Want to know how to print on acrylic? This article talks you through creating a beautiful home decor feature in acrylic glass.

Printing on acrylic involves using a specialised UV printer to reproduce the digital image directly on the print substrate. The UV inks cure instantly, resulting in a durable, glossy print with sharp details and vibrant colours – making acrylic printing ideal for premium home decor features.

The acrylic print sold here at MYPICTURE is one such premium option!

Printing on acrylic here at MYPICTURE is a simple process. Read the steps below to create your premium acrylic print!

Step 1: Choose a Digital Image to Print

Acrylic prints (also known as prints on perspex) are premium wall decor features, so they’re a great choice for your most special images, like professional wedding portraits and fine art photography. But of course you can choose any picture you want – your acrylic print will do justice to any cherished photo!

Because we’re an online provider, you’ll need to upload your image to our site in digital form. Nearly all modern pictures are digital, like those on your phone or PC.

But if you want to print an older physical photo, you’ll need to convert it to digital. Try one of the following methods:

Step 2: Upload Digital Image to Our Site

Go to our acrylic prints page and hit “UPLOAD PHOTOS” to start the process. You’ll be prompted to browse the device you’re using for a digital photo to upload.

Our system is automated. So when you uploaded your image, it’ll immediately be checked to make sure it’s suitable for our printing process. If it is, you’ll be taken straight to the product design page.

If there is an issue with your image file, you’ll see one of these error messages:

“Image resolution insufficient”:

This means the resolution of your photo is too low – meaning basically that it’s too small. Our acrylic prints are intensely detailed, so the original image needs to be quite large to allow for such high performance.

The minimum resolution needed for a MYPICTURE acrylic print is 580 x 580 pixels.

“Invalid file format”:

This means your image file is the wrong format. You need to upload your image as a .JPG, .JPEG, .PNG, or .GIF file.

Step 3: Design Your Print

After uploading you’ll be taken straight to our product design page. Now you just need to make a few simple design choices before your product is ready to order.

In the top-right corner you’ll see a mock-up of how the final result will look. Any design choices you make will be reflected in the mock-up.
