Aluminum prints are crafted using dye sublimation, a process that involves infusing dyes under heat and pressure directly into a glaze coated on the aluminum. The dyes are suspended just above the metal's surface, allowing light to pass through and reflect off the metal, creating an illuminated effect from behind. Our most substantial aluminum panel measures 4 feet by 8 feet (1.22m x 2.44m), but larger images can be achieved by using multiple panels. This allows for impressive and expansive artwork installations.
Dye sublimation produces an archival quality print that will last a life time. These prints can be placed in various environments, whether indoors or outdoors. For example, a large piece positioned above our gallery entrance, and exposed to the elements for several years, has shown no apparent signs of deterioration. To provide added protection against harsh environmental conditions, we have the capability to laminate glass onto the surface of our metal prints. This additional safeguard proves particularly useful for applications like backsplashes and showers.
These art pieces offer versatile display options - they can be either hung flat on the wall using the provided hanging hardware, or elegantly framed. Moreover, maintaining the surface is effortless, as the supplied microfiber cloth and isopropyl alcohol make cleaning a breeze.
