Give Dad a great alternative to a framed photo; a stunning metal print in an acrylic base.

Why We Think Dads Will Like This

  • Metal prints turn a regular photo into an “HD Quality” reproduction.
  • So when Dad or Grandpa opens the package to find such a shimmering photo, you can be sure to expect a “wow” coming out of his mouth.
  • When purchased with the acrylic block “holder”, the photo can live anywhere in his workspace or living space — serving as a constant reminder of the love from his family. 
  • And when you select just the right photo — a traditional family photo or a fun “caught-in-the-moment” pose, your Father’s Day gift takes on a special meaning that no other gift can match. 

Details on the Product You’ll Be Getting

  • Metal prints are made with a process called dye sublimation, a printing method that infuses ink into the surface of an aluminum sheet using a combination of heat and pressure.
  • The infused aluminum image is available  with glossy metallic to matte finish options.
  • A clear, slotted, acrylic base holds your metal print upright, at just the right viewing angle.
  • There are a range of sizes, from rectangle to square, including classic 5×7 and 8x10s.
  • Another benefit to metal prints? They are incredibly durable. They’re scratch resistent and water resistent.
  • Our recommended merchant for this product is Printique, a recognized leader in photo prints and products (they are trusted by a huge number of wedding photographers who MUST present the very best reproduction to their clients).
