ChromaLuxe’s new Textured Metal Prints has fended off the competition to be crowned Product of the Year in the Media-Dye Sublimation Rigid Material category by Printing United Alliance.

More than 200 entries were submitted across 85 categories for the annual awards which showcase products that ‘keep the printing industry moving forward.’ 

ChromaLuxe says the product has been developed to meet requirements of printers, photo labs and designers who strive for ‘high quality, creative, artistic and durable metal prints.’  

Peter Boodts, senior marketing manager for ChromaLuxe EMEA explained, ‘This innovative addition to our product line allows ChromaLuxe print houses to explore new applications and business opportunities. The unique look and feel of this durable print media enables them to reproduce painted artwork or specific photographic work, like portrait and landscape photography, with added depth and atmosphere.’

The prints are also designed to be glare and fingerprint resistant, to posses a consistent texture across panels and to be both highly durable and easy to clean. This makes them well suited to use in high traffic commercial and residential areas, as wall decoration, for image reproduction, reproduction of paintings and signage.
