p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Printer for the metal prints


I'm looking to purchase a large format printer that can handle aluminum or other metal prints. I really don't know what is the best and where should I look for. I also have some desire to be able to print on canvas and fabrics. I am not sure if there is one printer that is able to handle it all.
Thank you.

I don't personally have a setup that prints on metal, but I can say from being to labs that do that you will need to invest in more than the printer. Most metal printing (e.g. Chromaluxe) is done using dye sublimation. So you'll need a large format dye sub printer as well a large heat press to adhere the transfer material to the metal. You'll probably need a cutter that can handle the large sheets of aluminum as well.

You need a press to make metal prints and your printer must use dye based inks. Dye isn’t ideal for canvas you’d have to spray with a lacquer to prevent water damage
