    Anyone here ever printed their photo's on Aluminium? I have seen some fantastic results in a local marketplaace. I have even heard of people opening up a coke can to use for printing with a pass thru printer.

    Would be interested to learn where I can obtain some alloy sheets to print on.

    Thanks in anticipation.

    I did this via canvas press
    It comes out darker than expected, due to the fact that the white paper is now silver.... So I'd say brighten it up a touch more than you think
