What’s the difference between direct print and a photo when creating wall art?

There are different ways of making a wall art item. For instance we offer both a photo on dibond and a direct print on dibond. The same goes for plexiglas and forex. But what’s the difference?

In a direct print the photo is printed directly onto the materials. Your photo is built up pixel by pixel. This creates intense colours with a superb matte finish. In a photo print, the photo is chemically developed on genuine photo paper. Then the photo print is glued onto the board material. This professional photo paper features a broad colour range (sRGB) and outstanding quality. Striking colours are retained and the photos are razor-sharp, without any dot screening and with flowing transitions.
