SAAL DIGITAL – ACRYLIC PRINT REVIEW

Over the past couple of years I’ve looked to increase my product offerings, and have searched for an acrylic print supplier that I could rely on, admittedly I’ve not searched that hard, but have been hugely underwhelmed with the companies that I have trialed. The products have never blown me away, be that poor build quality, inconsistent colours or a general lack of ‘pop’ in the finished piece. So when I recently stumbled across glowing review of Saal Digital’s wall decor from the talented astro/nightscape photographer, Ollie Taylor, I decided to trial one of their Arcylic Glass panels. They duly accepted my trial application on the proviso I wrote an honest review of the product and service, so here we are. 

Over the past couple of years I’ve looked to increase my product offerings, and have searched for an acrylic print supplier that I could rely on, admittedly I’ve not searched that hard, but have been hugely underwhelmed with the companies that I have trialed. The products have never blown me away, be that poor build quality, inconsistent colours or a general lack of ‘pop’ in the finished piece. So when I recently stumbled across glowing review of Saal Digital’s wall decor from the talented astro/nightscape photographer, Ollie Talyor, I decided to trial one of their Arcylic Glass panels. They duly accepted my trial application on the proviso I wrote an honest review of the product and service, so here we are. 

Saal Digital are a German based print company, offering an extensive product range from greeting cards to photo albums, wall art and everything in between. Although there were a number of wall decor options available, I plumped for the acrylic panel and started the order process by downloading their Saal Design Software app. The app is well design and easy to use and the upload and image customisations took no more than five minutes. 

Once ordered, I excitedly checked the product delivery status at least three times a day until it arrived and although I expected it to be of a high standard, it far exceeded that delivering an almost 3D quality to the print. The product is sturdy in construction, the 5mm (also available in 10mm) thick acrylic feels strong but also light, a huge bonus for hanging large pieces. The colours are vivid and true whilst the details are pin sharp delivering a vibrant and eye catching product in a modern styling. 

Delivery times were also impressive, especially considering its transportation from Germany and progress is easily checked via the delivery tracking facility; the order was back with me in a week, and actual production had taken just over a day. The panel was well packed, maybe a little too well as it took nearly five minutes to unravel the endless loops of cellophane wrap, but with sturdy flat cardboard packaging and an additional protective film covering the front surface it arrived in pristine condition. I’d be confident in having Saal Digital deliver directly to the client.

On the topic on customer service, I have very little to feedback which is a positive. My initial contact emails were responded to promptly and courteously but from the point of image upload onwards, I have had no need to contact Saal Digital. The product was great and they provide a tracking service for delivery. If and when I do have a need to contact them for future orders, I’ll update this review with relevant feedback. 

In summary, I suppose the big question is, ‘would I use Saal Digital again?’  The answer is an overwhelming yes!  The process, from image upload to delivery, was seamless with the finished product of an extremely high quality and far superior to that I have previously used. In fact, I‘m so impressed with the product quality that I am delighted to announce all images featured on my website will be available in acrylic print format by the end of April. All acrylic prints being produced by Saal Digital.
