    Photograph Mounting onto Acrylic Blocks

    Hi All - Have seen recently photographs faced mounted onto the rear of Acrylic Blocks.
    Can anyone tell me how they are mounted and is this something I can do myself?
    Thanks in Advance.
    Cheers Tony

    Not sure the actual process but there are plenty of printing places who offer it now.

    You can do it yourself. Plenty of youtube videos, but after looking at them all, I decided it would be cheaper and easier to go to a place which produced acrylics "professionally"

    The resulting acrylic block was fine, but the printing job on the photo was pretty ordinary. As I desperately needed this photo for a display, in the end I soaked and scrubbed the very ordinary printed photo off the back of the acrylic block. I then took a smaller version of the photo I already had, stuck it to a piece of black matt, and used the screw offset mounts to hold the matt plus photo, on the back of the acrylic. It turned out better than I expected, but was a lot of fiddling around Moral of this story, get a reference for the printer you want to use before forking out money.
