Prints on Metal.
Although Rock and Roll photos have traditionally been displayed as paper prints, metal has been gaining popularity and is an interesting and modern medium for Rock And Roll prints. The image quality is excellent with deep rich blacks and very good detail.
Metal Prints represent a new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Because the image is infused into the surface and not on it, your images will take on an almost magical luminescence. Our Metal Prints are available in Satin with a Matte finish to avoid reflection. Detail and resolution are unsurpassed. They come with Float Mount Block floats print 1/2-inch off wall and slightly rounded corners
With Metal the ultra-hard scratch-resistant surface is waterproof/weatherproof and can be carefully cleaned with soft cloth including microfiber. Care should be taken not to bend the aluminum. Like any photographic process direct sunlight should be avoided.
How archival are MetalPrints? While photo papers have fantastic image stability, Xenon Light Stability Testing results show that the image stability of MetalPrints is 2 to 4 times the image stability of traditional silver based photo papers. Images printed with the Metal Prints process will last for generations when displayed indoors and out of direct sunlight. Like any fine art print, Metal Prints should not be exposed to direct sunlight or high outdoor temperatures. Metal Prints have an additional benefit over giclee or photographic processes in that they are waterproof and have an ultra-hard scratch resistant coating. The archival ability of a print should be judged not only by its resistance to degradation by U.V. light and ozone exposure, but also to moisture and surface damage. When these factors are brought into the equation, Metal Prints are an excellent way to preserve an image.
Our Metal prints are signed on the back of the print with the option of also being signed on the front bottom right or left corner depending on the image. They are delivered ready to hang.
