High Impact Dibond® Brushed Aluminum Metal Prints

Dibond sheet prints are a great option for a clean, modern look with exceptional durability. The sleek, Dibond material surface adds amazing depth to your fine art prints. Your print on brushed aluminum will take on a life of its own, with extremely vivid colors with rich contrasts.

Dibond Aluminum Metal Printing Substrate Cross Section DiagramWe print your photograph or artwork directly onto the smooth, brushed metal surface with great detail. Artisan uses the latest in UV printing technology. No paper or lamination is used in this process – our UV cured ink does all the work!

Any areas of your image that are a true white will reveal the raw, brushed aluminum metal surface.
This presentation is particularly striking for images containing metallic surfaces – it’s almost 3D!

This metallic medium works well for numerous printing applications. Dibond is 1/8″ thick, very stable, and extremely durable. It is lightweight but strong, and provides high resistance to weathering and corrosion. In fact, many modern buildings and architectural accents use this material. Dibond is a trade name for two thin sheets of aluminum (0.3mm) enclosing a polyethylene core. With its high stability and rigidity, this product makes an excellent base to print your work of art.

“Art displayed on Dibond metal is stunning. Big shout out to my innovative print partner ArtisanHD for their superior color, material and customer service.”

What exactly are Dibond sheets? Is it printable metal?

The Dibond material is a composite product combining a precision milled and textured aluminum facing with an 1/8? PVC core. It has a second layer of enameled paint applied to the aluminum as a finishing.

Why are Dibond prints recommended? 

Put simply, brushed aluminum Dibond printing is exceedingly versatile as compared to other fine art printing options and is one of our “go-to” solutions.

How is Dibond printing different from using metallic photo paper?

Unlike printing on a metallic photo paper, which is typically used for monochromatic photos or bright and vibrant pictures, Dibond printing is done directly onto the brushed aluminum substrate and gives pictures a distinct metallic look to them.

What is the best way to remove fingerprints from my brushed metal Dibond print?2022-08-22T07:23:06-07:00

The brushed aluminum finish of Dibond Brushed Metal Prints brings a unique metallic texture to your art pieces. While you may worry about damaging your artwork while cleaning it, our Dibond metallic prints offer unsurpassed durability, with high resistance to weathering and corrosion plus UV-cured ink for extra protection. 

While these prints are very durable, it’s best to use a microfiber cloth when cleaning them to avoid scratching the surface. You can clean your Dibond metallic prints with any mild cleaning product or soapy water.  

Important note: Avoid ammonia or alcohol-based cleaners, as these can damage the surface of your prints. 

To clean your metallic prints, simply dab your microfiber cloth in your soapy water or spray a mild cleaning solution directly onto the print. Use the cloth to remove any dirt or fingerprints, working slowly in a circular motion from the center outwards. 

With a few simple steps and some gentle care, your prints will look brand new again!

Custom Dibond Printing Services

Dibond Printing

With the Dibond printing process, we print your image directly onto the surface of the metal using high-resolution flatbed inkjet printers. The metallic effect shows throughout the image; our UV-cured inks are not 100% opaque, which allows the grain and luster of the brushed aluminum Dibond surface to shine through. The lighter the color, the more grain is visible. Once we reach a pure white, you will see the brushed silver surface of the Dibond aluminum panel shine through, giving the print unique highlights and texture. Don’t be afraid to give your creation some attitude – use Dibond printing to take it to the next level. But maybe reconsider that portrait print of Grandma smiling. She’ll end up with silver teeth, and nobody wants that!

Dibond Printing vs. Metallic Paper

On the other hand, Kodak Metallic HD Photo Paper gives your images an overall pearlescent metallic look, perfect for monochrome photography or bright, colorful images where a bit of extra sparkle and pop is desired. Since this is one of our true photographic processes, you may achieve higher definition and detail over Dibond, but Kodak Metallic HD Photo Paper does not feature any metal grain. White will still be close to white, leaning towards a very light silver tone.

    Dynamic duo - DiBond and Mike

    Julie Quarry

    I am a photographer in AZ and I have several of my images in my home. Because I have high ceilings I was looking to exhibit something large between my book cases and ceiling–but didn’t want my living room to look like a gallery of my images. I contacted Mike from ArisanHD to brainstorm on some ideas. He introduced me to DiBond to give my Wild Tonto National Park Horses a different look and because of the natural light that comes in from a large slider, Mike assured me we would see the light reflect and play off of the piece. So in PhotoShop I altered the Wild Horses to sepia and added a rustic boarder and ordered a 48″ X 72″ DiBond print with Black anodized stand-offs, a wonderful way to hang the image so it is set off from the wall giving a wonderful look (Mike hand held me through this process as well). Mike’s response time, customer service, attention to my vision and hand holding were A+.
    Thank you Mike and ArtisanHD for catering to the one-offs. I will certainly be back!

    Dibond Exceeds Expectations

    Bill K.

    I’m an aerial photographer/videographer and have always wanted to get a print of my work to display at home. After seeing a print that a good friend of mine ordered from Artisan HD, I decided to order a dibond metallic print. I was somewhat nervous to invest money into a product I’ve never seen in person, but when the package arrived and was opened, I was stunned! What vibrant color. The metallic compliments the print perfectly, making the sunset seemingly shimmer, and the lights glow. I already have friends wanting prints and I will refer them to Artisan HD. Thank you!

    One Stop Print Shop

    Toby T.

    Artisan’s on-the-spot hospitality wowed me the moment I walked in the door. “Thank you” to photographer Bob Grebe for referring me. Gretchen King at the front desk assisted me with open arms the minute I walked in. She didn’t know me from Adam but she dropped everything to assist me; She immediately got the ball rolling on my small-format single print. I’m an independent fine artist who was looking for a high-end, high-quality, all-inclusive, one-stop print shop who prides themselves on paying as much attention to detail as I do.

    I believe the difference between good and great is detail and ArtisanHD excels at detail! Finding a print shop that pays close attention to detail was high on my list, so too, was finding one that happily accommodates independent artists who need low-volume and/or single prints done. Shops that boast a roster of clients as impressive as Artisan’s often act snobbish toward so called insignificant small-format low-volume artists like me. Not Artisan! They treated me with the same respect they give their high-profile, high-volume clients. Artisan supports the average Joe. They’re an equal opportunity production and print shop.

    They made this artist feel welcome and valued and didn’t price gouge me on individual prints. Artisan’s rates for single prints are very reasonable and their frequent print sales at 20 to 30 percent off sweeten the pot. Like I said, my positive impression started at the front desk and transformed into a lasting positive impression! Account Manager Mike Goldner is great! His knowledge and experience stands alone, but his genuine, easy going, approachable, down-to-earth manner won me over. His lightening-fast response to my request for a quote sealed the deal. I immediately had a 30 x 40″ portrait printed as a Gicleé on canvas jewel-mounted and two Dibonds approx. 40 x 53″ printed a few weeks later. My clients and I were thrilled with the result! I value and trust Mike’s input and expertise. He recently suggested I print one of my contemporary pieces on Kodak Metallic Photo Paper. I look forward to it.

    Thank you ArtisanHD and your team for supporting the lil guy and making us feel welcome and worth your time. You’re exactly what this fine artist who’s new to fine-art sales was looking for! Thank you Gretchen K., Mike G., Wayne G. and Peter C. who all had a hand in prepping and printing my art and thrilling my clients!

    Meets Hard Deadlines!

    Virginia P.

    Working with Mike at Artisan Colour has offered me a big break through in my photographic art. I am a small fish in their big pond but they have always treated me as if I was a million dollar account. The time and cooperation they have afforded me has allowed me to create a new art form with big horizons for the future. They work hard to meet time driven deadlines I sometimes present and Mike is a great source of enthusiasm and encouragement for me. Thanks to him and everyone who is involved in my projects.

ArtisanHD Customer Reviews

As the owner of a small startup company, I looked around The Valley and online for professional high quality printed products. Other solutions always seemed to come with a tradeoff: poor customer service, product size constraints, high pricing and volume, or even bad finish quality. Working with Mike and his team I was able to produce the high quality unique products at competitive prices that I was looking for without compromise. Their knowledgeable customer service was phenomenal! We were even able to find solutions to some of the more complex printing and finishing requirements I needed. I’ll definitely be working with them again on future projects!
I recently sold one of my Digital Art pieces and the team at ArtisanHD have the complete package really sorted out! They are a friendly, client orientated and totally professional team who happen to produce spectacular prints as well! Thanks guys for keeping everyone very happy!

Fantastic staff, fantastic facilities, second to none product quality output. I feel like you're my secret weapon.
Beautiful print work and customer service of the highest order – you'll be so thrilled with how well you're treated, and how they'll go the extra mile to make sure you're happy and satisfied with the final result.
ArtisanHD Online Photo Printing Review – Denise S.Denise S.
It's rare I find a company today where the customer service, quality and pricing meet most every need I'm looking for. It's even rarer to find those companies where the staff are not only willing to meet those expectations, but surpass them. In a very stressful situation I created for myself, the staff at Artisan went out of their way to help me find a answer to my predicament. Their team worked with me to find a fast solution pulling me out of a situation I knew very few companies would go out of their way to solve. It's those actions I use to choose who I will send my next job. The service was awesome! The quality was awesome! Their staff was Awesome!
Raegan S.
Artisan Colour is the most creative, talented and friendly place to print and mind meld.  I have been satisfied with every experience I have had with them.  Front end to delivery topnotch.  So glad I was directed to them.

Simply the best. Great client services, great people, and great products.
ArtisanHD Online Photo Printing Review – Dan M.Dan M.
When I inadvertently shipped a limited edition print to a customer before signing it, Artisan was quick to have it rerouted back to their facility to resolve my issue. When I then showed up during the holiday season –– right before New Year's Eve –– I was met by no less than the company's president, Doug Bondon, who was genuinely happy to assist me and get my order on its way in a matter of minutes. Folks, this is what topnotch, white glove service really looks like. Outstanding!
