I can tell you first hand that this one has been a long time coming. For several years now we have been considering adding the ability to print your photos to metal (aluminum, more specifically). We can finally say it’s here!
Printing to metal, on your end, works just about like any other printing does. You bring us your photo or other artwork and we take it from there. The differences begin to emerge when you see the finished piece.
Metal printing has its own look unlike other printing mediums. The thin but sturdy metal panel is fitted with a hanger on the back that allows the metal print to hang as a finished piece with nothing but the metal itself showing. The metal panel has the appearance of slightly floating off the wall. It’s quite a clean, eye-catching look that requires no further framing or treatment.
On top of that the metal produces a very vibrant print that stands out among other print mediums. People can immediately tell that there something different about the metal print. Whether black and white or color images are printed on it you still end up with a really impactful finished product.
Another great thing about photo prints on metal is that they are very sturdy. When properly cared for they will last a very long time, longer than most of us will be around, and given the nature of the printing process you can actually spray these metal prints with simple window cleaner and wipe off your fingerprints and dust and it won’t harm the print.
And, at least for the time being, it’s less expensive than getting prints on canvas.
