Metal Prints

Get a metal print, impress your friends, add some style and flash to your life. This is a new medium for preserving photos by printing directly onto the aluminium surface using a dye-sublimation process which uses heat to transfer the dye onto the metal. This process causes the images to take on a magical luminescence with vibrant colors and detail. With three different finishes, sheer matte, satin and high gloss, and the freedom of custom sizing, the options are endless.  

Feel free to email us at info@photoworkssf.com for suggestions on how large your file can be printed. If you need a custom sized print you can call 415-626-6800 or email for more information on how to set that up online. You can also stop by our Market Street shop to speak to our counter staff and see samples of our prints in person.

Additional Information

There are three finishes to choose from when doing metal prints, high gloss, satin and sheer matte. The high gloss finish is a very reflective, smooth surface providing the most vibrant colors out of the three options. Satin finish metals are almost as vibrant as the high gloss but are less reflective so they are ideally suited for display areas that get a lot of direct light. The sheer matte finish is the least reflective option, it comes without the layer of white printed between your image and the metal allowing for the texture and color of the metal to show through which will change the tones in your image. There are also options for the print backings allowing for different methods of hanging-- float mount backs come with another raised metal sheet in the back with toothy notches for easy hanging on nails, wire backings add a metal frame to the back of your print with a wire strung across for easy hanging on nails or hooks. Additionally, for 12x24 or smaller prints, you can get an easel back for tabletop display. Metal prints are easily maintained, just wipe the surface with a soft, damp cloth.
