What Is A Metal Print Photo?

Metal prints on aluminum are both an art and a science. They were invented by Roger Laudy in 2003. Competitors tried to imitate our process and none can even begin to compare with the life-like quality of an original Image Wizards metal print.

A metal print takes your digital image, prints it on a special paper, with special sublimation inks. We take that image and under the right combination of heat, time and pressure, we sublimate—that means we turn the inks into a vapor before they turn back into a solid—and the molecules go inside a specially coated aluminum surface. It is part art and science. We make more than metal prints—we make AluminArte. After we print on aluminum each AluminArte metal print is painstakingly reviewed, then we carefully frame the metal print and we securely package it and ship it to you. It arrives, framed and ready to hang out of the box.

If you want a proof of your metal print we do that too. In fact, we make an in house metal print proofs on all of our work. We do this because what you see on the screen Is not necessarily what you see on the finished metal print. We are obsessive about quality metal prints and our proofing process takes time, but the results are worth it.

AluminArte metal prints by Image Wizards are simply the finest metal prints you can buy. We take fine art metal printing to a whole new level with our exclusive state-of-the-art sublimation process.
