Acrylic, also known as Perspex®, is known as a versatile and popular material to use for picture frames.

Advantages of an acrylic photo frame

An acrylic photo frame offers numerous advantages. First of all, acrylic has a clear and transparent look, which makes your photos, or works of art stand out perfectly. Moreover, acrylic is lightweight and durable, which means your frame will last a long time.

✓ Clarity and transparency

One of the main features of acrylic picture frames is their crystal clear appearance. This is because the acrylic glass in these frames is crystal clear and transparent, allowing you to see photos or artworks without any visual disturbance.

✓ Lightweight and durable

Acrylic is a lightweight material, which means acrylic picture frames are easy to handle and hang. Despite their light weight, they are also remarkably durable and resistant to tearing, breaking or cracking, ensuring a long lasting presentation of your pictures.

✓ UV resistant

Acrylic picture frames are uv resistant. This ensures that you can always view your pictures through a crystal clear frame without worrying about any yellowing of the picture frame.

✓ Easy to maintain

Maintaining perspex picture frames is also very easy. You can clean them with a soft cloth and an anti-static cleaner to remove dust and fingerprints. Anti-static cleaners ensure that the plastic does not attract dust.

Compared to traditional glass, acrylic picture frames are safer because they do not shatter into sharp shards if the picture frame accidentally falls or breaks.
