Dye-Sub Metal Print

Dye Sublimation (or "dye-sub") on metal is unmatched in reproducing vivid color.

If brilliance is what you seek, dye-sub is the way to go.

An added benefit: the process also often imbues your image with a "3D" look.

What Is Dye Sublimation?

In the dye sublimation printing process the image is first printed on a high-resolution transfer medium. Then with precise registration the transfer medium is pressed against a coated aluminum sheet.  This aluminum has been treated to ensure greatest performance and longevity.

Then the image along with the aluminum sheet are heated.  This causes the aluminum's coating to swell while at the same time evaporating the inks. The ink instantly becomes a gas that in turn is trapped in the coating.  The unique aluminum coating absorbs the printing dyes and hardens as it cools. 

And your image is locked in place..

What are the benefits of Dye Sublimation Printing

Metal prints are known for their wide gamut allowing for very saturated colors. 

Dye sublimation has greater durability than inkjet because the ink is infused directly into the pores of the metal. Put simply - it cannot chip off.

Your print will be resistant to all types of damage, protecting your investment.
