Prefer a matte look? Go for a photo on aluminium

Our aluminium prints are a good choice when you like a matte finish and timeless look. The 3 mm thick plates offer a sleek appearance to your artwork and are very easy to hang since they’re so light. You can choose to have your photo printed on white or brushed aluminium. Either way, the white colours won’t be printed. For a photo on brushed aluminium the texture will thus remain visible, which will make your picture look slightly darker. Note how the unique silver effect keeps changing depending on the angle you look from. White aluminium on the other hand, has a very natural and realistic look which works particularly well for portraits or landscapes. The highlighted details and white top layer will make the colours pop. Whichever option you choose, with a photo on aluminium you’re guaranteed to bring a unique atmosphere into your interior.

Do you like a little gloss? Print your photo on plexiglas

A photo on plexiglas has a glossy finish that fits exceptionally well into a modern interior. The material is slightly heavier than aluminium, but nevertheless easy to install with the optional aluminium frame. Printed behind plexiglass, your photo will have an incredible depth effect. To top it off, we add an extra white layer to make the colours and details shine even brighter. The realistic features draw you into the picture. Plexiglas is therefore particularly recommended for bright pictures or high contrast images. Our selection artistic photos of women on acrylic is a good example to illustrate our point. Note how the aluminium texture highlights the contrast between the golden details and dark background. Want to get your own plexiglas artwork?
