Metal Prints

Your images take on a bright, vibrant, luminescent quality when printed on metal. Our Metal Prints are made with a dye-sublimation process.  The inks are infused directly into specially coated aluminum sheets, using high temperature and pressure.

  • Vibrant Color
  • Durable prints without glass
  • Waterproof

Five Print Surfaces

Metal prints are available in five different surfaces: Standard Glossy, Standard Semi-Gloss, Standard Matte, Brushed Aluminum Glossy and Brushed Aluminum Matte.  The Standard surface has a bright white backing layer that gives your image a sense of depth and vibrant colors.  The Brushed Aluminum surface has a transparent backing layer that allows the brushed metal of the aluminum panel to show through in the finished prints.  It will be especially apparent in white and light areas of the print.  Prints over 20×30 are only available in the Standard Glossy or Standard Semi-Gloss surface.

Please note, the coating on metal prints sometimes contains small imperfections, such as small depressions or bumps.  We carefully inspect each sheet and if there are imperfections, we try to place them in the most unobtrusive parts of the image.  We cannot remake metal prints due to these imperfections, unless they are located in a very prominent part of the image.

Superior Fade Testing Results

The high definition, vibrant colors of metal prints coupled with superior fade, moisture, stain, and scratch resistant properties make them an excellent choice for commercial, fine art and home décor applications.

Two independent laboratories have conducted environmental life tests on ChromaLuxe Metal Print Photo Panels and have concluded they are the longest lasting photo medium in the market. The first laboratories’ testing replicated the effects of incandescent lighting along with indirect natural sunlight against the likelihood of noticeable fading over time. ChromaLuxe was compared against the top three long-lasting (archival) photo papers with test results showing that ChromaLuxe lasts twice as long as the next closest photo paper and four times longer than the third best photo paper.The second independent laboratories’ testing replicated the effects of fluorescent lighting in a windowless office environment. In this test, measuring the likelihood of noticeable fading, ChromaLuxe outlasted its next closest long-lasting photo paper by a factor of 1.7 times the life of the photo paper.

Sample Packs Available

Order a sample pack to show your customers. Once they see Metal Prints they’re sure to want several to display in their home.  Sample packs contain a 5×7 metal print of the same image on all five metal surfaces.  Each print has the type of surface printed on the front for easy identification.

Metal Prints with Wall Hanging Options

We have four types of wall hanging options for prints 8×8 and larger: Float Mounts, Shadow Mounts, StandOuts (with a 1/8″ Reveal and Flush Cut), and Stainless Steel Posts.

Float mount is a 5″ aluminum plate with a hole for hanging that is attached to the back of the metal print.  Float Mounts hold the metal print a half inch away from the wall, so the metal print appears to “float” in front of the wall. Float Mounts are available for prints 16×16 and smaller.


Shadow mount is a much larger black, wooden, block that is attached to the back of the metal print. Shadow mounts, because of their larger contact surface, tend to hold the metal print flatter and more rigidly. They also provide a finished black back, if the print is viewed from the side. Shadow Mounts hold the metal print a half inch away from the wall, so the metal print appears to “float” in front of the wall.


StandOuts are ready to hang, edge banded, 3/4″ foam board and come in two styles: Reveal and Flush Cut. In the Reveal style the metal print is larger than the foam board by 1/8″ on each side. The metal print has rounded corners and is slightly larger than the foam board. In the Flush Cut style, the metal print is trimmed to be the same size as the foam core.  Flush Cut StandOuts have square corners that are quite sharp. Please use caution when handling or hanging Flush Cut StandOuts. Both types of StandOuts come with a reinforced metal hanging bracket. All sizes are available with Black edge banding and certain sizes are also available with White, Silver or Maple edge banding.


Stainless Steel Posts give metal prints a modern, signage look.  The posts are 3/4 of an inch in diameter and hold the print 3/4 of an inch off the wall. The posts attach through holes in the four corners of the metal print.  The barrels of the posts screw to the wall and then the threaded caps screw into the stainless steel barrels to attach the print to the wall.Sizes and Prices including available mounting options.
