Fill your glass
When ordering your acrylic print, take note of all the options, and make the most of what’s on offer
01 Paper trail
Some companies offer glossy, metallic and other paper choices for a range of different effects.
02 Correctional facility
Most labs offer the option of automatic or ‘by hand’ photo corrections to make finished prints look their best.
It’s tempting to go for extra-large prints as they look spectacular, but they can get very pricey. For example, Loxley Colour offers a huge 60x40-inch acrylic print, but it costs £420.
04 Aspect ratio
Ensure that you pick the right aspect ratio (where available) to match your image. Typically, the native aspect ratio is 3x2 for Nikon D-SLRs and 4x3 for compact cameras.
05 Shipping costs
All the prices shown in our reviews are for a 24x16-inch acrylic print, including VAT and standard UK delivery. Shipping costs to the USA and other parts of the world may be considerably more.
