What are acrylic photo blocks?

Acrylic photo block frames are a contemporary and stylish way to display your favourite memories. Unlike traditional photo frames, these transparent floating frames are made from clear acrylic material, giving them a sleek and ultramodern look. The beauty of acrylic floating frames lies in their simplicity and versatility. They have a minimalist design that allows the focus to be entirely on the photograph, creating a stunning visual impact.

One of the unique features of Profile Newtown acrylic photo block frames is their ability to create a three-dimensional effect. The transparent material gives the illusion that the photograph is floating in mid-air, adding depth and dimension to your display. This innovative design element can be particularly effective when showcasing landscape or portrait photographs, as it accentuates the details and adds an artistic touch.

In addition to their aesthetic appeal, the clear nature of these frames also means that they complement any decor style seamlessly, allowing you to display your cherished moments in any room of your home with confidence.

Floating acrylic frames also suit all sorts of home colour schemes, so if you’re someone who likes to switch your décor every season, they’ll match no matter how you decorate.

How do acrylic photo blocks work?

Acrylic photo blocks may look like mere decorative pieces, but they possess a hidden secret: the power to breathe life into your cherished memories. These unique photo displays work by encapsulating an image between two clear acrylic panels, resulting in a stunning three-dimensional effect that adds depth and vibrancy to any picture.

Another feature of Newtown acrylic photo block frames is their crystal-clear transparency. Acrylic has a high level of clarity, allowing for optimal visibility and showcasing your photos in the best possible light. This transparency also adds depth to your images, making them appear more vibrant and captivating.

Additionally, acrylic has excellent light transmission properties, which means it won't obstruct or distort the colours in your photographs. The crystal-clear material acts as a prism, catching and refracting light in captivating ways, creating an eye-catching display that is sure to captivate anyone who sees it.

Step-by-step guide on inserting photos

Our Newtown Acrylic Photo Display Frames from Profile are simple and easy to use. Follow these step-by-step instructions to achieve a stunning display piece that showcases your favourite memories.

These are made with two blocks of acrylic which are held together magnetically and also using invisible tape. A bit like an acrylic 'sandwich'.

You simply separate these blocks, to insert your photo or picture inside, and then close the sandwich. The embedded magnets will automatically realign the assembly so it will all look like one piece again.

Tips for displaying clear photo blocks

When it comes to displaying your favorite photos, acrylic photo block frames are a modern and stylish choice. To make the most of these frames, consider some tips for displaying them in a way that truly showcases your images.

1. Location

Firstly, think about the location where you plan to display your acrylic photo blocks. Consider spaces with plenty of natural light or areas where the blocks can capture the light and become focal points. Additionally, don't be afraid to mix and match different sizes and shapes of photo blocks for an eclectic look.

2. Orientation and layering

Secondly, try experimenting with various orientations when placing your photos in the block. Acrylic photo block frames can also be displayed on shelves or tabletops, in either portrait or landscape orientation.

While horizontal or vertical layouts are traditional choices, think outside the box by trying layered or overlapping arrangements, using a set of acrylic photo blocks. This allows you to create unique and dynamic displays that catch the eye.

Newtown acrylic photo display frames look great when grouped together, as their simple style means they coordinate beautifully. Make a display with one large photo in the middle and some smaller pictures surrounding it.

What sets acrylic photo blocks apart from traditional photo frames?

Besides their modern aesthetic appeal, these versatile blocks offer a range of benefits for displaying your treasured photographs. Due to their transparent nature, they allow light to enter from all angles - making them remarkably vibrant even in dimly lit spaces.

Additionally, the absence of a frame allows the image within the block to stand out on its own without distractions. Acrylic photo blocks seamlessly blend into any decor style while adding an element of elegance and sophistication.
