Soften The Look of a MetalPrint
Textured and Satin Surfaces
When most photographers hear "MetalPrints", they might think of super glossy and modern displays that appear hard around the edges. Here's your friendly reminder that it is in fact possible to soften the look of a MetalPrint! Sometimes, especially to match a warm or more rustic interior, we recommend our matte surfaces, for a more unsuspectingly aluminum display while keeping the impressive vivid color, durability and cleanability that come with the nature of the material. Textured surface is our most matte surface, and adds a canvas-like quality to your MetalPrint while protecting it from any fingerprints. If you're after a smoother look while keeping the matte finish, Satin surface will be sure to satisfy.
Frames are a great option for MetalPrints, if you're looking for a more finished display than the default floating and frameless presentation that may come first to mind. Our wide-ranging selection of mouldings includes classic wooden frames, and traditional gallery style frames that will take your image even further into the softer side of MetalPrints.
Add Elegance She Can Float Into
Float Frames are known for the added depth they provide a variety of print displays, including Canvas Wraps, MetalPrints, Deckled Edge Fine Art Prints, and Epic Prints. Why she'll love them? Float Frames are available in 14 different mouldings, and each become a prominent part of the finished piece, starting from an otherwise simpler (but already-beautiful) display. Showing a 1/4" gap between the frame and the edge of the print, they display a beautiful floating effect, and are finished with paper backing and a wire hanger for ready-to-display delivery.
Honor Her Beauty with Mother Nature's
If you're looking to gift or offer an ultra-eco-friendly and equally unique display, try our reclaimed Barnwood Frames - found locally to the lab in Santa Cruz County! Sourced from aged fences, old floorboards, marine wood and of course old barns, Barnwood Frames have a beachy feel, and rustic charm. These frame mouldings are cleaned before they're handcrafted, and the roughness, imperfections and discoloration are what distinguish each piece as a true one-of-a-kind. Available with Photographic Prints, Fine Art Prints, and as Float Frames for MetalPrints, Canvas Wraps, Deckled Edge Fine Art Prints and Epic Prints.
Maple Wood Prints are ½” thick maple-surfaced wood boards that are printed on using high quality and very durable UV-cured inks, for a beautiful print option that is also eco-friendly and a good choice for our world! Available with a white ink underlay or natural surface to show even more grain through your image, Wood Prints offer a warm look and vintage feel for the tabletop or wall. We've seen Wood Prints blend well in both rustic and modern environments, and they look especially fantastic in a minimalist-style interior.
We love Bamboo! That's why you'll see it pop up in a variety of product catalogs. We've talked about the beauty of Float Frames as well as classic Frames, which are available in either Natural or Carbonized Bamboo mouldings. We also offer Bamboo Display Stands available with Gallery Boards (made of 100% recycled material), MetalPrints and Mounted Photographic Prints. Our Standout Mounts include Bamboo as a substrate option, adding substantial weight and environmentally conscious style to your display. Let's not forget our luxurious 150# Bamboo Press Printed Paper and Hahnemühle Bamboo Fine Art Paper, both displaying an ultra-matte finish with natural tones and subtle texture.
