If you are looking for super high definition prints with brilliant color vibrancy, Metal Prints are the way to go! Metal prints, also known as Aluminum Prints, offer a vibrancy of color not seen in other types of prints. Because of the way that the image is infused into the aluminum’s coating, the colors on a metal print are incredibly vivid. Upon viewing an aluminum print for the first time, people often think the brilliance of color is due to artificial lighting, rather than the medium itself.
Despite the name, metal prints are not actually printed onto the metal. Your image is first printed onto a transfer paper and, with a combination of the perfect amount of heat and pressure, the image is “baked” into a polymer-coated sheet of aluminum. The heat turns the ink into a gaseous state and bonds it to the polymer coating. This process is called sublimation. The image is now infused into the metal and the print is left to cool off. We then finish the process by installing whatever mounting option you have chosen.
The polymer coating of the print makes it durable and scratch resistant, as well as unaffected by water. Cleaning is as easy as wiping your print down with a microfiber or other soft cloth. If smudges or fingerprints persist you can also apply warm water or a mild cleanser. Please note, however, that aluminum prints are meant to be displayed indoors. Direct sunlight will cause the colors in your print to fade over time, so make sure that you display your prints in a suitable place.

Floating frames are a distinctive framing choice that can set your artwork off and garner more attention for it. Designed for artwork that is printed or painted on canvas, floater frames give art the illusion of floating inside the picture frame without touching it, which creates an interesting visual detail and a sense of three-dimensional depth in the overall display.
A benefit of the floating frame over regular frames is that it does not cover the front of the image, allowing the entire front of the photograph or painting to be displayed. The floating frame helps to separate the photo from its surroundings and draws attention to the artwork itself, providing a modern and elegant look.
