Custom print canvas on metal is a wonderful way to make your favorite images more durable, archival and beautiful. Unlike traditional photo prints on paper, these artworks are infused directly into the base aluminum sheet to create a deep and rich image that will last for years to come!
The printing process for custom metal prints involves a combination of heat, time and pressure. In this process, ink or dye pigments are absorbed into the pores of a special polymer coating that is bonded to the surface of the metal.
This coating is available in a variety of finishes, including glossy, satin and matte to achieve different looks for your artwork. A glossy finish is the most popular choice as it adds a smooth, polished look to the final product.
Transforming Your Landscape Photography with Custom Print on Metal
One of the reasons many photographers love to print their photographs on metal is the high picture quality. This is due to the dye-sublimation printing method, which produces higher contrast and color brightness than conventional prints. This combined with the manual review process used by Printique ensures your images maintain their crisp definition and vibrancy.
The quality of your metal photo print is ultimately determined by the resolution of the image you choose. A photo file with a resolution of 3 or more megapixels is ideal for this type of printing.
Once you’ve selected a high-resolution image, you can choose from five print methods for your art piece. Each offers a unique design, materials and timing, price, and buying experience.
