Acetate Prints

Printed acetate, also known as clear film, is often used to make negatives for the screen printing process where a clear material with a black image is required.    However we are often amazed at the different uses for printed acetate particularly for artistic work but also in wedding stationery and even for theatre back drops and magicians props.

We print acetate in black & clear (please note that white prints as clear) or colour from rolls which are either 609mm (24”),  914mm (36”) or 1118mm (44") wide allowing us to print A4 through to A0 page sizes – and can print to any length.

Acetates are often used on Light Boxes.  We stock acetate specifically for Light Boxes which is white translucent coated acetate.

When printing by laser we start with a very clear material with the toner fused to the acetate material whilst with inkjet the acetate first has a coating to accept and bond the ink which means the material is not quite as clear.  We do also have a totally clear acetate for inkjet but requires at least 24 hours curing time before despatch and is 20% more expensive that the prices quoted below.

The full range is printed by laser in black and white.  For colour we are able to print A4 & A3 by laser and the larger sizes by inkjet.

Do remember although we mention specific page sizes like A3 & A0 we also print non-standard sizes and can print to any length.  It is not uncommon for us to print acetate three metres long.

When ordering please give us a much information as possible so we not only know size, black & white or colour but ideally the purpose of the print so we understand what need to achieve.
