Aluminyze Review, Discount Code, & Giveaway

55 Flares 55 Flares ×

Throughout Randy’s photography career we’ve ordered pictures in many different mediums, from canvas wraps, on glass, on metal and even on metallic paper.  While we have always been pleased with these pictures from many different sources, we are always on the lookout for a totally unique look.

When Tésa asked if we wanted to review a picture done on Aluminyze, as I always do, I first looked at their website.

AluminyzeWe were impressed to read that the picture is infused into a sheet of aluminum. The example pictures on their website also looked pretty amazing. I scrolled down and read the media and customer reactions as well as the Showcase Page on Aluminyze that features in-depth comments from previous customers. Then I decided to check out a couple of blog reviews. The bloggers raved about Aluminyze saying the color in their pictures were like nothing they had seen before. We were excited to give it a try.

AluminyzeThe most difficult part of the entire ordering process was trying to decide between the thousands of pictures Randy has taken. Our final choice was a photo of a boat on Lake Michigan as the fog was rolling in. We thought the red of the boat cover was eye catching.

Our first step in Aluminyze was to select a shape from many options: rectangles, hearts, ovals, designer shapes, and letters to name just a few.

Next we selected a size. They have a really nice feature that each size tells you how many pixels the picture has to have in order for it to appear correctly in the printed work.

Then we uploaded the photo, which only took a couple of minutes.

Following that we had a choice of mounts: black edge, white edge, or none.  We choose none.

Next was type of surface; white or silver.  Each type is described with a list of recommended photos. We choose silver.

Our last decision was what type of finish we wanted:  glossy or matte. We choose glossy.

A very nice feature is that before you checkout an estimated arrival date is posted.

A little more than a week later our picture was sitting on our porch. After we opened it our mouths dropped open.

Aluminyze Photo ReviewWe expected from the reviews the picture to be outstanding, but never did we expect the brilliance of color and the eye-popping detail. We loved it so much that we wrapped it up and took it with us to Cleveland to show Tésa and Dave. We have never done that with a picture before.

Aluminyze ReviewsThey liked it so much, they tried very hard to talk us into leaving it with them!

Here’s a quick video to give you another look at it. You can see how the photo goes right to the edge and how bright the colors are.

The best recommendation for any company are reorders and we have already picked out and placed our next Aluminyzed photos. from Aluminyze. We can’t wait for their arrival!

About Tired Grandma Judy

Hi! My name is Judy and I’m a proud Grandma of four. With 3 granddaughters and 1 grandson, I spend a lot of time as a happy babysitter. I absolutely love being a grandmother and my grandchildren growing up in Ohio and Michigan, I spend a lot of time on the road, on the phone, and traveling. I"m happy to be aboard here at 2 Wired 2 Tired where I enjoy dabbling in food blogging, reviewing products for grandparents, and sharing our trip reviews.

One of my best photos is of a small, weathered boat in the evening light near a stone wharf, and I’d love to see what it would look like with the Aluminyze treatment.
