Aluminum is such a versatile metal. It is available in sheets, coil, foil, wire, anodized, raw, and even in many colors. This means that our clients have the freedom and flexibility to really experiment with how their aluminum applications, and that they often use aluminum for a dual-purpose of beauty and function. Below is a small selection of some of the many aluminum applications we love.

Aluminum Printing

We have seen a huge increase in artists investing in our aluminum sheets and supplies. This goes far beyond cutting, aging, and painting—and points to a growing trend in aluminum printing. This includes printing everyday photographs on aluminum sheets, to printing out one-of-a-kind digital art.

When printed on aluminum, dye is infused into the aluminum—delivering both vibrant pigments, and a unique finish that only aluminum can deliver.

Pressed or Punched Aluminum Ceilings

Ceilings are an often forgotten area of design, making aluminum applications an easy way to create a stunning focal point. Aluminum ceilings can create both classic and modern designs. From metal sheets pressed in 20s-inspired patterns, to aluminum with funky cutouts hung in a decorative manner on the ceilings.

Hammered aluminum is a timeless trend. Aluminum can be hammered to create a vintage look, or a contemporary or industrial look. It can be used to add texture to art or personality to furniture or kitchenware. It is also an application that can alter shape and form. Hammering can be done with everything from a wood mallet, standard hammer, or a multitude of innovative texturing tools.

Aluminum Canvas

Aluminum has become an alternate canvas for many painters. Painting on aluminum allows for art that can transition from indoor to outdoor, as long it is properly primed and sealed. Even if it is not apparent that aluminum is the background, painters love mixed mediums—and the unique brush strokes they can achieve when painting on a less standard surface. Those who weld can even create 3D embellishments to apply directly to their multimedia paintings. You can even paint aluminum siding.

The sky is the limit when it comes to aluminum applications. New aluminum applications across a multitude of industries are constantly being discovered. It is always our goal to provide you with aluminum products that are both high-quality and competitively priced. If you have any questions about our products, just let us know.
