...printing photos on metal?
Brilliant, sturdy & flexible: Metal prints
Yes, it can be done! It might sound a little strange at first but in fact it’s a practice that has been common for a long time already amongst professional photographers and hobbyists who appreciate quality. After all, metal is one of the lightest and most versatile image mediums there is. This and its radiant colour effects has made one of the most popular materials in the last years. Aluminium photo prints are also especially appreciated because of their amazing printing quality.
So it’s no wonder that vernissages and photo exhibitions often work with metal prints. Its lightness makes a print on metal particularly suitable for touring exhibitions or for dynamic, on-the-go city types, who move often and don’t want to be lugging heavy objects from place to place.
Aluminium prints allow for radiant, luminous effects
A photo print on metal is especially exciting because it gives you the opportunity to experiment with various effects. Depending on which motif you want to print on metal, you can choose between an aluminium base in white with a semi-matte effect and brushed metal. The former will look especially fantastic if you are keen to create a very colour-real, authentic result. The natural beauty of nature photography, landscapes, portraits or dramatic animal motifs in particular will come to the fore with this variant.
On the other hand, a metallic print on aluminium will fascinate all who view it with its dramatic shine. The processed structure in this variant can, however, mean that there may be some slight chromatic aberration from the original photo.
You’ll always have a successful result if you do this: simply increase the brightness of your image file by 5 points. This way you can be sure that the motif on the structured background won’t appear darker that you wanted and the lighter elements of your photo will be truly luminous! If you want to print a black and white photo or another motif with strong light/dark contrasts, a print on aluminium is the perfect choice.
Get creative with a photo print on aluminium
Did you know that printing on metal makes your photos extremely weather-resistant? Unlike many other photo mediums, metal is much less susceptible to damage than other surfaces thanks to its robust qualities.
At last you can hang your favourite photographs in damp environments such as the kitchen or bathroom, too! These rooms, that are sometimes rather neglected when it comes to decoration, will benefit in particular from an atmospheric aluminium photo print. A print on metal in principle leaves the selection of a motif wide open.
If you have a bathtub, for example, it can look amazing to have an aluminium print hanging directly above it for a relaxed atmosphere: something calming, sensual maybe, that you can gaze at and lose yourself in while soaking away the day in the bath. Lively and familial motifs are great for the kitchen. How about a photo from the last family get-together, for example?
Get creative and put a little pep into your daily environment.
Metal photo prints are always right
Flexible, light and sturdy: metal provides you with the option of having your photos printed in all imaginable colours and formats. It doesn’t matter at all what camera you used for the photo or what the motif is. But you should keep the following in mind: For metal prints, we need an image with at least 150 DPI. This is the only way we can guarantee that the quality of your aluminium photo print will meet the highest standards.
You can, however, choose between 50 different sizes for your photo print on aluminium. Whether an impressive panorama metal print for that rather bare spot above the sofa or a tasteful collage on aluminium as a birthday gift for your mother – your imagination will know no bounds!
