How to be a professional photographer

Print2Metal Australia Metal prints aluminium

I’d always known that the print would come out looking good, but when I received it, it BLEW me away. It’s almost as if the metal print adds another dimension to the photo. It makes me look like a better photographer than what I am. Thank you so much guys and thank you for printing it surprisingly quick! I think it was ready within a week.

Thank you so much.

“I first came across Print2metal a year ago when I went to develop some standard prints and noticed a stunning image of escalators on display. Due to the high quality finish of the Brushed aluminium, it really “popped” and gave me great inspiration to have one of my HDR images printed on metal.

The customer experience was great from the on-set, their web self service channels are easy to navigate and uploading my image was really quick and easy. A few clicks later, I received a call to say my file was received and work had commenced. I picked up the print a few days later and the image was gorgeous, colours popped, highlights and mid-tones shone through and although my image was not standard sized, Print2metal were extremely accommodating with a custom size.

When I brought the print home, I noticed the aluminium had some dents, which may have occurred during transit from print2metal workshops to collection point. I called to inform them of slight damage citing transit or manufacture problems and they were fantastic about it. Someone came to my house, picked up the print and replaced it for free. Absolutely fantastic customer service and quality prints. I can’t recommend them enough!”

‘Snow solitude’ Scott Leggo

photo online,print pictures online,ordering photos online,digital photos prints,printing pictures online-print, pictures online-online printingShrouded in fog, this snow gum withstands the harsh winter conditions as one the highest snow gums in Victoria. Surviving on the heights of Mt Hotham, it has somehow escaped the ravages of bushfires in the area in recent years. With the surrounding fog, the gum stands alone as testament to its survival against the harsh alpine conditions it has to withstand during the cold winter months while covered in snow and ice.

Revolutionary new ways to print and share your photos!

Print2Metal Australia Metal prints aluminium

Print 2 Metal was just one of the many exhibitors showing off incredible new ways to create and share photo prints.

“This year’s expo boasts brilliant new services that allow photographers to have their photos printed onto metal and more! It’s nigh impossible to do the beauty of these prints justice over the internet. The magnificence of this cutting edge style of artistic expression reaches deep into the creative soul of the viewer, gently tugging at the artist within to come out and play.”

Thank you kindly to idigitaldarwin for the image and lyrics!

PMA 2011 Media Release

Print2Metal debuts exciting new printed metal products.

The company who brought the latest and most revolutionary printing technology to Australia in 2010 will again be exhibiting at the upcoming PMA Australia Imaging & Entertainment Expo.

Print2Metal, an online business that prints images directly into, not onto specially treated metal, was among the 10 ‘Hot Pick’ winners at last year’s show and are hoping to impress visitors again in 2011.

Printer and owner of Print2Metal, Mr Frank Hoekstra, said after a busy 12 months he was looking forward to exhibiting again at this year’s expo.

“During the 2010 show we were thrilled with all the interest in Print2Metal in Melbourne and were really honoured to be chosen as one of the show’s ‘Hot Picks’,” he said.

“It’s been a really exciting and busy time since launching Print2Metal last year.

“We were featured on Better Homes & Gardens and nominated as one of only three finalists in the highly coveted 2011 ‘designEX’ New Product Award for Accessories.

“We’ve had lots of interest and suggestions from customers and industry professionals, which have guided us in a direction we may not have previously considered.

“We’re excited to announce that our Print2Metal customers will now be able to display their artwork outside, something we have not been able to recommend until now.

“Thanks to a new range of new high-end finishes that to the eye cannot be seen, our metal prints will now be UV stable in direct sunlight for a minimum of 10 years, which will allow photographers to extend the use of their images to outdoor, display and retail settings,” he said.

Mr Hoekstra said curved and bent images would also be a feature of this year’s display.

“For this year’s show we have looked at the unique features of our metal product and picked up on its ability to bend,” he said.

“Hanging options always help to differentiate an image as well so the Print2Metal team have introduced a number of new ‘looks’ for the expo.”

Mr Hoekstra also said Print2Metal were working hard to add printed kitchen backsplashes to its exciting range of products.

“Once we have the necessary safety approvals, this is definitely an opportunity for photographers to consider,” he said.

The 2011 PMA Australia Imaging & Entertainment Expo will be held at the at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour from June 24-26.
