Creating boudoir images is truly a special experience for my clients and myself. Moreover, witnessing my clients’ reactions is all the more rewarding as they see themselves in a completely different light, setting, and comfort zone. The creative process doesn’t end at the photo shoot. The desired result is client satisfaction, and high-quality products play an enormous part in that process.

Artists have been using metal for centuries to create their masterpieces. Similarly, the medium is still used today and has been refined in modern production in the form of Metal Prints and has become more popular in recent years. Printing on Metal is beneficial and perfect for giving my work a Modern appearance. 

Benefits to Printing on Metal


 Metal Prints are Durable

As with prints, we all know they have potential to  tear and rip easily, and unless the print is covered in a frame to protect it, the photograph loses its luster quickly from wear and tear and the handling of the prints. Metal Prints are highly durable and have a scratch-resistant surface that is waterproof and weatherproof. Metals can still get dented, however—therefore, proper care is still necessary. Metals provide longevity that is unmatched, and can last many generations with minimal changes in appearance.

 Easy to Clean

Unlike Photo Prints or Canvases, you can clean the Metal Prints simply. Since the aluminum surface is coated, the prints can easily be wiped clean with a damp or dry cloth, removing possible stains or blemishes without harming the color or surface of the Metal Print. Water will damage Photo Prints and Canvases, and these kinds of misfortunes are devastating to consumers who lose important photos or artwork to floods and natural disasters. Metals are waterproof and in the unlikely event that your Metal Print gets wet, it will not damage the color or the print surface. Wipe the water promptly, and your metal print is as good as new.

 Vibrant colors and Details

Metal Prints have exceptional detail and are printed at 250 DPI.  It not only has a life-like appearance, but the colors are amazing and always exceeds my clients' expectations.  My images always brightly pop with the perfect level of saturation and it brings out really deep contrasts in my work. It's the perfect print surface to give my photography a Modern look.

CG Pro Prints Premium Quality

Metals are printed on high definition, aluminum sheets (0.1" thickness) with a white base. The ink is directly transferred to the metal using sublimation printing, which gives the photographs a refined, rich, and vibrant appearance. The aluminum is coated with a glossy, protective finish and is water/scratch resistant. The prints have rounded corners for protection, therefore no sharp edges. The back of every Metal Print includes a pre-installed inset white float frame or wood block with notches (depending on size) from which the picture is hung, perfect for a nail, picture hook, etc., and provides a 1/2 inch "floating" appearance when hung on a wall. The inset float frame also provides a sturdy backing, so your metal won’t warp over time—something I have personally dealt with when ordering from other vendors. I am highly impressed with CG Pro Prints quality and process, and the metal prints have made a fabulous addition to my fine art product options.
