Q: Why do you only print on metal?
A: We exclusively print on metal because it offers exceptional durability, visual impact, and long-lasting quality. Metal prints are resistant to fading, scratches, and moisture, ensuring your custom stories stand the test of time. The reflective surface of metal adds depth and dimensionality, enhancing the colors, details, and contrasts for captivating visuals. With their superior quality, metal prints become cherished heirlooms that preserve your child's accomplishments for generations to come.

Q: Do I need to frame the metal print?
A: No, framing is not necessary for our metal prints. They come ready to display with a sleek, modern appearance. The metal itself acts as a sturdy backing, providing support and protection. By eliminating the need for framing, our metal prints offer a clean and contemporary presentation, allowing the focus to remain on the captivating imagery and your child's extraordinary story.

Q: Can I add an attachment to the back of my print?
A: Yes, once you add the size to your cart, you can add an attachment option. Adding the attachment to your metal print makes it easy for hanging on the wall. It depends on how you plan to display your print if a backing attachment is needed.
