Metal & Etched Photos

Metalphoto allows for reproduction of photographs and text onto photo sensitive Aluminum. Some touch-up can be done on old photos. Photographs with a 300 .dpi (dots per inch) or higher work best for this process. We can also convert National Register Plaque information into a metal photograph for a less expensive alternative to a National Register plaque.

The main difference between Metalphoto and Etched Photos is that a Metalphoto is smooth to the touch where an etched photo has raised and lowered areas due to the acid etching process. Our Metal and Etched photo’s can be ordered as "stand alone" plaques, or they can be epoxied to your plaque.
