Kayell Australia, in association with Booksmart Studio, is pleased to announce the addition of Booksmart Studio inkjet printable Fine Art Metals series into our line of fine art digital imaging materials. These Fine Art Metals are comprised of aluminum and gold coated with a inkjet receptive coating and provide clear, crisp images with a beautifully luminous background. The Fine Art Metals provide digital artists with a unique substrate allowing them to incorporate new and exciting elements into their work.
The Fine Art Metals series is available in thicknesses of 0.30mm, 0.40mm, and 0.51mm and sheet sizes of A4, A3, A3+, 17" x 22", 20" x 24", and 20" x 36". Additional sheet sizes of 20" x 40", 20" x 60" and 20" x 80" are available as special order items. Adhesive backing is included to simplify the mounting process and is optional on certain sizes.
The Fine Art Metals are available in aluminum, with Brushed Silver, Matte Silver, Satin Silver, and Satin White finishes and in gold, with a Satin Gold Finish. A Fine Art Metals sampler set is available containing five sheets of 1.3mm thick material in Matte Silver, Satin Silver, Satin Gold, Satin White and Brushed Silver, all with adhesive backing. After printing, the Fine Art Metals require top coating with a inkjet varnish to protect the inkjet receptive coating.
Printers having a "straight through" substrate path can be used with the 1.3mm, 3.0mm, and 4.0mm thicknesses ( All Epson Wide Format Printers ). Printers incorporating a "J-curve" substrate path are limited to the 0.30mm thick material. Before printing, check to ensure that the metal will feed through the printer by loading a sheet.
