Material & colour
Printing on alu-dibond allows for manufacturing at the highest level. The sky really is the limit when using this material. The more picture information contained in your image file, the better. When choosing materials we put emphasis on precision and quality, and work exclusively with Alu-dibond produced in Germany. That way we can assure our quality claims for the final printing results.
XXLPIX offers Alu-Dibond in two varieties. You decide if you would like us to print your image on a white, semi-matte surface or on brush-finished aluminium. The appeal of both options lies in the precious look as well as the premium quality and durability of the material. The material strength for each is 3 mm. The brushed-finished aluminium also impresses with its fine surface texture and a metallic shine you may know from photo papers.
Production & delivery
Current technological advances in the printing industry are considerable. With the technology used at XXLPIX and the use of high quality materials, as well as accurate pre-processing, it is now possible for the first time to print directly on highly even surfaces such as Alu-Dibond with a resolution of up to 1400 dpi. To this day, there are still companies that simply glue posters to Alu-Dibond. By printing directly on the aluminium, your image is intrinsically tied to this firm, high quality material. No bleached-out paper causes your print to age, no glue separates from the material. During transport, Alu-Dibond prints are specially protected. The Alu-Dibond print is packaged in bubble wrap and, with protective corners, is packaged with a specifically manufactured cardboard carton, which then is sealed in a final box and protected from any transport damage. This way, we guarantee that your artwork travels safely.
