While most people choose gloss as that is the finish that maximizes vibrancy, Semi-Gloss or Matte can give your photo a more subtle sophisticated look.
Since dye sublimation printers do not print white, the coating you choose is important. Most people choose white because the whites in the digital picture show up as... you guessed it... White! However the clear/silver coating has a cool effect making all the colors in the picture look more metallic. Can't decide? Order one of each!
PLEASE NOTE: Not all sizes come in all finish/coating combinations. We will let you know if you select one that we can't fulfill.
Here are the advantages of this product.
High level color and image quality.
MODERN FINISH No glass needed! The sublimated aluminum can can be suspended off the wall by using our included floating wall mount.
LARGE FORMAT As large as 48x96". Multiple panels can be joined together to create larger installations.
ARCHIVAL 65+ Years before fading - beats leading paper prints.
Due to the relatively low ink and other raw material cost as well as not needing to frame the metal prints, the pricing is competitive to other print types.
SCRATCH RESISTANT Dyes are infused into a special metal coating through sublimation. This makes it more durable than traditional paper and canvas imaging because it can’t be scratched or peeled off the surface.
WIPEABLE ARTWORK No need to worry about fingerprints or blemishes. A microfiber cloth and household cleaner can be used to clean these prints. Perfect for public spaces and other high traffic areas.
LIGHT WEIGHT Though extremely rigid and durable, the 90% recycled aluminum is light weight and easy to hang. A 40x60" panel with a aluminum float backing weighs approx. 13lbs.
Dye Sublimation inks are non-toxic water based inks. During sublimation they do not turn to liquid; they go directly to gas. There is no run off.
