Prints on Metal &n Acrylic Prints
This page is until I can come up with a more complete presentation of the subject…
Any image in my portfolio can be ordered printed on metal or mounted on acrylic. They tend to come out a little richer and a tad contrastier, more striking. The image is long lasting, and the semi-gloss surface washable. A large plate is attached to the back to keep the aluminum sheet flat, make the image sit about a half inch off the wall and provide a hanging system.
Minimum size for either is: 20" long direction
I will add prices for the various sizes as I order them. This example is a 17.7 x 24, priced as an 18x24, probably the mose effective size for my B&Ws. As I get a few done, they will join this on at RiverView Gallery here in Havre de Grace.
At this time, Prints on Metal are special-order items – allow two weeks for delivery. They have to ship to me from California and the be sent right back out. If one is on hand at the time, I will send it out immediately.
To order a Pinnt-on-Metal or an Acrylic-Print directly from me, FedEx shipping will be free – in a box that can be kept for safe transport. Simply contact me to make sure that the image selected can be printed the desired size. (Tax will have to be charged for inside Maryland / locally, personal delivery or pick-up can be arranged)
18 x 24 – $290.
Prints on Metal vs Acrylic Prints
Prints on Metal, or long-lasting dye-transfer prints on aluminum that hang directly on the wall, no matt, no frame and no glass. I can't print these myself in my studio so I send completely prepared and ready-to-print files out to a printer known for this service.
Acrylic Prints have a similar appearance, with a similar surface. However they are printed on a printer similar to mine with Epson Ultrachrome inks on a metallic surface paper which is bonded to a thick sheet of acrylic and then coated.
While the Print on Metal is a little more impervious to damage – the Acrylic print being able to be scratched if mishandled – the Acrylic Print is of a higher resolution and therefore sharper. Both are striking with a semi-gloss finish.
