Hi, theotheo. Sounds like perhaps you're a photographer who face mounts to acrylic.
I've heard of Optium, but don't know what Trulife is. Is it another kind of acrylic?
Also, who are the people in Chicago?
No, it won't work. We use TruLife and standard acrylic. The procedure is the same for both.
We do facemounts all day long and we need the print to be on smooth surface unlike the papers you mentioned.
I hate to say it but the people in NY are wrong.
