  • Unlike other photo print media, ChromaLuxe metal prints are easy to clean. The metal prints can be cleaned with a cloth and any all-purpose household cleaner. The cleaner can be sprayed directly on the surface of the print and then wiped with a cloth as needed.
  • ChromaLuxe metal prints were tested by Wilhelm Imaging Research and achieved a permanence rating of more than 60 years using two distinct ink sets. This rating is more than three times better than silver halide photo papers.
  • ChromaLuxe HD aluminum and wood panels are not for permanent outdoor display. ChromaLuxe EXT photo panels are made specifically for outdoor use. ChromaLuxe EXT gives users the ability to take prints outdoors, or into direct sunlight with the image quality and durability they’ve come to expect from other ChromaLuxe products. These UV resistant panels come in a variety of common sizes to serve the signage, display and outdoor photography markets.

In Your Eyes

ChromaLuxe has a luminescence I find extraordinary. It’s robust and contemporary. I like the fact that you’re not looking through a reflective surface, like you would with glass or acrylic. You can get into the image in a way you never could before. The combination of high-end digital cameras and ChromaLuxe is the perfect marriage.
