High Gloss Metal Prints
Brilliant white high gloss surface for unsurpassed detail and vibrance. Insta‑Ken Metal Prints are uniquely durable prints with vibrant colors, brilliant luminescent images, and exceptional detail.
Metal Prints represent a new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. Because the image is infused into the surface and not on it, your images will take on an almost magical luminescence. The ultra-hard scratch-resistant surface is waterproof/weatherproof and can be cleaned easily – just avoid direct sunlight.
You’ve never seen a more brilliant and impressive print! Colors are vibrant and the luminescence is breathtaking. Detail and resolution are unsurpassed.
Metal Prints Endure the Test of Time! While photo papers have fantastic image stability, Xenon Light Stability Testing results show that the image stability of Metal Prints is 2 to 4 times the image stability of traditional silver based photo papers.
What type of lighting should be used to display Metal Prints?
For displaying Metal Prints, we recommend halogen, bright white incandescent, full-spectrum LED, or other bulbs with a high CRI (color rendering index). Indirect natural daylight also can work, but it must be indirect in order to prevent fading over time, and will also change the way the print appears throughout the day. Certain types of lighting, such as standard fluorescent bulbs, emit light that is partially absorbed or scattered by the Metal Print surface, and the green part of the spectrum reflects to the eye more than other colors. Changing the type of lighting will affect the way all prints appear, but Metal Prints are affected more so. This is called metameric failure. Using light bulbs with a CRI of 90 or higher will help you see consistent results, especially when comparing different types of prints.
How should Metal Prints be cleaned?
Non-ammonia glass cleaner, water, or isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol can be used without harming the print surface. We recommend using a clean, lint-free cloth to wipe off the print. No cleaners containing ammonia, abrasives, or corrosive chemicals should be used.
