About Print 2 Metal
Introduced by Dutch born Frank Hoekstra in 2010, Print 2 Metal has become the leading expert in the refined art of metal printing. Frank’s interest in photography started as a young child with the encouragement of his uncle. Together they shared the magic of the dark room and the thrill of capturing a moment in time, through the charm of a camera. He has since made photography his life.
Beginning as a professional photographer in Europe, to operating his own photo lab in Melbourne for 20 years, eventually led him to launching Print 2 Metal’s innovative technology and superior product making for a wide clientele. He recently completed Certificate IV in Engineering with an emphasis on metal fabrication and welding, to extend the creative options to photographers and artists, as well as a range of industries including graphics, interior design, architecture, advertising and display signage.
All prints and frames are lovingly hand crafted in our Melbourne studio and shipped worldwide. We love what we do and it shows in every detail. We look forward to printing your specially chosen files! Visit their website to find out more: https://www.print2metal.com.
