What could be better than decorating your living and work spaces with art that inspires you?
There are many options when it comes to wall art, but today I’d like to talk about metal prints. These are not to be confused with metallic prints, which are printed on metallic-finish paper.
So what are metal prints?
Metal printing is a unique way of displaying art on your walls. The process involves infusing dye directly into a coated aluminum substrate, which results in beautiful, vibrant prints with great detail and resolution.
You generally have a choice between HG-style and clear-style metals. The difference comes from coating and it depends on the effect you’re trying to achieve.
For example, HG-style prints will have aluminum panels coated with a high gloss white base, which will help to bring out the colours of an image and really make them pop.
Clear-style prints do not have the white base, which allows the aluminum to shine through.
Metal prints are durable, weatherproof, moisture proof, scratch resistant, and are easily cleaned with a regular glass cleaner. Of course, like with any prints, they should be kept out of the direct sunlight as it will cause them to fade.
40×60″ metal print above is going into the office, whose business owner is inspired by the hustle and magnitude of New York City. I’ve taken the image on my trip to Big Apple back in 2013.
