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.

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.
In addition to being durable, metal prints give your photos a luxurious and modern feel. Download the Ultimate Guide to Printing on Metal to get started.
Caution: Dibond® is metal. We cut your metal prints to size with a high-speed router,
and the SHARP edges can be dangerous to small children and pets if placed low on your wall!
Please be careful when opening your shipment, and with your installation and placement.

Dibond Direct (Brushed Metal)
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!

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.
