Photo print on metal: Print on a metallic aluminum composite panel with a brushed aluminum surface, called "butler finished":

We print your image with brilliantly colored and waterproof inks and transfer it to a metallic aluminum composite panel with a brushed aluminum surface, called "butler-finished".

Metallic effect: The entire motif gets a striking metallic shine and in the bright or white areas of the image, the brushed metal surface of the background plate shines through. This gives your photo a mysterious metallic look, which looks very noble and unusual due to the silver tone. Black and white shots also benefit from this unique effect.

Robust and glossy or matt and almost opaque:

You have the choice between the transparent version, in which the colors of the metal image appear uniformly even and metallic and the image surface retains a homogeneous gloss level, or direct printing on the metal plate with opaque colors (UV printing). Both variants are suitable for damp rooms and are easy to clean.

How long does it take to make my picture?

In our product or category descriptions, you will find the average production times or the exact printing dates and deadlines for data submission.

I am unsure if the size of my image is sufficient. What can I do?

We check your data for the appropriate resolution for the desired size and whether the image proportions fit. If there are any problems or ambiguities, we will contact you.

What is the exact ordering process?

You either order your image in our online store or send us the file via our individual order with the appropriate info and your wishes noted.

For both order options, after we have successfully reviewed your data, you will receive an e-mail containing our invoice with the payment terms and informing you of the expected completion or shipping date.

If you have paid our invoice in advance, you can come to pick up your print at any time during our business hours from the completion date. Payment on site is possible by German EC card or cash. For staff reasons, however, we are happy if you have already paid in advance. This is possible by bank transfer or Paypal.

If your data is not readily printable, we will contact you in advance to inquire.

Can I pick up my print in person?

You can come to our retail store in Berlin-Friedrichshain for collection at any time from the notified completion date during our business hours from Monday to Friday from 10 am to 5:30 pm. Since we currently do not have the store open directly due to staffing reasons, then please just knock on our door.

How much does it cost to have a photo printed?

Prices for printing a photo start at 30 x 20 cm with 4,02 EUR. The printing price always depends on the chosen material and the size of the image. The resolution of your photo has an influence on which sizes are still well printable.

What format to print photos?

The aspect ratio of the photo should match the aspect ratio of the format to be printed. Many cameras take photos in the aspect ratio of 3:2 or 4:3. This results, for example, in a photo in the format 30 x 20 cm or with the 4:3 aspect ratio the format 40 x 30 cm. Optimal photo file FORMATS are jpg files, as these are not too large due to their compression and are therefore easy to send. But also png and tif are possible.

How can I print pictures from my cell phone?

You can email pictures from your smartphone directly to us on demand and have them printed on high-quality photo paper. Or you can upload your photos to be printed via our webshop during the order process.

Creative photos as metal picture on alu dibond with metallic effect

Not everyone has this yet! We print your image or photo in high resolution with brilliant color and waterproof inks and transfer it to a metallic aluminum composite panel with a brushed aluminum surface, called "butler-finished" brushed.

All the non-covering colors get an interesting metallic sheen. In the unprinted areas in the image (everything that is white in the image), but also in the bright areas, the brushed metal surface of the background plate shines through. This gives your photo a mysterious metallic look that looks very classy and unusual. The metallic effect comes across especially well when there are many white and light areas in the image. Black and white shots also benefit from the metallic look.

Bright colors in a metallic look - how does it work?

Our metal image plate is an original Dibond aluminum composite plate with brushed surface (so-called butler finished) in 3 mm thickness. We print a transparent print carrier and laminate it invisibly onto the metal plate. Since the silvery metal surface can be seen or shines through on the less printed and unprinted areas of the image, the prints get their mysterious metallic look.

In contrast to direct plate printing, which is printed with opaque UV-curing matt inks, the colors of our classic metal image are not raised and matt, but completely smooth, glossy and transparent and the image surface has a very homogeneous gloss level.

Here a small film to view the metal image.
