Providing vibrant color, a waterproof surface and a durable print without glass, our Metal Print Shapes are made with a dye-sublimation process. The inks are infused directly into specially coated aluminum sheets, using high temperature and pressure. Your images take on a bright, vibrant, luminescent quality when printed on metal through this process. All Metal Print Shapes have a glossy surface and are printed on our Standard Glossy metal.
Metal Shapes are available in five different styles: Round, Benelux, Sydney, Milan and Fiji. Each shape is available in multiple sizes. All sizes have templates available in the ROES ordering software to print the image the full size of the Metal Shape or to place a border around it. Use the Options panel in ROES to select the border color and/or pattern.
We offer several hanging options to turn your metal prints into a ready to display piece of art. The hanging options can be found in the ROES Options for each metal print shape. We offer easel backs for 8×8 & 8×10 prints for tabletop display. We also have two types of wall hanging options for prints 8×8 and larger: Float Mounts and Shadow Mounts. A float mount is a 5″ aluminum plate with a hole for hanging that is attached to the back of the metal print. A shadow mount is a black wooden block that is attached to the back of the metal print. For sizes 11×14 and larger, Shadow Mounts block is larger than a Float Mount. 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. Both Float Mounts and 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.
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. Metal prints are moisture proof, but will fade like normal photographs if exposed to direct sunlight. We recommend you display them in a location protected from direct exposure to sun light.
