Metal Printing

 

 

Description 

Prints on metal are made by sublimating the image onto a specially coated .045 aluminum.

This results in a image that has more saturation and depth to it than traditional prints.

Since there is no paper, water will not damage it and the aluminum can easily be cleaned with glass cleaner and a soft cloth

 

Single Metal

Your image is printed on .045” aluminum.

We have several different options available for either hanging on a wall or standing on a flat surface.

 

Stacked Metal

Robin Imaging adds a second layer of printed metal behind the first, to add dimension to your piece.

The background can be the your same image as on the front, a different image, or one of our designer backgrounds.

You can also do other effects such as changing the background to B&W or using a different surface.

 

Metal On Acrylic

Robin Imaging offers a choice of frosted or black acrylic backgrounds mounted behind your image.

The image floats off the acrylic and the acrylic has a mount on the back to float it off the wall.

This creates a nice separation from the wall without using a frame.

 

Surfaces and Sizes

White Gloss

This is the most popular material. It has the highest saturation and depth. It works great with people photos and scenics, giving them a very vivid appearance.

 

White Matte

This is often used for reproducing artwork. The image is a bit more subtle than the gloss and there are no reflections.

 

Clear Gloss

This is the second most popular surface. Since there is no white coating on this material, any area that would be white on the image allows the aluminum to be seen through the image. This is great for use with metal objects. Combining the metal image coming through with blacks or intense colors makes a very dramatic effect.

 

Clear Matte

This surface is the most subtle of all. B&W photos can be made to appear like old fashion tin types.

If you are not sure which surface would look best with your image we offer for a small charge a set of four 4”x4” pieces that show the four different finishes.

 

Sizes

Prints are available in sizes from 5x7 – 20x24. We also offer circles and can shape cut to add an even more unique look.

 

Finishing

Robin Prints on Metal are extremely durable and can be displayed without spraying or framing. We offer several display options.

 

Easel back

A metal easel back is attached to the back allowing it to stand by itself on a table or counter.

 

Shadow Mount

This is the most popular method of display. A block is attached to the back of the print allowing it to be hung on the wall with a nail or screw. Once hung it appears that the image is floating from the wall. This gives it a dimensional look.

 

Standoffs

The metal can be mounted to a wall using aluminum standoff posts.

 

Backgrounds

We offer numerous backgrounds that can be mounted behind your image. The aluminum is mounted to a block that is set off from the background material. Then the background can mounted to another block that offsets it from the wall. This creates a very dimensional and dramatic effect. Our standard sizes for this are 8x8 on a 12x12 background, 12x16 on a 16x20 background, 16x20 on a 20x24 background, and 20x24 on a 24x28 background.

Background materials available include:

 

  •  Galvanized steel
  •  Brushed Stainless steel
  •  Black Sintra
  •  Black acrylic
  •  Frosted acrylic
  •  Printed Metal – a second image is printed and used as a background. This can be one of your images or 

    one of our stock backgrounds.

     

    Some items require special ordering. Consult with our customer service staff to determine what backgrounds would work best with your images.

     

    Samples

    It is much easier to visualize how your work will reproduce when you see samples. We have samples of all of our materials and finishes available for you to review.

     

    Life Expectancy

    Display Conditions

    The life expectancy of prints on metal is greatly dependant on display conditions and is directly related to the amount of UV light exposure. When prints are not exposed to sunlight or other UV sources they are extremely stable. They are durable enough to be used outside, but sunlight will gradually fade them. How long that takes is directly dependant on the amount of sunlight it receives.
