Stacked Metal!!!

The Lab Works is now offering Stacked Metal prints which is an exciting twist to our standard Vibrant Gloss Metal Prints. What a great way to feature your favorite images in a little different way.

What is Stacked Metal? Stacked Metal is a single metal print floating 1/2 inch on top of a larger metal print. These 2 metal prints are then mounted on a wood block which makes it float on the wall.

You have the option of choosing between using your own image or one of the designs we offer for your background image. You can order the Stacked Metal prints using our online software Roes.

What’s on your walls…

A number of years ago I had been traveling all day and it was 10.30 at night. I was in the basement of the old Winnipeg airport and I was waiting. Waiting for what I don’t remember, but waiting none-the-less. As I looked around the room there were large Black and White architectural prints on the wall of downtown Winnipeg. I was intrigued and began to explore the walls as I got lost in the images.


These were the messages that the images conveyed on the walls of this large room. I was in the basement of the Airport in the City of Winnipeg in the middle of winter, but at the same time I was not. I was exploring the city, my mind wondered where these images were taken. These were some of the ideas going through my head.  The arrivals area at any airport can; with images, set the tone for your reaction to a new city. It highlights the good, the exciting and the beautiful about the place you are about to explore.

Airports deal with arrivals and departures all the time and use images to set the tone of your experience. As people come and go from your office or business, what tone are you setting by what is on your walls.

CollageWall Display is here!

It goes like this:

Reality: You have a ton of great images and want to show them off in your home, cottage or office.

Problem: You are not a Photoshop expert or a graphic designer and your budget unfortunately does have a limit. How do you build a collage with your images, get them ready to hang, make it simple, AND on budget?

Solution: CollageWall Display is an all-in-one system that provides for a variety of collage designs where images are mounted to a 1/8″ inch masonite and completed with a ready-to-use hanging system. You are provided almost all the tools you need to hang your collage save for tape, a level (you could also eyeball it), and a drill if you have plaster walls. We even supply you with a drill bit.

From $33 you can start getting your images up on the wall! The collage configurations are almost endless. Order on-line with ROES and never miss an opportunity to show off your images!

Obviously, you will expect nothing but the best from The Lab Works. Everything is printed right here on the Kodak Premier Lustre paper and then mounted in-house by none-other-than Rooth.

For something different, you also have the option to have images metal printed. Once your first collage has been created, you can switch it up with new images, different sizes, add or subtract images, or mix and match metal with lustre prints!

Go here to read more or find CollageWall Display in our ROES catalog to see the many different configuration options.

Have fun!
