These fantastic, sublimation flexible acrylic sheets print beautifully. They make not just tremendous gifts but are also practical for use in the home.
These crystal clear acrylic photo panels measure 267mm x 192mm and are approx 3mm thick. Print on the reverse (do not mirror image the print) so they show through the acrylic panel giving a 3D image effect.
As these products are made from acrylic sheets they can be curved to shape when they are warm. Use the special jig kit that is available separately. The Jig enables the rectangular flat printed item to be shaped into a bowl after printing. When the acrylic panel has been printed and is still warm it is bendable. Lay the sheet on the shaping jig and using the supplied ‘former’ you press on top of the printed acrylic into the jig. Now the bowl shape is formed from the rectangular piece of acrylic. Leaving the item in the jig for around 1 minute will allow it to cool to room temperature thus keeping the shape.
The Jig supplied enables you to form bespoke shapes and edges to the acrylic. We recommend wearing gloves when shaping as the item may be hot.
