Plexiglass vs. Lamanart
PLEXIGLASS is a lightweight plastic-like glass. It will not shatter or break like glass and is more expensive than glass. You can only use a Plexiglass Cleaner or a soft, damp cloth so it doesn't scratch. It is very lightweight. A good choice for schools. If you already have framed motivational art work with glass or plexiglass, you may want to continue the same 'look' and order plexiglass. Plexiglass Disadvantages: It can scratch and will yellow over time. Keeping plexiglass out of direct sunlight will help keep your picture from fading or yellowing. To clean, you must use water or a Plexiglass Cleaner.
LAMANART is not Glazing. It is a special process done to the poster that gives it a canvas type texture, making it truly look like an original photograph or original painting (similar to a canvas transfer or canvexing). It is also UV Ray protected and NON-GLARE. So no matter the type of lighting in the room, you will always see the picture, not a reflection of yourself.. Lamanarting your poster or lithograph protects it from ultra-violet rays, preventing it from yellowing, fading or becomming discolored, unlike Plexiglass. You can actually dust the poster with a damp cloth, no scratches, no tearing and it is lightweight. Lamanart Disadvantages: Because there is no glass covering, kids could poke their finger into the picture and dent it. If you are unsure or not aware of what a canvas tranfer or canvexing looks like, we advise that you find out. We like and prefer "Lamanart" vs. "Plexiglass".
