Perspex Prints

A modern technique, the face of a Perspex print adheres a C-Print directly to a piece of acrylic (also known as plexiglass, Perspex or Lucite) with a clear, pH neutral adhesive. The verso is mounted to an aluminum composite backed with a wood or metal cleat, ready to be hung. The mounted C-type prints are well protected and are a modern update to framing, giving Perspex mounted prints the illusion of floating off the wall without the added border of a traditional frame.  Unlike others who offer an acrylic mounted option by printing the image directly onto the aluminum surface, our process starts with a printed C-Print to ensure a vibrancy and fidelity to the colors of the original work.

With Slim Aarons photography, we've found the richness of his colors really stand out in a C-print over an inkjet print and that Perspex framing maintains that vibrancy where a traditional frame may dull it. 

About Slim Aarons

Slim Aarons worked for society publications, taking pictures of the rich and famous before and after serving as a photographer for the US military magazine Yank during World War II. His work has been included in the publications Town and Country,Holiday, Venture and LIFE.

Aarons was known for his positive portrayals of the people he photographed and was invited to high-society gatherings for exactly this reason. His subject matter covered American and European society as well as nobility and both minor and major stars of the day.
