When choosing between acrylic or metal prints in your space, the first consideration should be the amount of sunlight that will hit your artwork on a daily basis. Although metal prints are durable and scratch-resistant, they are more prone to fading in direct sun than acrylic prints. Metal prints are also more highly reflective and show more glare in direct sun, so they are best featured in spaces that are away from direct sunlight for most of the time.
The rest comes down to aesthetics! Acrylics boast a more robust profile due to their 1/8" acrylic cover, so they're ideal if you're looking for something with a little more body. If you prefer a more streamlined look, a metal print is the perfect way to make a subtle statement.
