My fine-art high definition, high gloss metal prints are produced by using industry leading ChromaLuxe HD metal panels and are a fantastic way to produce high quality photographic prints with a combination of incredible beauty, depth, detail and durability.
These prints are essentially a thin sheet of aluminum, which makes them surprisingly light with durability unmatched in fine art printing. ChromaLuxe Metal Prints are produced using a technology called sublimation, where inks are infused directly into specially coated metal sheets, creating images with stunning color, vibrancy and resolution. ChromaLuxe panels are scratch, fade, water and flame resistant. Requiring nothing more than simple glass cleaner, they are effortless to clean as well. Currently I offer my ChromaLuxe Metal prints in sizes up to 96" wide.
The ChromaLuxe HD metal medium is incredibly durable as well as being lightweight, making it a perfect choice for displaying your prints in public areas or in damp environments such as restrooms or outdoor displays. ChromaLuxe HD Prints appear bright and full of life in the majority of lighting conditions.
WHAT IS CHROMALUXE?
ChromaLuxe is the world’s leading manufacturer of high-definition sublimatable photo panels. The combination of color brilliance, superior durability and archival qualities makes ChromaLuxe the perfect choice for image reproduction. Using dye sublimation, durable metal prints will preserve images for generations to come. Instead of printing images directly onto a surface, which may scratch easily, the image is infused into the coating to provide permanent protection and lasting durability.
METAL ARTWORK PRINTING PROCESS
The UV resistant coating is bonded to an aluminum sheet that in turn is used to create a fine art piece using an amazing process called sublimation. During this process, a digital image is printed in reverse onto a special transfer paper and then with the use of a heat press, the transfer paper is pressed onto the surface of the aluminum sheet at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. The temperature heated press causes the inks to transfer directly into the poly-based coating of the aluminum in the form of a gas. The image is not simply printed on top of the surface of the aluminum, but instead is FUSED INTO the surface of the piece.
When first time viewers witness the quality of this product they often remark that it appears to be "printed on glass" or that it looks wet due to the striking detail, rich contrast and outstanding glossiness of the piece.
The vibrancy and dimensionality of ChromaLuxe HD metal prints rival any photographic product and exceed the quality of traditional paper prints when placed behind inherently imperfect glass. The high definition, vibrant colors coupled with superior fade, moisture, stain, and scratch resistant properties make ChromaLuxe HD Metal Prints an excellent choice for commercial, fine art, and home décor applications.
