Robin Imaging prints on metal are made by sublimating the image onto a specially coated .045 aluminum.
This results in a image that has more saturation and depth to it than traditional prints.
Since there is no paper, water will not damage it and the aluminum can easily be cleaned with glass cleaner and a soft cloth.
We offer four surfaces:
White Gloss is the most popular. It has the highest saturation and depth. It works great with people photos and scenes, giving them a very vivid appearance.
White Matte is often used for reproducing artwork. The image is a bit more subtle than the gloss and there are no reflections.
Clear Gloss has no white base, so any part of your image that would be white allows the aluminum to be seen. This is great for use with metal objects. Combining the metal texture coming through with blacks or intense colors makes a very dramatic effect.
Clear Matte makes B&W photos look like old fashion tin types.
If you are not sure which surface would look best with your image, for a small charge we will print a set of four 4”x4” pieces that show the four different finishes.
