Printing on Metal – Free Metal Print Giveaway: Artsy Couture

This month we have a great giveaway for ON1 customers from Artsy Couture – a free Metal print! Metal prints offer unrivaled color brilliance on a crisp new wall decor medium. In this video, I will cover some of the best practices for printing on metal – and how to make a beautiful print with ON1 Photo RAW 2018.

Metal prints offer unrivaled color brilliance and are one of my favorite mediums to print on. Metal Prints are the most vibrant of all print media, and Artsy Couture creates them by infusing an image onto a 1mm thick aluminum backing and finished with a protective white gloss, which keeps your image water and dust resistant.

Sign up for the free metal print giveaway here.

Artsy Couture makes it incredibly easy to have your image printed at their shop Prints are available in various sizes, from 4×4” to 24×36″, and come with a wide variety of display options like an easel, black shadow mount, float mount hanger, and stainless steel standoffs. They even offer a Quality Control team will only order a reprint of the piece if an imperfection distracts from the image itself. To top it all off, Complimentary Color Corrections are included.

    Hi Hudson, nice presentation and can you qualify how one has to adjust the brightness as compared to printing on paper? When I print on paper I create a test print with different exposures (much like we used to do in the darkroom days). It’s cheap and ensures that I’ve got the file adjusted to maximize the output. Obviously, one can’t do that when ordering a metal print. Also, do you have recommendations for output sharpening to this media. Thanks.

    Thanks so much. If you search for my posts on printing in the Forums and in the Plus blog, you’ll find I’m a huge advocate of editing all your images with your screen calibrated to about 80cdm2 (about half brightness for modern LCDs). That keeps my prints looking bright and nice and I never have people complain about my images looking too bright on screen, so I stick with it 100% of the time. Unless I forget after watching a film on the plane on my laptop, then I have to re-edit my images after I remember to turn it down. 🙂
    I’d use a glossy output sharpening in Resize. They don’t have profiles for the metal so it’s best to let the staff at the lab color correct. I find they do a fine job.
