Most frequent questions and answers

You can upload images from your photo library or JPGs, PNGs, or PDFs. No transparent PNGs.

For best results, upload original, high-resolution photo files. If you are creating an image in other software, ensure the final image is 300 dpi.

Make sure the file is RGB, sRGBAdobe RGB(or any type of RGB) color profile–this is the default for most cameras. Do not use CMYK profiled images.

Our site will warn you if your file is too small to print clearly, so the best way to check whether your photo will print clearly is to upload it to our website! We use a star rating with 1 star as poor quality, 2 stars as medium quality, and 3 starts as best quality.

We print on demand, so turnaround times will vary depending on volume of current orders. Most print turnaround times will be within a week (excluding shipping time). If we expect a delay we will contact you. If you need your order faster, email us at [email protected] or call us at (310) 403-2849 to see if we can accommodate you.

If your print is damaged in shipping, please take photos of the packaging and the print itself and email it to us so we can replace your print and resolve any issues.
We use UV-cured inks that are printed directly onto the back side of the acrylic, so you are looking through the surface of the acrylic at the printed image.
 
Our Plexi Prints are made from 100% recycled material. The plexiglass used is clear, allowing images to shine through.  Damaged plexiglass/acrylic could crack, but it doesn’t shatter like glass if dropped, so it is a safer choice.
