Aluminum Printing represents a new art medium for preserving photos and fine art by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Because the image is infused into the surface and not on it, your images will take on an almost magical luminescence. Aluminum Prints are available in 4 different surfaces: High Gloss, Satin, and Sheer with a Glossy or Matte finish. You've never seen a more brilliant and impressive print! Colors are vibrant and the luminescence is breathtaking. Detail and resolution are unsurpassed!Read More

How Archival are Aluminum Prints?
While photo papers have fantastic image stability, Xenon Light Stability Testing results show that the image stability of Aluminum Prints is 2 to 4 times the image stability of traditional silver based photo papers. Images printed with the Aluminum Prints process will last for generations when displayed indoors and out of direct sunlight. Like any fine art print, Aluminum Prints should not be exposed to direct sunlight or high outdoor temperatures. Aluminum Prints have an additional benefit over gicleé or photographic processes in that they are waterproof and have an ultra-hard scratch resistant coating. The archival value of a print should be judged not only by its resistance to degradation by U.V. light and ozone exposure, but also to moisture and surface damage. When these factors are brought into the equation, Aluminum Prints are an excellent way to preserve an image.
