My Metal Prints are printed on ChromaLuxe® Aluminum using the Dye Sublimation process.
ChromaLuxe® is the industry leader for photo quality aluminum. Click on the link for more information.
Dye sublimation is the process of printing an image onto dye sublimation transfer paper using dye-based inks. The ink is infused into specially coated aluminum plates with high heat and pressure. The result is a print with stunning vibrant colors and amazing depth.
Here is a video of me talking about the different qualities of metal prints and paper prints vs metal prints.
All Metal prints come ready to hang. Hanging options depend on the size of the print.
Float Mount Hangers sit 2" inside the edge of the print and are 1" or 1 1/4" off the wall depending on the size of the print. Plastic coated wire is used to hang the picture. Corners are slightly rounded.
Flush Mount Hangers support the print to the edges of the photo and are 1" or 1 1/4" off the wall depending on the size of the print. Plastic coated wire is used to hang the picture. Corners are squared.
Wall Buddie Hangers attach to the wall using ridgy metal corners and supplied wall hooks. Panorama prints are best using this option. Prints sit 1" or 1 1/4" off the wall depending on the size of the print. Available as a Float Mount or Flush Mount.
Custom Frames All my custom frames are from top quality manufacturers. A black satin 2 1/4" wood frame is currently available as an option. Email me if you would like information on other custom frame options.
Cleaning ChromaLuxe® metal prints can be cleaned with a lint free cloth and any all-purpose household cleaner. The cleaner can be sprayed directly on the surface of the print and then wiped with a lint free cloth as needed.
Prints will vary from pictures on electric displays. Pictures on electric displays are backlit and every display has a slight variation in brightness, color hue and saturation. Electronic displays project light so pictures on electronic displays look brighter. Blue Light Blocking glass greatly affect colors because they block the blue light rays from electronic displays, this creates a yellow hue on all colors. Prints reflect light so they look a little darker. The printer used, media type and finish also effect the brightness, color hue and saturation. Steps are made to produce the best quality print possible, but I can not guarantee the printed picture will look exactly like the picture on your electric screen.
Coating applied to aluminum prints occasionally have small imperfections such as craters or bumps. The Printer's cannot remake a print due to these imperfections unless they are located in a very prominent part of the image. These imperfections are usually unnoticeable unless viewed really close in bright light. I inspect prints before I send them to the customer, but some imperfections maybe missed or deemed acceptable. Please contact me by email if you feel you have an imperfection that we missed. Aluminum prints are weatherproof and moisture proof, but they will fade like a normal photograph. Please avoid direct sunlight.
