Print on aluminium – the hot tip
Aluminium prints are a special tip for photographers who place great importance on the print quality of their work. This is the reason why so many professional photographers prefer this material. When creating a print onto aluminium, the colours and contrasts can be rendered perfectly in a high resolution. The aluminium print is also inherently stable and resistant. This all makes aluminium prints a favourite of professional photographers.
We offer aluminium printed photos in two variants: White semi matte is the standard version, which is ordered by most customers. It provides all the advantages of aluminium photo prints. Brushed metallic Alu-Dibond is particularly popular for architectural photography or for technical motifs. All elements that were originally white in the photo will appear shiny and metallic in the finished aluminium print.
Tip: The JPEG photo format is ideal to print onto aluminium
Photo printed on aluminium
Alu-Dibond printing is carried out these days exclusively in a direct printing process. In this process, the colours are printed directly onto the surface of the aluminium plate. This means that there is a direct bond between the print and the Alu-Dibond, which allows the finished aluminium print to be hung even in wet rooms. This is because, in contrast to glued-on prints, the direct print cannot peel off or yellow.

Order aluminium prints
Ordering your own aluminium prints is very easy if you keep a few hints in mind: Most important is the resolution of the photo that you want to use for your aluminium print. Since we can print on aluminium at very high resolutions, the size of the photo is decisive. It should in any case be more than 3 megapixels. If you want to have especially large photographs printed onto aluminium, you may need a photo file of over 10 megapixels. In any case, the rule of thumb is: The higher the resolution of the photo, the better the large metal print will be.
Once you’ve uploaded your photo, you can then select the size for your aluminium photo. We offer both product variants in a wide range of attractive formats. But we can also manufacture custom formats on request for your aluminium print.

Hanging aluminium photo prints properly
Aluminium prints need a special hanging system for attaching securely to a wall. We offer three clever hanging systems that have been specially developed for hanging aluminium photo prints.
The best hanging systems for aluminium printed photos are Couple and Steel20. Using the “Couple” system, the aluminium print can be hung so that it appears to be floating freely. The hangers are glued onto the back of the metal print in this case, meaning that they cannot be seen from the front.
The “Steel” hanging system ensures that the aluminium photo prints are securely anchored to the wall, even in outside areas. For this purpose, four holes are drilled into the aluminium print. The print is then pinned to the wall securely through these holes.
