Metal Makes it Matter
Vivid Metal Prints pioneered the dye-sublimation on aluminum process in 2003. We remain solely focused and dedicated to this method as we believe it is the ultimate translation of an artist’s vision and the most stunning solution to any empty wall in your home, business, or gallery.
Traditional photo processors print liquid ink dots onto a substrate, usually paper or canvas, resulting in a loss of resolution. The dye sublimation on aluminum process, however, achieves a pure transfer of the original image by using heat and pressure to transform inks into a gaseous state and meld them into the substrate. We don’t print your image on metal, we turn metal into your image.
