Below are a few Q & A's about our Metal Prints.
Q. What are Metal Prints?
A. Metal prints are an exciting new high definition display option that transforms your photos into vibrant works of art. Our aluminum photo panels have an extremely durable (100 Year Archival Life} – flame, scratch, stain, UV resistant and waterproof surface that can be cleaned easily with a soft damp cloth. They are an excellent choice for commercial, fine art and home décor applications. Our revolutionary metal printing process infuses your image directly into an .045" aluminum sheet of metal with a proprietary polymer coating giving it an extremely vivid, luminescent 3D appearance that makes your photo literally pop off the surface. They are certain to turn heads and truly stand out anywhere.
Q. Will my metal print include a mount or easel?
A. There are several mounting options available according to the product and size you choose. Select your appropriate choice during “Create Now” process under the Mounts/Frames option. Many options are available so select carefully. NO MOUNT is the default so make sure to make a selection unless you want no mount on the back of your metal print.
Q. What types of surface finishes are available?
A. Choose from a variety of sizes in three different finishes: Gloss White, Semi Gloss White and Clear Gloss. Scroll down the appropriate “Create Now” page for finish details while placing your order or visit the HD Metal Prints page. Note: Currently, not all surface finishes are available on every size metal print.
Q. Is my metal print durable and easy to clean?
A. YES! Your metal print has an extremely durable (100 Year Archival Life) – flame, scratch, stain, UV resistant and waterproof surface that can be cleaned easily with a microfiber or soft cotton cloth. If needed, use a damp cloth and then wipe dry.
Q. Can I hang my aluminum metal prints outdoors?
A. YES – Your metal print has a moisture and UV resistant surface that looks great outdoors. However, it’s best if they are hung in shaded areas. Direct sunlight with longer exposure to UV rays will eventually cause the colors to fade slightly.

Due to this, Canvas and Metal Prints will not be financially responsible for the illegal reproduction of client’s images. We do take this situation seriously and if our client ever sees his image reproduced illegally and is concerned that it could have come due to our negligence, we would expect immediate contact from the client so the situation can be immediately remedied. Again, we as a company with employees that are also Photographers have always taken the precautions to protect all images that are provided to us.
