Overview

An HD Metal Print is a very durable as well as premium product. Being low in weight it is also ideal for large image formats. Add to that the weather and water resistant qualities, it can be suited for even outdoor display. Through the use of the highly advanced printing technique, the pigments are bonded permanently. But how exactly did the image end up on that metal sheet is what will be tackled further.

What is the actual process?

It starts with the highest quality aluminum sheet of 4’x8’ and as thick as 1mm. Then this aluminum sheet is specially coated meant to absorb the image. Then the desired size is cut using a precise equipment producing smooth and clean edges. Then this is taken to the machine.

The image is first printed on a special transfer-paper, and then once done this is placed on the top of the metal sheet. Using a high temperature oven, the paper is pressed to the metal sheet by applying a high pressure. This now is the process known as sublimation. 

The overall result is HD metal prints once the metal sheet is stripped of the paper and out of the oven. Often when the transfer paper is remove people looking at the result will be awed at the amazing image on the metal sheet. Its colors are so vivid and can even seem to pop out from the metal itself revealing a 3D effect.

The metal print is then moved for backing where in that station a back block frame is secured through a strong adhesive and bumpers. Included is a block that can secure the metal print to the wall.

Finally The resulting image when mounted on the wall is pure magic. There are other variations of the metal designs that can make it more artistic in its presentation but that will be in another discussion.
