Advantages of our photos on plexiglass compared to glass

The many advantages of photos on plexiglass are perhaps points that you will never expect from the material, strangely enough. We are happy to explain it to you! Would you prefer a canvas painting or art poster? Then check out our canvas of poster pages.

✓ 1. Strong: as strong as a bear

An A-quality plexiglass is sometimes possible 30x stronger are like normal glass! Plexiglass owes its flexibility to the plastic it is made of. This will make it less likely to break and it will be easier to work with. If we have photos printed on plexiglass at Walljar, it is almost impossible to break! 

This also makes the photo on the glass plate suitable for hanging outside. It can be hit by, for example, a gust of wind or children playing football in the backyard.

✓ 2. Weight: as light as a feather

Photos on plexiglass are much lighter than glass, no less than 2x as light! This is because it is made of plastic. Glass is made by melting sand, soda and lime. This is much heavier than the plastic from which plexiglass is made. So you don't have to be a powerhouse to hang one of our plexiglass paintings.

✓ 3. Sustainability: green, green and more green

Walljar uses the plexiglass by printing a photo on the glass plate, creating a beautiful shiny effect arises. An important aspect of our photos on acrylic glass is that it is durable is: it lasts a long time and it is produced in an environmentally friendly way.

Plexiglass has one insulating effect and is moisture resistant, so that the material can last a very long time, even when you hang it outside! This is because the material is strong and not weathered due to the UV protective layer. Plexiglass will also not discolour, as long as you maintain it properly.

✓ 4. Safety: safe for the little ones 

Because Plexiglass is so strong, it can hardly break or tear. Should this happen in one way or another, there is still very little to worry about. The plastic does not break into thousands of pieces as with normal glass. In this way it is a lot safer for children, for example, and it gives almost no mess. If it is a plexiglass plate that you want to hang at home, this plastic is ideal because it cannot just break! 

✓ 5. Price: an affordable product

When we look at the price of photos on plexiglass, we see that this is another advantage compared to normal glass. It's a lot cheaper! For example, a plexiglass plate with a thickness of 3 mm, per m2 50  worth euro. For a glass plate you can easily lose 65 to 85 euros for the same dimensions! You do not need to be in possession of a bulky wallet to be able to purchase a photo on plexiglass.
