How We Print on Aluminum

Printing onto aluminum is a new, cutting edge, way to reproduce an image.

The image is first printed onto a transfer paper and then is adhered to pretreated aluminum.

The aluminum and transfer paper are placed into a custom heat press, which is heated to approximately 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

While being subjected to extreme heat and pressure, the dyes from the transfer paper turn into a gas, are pressed into the surface of the metal, and then solidify into the treated aluminum.

As the dyes cool they are permanently infused beneath the surface of the metal.  This means that the ink can never be removed or washed out.  The result is an extremely durable surface that is resistant to scratching, stains, moisture, and UV fade.
