ChromaLuxe Aluminum: Graphic & Modern

ChromaLuxe metal prints look bold, bright and distinctively modern. Featuring photography from Getty Images’ global network of contributors, this contemporary collection of landscapes, abstract imagery, still lifes and more employ cutting-edge ChromaLuxe technology using an intricate process called dye sublimation. Lightweight yet durable and made with recycled materials for eco-friendly sourcing, ChromaLuxe prints are fade-, moisture-, stain- and scratch-resistant, with exceptional visible detailing and vibrant color resolution that won’t yellow with age. Each high-definition print is float-mounted in vertical grain frames of light American oak, for an unmatched, ultra-modern look.

 

Dye Sublimation: The Inside Scoop

ChromaLuxe pieces look unquestionably cool, but how exactly are they made? Dye sublimation is a specialized printing technique, involving use of a transfer paper on which an image is directly printed. For ChromaLuxe prints, that transfer paper gets aligned with high-definition metal, then placed within a high-temperature heat press for roughly three minutes. A combination of heat and pressure infuses ink into metal, netting beautifully vibrant, saturated colors. The entirety of this dye sublimation process is done in-house at Four Hands Art Studio, in the largest press made, which allows for generously sized prints up to 94x48”.
