Printing on Metal





Metal prints are a unique way to display your images. Our metal prints are available in Gloss White, Matte White or Clear Gloss surfaces.

Gloss White

The Gloss White Surface is the most popular. It gives your image crisp bright colors with a lot of depth. It almost looks 3-Dimensional.



Matte White

The Matte White Surface is clean and smooth. It prevents reflections from nearby windows or lights. The image colors and detail are clean and sharp.



Clear Gloss

The Clear Gloss option gives a good color pop, while showing the surface of the metal underneath. This is a fun and cool surface that shows texture not only in the white areas, but through the print areas too!



There are several options for displaying your metal print:

Back for small prints

For smaller prints, we attach a small wood block. This gives you an area to hang it from and lifts it off the wall for a nice “floating” look. This usually is best on metal prints no larger than 8×10. For this option, choose 1/2″ Lightweight Block before checkout.


Backing Frame

The second option is the most common choice. A “frame” is affixed to the back of the metal print, and hanging wire is attached to that frame. Again, it “floats” off the wall and helps create depth to your display. Pick 3/4″ Inset Back Floating With Wire Hanger for this option.


Metal Standoffs

A third option creates a beautiful finish to your image. Metal “standoffs” are put through holes in the corners of your metal print and attached to your wall. It offers an added “metallic” feel to your final image. Choose 3/4″ Brushed Silver Standoff Post (4 corners) at checkout for this option.


Z bar hanger

Option four is often used to hang larger or heavier pieces. It is a “cleat” style hanging system called “Z-bar.” One metal strip is attached to the back of the metal image. Another is attached to the wall. The two strips interlock into one another giving a firm and rigid attachment to the wall. For this option, choose 3/4″ Inset Back Floating With Z-Bar at checkout.


Curved Metal

A unique way to display your metal prints on shelves, countertops or desktops it to have your image curved. Horizontal images work well as there is the greatest edge in contact with the surface it rests on. It is fun and simple. Requires no hanging materials and is easily moved from place to place. Curved Horizontal Print is the option to choose at checkout.


Flat Metal Print

Finally, we can provide the metal print to you without any additional hardware or backing. This is a great option should you decide to fit the print in a frame, standard or floating! Check out our options for framing. Many are unique and contemporary.








Our dye sublimation process takes your print projects from boring to extraordinary. Finally, you won’t be constricted by the type of paper your print shop has available!

Instead, with our top-of-the-line machines, you’ll be able to print on all manner of unique materials, especially aluminum metal.

Dye Sublimation Printing for Metal & Aluminum Color Printing

One of the main advantages of this upscale process is that it opens the door to new and unique looks, including metal signage.

Metal is a superior material because of its smooth and durable nature. Many companies struggle to get clear and sharp images onto the material, but with our dye sublimation machines, it becomes a breeze. Using dye sublimation, metal printing and aluminum printing produce better signage for your business.

Not only will you get a one-of-a-kind look, but our processes won’t take weeks to produce either. Give your brand a sleek and sophisticated style by printing on metal and aluminum.

Your brand has a special feel — shouldn’t your signage be the same?

High-Quality Printing

The second advantage to choosing dye sublimation is its high quality. Digital printing presses apply the ink in a pixel style. This means that small dots of ink are placed on the material to create the desired image.

Dye sublimation is different. The ink is vaporized before it’s applied. This allows it to permeate the entire area, without leaving spaces or white areas between the pixels. The process gives your project a more defined and vibrant image.

If you want better images, the dye sublimation process is the way to go. You’ll get higher-quality prints, especially for metal color printing and aluminum color printing.

Long-lasting Images with Dye Sublimation

Lastly, this process is also more durable than other methods of printing. While inkjet and digital printers print on the top of an area, sublimation infuses the ink into the very material itself.

This helps your projects look newer for longer. Once you find that perfect design, you’ll want it to last and not worry about flaking or fading.

With our printers, you can trust that your projects will look good for a long time to come.
