FAQ on Metal Prints

Metal prints, also known as metallic prints, are modern, high definition art pieces made of a lightweight metal panel (usually aluminum), printed with any image of your choosing. Metal prints represent a new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into the specially coated aluminum sheets. Your images will take on a enchanting luminescence. You've never seen a more brilliant and impressive print! Colours are vibrant and the luminescence is breathtaking.
Aluminium prints is another name for metal prints. The reason being is that aluminium is used to produce the metal prints. Our aluminium prints are created in collaboration with the world’s leading manufacturer of high-definition 1.5mm sublimatable photo panels, ChromaLuxe. In a thermal sublimation printing process involving heat and high-pressure, the image is embedded into the coating. Consequently, the image is not on but rather in the aluminum.
Metal prints are made by first reverse-printing an image on a sublimation “transfer paper” with dye sublimation inks. The transfer paper is then precisely registered on a rigid ChromaLuxe coated aluminum panel, which is then put into a specially-designed heat press, under pressure, at a temperature of approximately 350°F (178°C) for four to six minutes. During this period, the sublimation dyes printed on the transfer paper diffuse into the coating on the surface of the metal panel.
In a scientific test, metal prints created by the dye-sublimation process were found to retain color balance as much as 4 times longer than archival photographic paper. We also offer a 5 year guarantee for our metal prints.
Not for a long time. Metal print fade tests have been carried out by Chromaluxe and it will take about 65 years before any noticeable fading and/or changes in colour balance to occur at a high level of light. We do not recommend hanging these pieces in direct sunlight though, as with any other photo.
Yes they are. The ultra-hard scratch-resistant surface is waterproof/weatherproof.
Yes you can frame a square metal photo print. We offer white or black ultra-matte frames to allow your glistening metal picture to truly stand out. Your metal photo print will float seamlessly within the wooden frame with no glass to hide your photograph and a 5mm gap between the metal and the wood.
Our metal prints are pre-fitted with a rear mounted subframe ready to hang in pride of place in your home, office, or gallery. Unframed metal photo prints sit approximately 15mm from the wall surface; resulting in an ultra-modern and contemporary floating effect for extra impact. Framed metal prints sit flat against your wall.
You can easily clean fingerprint marks and other stains from the surface because the dyes are underneath the surface coating. Clean a metal print by gently wiping it using only a soft dry cloth. Do not use other cleaning products. A cloth dampened with water may be used on occasion, but only when necessary.
Yes they can. There are a number of different materials that are used in making art for hanging outdoors including wood, plastic and glass, but the most commonly used material in weatherproof art is metal.
