Sleek & Contemporary
Our stunning aluminium composite prints (Dilite® prints) are the popular choice for floating larger Fine Art images for frames and exhibition displays. Dilite® is a lightweight but strong aluminium composite panel. It is made up of two 0.20mm aluminium layers with a polyethylene core making it 3mm thick in total.
Fine Art archival pigment prints are pressure mounted onto the aluminium surface to give a beautiful flat finish that can be sealed with a matte, gloss or ultra acrylic gloss.
We recommend aluminium prints for exhibition work due to the archival nature of the material.

Choose the perfect print finish for your image & style:
Smooth Matte Finish
An anti-reflective finish to achieve a smooth matte look. Images still look sharp.
Standard Gloss Acrylic
For added vibrancy and a modern, glossy look.
An ultra-glossy look for an almost acrylic like finish. Comes with a removable protective film to remain finger mark free.
SUBSTRATE & HANGING
Lightweight and Ready to hang
The aluminium subframe adds rigidity to the acrylic and ensures it doesn’t warp over time and stays perfectly floated on the wall.
Aluminium Composite (Dibond)
0.20mm of aluminium with a black PVC centre (overall thickness 3mm). The perfect option when looking for a rigid archival printed panel that has great stiffness. This option is considerably lighter than solid aluminium sheets making it a more popular choice, especially for extra-large panels. Max size 1500mm x 3000mm.

Help & Advice
Here are some of the most frequesntly asked questions.
Yes, it comes with an aluminium subframe on the back as standard and it sits 2 inches from the top of the aluminium edge.
We provide square hangers on the sides which are also useful to help level the piece if wall fixings are not accurate. For smaller pieces (less that 30×20 inches) these can be hung directly from the subframe lip if desired. Galleries often do this as they swap images around and need a quick solution that hangs level.
Yes, as the panels are pre-cut we must oversize the image slightly by adding a 5mm of bleed on all sides. This is to allow the print to be trimmed and the image to sit flush to the edge.
It doesn’t matter is you image is a 12×16 inch or giant 40×60 inch you only loose 5mm of the image on all edges.
