environmental factors such as temperature stress, preventing warping. The aluminium backframe is recommended for medium or large prints. Note: After you select a certain size format for your acrylic print, you’ll be offered only the hanger set(s) appropriate to that format. So there’s no need to worry about choosing the wrong option. How to Hang Acrylic Prints Using the Hanger Plate Full instructions: Step 1: Choose an area at the back of your print to attach your hanger plate (about a third of the way down is recommended). Rub this area with fine sandpaper then clean it with a lint-free cloth (e.g. microfibre cloth) dampened with meths. Wait for it to dry.

Step 6: Attach screws or a hook to the wall, then rest the ridge to the back of your plate on the screws or hook. Done! How to Hang Acrylic Prints Using the Aluminium Backframe Full instructions: Step 1: The aluminium backframe will have come ready attached to your print (so long as you selected it when placing your order!) Step 2: EITHER: Insert screws directly into the wall on a level plane. Check the screws aren’t wider apart than the open central part of your backframe’s upper bar.​ OR: Using screws, affix a French cleat evenly to your wall, making sure the cleat itself isn’t longer than the open central part of your backframe’s upper bar. Step 3: Rest the edge of the upper bar on the heads of the screws, or on the French cleat. Done! Further Information There are of course other hanging methods available, though we believe they all have clear disadvantages in comparison to our hanger sets. Here are two popular alternative methods: Metal posts. The contemporary look of steel mounting posts suits the acrylic print well. But these require drilling through the print so that the barrels can be attached – meaning that some image detail will inevitably be lost. Frames. As mentioned above, the borderless design of the acrylic print is an integral part of its appeal. Any frame will cover up the edges of your print, spoiling the unique depth effect that the acrylic glass produces. Please note: the two hanger plates can also be used for our other wall decoration products: Aluminium, Photo Board and Acrylic + Aluminium. Our prints can be weighty, so we recommend using rawl plugs when inserting screws into your wall. We also recommend using a stud finder to locate the upright timbers in your walls, helping you find the most resilient installation spots. And finally – if you’re yet to buy your acrylic print, you can do so here!
