Wall Decorations: An Overview

From canvas to premium print

An expressive portrait, a detailed landscape photograph, or an especially successful snapshot from your most recent holiday are all worthy of a place on your wall. If your favourite photo is to become an eye-catching feature, then it needs a proper backing material and sometimes a frame as well. We’ll show you some fantastic ways to bring your photos into the limelight.

Photo Posters: Simple and Straightforward

Do you have a particularly fine snapshot of yourself and your best friend, or a holiday photo that you would like to look at every day? These images in poster form could be a very decorative addition to your wall. You can also design your own collage, or use a template to make one, and then have your photograph printed as a poster. The great thing about posters is that they are comparatively inexpensive and they are quick and easy to swap over whenever you have a new favourite theme. Also, posters can be fixed to your wall very simply and quickly using poster strips. If you want to make your snapshot even more special, you could always choose an attractive frame to match.

Photo Canvases: Attractive and Artistic

A photo that’s printed on canvas looks great with its luminous colours, well-balanced contrasts and outstandingly sharp focus. The canvas makes the theme stand out more, as if you could reach out and touch it. This is how a simple picture becomes a valuable work of art. The great thing about canvas is that it is very resistant to fading, and it is not reflective – you can hang your picture on any wall, without having to worry about where the light is coming from.

Your photo on canvas will blend in with any style of décor, and it is very affordable, even in a larger size

As far as the design is concerned, you have various options to choose from. If you are looking for a classical art canvas, you should choose a folded edge. We stretch all our canvases on a solid wood frame and if you want to add another frame to your canvas, you can choose one of our shadow gap frames. Your canvas is so versatile that it makes a perfect foundation for displaying everything from portraits to animal pictures and landscape scenes. Your photos could also be made into a collage to form an attractive wall-hanging that will make an impact on your room.

Framed Photos with Mount: Traditional and Effective

A beautiful picture frame improves your favourite photo in an instant and draws attention to the image. We will prepare a digital photo print of your image in the size that you have selected. The result will bring joy to all who appreciate its extremely sharp resolution and luminous colours. You can choose a suitable frame to go with the image, when you make your order for the print. We offer you a wide range of colours and styles to choose from. You might like Silver, Black or White, or perhaps a frame in wood-look style such as Walnut or Rosewood: whatever your preference, you will find something in our range. We will frame your photo by hand and put it behind a sheet of acrylic glass, to add value to the final picture.

Everything is done by hand – we will mount and frame your photo with great care

A mount surrounding your photo draws the eye towards the picture inside and sets it off in an attractive way. We use high-quality, museum-standard cardboard with angled cut because this gives an extra appearance of depth. If you want to frame a super architectural image, or a valuable work of art, the mount will give the image a highly professional look.

Photos behind Acrylic Glass: Glossy and Elegant

If you would like to adorn your wall with a large-format landscape photograph, an underwater image, a night-time shot or even a black and white photograph, we recommend putting your photograph behind acrylic glass. Placing it behind acrylic glass will enhance the intensity of the colours and the impression of depth in your picture, for example making water look especially realistic. We work with a 12-colour printing process to produce subtle colour shading and optimal resolution.

The next step is to cover the digital print very carefully with the acrylic glass and then your picture is ready for delivery to your home. You will be very happy with the borderless design which gives your picture more breadth, while an unusual impression of depth is provided by the acrylic glass surface. If you choose a large-format picture with an acrylic layer, you should also mount it on a Forex or Alu-Dibond backing sheet. This makes your picture stronger and ensures that the layer of acrylic glass stays flat, despite the large size. There is nothing more elegant than acrylic glass with Alu-Dibond.

Photos on Alu-Dibond: Very Glossy and Wonderfully Detailed

Alu-Dibond is made of two very thin aluminium plates and a strong plastic core – this makes it both light and strong. First, we print your photo using our professional, laboratory-standard 12-colour printing process, and then layer it onto the Alu-Dibond plate.

Your picture is protected from dirt, sunlight and air humidity by a UV film. The film offers protection but it also has an aesthetic effect: it makes your picture sharper, with an elegant sheen. The two aluminium plates ensure that your picture has an attractive, silvery gleam along the precisely cut edges and this makes your photo a very impressive, decorative item.

Photos on Premium Forex®: Feather-light and Matt

If you opt for a print on Premium Forex®, it will have a matt appearance, which is especially appropriate for landscapes and panorama photographs, because the extremely sharp resolution pulls details into the foreground and makes the image look very realistic indeed. We layer your photo onto a 5mm strong, rigid foam plate and then add a protective matt laminate on top.

Forex prints are incredibly light and the matt photo paper guarantees laboratory-standard photo production

The biggest advantage of a print on Premium Forex® is that it is very light, even in the larger formats. Its low weight means that you can hang your picture up anywhere, even on non-loadbearing or tiled walls or in outdoors areas. Photo on Forex® can be attached to the wall with stick-on picture hooks or a simple nail. Note: choose a quality frame as well, and your slim Forex® picture will turn into a valuable premium product!
