Do you own any metal prints yet?!?
If you said, “Huh — what is a metal print?” then you are about to discover the latest — and most fabulous — way to print and display photographs.
A metal photo print is a photograph that is printed on a sheet of aluminum.
You can have the image printed directly on to the aluminum, creating a natural metal look with the metal grain showing through the photograph like the sample here.
Or, how I usually order my metal prints, you can have the photo printed on white coated aluminum to create a bright image with rich colors.
With either the plain metal or white coating options, you can also choose a glossy finish or a matte finish, depending on if you want a reflective or non-reflective finish.
The result is a striking piece of art that is clean, modern and unique.
A few years ago, I started ordering metal prints for my photography clients and for my own personal photos. Around my house you will find several metal prints, including two huge metal print portraits of my kids hanging in my hallway.
The simple sheet of aluminum, with striking, rich colors and without the clutter of a frame, creates stunning wall art.
Where Can You Buy Custom Metal Prints?
In the past few years, metal prints have become incredibly popular.
Signs.com, the leader in the signage industry with over 25 years of experience, recently launched a Signs For Home section of their site where they offer natural wood, canvas, metal, and other prints options that make gorgeous gifts.
Signs.com asked us to review their metal prints and I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of their product.
While I normally order my metal prints with the white coating, I do like the metal grain finish with this particular image I shot of my daughter Olivia.
Metal Prints from Signs.com
At Signs.com, your photo is infused into .045” aluminum through dye-sublimation printing for a vibrant and long lasting metal print that is both scratch and abrasion resistant.
These custom metal prints feature outstanding clarity and resolution, displaying your original image in amazing detail.
And not only are metal prints beautiful with their rich colors and incredible clarity, but with the infused ink on aluminum you don’t have to worry about water damage, scratches or fading. These metal prints are durable.
I also love the versatile display options for the metal prints from Signs.com. You can choose from an invisible metal hanging bracket, gatorboard mount or professional standoffs to display your custom metal print where and how you want.
This Christmas I am ordering a bunch of metal prints for gifts. And since I am running a little late, I am super grateful that Signs.com has a super fast turn around time. You can order today and it ships tomorrow!
So hurry and order some custom metal prints for holiday giving — I am heading to upload and order some more right now…
