When it comes to printing, I use Fotoworks Pro for all my metal prints and Gorman Framing for all of my paper prints and framing. After years of trial and error with many other print shops, I have found that these two businesses use the highest quality machines and materials and their customer service is second to none. They are also both close to home. This is a huge advantage because it allows me to proof every print before and after the final product is ready for delivery.
We use the following Epson photographic paper for all of our prints.
Legacy Platine is a 100% cotton fibre paper with a white, smooth satin finish. This paper combines the look and feel of the revered silver halide F-surface with a true cotton base. It has an industry leading microporous inkjet receptive layer that produces deep, rich blacks (Dmax), expanded color gamut and gentle tonal gradations and will provide outstanding image permanence and durability.

We only use the highest quality aluminum sheets manufactured by Chromaluxe. The aluminum is 0.045 inches thick which makes it amazingly rigid and light.
You simply have to see it to believe it. Colors are infused directly onto the aluminum metal panels through a special process. The result is a metal print with a rich dazzling sheen, vibrant vivid colors, and life-like high definition detail that you can’t get from any other print.
They look more like a fine pieces of art than prints. The brushed aluminum edges add an elegant touch to the glimmering finish.
Unlike prints made with inks that are painted on the surface, metal prints are made by infusing your image directly on to the metal panels. They are incredibly resistant to abrasion. They are water proof and can even be cleaned with a glass cleaner.
Metal prints can displayed in a variety of different ways. We offer wall mounts and floating frames.
