Trying to make it in the world of art & photography can be tough. Everyone wants to create the best pieces, get the most exposure, and make lots of money. There’s loads of competition out there, and things are getting even harder in modern times. Photography equipment is getting cheaper and cheaper. This means that more and more people are trying to earn a living this way. It’s becoming more important than ever to break the mold and do something different. To make it in this industry, you need to create unique photos that look like real pieces of art.

That’s where metal prints come into play. They’re an exceptional way to take your photos to the next level. With a metal print, your pieces will look like they’re from the future. If you hang them in your gallery, you can bet people will be in awe. How do they work? Here at Baboo Digital, we use an advanced process. It’s a process through which an image in infused into a substrate. First things first, your image will be printed onto transfer paper. Then, it’s stuck to a coated aluminum sheet. Now, this is where things get a little interesting and sciencey! When stuck together, the two sheets are put into a heat press. The dyes from the transfer paper turn into gas, which is then pressed into the surface of the metal. As the metal cools down, the dyes turn back to their solid state, infusing in the aluminum. If that’s not a cool way to print your photos, then I don’t know what is!

The benefit of all this is that you end up with something remarkable. Instead of having a typical canvas or photo print, you’ve got a metal one. They look utterly sublime, and will turn heads wherever they’re placed. The prints are in full high-definition, which brings out all the colors and details. It can turn any photo into a masterpiece. Plus, our metal prints come with a small brace on the back. As such, it gives them a super cool float effect. It’s simply a must for all modern art galleries! In addition to the aesthetic benefits, you also get a few other things as well. For instance, all of these prints will last a lot longer that traditional surfaces. You’re looking at a life cycle of up to 200 years when stored away from light. And, even if you keep them exposed to light, they won’t fade for around 100 years! Our metal prints are also fire and scratch-resistant, meaning you don’t have to worry about damages occurring.

If you want to take your photos to the next level, then metal printing is the way forward. It will put you ahead of the times, and make your artwork stand out. And, don’t think that metal prints are only for professionals. If you’re a hobbyist that wants to turn a nice photo into something special, then you can. Metal printing is a fantastic way of creating futuristic artwork that will last for ages.
