    Does anyone offer or know of a vendor who provides wholesale pricing for printing direct onto metal like the attached photo? I'm guessing brushed aluminum 3mm diabond or similar with a uv liquid laminate. The unique grain of the aluminum shows through with the image printed on it. I don't have a flat bed printer...any suggestions would be appreciated

    I don't think that is an option as they want the raised "grain" to be visable...maybe "touchable"...so the clear film is going to feel like film...good suggestion though...I wish it was that easy :)

    We print with our Flora UV Flatbed to the Brushed Finish Composite Aluminum quite often. Works very well. Give me a call and I can supply you with a few names, or maybe you want a Flatbed :)

    Always looking for a reason to head back to the home state.

    Victor Printing in Sharon, PA. should be able to do that for you. They are wholesale to the industry.
