“I travel all over the place to get the images I need to make a living. And it is of paramount importance that those hard to get images are reproduced in the same painstaking way they were shot. That is not always an easy call. I have knocked back many prints which fell short of my expectations. But recently, I experienced Print2Metal for the first time after many years of photojounalism. It is everything they said it would be. First class service & first class quality. I can’t fault the work or the mounting presentation. If my experience is anything to go by, then use these guys – I know you won’t be disappointed.”

Wow it is about time we have not only a product done here in Australia but also something so unique and different. Something I can sell that will stand out from the rest. I had my first print done for my new showroom, when i received this in the mail so promptly after my order i was BLOWN away. LOVE IT!!!

The sharpness, the colours are just amazing. The service was just as good from start to finish. I can’t wait now to start selling such a Funky product to my valued customers and i am positive they will love it just as much as me.

Well done to the team at Print 2 Metal,

Thank you

The work of Cara-Ann is unique in the way she resonates sound through the metal print to turn the whole print into the speaker. She’s really excited to be part of this exhibition alongside some really incredible historic and contemporary Australian artists!

Cara-Anne has also printed on metal in the finalist exhibition for the Fleurieu Art Prize – Youth Scholarship.

Exhibition dates: 4 Nov – 5 Dec 2011 and the youth scholarship exhibition is at the Wirra Wirra Winery, McLaren Vale SA. The titles of her works for that prize are: Townsville: over the Ross Creek and Victoria Park: reconstruction.

Good Luck Cara-Ann

Who are the people behind Print2Metal?

High definition,imaging on aluminium,images on aluminiumYou may be wondering about the people who so passionately work behind the name Print2Metal.

Frank Hoekstra has made photography his life. For the past 20 years up until March of this year, Frank ran Photo Production House, his own photo lab on High Street, Prahran. 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. A graduate of NMIT, seasoned photographic printer, wedding and portrait photographer, photoshop hot shot and owner of Chloe, the jack russell who features regularly on our sample prints.

Scott has photographic chemistry flowing through his veins. As Head Honcho of production in labs both in Australia and the UK Scott brings 23 years of printing experience to the team. 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.
