Direct to Media UV printing is exactly that; we can print your image directly to a flat substrate of your choice, up to four inches thick and 8 x 10 ft as one full piece. Direct to media can be highly durable compared to traditional prints mounted to a substrate, with the added bonus of being water-resistant.

We always advise you to book a test print before printing full artwork as images present differently depending on the substrates.

blankAt Vogue and National Portrait Gallery we really can say, without any question how much we appreciated all the work Metro put in.
