Sample Packs

The sample pack is a great way to see a printed sample of the Allure direct-print metal, and also to run a couple of test prints on your own.

In the box you will find:

  • One printed sample and 
  • Two un-printed 13"x19" samples

Why should I use Allure for my metal prints?

Allure direct-print metal is the ideal solution for extremely high-quality metal prints. Traditionally the dye sublimation process has been used to attain a sellable metal print. There are a number of notable benefits that you gain by being able to print directly to metal:

  • Use the highest quality OEM pigmented inks, instead of dye inks traditionally used in the sublimation process. This will greatly improve print permanence and lightfastness.
  • Highest quality inkjet coating developed by Breathing Color. Get the fantastic print quality, dmax, color density, and resolution you've come to expect from other Breathing Color products.
  • Use a single product for gloss, satin, and matte metal prints. You will customize your finish using the laminate film, so you can reduce your inventory costs and free up storage space.
  • No need for a special printer. Use the same aqueous inkjet printers you are already using for canvas and paper printing.
  • No heat press. Large heat presses can cost you $10,000-$20,000+, not to mention the training required on top.
  • Skipping the dye sublimation transfer process and printing direct to the metal allows for a higher resolution end product. Think fine art and photo paper prints.

Description

Allure is a revolutionary new product from Breathing Color that allows you to print directly to the metal using your existing Epson and Canon printer and OEM inks.

Been wanting to get into metal printing, but haven't made the big investment in dye sublimation equipment? What if I told you that you could be selling metal prints without investing in all of the expensive equipment associated with getting started?

Or, if you’re already offering metal prints, what if you could eliminate the waste typically associated with the dye sub process?

DISCLAIMER

Allure Photo Panels for Aqueous printing is a new, breakthrough technology. Therefore, while we would love to guarantee that it will work perfectly with every aqueous printer, we simply cannot. Furthermore, we cannot guarantee that the specific printer you use (including those on our compatible printer list) will be able to handle the sheets during loading. We also cannot guarantee that your print heads, sheet-feeding mechanisms on your printer, or any other aspect of the printer will not get damaged as a result of using this product. Therefore, you will be using this product at your own risk. We will not reimburse for any printer issues or damages whatsoever caused by this product - even if you are using a printer on our compatible printer list. What we can tell you is that this product is typically within the specs for media thickness as specified by the printer manufacturer. Additionally, we have printed thousands of images on Epson printers internally and have not experienced any printer damage whatsoever. While we don't expect any printer damage to occur, we simply cannot guarantee that some form of printer damage may happen, and we cannot be held liable for any damages. Again, if you choose to purchase and use this product, you will be doing so at your own risk.

We recommend first purchasing a sample kit in order to test your specific printer and ramp up from there.
