Metal Prints

Create Your Personalised Print Now!
With our Online Creator Tool.

With the popularity of steampunk and all-things industrial on the rise, you too can give your images an edge, by printing them directly onto dibond® with a brushed aluminium finish.

A rising décor trend in America,  printing onto metal has gained international popularity in the interior design industry, leading to a surge in demand from up and coming designers and creatives looking to explore the possibilities of this unique substrate.

Industry Leading Metal Printing:
Here at Orms, we’re proud to say that we are one of the first companies in South Africa to offer brushed aluminium prints.

Archival properties:
The inks are not archival but through simulated testing, are said to last 75 years out of direct sunlight and 5 years in direct sunlight.

Turnaround time:

Peak Season (Nov – Dec) 7 – 10 working days.


  • Dibond® with a brushed aluminium finish;
  • Standard prints: 3 mm thick;
  • Max Print Size: 1500 x 3000 mm;
  • White ink off (No white ink used);
  • Black and white images recommended;

Recommended framing solution: It is not necessary to frame your metal print as we attach a sub-frame that makes it appear as if it’s floating 25 mm away from the wall. If you wish, your metal print can floated in a shadow box frame without glass.

What printer do you use?

Swiss Q Flatbed Printer.

What inks do you use?

Sericol solvent inks.

How does it work?
  • I print your image directly onto a 3 mm thick piece of dibond® with a brushed aluminium finish.
  • I turn off the white ink option, so there is no ink coverage in the white areas on your image, to allow the metal to shine through.
  • Our printer uses UV light to dry the ink as soon as it’s applied to the metal for a stronger, more durable print.
  • Even though the inks are dried immediately after being printed on the metal, we recommend a 24-hour resting period to prevent any scratching.
  • I then attach a sub-frame to the back so your metal print is ready to hang. For print sizes up to and including A1 size I attach a wooden sub-frame. For sizes larger than A1 I attach a metal sub-frame since the substrate needs extra support on the larger sizes.
What is steampunk?

Originating in literature, steampunk has become a décor trend that combines new technology with old-school design – think dark wood, rusty metals and leather.
