Acrylic is pretty indestructible (that’s not a guarantee; just our personal experience). With regular usage, acrylic will not shatter, crack, or break. The glossy surface may scratch over time if it is not cleaned with the proper materials. The archival print is protected by the facing acrylic. Though both the acrylic and the print are UV resistant and waterproof, your image will stay vibrant and intact longer if kept away from direct exposure to the elements. In short, it should last you a good long while. Theoretically, because it’s printed in UV-cured archival ink, it could last up to 75 years, but none of us have been printing long enough to personally vouch for that.
