The HD Metal Print is one of WhiteWall’s premium products. To make it, your photo is first mirrored and printed onto a transfer sheet using Fine Art inkjet inks. Then, in a process involving high pressure and heat, the print is steamed from the transfer sheet into the aluminum’s special coating, where it is permanently sealed in. The process is called dye sublimation, and it allows for the rendering of exact details and brilliant colours with excellent durability .
The aluminum is 1 mm thick and has a special, transparent coating, making it a straightforward and durable substrate for your photo. HD Metal Prints are easy to handle in any size or format, and they are weatherproof and impervious to fluctuations in temperature.
Your image truly shines in an HD Metal Print. We offer 2 finishes with different looks.
Since the print is actually burned into the aluminum’s special coating, it is not affected by UV rays, dust, or moisture.
This makes the HD Metal Print suitable for outdoor areas and bathrooms, as well as for long-term outdoor exhibitions or advertising.
You can order your HD Metal Print in the exact format you like, and we produce it to your exact specifications. We offer standard formats from mini to extra-large sizes with optional cut or rounded corners. Or you can create your own statement piece with a panoramic, circular, or square format.
Or you set your own custom aspect ratio and let your imagination run wild.
HD Metal Prints arrive ready to hang with aluminum rails attached to the back for easy installation out of the box. If you would like a visual border or warmer appearance for your picture, you can also choose from 100 different frame options in a variety of styles. Our frames also arrive ready to hang in both landscape and portrait orientation.
The integrated wall-mounts on the back of the picture make it easy to hang it securely. Depending on the size of your picture, we have 3 different wall-mounts included in the standard price:
Every one of your pictures is perfectly secure in our made-to-measure specialty packaging, meaning it will reach you safe and sound.

Some inventions are completely unnecessary, some are what everyone was waiting for and then there are those inventions that maybe nobody waited for but once they hit the market, we wonder how we ever did without them. Our HD metal print is one of those. It basically is the missing link: Our WhiteWall HD metal print is ranked as a premium print. It is amazingly robust, yet elegant – and a little extravagant. Rain and changing weather are no problem and it is also suitable for roofed outdoor areas and bathrooms. The dye sublimation process makes the print durable and extremely robust. The amazing details and brilliant colour results give the picture grandeur. Your image is very colour-intensive? Perfect for a HD metal print that you could – for example – hang on your balcony: It will make you smile every time you look out the window – even if it is raining outside.
WhiteWall has invented other products as well that nobody would want to live without ever again. The direct print on brushed aluminum is an eye-catching product for very special images. The horizontally brushed aluminum surface shines through in white and very light-coloured areas, giving the entire image a contemporary matt look. A metallic sheen appears in the brighter areas. This effect is particularly striking for the presentation of free-standing objects or for images containing metallic surfaces. At WhiteWall, we use state-of-the-art inks for the very best print quality. Applied as a six-colour print, the inks are cured under UV light to form a matt surface. The procedure protects this type of print against dirt and splash water, and the colours keep their brilliance – direct prints on aluminum are almost as great as HD metal prints. But only almost.
This one was not one of our inventions – but we have perfected it for top quality results: Original photo prints on aluminum Dibond. The right type of photo paper will make the most of your picture – a high-quality alternative for HD metal prints. But we did invent one other thing as well... for an incredible depth of field: As we are one of the pioneers among online labs, we have developed laminates under acrylic glass for you that achieve great depth effects under acrylic glass – starting with as little as 2 mm thick. At 4 mm you get gallery quality. Display your pictures the way you love them the most. We do our best to help you with that and give your images a long life as well.
