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.
ChromaLuxe metal prints allow for an image to be infused directly into a thin coated metal sheet of aluminum, also called dye sublimation. This produces a print with a superior archival quality to withstand many different environmental factors and also produces a print that is easy to mount in a variety of locations due to the lightweight nature of the print. These images then achieve a vibrant and resolution making them unmatched in the industry. They are incredibly easy to clean as well by using simple glass cleaner. Currently I offer my ChromaLuxe Metal prints in sizes up to 96" wide.
The ChromaLuxe HD metal medium is incredibly durable and stands up to scratches and fading easily. They are even flame and water resistant as well, 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.
