When You’re Unlike Anything Else

There’s a reason ‘Luxe’ is in our name. We are the world’s leading manufacturer of superior print mediums.

Through dye sublimation, images are infused directly into our specially coated sheets of metal, wood and tabletop panels to create the most luxurious, vibrant and long lasting photo medium in the world.

All coatings and substrates are made in the U.S.A. with manufacturing and fabrication done in Louisville, KY. Our additional locations in Belgium and Australia allow us to serve our global customer base and supply our products to more than 80 countries worldwide.

ChromaLuxe is an extension of the Universal Woods family, the world’s leading manufacturer of hard surface sublimatable products and mezzanine decking. It is also a sister brand to Unisub, which provides the highest quality sublimatable custom products.

We’re Green!

ChromaLuxe is committed to the responsible use of environmental resources, in fact, environmental sustainability is an integral part of our business model. We have chosen to be an environmentally friendly organization for both ethical and economic reasons. From the use of recycled materials in the manufacturing of our products to workplace recycling and green initiatives, ChromaLuxe has developed a culture of environmental stewardship.


  • Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) Compliant

  • ISO 9001:2008 Compliant
    As an ISO 9001 certified organization, ChromaLuxe is committed to the following principles: a strong customer focus, leadership, involvement of people, process approach, system approach to management, continual improvement, fact-based decision making and mutually beneficial supplier relationships.

  • The coating that is applied to the substrates contains no lead or other heavy metals or phthalates. This coating is a thin, very durable film which is cured using a low energy process creating no emissions from the facility.
  • Contain no VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds).
  • CPSIA Compliance
  • Environmentally considerate facility that uses a low energy process for curing the coating.
  • Recycling program actively in place (see details below).
  • Low energy light bulbs are in place.
  • Efficiency program in place to unplug or shut down any unneeded equipment when possible.
  • The manufacturing plant is an environmentally considerate facility that uses a low energy process for curing the Unisub coatings. Plastic drinking water bottles and aluminum cans are recycled. Aluminum and steel are recycled on-site as well as any plain paper. Low energy use light bulbs are in place as well as a program of unplugging or shutting down any unneeded equipment when possible.
  • REACH (Europe) Information: Unisub articles in formal use have no chemical emissions for REACH consideration. At this time Unisub products are REACH exempt.
  • CPSA Compliance
  • Created from post-consumer recycled aluminum.
  • Green Circle certified. Aleris Rolled Products, LLC. Green Circle Certification
  • Material can be recycled.
  • Our aluminum supplier is GreenCircle Certified: GreenCircle certifies environmental claims of products to prevent unfair or deceptive claims in the marketplace; our aluminum supplier has been audited by a 3rd party organization to confirm their recyclable claims.
  • Aluminum that we purchase is both created by pre and post-consumer recycled material and is recyclable. This is important because material is diverted from the waste stream through the recycling infrastructure and can be used for other products.
  • MDF products are purchased through a mill that is part of the Composite Panel Association Eco-Certified Composite Grademark Program (GM Program). The GM Program requires the mill to periodically be tested to confirm compliance and also requires that a mill’s quality control system meet strict criteria for personnel, procedures and facilities. This is a voluntary standard and is the optimal use of forestry byproducts and residuals – turning recycled and reclaimed material into higher value products to it’s not wasted. The composite wood panels we purchase from Georgia-Pacific are among the greenest products available; only products carrying the ECC-certified logo are produced in a manufacturing plant or facility that is audited and certified by CPA.
  • The standard focuses on life cycle inventory and other verifiable environmental practices and highlights the responsible use of wood fiber by composite panel manufacturers.
  • Our MDF procured products meet the following requirements for the ECC certificate:
  • California Air Resources Board (CARB) compliant - No added formaldehyde (NAF: CARB Executive Order N-15-021)
  • Carbon Footprint: The plant demonstrates that the panel’s carbon store offsets its cradle-to-gate carbon footprint as determined in kg-CO2 equivalents of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The plant uses the CPA Carbon Calculator to determine if a panel performs as a carbon sink resulting in overall net carbon storage
  • Local and Renewable Resource: At least 85% of total annual wood fiber used is sourced within 250 miles (402 km) of the manufacturing plant.
  • Recycled/Recovered use a minimum of 75% recycled or recovered fiber; OR at least 50% recycled or recovered fiber AND a minimum of 5% postconsumer fiber. Percentages shall be calculated on a weight basis as measured in bone dry tons (bdt).
  • Sustainability: The plant shall document that greater than 97% fiber furnish brought on-site to manufacture panels is either converted into panels or other non-waste products.
  • Wood Sourcing: The plant shall hold a valid assessment and certificate from a certifying agency recognized by CPA such as the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC—Controlled Wood Standard or Chain of Custody Standard) or the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI—Fiber Sourcing Standard).
  • FSC Information: Our MDF supplier does offer FSC certified board; they purchase FSC certified wood chips to make our MDF photo panels. To move forward with this, it would require a substantial investment to allow us FSC chain of custody certification. This would include the FSC certificate transfer of custody fee and additional handling to follow the board as it goes through each of the manufacturing steps.
  • Raw material fulfills CARB requirements, which means that it has a clean content with minimal added formaldehyde each of the manufacturing steps.
  • Raw material fulfills CARB requirements, which means that it has a clean content with minimal added formaldehyde.
  • Material can be recycled.
  • Created out of 80% post-consumer recycled material.
  • CARB* Ultra Low Emitting Formaldehyde.
  • It has a clean content with minimal added formaldehyde.
  • Statement of Forestry Responsibility
  • International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures – Revision of ISPM no. 15: Regulation of Wood Packaging Material in International Trade
  • Material can be recycled.
  • Created out of some recycled content.
  • Recycle all cardboard.
  • Recycle all steel strapping.
  • Recycle all used steel, copper wire, and aluminum from our maintenance activities/projects.
  • Recycle all aluminum scrap.
  • Recycle all paper products from the office.
  • Recycle all used oils from maintenance.
  • Recycle all water bottles and aluminum cans that are placed in the proper containers.
  • Dust from the dust collectors are used for “solidification” of liquid waste instead of adding to the municipal dump.
  • Compacted trash will be sorted and recyclables removed*CARB (California Air Resource Board) was established to limit the emission of formaldehyde from products. It set emission limits from these products and developed a chain-of-custody tracking system to ensure compliance. For ChromaLuxe, this means our hardboard products neither contain nor emit formaldehyde and our MDF products have clean content with minimal added formaldehyde. CARB has granted us an exemption from their rule and have issued us an exemption number and no chain-of-custody is necessary when using or reselling our products.
