Plexiglass Prints of Polaroid Photos

Polaroid instant photographs are fun to make and look at, but displaying them (or selling them) in a nice and formal way can be difficult. Grant Hamilton came up with a fantastic way of selling his Polaroid prints — he makes high resolution scans of the photographs, prints them on Fuji Crystal Archive Polyester, and then encapsulates the print in Plexiglas. The resulting 1:1 scale shiny photo-clones are thick enough to stand on their own, and are a great way to show off your best Polaroid photos.

Does anyone know of a company that can create these Plexiglass Polaroid prints for you? If not, someone needs to make one pronto!

    Use some UV protective glass for better archival quality.
    Also, with a few garage tools and some acrylic solvent you could do it yourself.

    Cut 2 pieces to size slightly larger than the photo, place your photo in between, apply solvent to the edges, route the edges for a smooth finish, use a map gas torch to finish the edges for a shine.
