FAQ

Q:

What is a Metal Print?

A:

Metal printing involves the pressing of ink onto durable, high-quality sheets of aluminum. It generally consists of printing a photo onto metal with a special kind of ink and drying process - making your prints look crisp and rich in color on a more matte-looking finish.

Q:

Why Metal Prints Are the Future for Printed Photography?

A:

Picture frames are so yesterday. Metal prints represent a new frontier of decorative photography. Recent advancements in technology have made it possible to print photographs onto metal, giving your favorite pictures a vivid, defined look that will give others, well, what we call - "walenvy." Hanging metal prints on your wall, especially with our chrome barrel standoffs, gives your memories the display they deserve.

Q:

How Do I Mount My Metal or Acrylic Prints?

A:

You have options! We have two types of waluv customers - those who prefer to hang their prints on the wall with adhesive strips or barrel standoffs.
Adhesive strips are the best option for customers who like their prints flat on the wall, with no accessories interfering. Chrome barrel standoffs are for the best option for customers who love the flair of a modern-looking accessory, and like their art to pop off the wall.
If you choose waluv's chrome barrel standoffs, waluv will pre-drill the holes for free in your print. Each hole is drilled 3/8" hole diameter, 5/8" to center of each hole.
Additionally, some of our customers don't hang their prints at all. Instead, they creatively lean their metal or acrylic prints on shelves or desks. Since we know customers like to shake up their space, we throw in command strips for free. When you do feel like hanging your art on the wall, you'll have the adhesive strips.
Mounting instructions will be included in your order.

waluv’s durable standoffs are ½ inch round.

Q:

Can Your Photo Prints Be Hung Outside?

A:

We get that you want to put your photos everywhere (we do, too!), but for keeping your print in the best condition, we recommend your metal and acrylic prints stay indoors.

Q:

Brushed Metal vs White Metal Prints

A:

Brushed aluminum metal gives you a metallic look on non-printed areas, while white coated aluminum metal provides a matte finish.

Q:

What is an Acrylic Print?

A:

Both metal prints and acrylic prints offer a gorgeous way to display your photographs, but they differ greatly when it comes to their unique benefits. Acrylic photo printing involves printing onto photographic paper and then your print is infused onto a clear or frosted acrylic glass. Aluminum standoffs can be used to attach the acrylic frame to the wall, giving it visual depth.
