What Do Our Customers Think?

Metalphoto® for Unmatched Durability and Graphic Capabilities

Our company name comes from Metalphoto photographic anodized aluminum, a proprietary metal substrate that gives our identification products unmatched durability and graphics capabilities. Metalphoto’s 3556 dpi, photographic resolution image offers graphic capabilities that other materials and printing methods simply cannot achieve.  Because the material is photographically imaged sub-surface rather than printed or painted or etched or engraved, the image combines photo quality capabilites with superior resistance to damage and degradation, even in extreme outdoor environments.

Great First Experience for A New Product Part

This was my first experience with Metalphoto of Cincinnati, MPC. End to end, a great experience. I had a custom stainless-steel plate made for a new product offering. Great communication, fast correction of design on first draft and met their delivery commitment. I will definitely be doing future business with MPC.
