Di-Bond and HD Metal Framed Prints – A new Era
We are always on the lookout for new, high quality ways, in which our limited edition prints can be produced which is why we’ve started supplying them in Di-Bond acrylic & HD metal frame variants.
A couple of years ago we were in art gallery that really made us go ‘Whoa’! – razor sharp images with great depth.
We found out that the image had been produced on Fuji Crystal DP II paper (colour safe for 75 years) and mounted on an extremely stable and high quality, lightweight aluminium Dibond base. This is then sealed and mounted under glossy acrylic glass using elastic silicon. Acrylic glass is notably lighter and tougher than traditional glass and it also offers natural protection against UV rays, thereby helping to prevent any loss of colour. The edges are precision cut and smoothed to give a class finish. We needed to get one of our images produced in this way.
The first piece produced on the di-bond was the Rossi 2013 and it caused quite a stir at the Silverstone MotoGP. Since then we have had a large number produced in this way, everyone seems to like it. Mostly now we sell them in an aluminium frame which just seems to finish them off!
A little bit more expensive than the norm but people that have bought them think the extra is worth it.
Any of our limited edition prints can be produced in this format including the SLIMS (£300 each unframed, £380 framed). Each piece is made to order by a specialist company based in Germany. Delivery is usually within 2/3 weeks.

Our usual frame, on a di-bond acrylic, is a 25mm black aluminium Artbox style. We think it fits the bill but there are a huge number of different frames, far too many to display on here. Below you will see examples of the black and silver Artbox, together with a 15mm black wooden Basel frame. This has also proved popular. If you want something else you just have to ask but please be aware it can alter the final price.
