What exactly are High Definition Dye sublimated Aluminum Float Prints?
Also commonly called MetalPrints, are a High Definition - High-Resolution fine art medium that has become one of the two most recommended and preferred methods of presenting my artwork. MetalPrints are a relatively new and exciting Fine Art medium that combines incredible beauty, superb depth, and amazing clarity in an extremely durable presentation. To put it bluntly, we've come a long way baby from the traditional fine art print papers of the past!
MetalPrints are scratch resistant, water resistant and won't fade over time. They are known to be the longest lasting photographic display medium on the market as of 2015.
The making of a MetalPrint is a difficult and complex process. This is not a craft and technique that photographers undertake from home, simply by purchasing an inkjet printer and print paper. I travel to professional trade shows and meet face to face with vendors that offer their talents and services. To gain my business they must prove their high level of craftsmanship. Each Metal print is a handcrafted work of art! I only trust my works to be individually created for my clients by the finest professional printing specialist in the USA
What is Float Mounted? The Aluminum sheets have mounting brackets permanently attached to the reverse side of the print. This process spaces the print 1/2" from the wall making for a sleek, gallery-style presentation. I explain this in detail below under Display options, and also with display photos below.
What's Dye Sublimation all about?
Here is a brief overlook of the process called sublimation. First, a brilliant white coating is applied to a perfectly smooth sheet of precision cut .045 aluminum used to create the art print. My photograph is then printed onto a unique transfer paper. Using a heat press, the transfer paper is then pressed onto the treated aluminum sheet at a temperature of over 400 degrees. In essence, the image is not "printed" onto the metal rather it is fused directly into the coated metal.
There are very few professional labs that have mastered this difficult process and are able to create breathtaking hi-definition prints. The colors, contrast and intimate details are amazing when using this beautiful fine art printing process. My MetalPrints are available to choose from a selection of three beautiful finishes. High Gloss, Mid-Gloss and a Satin (matte) finish.
I only use the highest quality metal print lab dedicating their services to professional photographers, and that is my personal guarantee to my customers.
My entire body of work is available to purchase as Aluminum dye-sublimated. I offer sizes starting with 8x12" prints, and depending on the original file resolution my standard 2:3 aspect ratio prints can be ordered in Luxury sizes up to 30x45" and 40x60".
Display Options: I offer two display options for MetalPrints. The standard option is what is called Float Mounted. The float mounts are metal hanger brackets permanently attached to the rear of the print. They are ready to hang the moment you unpack them from their shipping crates! The concept is, the artwork is floated 1/2" from the wall surface for an amazing, elegant and sleek gallery presentation. The corners are slightly rounded for a handsome appearance.
The premium option is what I call Exhibit Mount. The difference is these metal prints are mounted to 2mm thick black styrene backing, and then finished with an all black metal inset frame that allows you to attach to a wall surface using a French cleat hanging system. This adds additional durability and a highly attractive presentation appearance.
