Wall of pictures needs a home

Waterproof photo prints,luminous,depth,high-definition photographyAs an online business we’re often asked where our work can be viewed.

If you have or know of a business who has empty wall space we’d love to hear from you.

We’d like to display suitable images to compliment the space and let people know that our work is on display there. Preferably a central location, this is ideal for a café, gym, restaurant, florist.

Known for it’s personal service and extra attention to detail he brings about 40 years of photographic experience to Print2Metal. Originally from Amsterdam, Frank runs printing production and likes to think of himself as a “Dutch Master”.

Marie Cosgrave was also part owner of Photo Production House and the face at the front counter for the past 17 years. She claims never to have printed a photo in all that time but looked after everything else including Accounts, Marketing, HR, Customer Service, Merchandising, Window Cleaning and Cuppa Tea Making. She brings these fine tuned skills to Print2Metal and will usually be the one to take your calls.

Karen has also come across from the photo lab in Prahran where over the past 8 years she was regularly left to run the show.

Always up with the latest he’s also our geek who keeps the computers, printers, website and social networking, running so smoothly. A great sense of British humour but takes his soccer very seriously.

Wow Wow WOW!!!!!

Waterproof photo prints,luminous,depth,high-definition photography

“Wow Wow WOW!!!!! I am totally blown away with the quality and clarity of these stunning aluminium prints. My Island colours are captured beautifully using the gloss in particular the underwater scenes where you feel as if you are actually in the water with the fish. I’ve used brushed aluminium gloss with the art box frame for my black and white prints and this brings a whole new dimension to my photography artworks. The finish of the products are second to none.

I can’t thank Print2Metal enough for their fantastic customer service, advice on which product would best suit my image and delivery. I live on a very remote island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, so logistically it is a nightmare receiving anything in particular fine artworks undamaged. Both Frank and Marie have worked with me to alleviate many of the challenges I have had in past, going beyond what I would call normal customer service.

Unique gift for a wedding

I wanted to be able to give a personalised and unique gift to my cousin for his wedding. I was so pleased to be able to print a photo of a family holiday location in such a stunning and interesting way; so different to anything I had seen before. I will certainly be using P2M in the future, but for myself this time!

Metal vs Canvas for printing

pictures on metal-photo on metal-photographs on metal-pictures to canvas prints-metal photo“I was very pleased with the results of my first metal print. These prints share the advantages of canvas prints in that they are light in weight and you don’t have to worry about trying to match a frame and mattboard to either the image or the décor of a room but it’s their mirror-like finish that is the real winner, providing a more dynamic look than any canvas print could hope to achieve. It was an easy process to order and a fast one too – my completed work arrived 4 days after I ordered it.”
