What Is a Metal Print?

So, you want to turn your original photos and designs into custom wall art. Maybe you considered canvas or acrylic, but the metal prints caught your eye? We totally get it. Metal Wall Art has its own style and appeal, making them a beautiful and popular way to display special moments. A sleek metallic finish adds a unique touch to all kinds of photo projects while creating an instant accent piece for any room.

Let’s take a look at some of the key features and benefits of metal wall décor.

How are images or photographs printed on metal?

We use a combination of heat and pressure to infuse your image into a radiant, ultra-thin aluminum panel with smooth, rounded edges. This thermal transfer process creates a vivid, crisp image with superior clarity. Using a wide print gamut and high-gloss coating also ensures vibrant color and authentic reproduction.

Are metal prints better than canvas prints?

Each finish has its own style and unique qualities. Metal wall décor is perfect for high-color photographs and designs. Vibrant hues and crisp details stand out on smooth, luminous metal prints, whether your photo has a deep depth of field (large area in focus) or a shallow depth of field (small area in focus, foreground or background blurred). On canvas prints, the woven texture and semi-gloss finish can lend a painterly feel to photos with a shallow depth of field.  

Printing photos on metal creates a dramatic, modern look, while archival-quality canvas prints have a softness and warmth that is perfect for keepsake photography and artistic portraits. Geometric designs and abstract art look beautiful with a canvas or metal finish. If you’re seeking a budget-friendly option, Blurb’s metal and canvas prints cost less than acrylic prints.

How do you hang a metal print?

Blurb’s 8×10-inch metal prints feature a wood block with omni-directional key holes for easy hanging with a nail or screw. Larger prints feature a wall mount cleat with screws, and drywall anchors. All hanging hardware sits ½ inch off the wall to give you versatile hanging options and create a uniform look if you want to make a gallery wall with different sized art prints. If you prefer not to mount your art on the wall, you can also lean it on a mantle or bookshelf, making it super easy to rotate new pieces into your display.

Can you frame a metal print?

There’s no need to worry about choosing a frame or matte for metal wall décor because each piece is designed to stand out on its own and arrives ready to hang. The frameless display offers a simple, clean, contemporary look.
