Metal Print and its types part 2
These are just two of the forms used for printing, and they are also used to produce metal prints. Metal prints are simply art prints on a metal surface. They often come out as high-definition and shiny. This has made metal prints a popular favorite. The metal mostly used for metal prints is aluminum, a shiny metal that is corrosion resistant. Metal prints last longer, they are very vibrant and life-like, they are durable, and they have a modern seamless look which is owed to the fact that they do not have frames. Now that we have discussed metal print and its qualities we will move on to the types of metal print.
- Single metal prints – This is when the image is infused into the metal and not just onto it.
- Framed metal prints – Although we previously stated that metal prints don’t need frames, some people prefer them with frames, but unlike other mediums such as paper, metal prints don’t need glass covering or protection. These prints are framed not out of the necessity but choice.
- Double float metal prints – Double float metal prints are meant to create a 3D effect, and this is achieved by making a larger print and placing a smaller version of the print, which will blend into the edges of the larger print, directly onto the surface.
- Curved Metal Prints – As the name suggests these are curved prints that aren’t conventionally flat, they can be curved inward or outward depending on your desires.
Metal prints can have creative, cut up edges. They can also be acrylic or even divided into splits which will come together to form one single image. The versatility of metal prints affords you the opportunity to get a print that is not only creative in nature but also extremely durable. With proper care, it could be in the family for years.
