Why Print on Aluminum?
All Sand Dollar Images are preserved by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets and finished with a elegant semi-gloss surface. As a result, the colors are both vibrant and luminescent. The images are durable, rust and fade resistant, particularly when hung out of direct sunlight. In fact, Xenon Light Stability Testing results show that this print process has 2 to 4 times the image stability of traditional silver based photo papers. Images are available in a wide variety of standard and custom sizes ranging from 8" x 8" squares to 48" x 96" panoramics. The maximum size and recommended shape of a print are determined by both the image quality and the artist's judgement. Clients have the choice of a traditional wire mount or French cleat for hanging which allow the prints to float away from the wall (see example below).
