The backer: Going the extra step we back our pearled metallic print with another sheet of black acrylic or dibond (ACM-Aluminum composite material). they removee any environmental issues from the paper backing while adding rigidity . The standoff frame: For the CONTEMPORARY look all of our acrylics are polished to a mirror finish with a 2000 grit abrasive using a 5 step process.
