    I don't know the process exactly, but my lab does it.

    Check your local Pro labs and see if they offer it as well.

    Yeah, I think they do it, but... I not exactly know HOW they do it :(
    This is my project for this year, I know for sure will be expensive wherever I need to buy ;)

    PD: I google it, and seems that can be just a Acrylic printer??

    It's just a print that is laminated onto a piece of acrylic, it's not actually printed on acrylic.

    I assume you're talking about face mounting prints behind acrylic / plexiglass? If you are, this is our specialty. You can find out more info at our site BumbleJax - Wall Art From Your Digital Photos. Feel free to ping me if you have any questions about the process.

    Kodak makes a product that is a translucent plastic base with a photographic emulsion on it. They call it Kodak Enduratrans.

    Like a normal C-print a digital image is projected onto the photographic emulsion and the run through the appropriate chemistry to develope the print.

    As Mike said, the print is then laminated onto a sheet of acrylic.

    To do the printing yourself you could get good used equipment like a Durst Lambda 130, and it shouldn't cost you more than $125,000 USD or so, plus shipping and installation.

    Spam post deleted.

    Photographs can be printed directly on acrylic, metal, wood, etc - if UV-cured inks are used.
