Product Focus – Acrylic Sl-ice
In addition to our stretched canvas prints, we also offer our Acrylic Sl-ice acrylic frame. What’s new, is that we now offer our acrylic frame in custom sizes with great new prices.
Acrylic Sl-ice acrylic frame is a very stylish way to display your photos, with canvas or paper inserts. The beauty of our acrylic framing system is that you can change the photo as often as your like.
The acrylic frame is easily assembled in minutes, providing a “one stop shop” for printing and framing canvas images.
One of the advantages of the Acrylic Frame is that you only need to buy the frame once and you can change the image as often as you like for a fraction of the price. We will provide you with your loose canvas print, laminated for protection and cut to size
Our acrylic framing system comprises of a canvas or paper print sandwiched between 2 sheets of acrylic with a stylish bolt standoff (as pictured below)

Canvas Tip – Gloss Laminate
Here at ROC Gallery & Print Studio we offer 3 choices of laminates for your canvas print.
A laminate is applied to every canvas print after printing. The laminate is similar to a varnish and is applied with a spray, as apposed to a roller. This ensures a nice even coverage without any roller markings. Laminating your canvas is important as it adheres the ink to the canvas and protects your print from UV and abrasions.
Gloss: There are three choices of laminate. The gloss laminate is slightly thicker and leaves your print with a nice glossy finish. The gloss laminate looks great with sharp blacks and vivid colours. One thing to watch out for, though, is where you are hanging your new gloss canvas print. The glossy laminate will reflect the light creating glare and you will not be able to see your new print at different light stages of the day.
Photography Tip – Your Camera Settings
Your digital camera has many settings. It is important that you know what settings your camera is on before you start taking photos. One of these settings relates to the size and resolution of your photo and file. It is important to remember that you never know what you may want to do with a photo in the future. Setting your camera to the lowest file size possible will allow for more photos to be taken on your camera card, but each photo will be a low resolution, very small file size and will limit your choices as to what you can do with the photo later.
We recommend always having your camera set to the highest setting and remember to transfer photos from your card to your computer on a regular basis. If you’re on holidays and can’t get to your computer, consider buying a new camera card – they are cheaper every day and will mean that you are not limited with your photos when you return home.
