MetalPrints™ – Aluminum Photos

MetalPrints™ represent a new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. The high gloss coating takes on an almost magical luminescence. Because the image is infused into the surface and not on it, the archival qualities of this unique process are unparalleled. You’ve never seen a more brilliant impressive print before! Colors are vibrant and the luminescence is breathtaking. Detail and resolution are unsurpassed. To compliment this unique printing method there are also a variety of ultra-modern ways to hang and display your MetalPrints.

  • Brilliant luminescent images
  • Durable archival prints without glass
  • Ultra-Hard scratch-resistant surface
  • Waterproof/weatherproof
  • Can be cleaned easily with any commercial glass cleaner
  • Glossy Surface and optional Float Hangers (more options coming soon!)
  • Choose from Single MetalPrints or Float MetalPrints
  • Float means we mount a smaller size MetalPrint on top of a larger size one with a spacer in between for a unique display with added depth. The background print can be an image file, or select a solid color or gradient.

How archival are MetalPrints™?

Images printed with the MetalPrints process will last for generations when displayed indoors and out of direct sunlight. Like any fine art print, MetalPrints should not be exposed to direct sunlight or high outdoor temperatures. Images have an archival value rivaling the best gicleé or photographic processes. Plus, MetalPrints have an additional benefit over these other processes in that they are waterproof and have an ultra-hard scratch resistant coating. The archival value of a print should be judged not only by its resistance to degradation by U.V. light and ozone exposure, but also to moisture and surface damage. When these factors are brought into the equation, MetalPrints would be, without a doubt, the best way to preserve an image.
