3DHD Aluminum metal prints give you an edge with the industry's first turned-edge aluminum panel

When our team set out to develop the industry’s first turned-edge aluminum panel print, we didn’t know what we were up against. With over two decades of flat aluminum panel printing under our belts, the idea seemed simple enough. We quickly learned that challenges like cracking, warping, and image distortion were a force to be reckoned with. 

But you don’t compromise on creating your images—and we don’t compromise on bringing them to life. So, we researched, designed, and tested until we created perfection, and we’re proud to share the results: our 3DHD Infused Aluminum Prints are the ideal medium to make your photos leap off the wall with gallery-quality vibrancy. 

Made from durable aluminum and using the leading technologies for image transfer, brightness, and precision, our 3DHD Infused Aluminum Prints combine strength, beauty, and innovation to give your photos an edge. 

Metal Print Anatomy

All printed images are precision cut and converted into a 3DHD metal print by precisely folding back the edges with a 1” return. The image extends around the sides for a floating feel when displayed.

The result is a lightweight yet durable metal print with perfect, machine-radiused gallery edges—you’ll get the finished frameless look of a traditional canvas print, with a higher definition that can last a lifetime.

Each print is distortion-free with radiused edges and free from cracking and stress lines. As with all Prolab Digital products, each piece is inspected for absolute perfection and then packed with care.

How It's Made

The 3DHD Aluminum Metal Prints at Prolab Digital are CNC'd to reshape their aluminum panels to unique designs

Our pioneering process began with rethinking the aluminum panel from the ground up. Since no existing panel could perform under pressure caused by turning the edges, we partnered with industry-leading manufacturers to create our own panel using Infused White Aluminum metal. We also customized our panels with a luxe, anti-glare finish that adds stunning depth and realism to the final print.

Your images are then infused into the aluminum with a special process that turns ink into gas and traps the vapor within the aluminum for a permanent, brilliant, fade-resistant finish. This technique delivers unparalleled clarity with scratch, moisture, and chemical resistance.

3dhd aluminum FAQs

How is it made?

Every piece goes through a meticulous process and is individually handled and carefully inspected to ensure the highest quality. Archival ink turns into gas and is pressed into the aluminum panel through the perfect combination of high pressure and heat. This process, called dye sublimation, infuses the ink into the aluminum panel. The aluminum panel is then left to cool, trapping the ink and solidifying its permanence.

The infused bond between ink and metal produces prints resistant to scratches, chemicals, fading, warping, and cracking. For our 3DHD Infused Aluminum Prints, the final turning stage gives the panel dimension by carefully bending the edges to a perfect 90 degrees, thus completing the gallery edge that helps your artwork come to life.

How long does it take?

Perfection takes time, and we want to ensure that your artwork comes out as you intended. Our craftsmen provide an unmatched level of care and attention—from start to finish, each detail of your piece is carefully inspected. Our standard production time is 7-12 business days for most products. If you need it sooner, please call us at 310.846.4496.

does a metal box print fade?

Our infused metal prints will resist fading and yellowing for over 100 years indoors. Prolab Digital’s specially formulated anti-glare coating also resists scratching, fading, and peeling. It is vital to choose a professional and experienced printing source for longevity and durability. We pride ourselves on our quality and use only the best materials in the industry.  

Does this replace TRADITIONAL canvas? 

Canvas and metal prints are both excellent choices; however, there are many things to consider when choosing the perfect medium to display your photos. Canvas photos more closely resemble original painted and textured work due to the natural texture and fiber of the canvas material. Due to the ink absorption and texture of canvas, fine detail may be slightly distorted and less vibrant. Canvas prints cannot be easily cleaned and are not resistant to scratching, heat, or chemicals.

Our 3D metal box prints replicate vibrant colors at incredible detail.  Aluminum box prints are a statement piece for modern spaces. Photos from landscapes, cars, portraits and cityscapes look spectacular on aluminum. Aluminum box prints are easy to clean and are scratch, moisture, and flame resistant.

do you offer custom sized metal prints?

Yes! At Prolab Digital, we believe that your art should never be constrained into standard sizes. All of our products are offered as custom size pieces, so feel free to crop, zoom, pan, or tilt your images as desired.

what are the different metal finishes for box prints?

We spent a lot of time researching the best finish for our metal box prints. For the most luxurious statement piece, we opted for a beautiful anti-glare coating with just the right amount of sheen. Want a different finish?
