If you love photos, you have probably experimented with all kinds of different things. For instance, you might make large displays of several photos in a single frame, or you might make collages and bulletin boards with hundreds of photos. And for any photo lover, the ability to print out your digital photos has been a godsend. It has allowed many of us to use our photos in all kinds of artistic ways we never would have thought of before.

But is it even possible to print a photo on metal?

Think of the possibilities! If you had a photo on metal, you could use it in all kinds of craft projects that you cannot use a paper photo for. For people who are simply interested in furnishing their homes, metal photos are a sophisticated way to display any special photos. Metal last longer, it holds up to more wear and tear, and it has a texture and sheen that make it different from even the nicest printed photo. So how do you get a photo on metal of your own?

The first thing many people think of is simply taking a paper photo and sticking it onto metal. Unfortunately, this does not have the desired effect at all. If you go this route, you are essentially just improvising a poor man’s version of a paper photo in a metal frame. Obviously, it doesn’t look the same as a photo printed onto the metal itself. And it is flimsy and unlikely to last long.

What you really need is a photo on metal, as in printed onto the metal surface. But please don’t try putting sheet metal into your printer! Even if you can get a piece that’s thin enough to go through, it’s not going to work – you’ll just end up ruining the printer. And the ink wouldn’t stay, in any case.
