as Corel Photopaint or Adobe Photoshop. Also, keep in mind that
the natural wood color will distort colors toward the yellow/brown
spectrum. However, people should expect this since it's maple.
Curved Metal: ChromaLuxe metal should be part of your product
offering because of its popularity. One of the easiest ways to add
even more value to a small metal panel is to turn it into a curved,
self-standing award that can be displayed on a desk or nightstand.
Since a tabletop award can be viewed from both sides, you can use
the double-sided version of ChromaLuxe (4 " x 16 " panoramic, 5 " x
7 " , 6 " x 8 " and 11 " x 14 " ) to provide decorating options that include
an individual player's photo on the front with the team's photo on the
back, or a photo on the front with unlimited text options on the back.
Once imaged, a column roller can be used to gently curve the
photo panels into a " C " or " S " shape. Some decorators may not have
a roller and can improvise by curving the metal by hand. To curve
the metal, place it on top of a large roll of paper and hand curve it
once for a " C " or hand curve half of the metal, then flip and hand
curve the other section for an " S " . Now you have a high-value,
self-standing ChromaLuxe metal award.
Stacked Metal: Another way to add value to sublimation metal
is to stack a smaller piece of imaged aluminum on top of a larger
piece. Sublimate the larger piece with an appropriate background
image and place your foreground photo on the smaller piece. Then,
using a spacer block, mount the smaller piece of metal onto the
larger piece. This approach produces a stunning display award at
little additional cost.
Decorating options include multiple layers featuring a larger background
piece with multiple foreground pieces. You also could vary
the types of metal by having a matte background finish and a glossy
foreground finish. This stacked-metal approach - sometimes called
3-D aluminum - is a standard offering in many photo gift shops
and works incredibly well as high-value award plaques.
Textured Hardboard & Aluminum: ChromaLuxe recently added
an exciting new textured option to its hardboard and aluminum
photo panels. Contrasting the typically ultra-smooth style, the new
textured finish provides a unique tactile feel. The new surface provides
an alternative look and depth while maintaining the durability
and features that are synonymous with the ChromaLuxe name.
These glare-free, fingerprint-resistant panels are ideal for desktop

and wall-art applications, and are offered in a wide variety of precut
sizes. The single-sided, textured panels can be decorated using
a standard sublimation printer and flat heat press.
Glass: Available in two styles (0.2-inch-thick glass with 0.5inch
beveled edge and square corners or 0.13-inch-thick flat glass
with 0.125-inch radius corners), ColorLyte glass photo panels are
an elegant and frameless way to display photographs or awards on
a shelf, desk or wall. The tempered-glass photo panels give depth
and brilliance to transferred images, while the white imprintable
coating on the back provides image clarity and color reproduction
that includes bright whites and deep blacks.
ColorLyte beveled glass photo panels are available in 5 " x 7 " and
8 " x 10 " sizes, and can be displayed upright using available slotted
acrylic feet. The ColorLyte flat glass photo panels, available in 5 " x 7 " ,
8 " x 10 " , 11 " x 14 " , 12 " x 18 " , 16 " x 20 " , 16 " x 24 " and 20 " x 30 " sizes,
have the option of being wall mounted using edge-grip standoffs. 
