What Do Our Diasec Customers Say?

When I opened up the package containing my first Diasec acrylic print from Reed Art & Imaging, I just thought it was incredible! The packaging and presentation was the best I’ve ever seen! Mind-boggling! The art looks just like the original. It is a beautiful reproduction. I’m thoroughly happy with the results and excited to see more of my images in Diasec acrylic. I encourage my collectors to covet these prints.

I was genuinely amazed when I saw the print – I’ve never seen anything like it before! I thought it only right to let you know how happy I am with it. I’m absolutely thrilled with it, and by it! The reproduction, quality and finish are all brilliant and the result is spectacular! I’d never seen anything with a Diasec acrylic finish before and was completely blown away by the effect it has. Thank you so much for arranging to produce it for me. I’m very grateful. Kind Regards, Susie

“We received the print today and it looks fantastic! In all honesty, this Diasec acrylic face-mount from Reed is the most spectacular use of materials and care I have ever received in over 10 years. Not one flaw, very well packaged, and I’ve never seen a thin clear protective film placed over the surface. Amazing!”

I can’t begin to tell you how pleased I am with the product and the service I received from Reed Art & Imaging. I was brand new to the Diasec product they offer and their staff clearly explained the process, were in constant communication with me throughout, and answered all the questions I had for them. When the Diasec acrylic face-mount print arrived, I was blown away by the clarity of detail and the depth that the face-mount created. Everything down to the packaging was done in the most professional way possible. After receiving my first Diasec print, I was immediately sold on it being the premiere method of reproducing my art. Many, many thanks to the folks at Reed Art & Imaging!!

It's an interesting question: If they aren't confident in their product, why are you?

There is a reason non-Diasec vendors won’t guarantee their product beyond a few years.

Cheap sticky films are used by nearly every face-mount producer in North America to adhere prints to acrylic.  The problem with those films is that they fail.  It could be tomorrow, next week, or next year.  Expansion/contraction of the acrylic due to temp and humidity changes result in a separation between the adhesive and the acrylic – forever destroying that artwork with huge bubbles, tunnels, peeling edges and worse. 

When your buyer’s piece fails, it’s you who gets the call. You will likely be asked to replace the work resulting in expensive remakes, crates, and shipping. Or if you decline, your reputation and brand are all at risk.  Will that buyer be confident to purchase with you again?  If they have several of your pieces, will they lose piece of mind?

Diasec gel remains flexible and fully adhered after curing and simply will not separate from the acrylic. Facemounts have been around for over 50 years and genuine Diasec is the only technology proven to never fail. Period. 

Informing your prospective buyers why you have chosen Diasec can give them peace of mind and improve your position against your competition.

Diasec is a museum approved method of print preservation and presentation.

A fine art print is sandwiched behind an acrylic glazing and another archival substrate. The adhesive used in a real Diasec is a silicon adhesive combined with a proprietary product that ensures a complete and permanent bond. Unlike sticky film based acrylic face mounts that look similar, Diasec is engineered to never separate, peel, or fail. 

Diasec Acrylic Print Mounting provides the extra smooth and extra pop visual benefits you will see. This is the premier presentation system for bringing detail, color and tonal range to life in a way that traditional photo framing cannot. For this presentation style we print on Select Giclee Pigment Papers and Fuji Flex polyester photographic material for amazing color and longevity (black and white images also look fantastic on these materials).
Face Mounted on lens-grade optically clear 1/8″ or 1/4″ acrylic, the edges are sanded to a smooth satin finish or hand polished for a crystal clear look (Polishing not available with giclée papers). The face mount to acrylic plex comes backer-less, or with your choice of backer materials and hanging hardware: an optional metal french cleat style hanging system or stand-offs. Square corners are standard, rounded corners are available.

The contemporary look of this photo mounting presentation method is ideal for artwork and images that really pop. An acrylic face mount print will look great against most any wall type.

  • Diasec is permanent, unlike sticky film mounting that can fail
  • Available with standard or anti-reflective TruLife Acrylic
  • Chromogenic or Pigment prints for greater display longevity
  • Polished or Satin Edge options
  • Comes ready to hang and ships with protective film.
Diasec is an ideal print preservation and presentation system.
