Good Morning! Today I have a small product review for you of the "Metals" from a great lab here in Dallas called FullColor.
I've been intrigued with these since the moment I saw them on FullColor's website. I just needed the right photo to try them with. FullColor offers a fantastic samples kit for $24.95. Select one photo, and you will get it printed in all four of the available finishes: High Gloss Vibrant, Matte Vibrant, High Gloss Brushed, and Matte Brushed. I have a gallery install going up now that I wanted to use the metals for one of the images, and I was surprised to find that the finish I loved for the image was not the one I originally would have selected without having seen the samples kit.
FullColor does a great job of describing these metals on their own website but here is my insight...
Vibrant Metals -
Printed on a white background, the vibrant metal options give you a true photograph on metal backing feel. Whites are WHITE, and colors true. Great for a portrait or photo that you want no differentiation in color or feel. Colors will really POP with the vibrant metals. Available in both high gloss and matte. Select the flavor that suits your mood.
Brushed Metals -
The brushed metals are the ultimate selection for a vintage feel or image where you want metals to look like metal. Think cars, sculpture, signs! Colors are still stunning, but the feeling of them image is entirely different. These are also offered in high gloss and matte finishes. Great for man cave and garage art!
It is hard to translate through an image just how amazing even stunning these metals are. Smaller sizes are going to have a good stiffness to them that makes them great for easel style display. While the large prints such a a 24x36 will have a small bit of flex. FullColor offers two styles of mounts for the backs of the metal images, a standard, and a deep mount. The deep mount will allow the image to stand further off your wall.
FullColor offers many great products in their line. Whether it is a print, metal, canvas, or holiday card, they will make sure that you receive a product you will be proud to sell your customer. They never fail to impress me with their customer service, and attention to detail. A trait that many companies could stand to learn.
