TECHNIQUE

The image development technique we use incorporates traditional darkroom methods with high-tech. Images are hand-developed in a photo darkroom onto a metal plate. 

This differs from photo lab metal prints, which use metallic ink on the surface of an aluminum sheet. Our images are embedded within the layers of photosensitive anodized aluminum (also called photo-anodized aluminum), creating a permanent metal image which will stand the test of time.

Virtually impervious to harsh conditions (chemicals, heat, abrasion, salt spray, and ultraviolet). This product is an excellent choice for outdoor signage where weather and UV rays can quickly fade or decay other types of sign materials.

Images take on a sheen-like quality. The manner in which light shines across the metal offers a metallic and sometimes 3D-like appearance.
