With prints on aluminum, there's an irresistible allure: As the brushed aluminum texture shows through, the image appears to be dynamic and changes as you view the print from different angles. Easy to love, beautiful to look at, it comes ready to hang. Your print on aluminum isn’t just stunning, it’s also durable. With no paper involved, it is moisture proof and lightfast--you don’t have to worry about humidity and sunlight aging your print.

Brushed aluminum texture
wherever your image is white or bright.

With new direct UV print technology, no white ink is printed unless specified. The ink is sprayed directly onto the aluminum substrate and the result is that any areas of your image with white or any area that is bright with strong highlights will allow the bare print material (aluminum) to remain exposed.Images with a lot of white, high in contrast or those that have punchy graphic design are well suited to aluminum prints.

However, we highly recommend ordering a sample or coming into our studio to see the material with your own eyes. Direct prints on aluminum are incredibly stunning, and incredibly difficult to fully describe. We can only come so close to explaining and showing the exquisite properties over digital platforms.



CNC Milling for precise cuts,
polished edges and unique shapes.

If you have several prints of the same size such as in the case of triptychs, only CNC cuts can guarantee that your prints will match in size.
