Premium Photographic Prints on Metal: Aluminium water and fire proof prints  

 

With over 100 images to chose from and bespoke commissioning, we use a process called ‘dye sublimation’ to produce images or artwork on slimline aluminium with either a high gloss or matte finish. These 1.2mm thin metal prints have an intense depth and colour intensity that is comparable to that of traditional Cibachrome prints or photographs produced using Kodak Kodachrome or Fujifilm Velvia colour-reversal or transparency films. Images are first printed as a Giclee print using these inks, on to transfer paper, which is then applied to a specially coated 1.2mm aluminium panel via a heat press. Using both heat and pressure the dye particles change into a gas, bond with the polymers in the aluminium, and then change back into a solid state; fusing the image and aluminium together.

The 8 dye sublimation inks we use for the production of the images consist of a solid and heat intensive dye.
