Prints for pleasure – One Vision Acrylic Box Frames
Posted on May 14, 2019
For PN editor, Will Cheung’s image of the northern lights, taken in the Lofoten Islands, he opted for One Vision’s Acrylic Box Frame service.
“For my white wall, I opted for the black finish, so it would be sympathetic to the image, yet would stand out and be a focal point in the living room,” he says.
Uploading images to One Vision is a simple process – you just need to register on the website. Then it is a drag-and-drop process. JPEGs and TIFFs are fine and file sizes up to 200MB are accepted.
“Seven working days after I uploaded my file, a big box arrived containing a sealed, framed print, enclosed in bubble wrap. There was no risk of corner damage in transit here,” explains Will.
“I knew the image would be a challenge. It was a night shot, so I wanted deep shadows but without blocking up, while the highlights had to be delicate and saturated.
“I wasn’t disappointed. The print was just like how it appeared on my monitor. It was richly saturated, had great depth and a smooth tonal gradation.
“The glossy crystal clear acrylic finish let the image show through clearly and the deep 53mm frame, with the image located at the front, gave a three-dimensional effect.
“I wanted a centrepiece and I got it, with a beautifully presented print that takes me straight back to the experience of seeing the northern lights. I’m very happy.”
