Why print photos on metal

Metal prints have a magical luminescence and vibrancy. You've never seen a more brilliant and impressive print! Many people think that the prints are back lit because of their beautiful glow.

Using high heat and pressure, special inks are infused into coated aluminum plates. Because the image is infused into and not onto the special coating, the prints have an archival value and durability that is unparalleled. According to Wilhelm Imaging Research, "Metal prints have Display Permanence Ratings on the order of 50 years, plus they are extremely scratch resistant".

Besides from their superior longevity and scratch resistance, metal prints are also waterproof. This makes them ideal for hanging in bathrooms, kitchens and other areas where paper prints would be susceptible to water damage. Metal prints can be cleaned with any nonabrasive household cleaner or disinfectant, making them the perfect print media for any public display. Another attribute of metal prints is their rigidity. This lends it self to some unique display possibilities. 

Simply put, metal prints are awesome!
