Metal Prints

Unlike Acrylic Prints, you can display metal prints outside in the harshest weather conditions. End Result? Sophistication and Elegance!

For a contemporary style, photographs on aluminum is ideal. Unlike Acrylic Prints, the outcome is a matte versus the shiny gloss, allowing for stark contours and rich colours. However, if you enjoy the glossy look, we offer a special varnish to make that happen! We offer two specific options.

Brush Metal – The “brushed pattern”. Areas of your photos left white will show as brushed.

Other colours will show with a brushed undertone. The matte look.
White Metal – For vivid colors and a high contrast ratio.

Both are printed on Dibond which is polyethylene in the middle and aluminum panels on the outside. It creates a durable, rigid, 3/16 inch substrate that transforms your digital photos. Unlike Acrylic Prints, you can display metal prints outside in the harshest weather conditions. End Result? Sophistication and Elegance! We can print custom sizes up to 60 by 120 inches.

Testimonials

Our Customers love us. Check out some what some of them had to say about BigAcrylic.

  • “I found bigacrylic.com while searching for a solution to plain framing of artwork for a newly renovated building. In our lobby where there are tons of windows and lighting, I was looking for something with very high quality printing, but without glare. Bigacrylic offers prints on white metal, which was perfect. The prints are beautiful and vibrant. The pieces all came extremely well packaged and shipping was fast. Not only are the prints beautiful, but they are also ready to hang, plus there were a lot of great hanging options available.”

  • “Great work turning our photos into fantastic wall photo art ….acrylic and metal both look fabulous.”

  • “The product quality and beauty was exceeded only by the customer service that I received from Big Acrylic – and this is saying something: my metal print (sunrise comprised of color shades including reds, oranges, yellows, blues, grays, and black) was absolutely stunning. I unequivocally recommend Big Acrylic.”

  • “We ordered 4 large acrylic photos, one extra large metal and one canvas. They were all great quality and look AMAZING! We had some mistakes on our first order and I spoke with Mark and he replaced the prints at no extra charge. The customer service was great. If you are looking for quality products and good service…look no further!”

  • “The images came back beyond my expectations. What really blew me away was the photograph I had mounted on metal. It is now this unique piece of art that looks like a million bucks but was originally a $10 poster. I get so many compliments on it. I had 3 pieces done by big acrylic and I could not be happier. Totally recommend this service!”
    Andrea

  • “We ordered a large custom print on two brushed metal panels for one of our offices. When the print arrived, it was under shiny acrylic instead of on the brushed metal. While it looked good, it was not what we had ordered. Because of where we needed to hang it, the acrylic caused a bad glare on the image and you couldn’t see it very well. I called Mark at Big Acrylic and let him know. He immediately took responsibility for the order not being on brushed metal and gave us a choice of how to resolve the issue. We chose to have it reprinted on the brushed metal. They took care of everything. Our new print arrived today and I could not be happier! It is beautiful and exactly what we had wanted. Thank you Mark! I can highly recommend Big Acrylic and will certainly order from them again in the future when we need additional artwork.”

  • “I have used Big Acrylic three time now – the quality of the acrylic and metal photos I have gotten are unbelievable. The way they can take a relatively small photo file and blow it up to a big beautiful crystal clear photo is amazing. The quality of the image is so impressive and it is all part of the service – no extra costs. I highly recommend Big Acrylic – their response time to inquiries is lightning fast. Production time and delivery was very fast – and packaging is safe and secure. I’ve not had a quality issue or defective part. We use to use the Discount Canvas companies – Big Acrylic is much, much better. “

Metal Prints
What You Need to Know

What material is used in the metal prints?

Our metal prints are printed on dibond. Dibond is an aluminum composite material (ACM) made of two thin aluminium sheets with a solid polyethylene core. 

What are the advantages of printing on metal?

Metal prints don’t cast a reflection, and therefore are not shiny like our acrylic prints.

How do you print on metal?

We print onto the front of the metal using a special digital printer.

Where can I display metal prints?

Homes, offices, hospitals, institutions, trade shows, airports, hotels. Anywhere there is wall space, really!

Can you create custom sizes?

Yes, we can create custom sizes – just email us directly or through our consultation section.

What’s the largest size you can produce?

We can produce metal prints up to 60” x 96”.

Are there different digital metal print surfaces?

We offer both white metal and brushed metal.

What are the advantages of both?

White metal offers amazing color contrast. Brushed metal has a brushed pattern on it. With brushed metal, you can leave areas of your photos white and see the brushed pattern untouched.

Is there a way to make both styles glossy?

Yes. If you like the properties of metal, but desire a shiny finish, we can add varnish. 

Can you produce custom shapes?

Yes! Send us your ideas.

Can you create metal prints in multiple panels?

We can cut an image into panels. You can view samples of this style in the Customer Creation section of our website. Just send us your photo for a free consultation. 

What display options do you offer?

We offer the float, standoff and metal box option.

What’s the most popular display option?

The float off the wall option is the most popular option for our metal prints.

Will the color fade over time?

Our UV ink and digital printing method allow your acrylic print to look amazing for many years, even when exposed to direct sunlight.

Can I display my metal print outdoors?

Yes! Our metal prints can withstand even the harshest weather conditions.

Are metal prints scratchproof?

They are scratch-resistant, but not scratchproof. For example, if you take a key to a metal print, it will scratch.

How do I know how to select the best size for my image when ordering my metal print?

Easy. After you download your image on our website, you can use our crop tool to crop to your desired size.

How do I know the color of my Metal will match the image I see on my monitor?

Every printer and monitor see an image differently. In most cases, the color printed will be accurate and exceed your expectations.  If you want an exact color match you need to send us a physical copy to match with, however 95% of our customers do not take this route.

How do I find an image to use for my metal print?

There are many sites that offer free images. You can find free images on Pixabay and Unsplash. There are also many sites where you can purchase images for a reasonable price. Shutterstock is a paying site which is user friendly. When you find an image you like, send us a message through our consultation section with the image number.

What type of file should I send to create my metal?

You can use JPEG, TIF, PDF and EPS files. If the downloader on our site is slow because of the file size, you can send your image through  https://bigacrylic.wetransfer.com/

What happens if my metal print arrives broken?

We package the Metal beyond expectations so that it arrives without damage. In the event that damage does occur during shipping, just email us a photo of the breakage and we will redo your order.
