Metal Prints - The answers to all your questions
What is special about metal prints?
Metal pictures are available in direct printing or lamination on a 3 mm thick aluminum Dibond backing. Dibond aluminum consists of two thin layers of aluminum which encase a black polyethylene core. It is a particularly lightweight and discreet material that fits seamless into modern interiors. Direct printing on aluminum offers a matte effect on a non-reflective surface.
How can I create and order a photo print on metal?
You can order your aluminum print online via the configuration tool. To submit your order, just transfer the photo you wish to enlarge to aluminum, then choose the type of print and paper, select the options from those available in the configuration tool and confirm your order.
What options are available for my metal print?
For your photo print on metal, first choose between direct printing or laminated printing on Dibond aluminum. For direct printing, you can opt for a classic aluminum backing or brushed aluminum, which offers a shimmering effect to your design. For lamination, three branded papers are available or you can select an ultraHD print, which is perfect for prints that are rich in detail. Furthermore, you can enhance your aluminum print with a custom-made frame. You will find a wide choice of frames to bring out the colors of your metal print.

Which different types of designs are best suited to photo prints on metal?
Aluminum is an elegant and contemporary material which is suited to a wide range of designs. Direct printing on aluminum will deliver a matte finish while faithfully reproducing the colors of your design. Direct printing on brushed aluminum will deliver a metallic shimmering effect to the light and white areas of the design. This format is particularly suitable for urban and architectural designs. For designs with specific characteristics, we recommend the special laminated papers on aluminum, such as the ultraHD print which is ideal for patterns rich in detail. To highlight your black and white prints, we highly recommend the black & white Ilford paper. In this case, the aluminum Dibond is the ideal mounting solution and does not affect the clarity of the image.
How can I hang my metal pictures?
A system of wall fixings is supplied with the print to ensure your photo receives optimal exposure. You can choose from a selection of metal rails or a screw system.
