What is a Metal Print?

Although the choice of terminology may vary depending on branding, marketing, or regional preferences, in essence, the term Metal Print refers to a unique and durable, archival-quality print. They are typically made of coated aluminum or mild steel to create visually striking and durable pieces of art or decoration, offering a modern way of showcasing artwork or photographs.

Depending on the base material, they may have subtle differences; however, steel prints offer instant wall fixing with magnetic hanging solutions.

Metal prints, also known by various names like HD metal prints, display prints, metal posters, metal poster plates, display plates, Displates, and Displate (the largest brand of licensed character content and posters), and more.

The key benefits are as follows:

  1. Durability:
    Metal prints are built to last, just like our magnetic notice boards. Unlike paper or canvas prints, they are resistant to fading, tearing, and water damage, ensuring your cherished memories and artwork remain intact for years to come.

  2. Vivid Colors:
    The unique printing process enhances the vibrancy of colors, giving your images an eye-catching pop that's hard to achieve with other printing methods.

  3. Modern Aesthetic:
    The sleek and contemporary look of metal prints adds a touch of modernity to your decor. The satin anti-glare surface and sharp edges make them stand out in any room.

  4. Easy Maintenance:
    Metal prints are easy to clean, just like our magnetic boards. A simple wipe with a soft cloth will keep them looking as good as new.

Metal Prints vs.
Magnetic Boards:

While both use metal surfaces, we have evolved from crafting magnetic boards to offering metal prints that serve different purposes. Metal prints are primarily decorative, designed to showcase artwork, photographs, or custom designs in a visually stunning way. On the other hand, magnetic boards are functional tools for organization and information display and have a high gloss, dry-wipe suface.
