TOOLS OF THE TRADE AND HOW WE DO IT
The manufacturing process of mirror creation is very interesting. Made from a continually processed acrylic or polycarbonate sheet, mirrors are created using a process of vacuum metalizing, in which the sheet is given a mirror finish backed by a durable protective coating. If your mirror has printing or a design printed on it, it is first run through one of our large format digital printers. The printing is actually done in reverse on the back side of the acrylic before it is vacuum metalized so the image or design is totally protected under the acrylic.
If it is a Convex or DomeVex® mirror, the acrylic sheet is first put into a furnace to heat the material so it is very soft then run through a vacuum or pressure forming machine which creates the dome. Then it is mirrored after that process.
Lastly, if your mirror has a backing it is attached then it is precisely cut out using a laser so the edges are crisp and clean before it is packaged up safely and sent to you.
