WHITE BASE - aluminium has a white coated base to give images a true to life look, similar to a photo. Available in:
Ultra gloss - Our most popular surface, for when you want whites to appear white and for more natural colour and skin tones. Brilliant high gloss surface for highly saturated colour and clear detail. A modern look and suitable for all images. If in doubt we always recommend the Ultra Gloss which never disappoints.
Semi gloss - in between Ultra Gloss and Matte, this white base surface ensures the richness of the Ultra Gloss on a more matte surface to cut down on reflection.
Matte - this softer, more natural surface is ideal for when reflection may be an issue.
BRUSHED ALUMINIUM BASE - with no white coating or white ink being used, you can clearly see the raw aluminium and grain of the base come through in areas you would expect to see white and colours have a metallic look. Available in:
Brushed gloss - gives your image an amazing high gloss finish with a metallic look. A unique feature of this finish is that depending on the way the light falls on this surface it can look slightly lighter or darker as you view it from different angles. Certainly makes black and white look awesome as it will appear black and silver.
Brushed matte - like the brushed gloss, the brushed matte surface allows the silver aluminium base to appear in areas that would usually be white. Metal subjects such as escalator or car look fantastic on this surface. The matte finish cuts down on reflection.
It's difficult to see on a website the amazing colour and detail that make metal so highly regarded as a premium print product. You really need to see it to believe it.

Metal prints are printed on aluminium sheets that have a special coating. Due to the nature of this coating there can occasionally be small bubbles that appear as small bumps or dips on the surface. We inspect all sheets for these and will position the image on the metal in the best possible place so as to avoid these. We cannot remake prints due to these minor imperfections.
