Merrillville, IN (PRWEB) July 23, 2014
Metal Photos Direct, a unique service offering customers the option to have their favorite photos printed on metal for beautiful, lasting and creative wall displays, has added a new piece of equipment to allow production of metal wall art of virtually any size or shape.
The company’s new Computer Numerical Control (CNC) router provides unlimited shape and size options, opening up a world of possibilities for customers looking for personal and dramatic art to fill particular spaces within their homes or offices.
Metal Photos Direct has helped customers preserve their memories by creating metal wall photos, desktop prints, floating metal prints and metal ornaments in a variety of shapes and sizes. The effect of printing photos onto metal adds both durability and sheen that traditional photo papers can’t match.
Whether a cherished family photo, a wonderful landscape, or even scanned items such as a child’s artwork, restaurant menu, old letters and other heirlooms, the finished product is a high quality piece of art that makes a statement. In addition to traditional square and rectangle prints, unique edges and multi-panel designs add to the custom look of the finished product. However, until the addition of the new equipment, customers were limited to a selection of standard sizes and templates.
“With the addition of the CNC router, we have been able to offer even more precise edging on the prints,” notes Tim O’Neill, Vice President of Business Development for Metal Photos Direct. “Most importantly, we are now able to accommodate odd size requirements to really help clients make a statement in their homes or businesses. Clients with special size requests can give us a call to discuss their particular needs.”
The process to create a metal photo is quite simple: customers upload their high resolution image on the MetalPhotosDirect.com website, and choose the desired size, shape, and edge. Metal Photos Direct uses special dyes to print images onto transfer paper, then infuses the dyes into a polymer coating, which is pressed onto metal via heat and pressure.
“We’ve had customers create all kinds of unique projects,” explains O’Neill. “A high-quality scan of just about anything can be turned into wall art. We can also create metal photos from most of today’s smart phones as the cameras are high enough in resolution to produce terrific results.”
Black-and-white, sepia and color prints can be produced with either glossy or matte finishes. There are plenty of tips for printing photographs and other items on metal, and getting the best results for the artwork or wall in question, on the company’s website.
“We hope that as summer comes to a close and people review their fantastic vacation photos, they think about turning the best ones into a display for themselves, or think in advance of the holiday season to create a special gift for a loved one,” concludes O’Neill. “Metal photo prints also make terrific wedding gifts for brides and grooms, and family photos make wonderful anniversary gifts.”
