About the photo:
Tampa Bay, FL
The Iconic Tampa Bay Theater is a local staple in Tampa. Its grandeur has stood the test of time and is known far and wide. It was designed and built in 1926 by a Chicago architect which explains the shining lights that frame "Tampa".
in 1973 the building was scheduled to be demolished but the people came together to protect this beautiful building and later placed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
Today the theater is run by a non-profit and is one of the most used venues of its kind in Tampa.
An iconic piece of history I had to capture.
Images are infused into specially coated surfaces, providing the most durable and longest lasting print medium. The aluminum panels are extremely durable, offering scratch and abrasion resistance without hiding your image behind glass. Sublimation metal also offers the highest fade resistance compared to every other photo medium.
Dye-sublimation printing is a computer printing technique which uses heat to transfer dye onto many materials. In order to transfer the image from the paper to the aluminum, it requires a heat press process that is a combination of time, temperature and pressure. The heat press applies this special combination, to “transfer” the sublimation dyes at the molecular level into the aluminum.
The images are fade resistant- the latest testing shows they will last a lifetime with resistance to yellowing and climate damage. They are chemical resistant- the surfaces can be cleaned with ammonia, bleach, acetone or any all-purpose cleaner. The images are also moisture resistant.
The aluminum is .045" thick and is finished with a float mount on the back for hanging. The Aluminum panels are lightweight, durable, and made with recycled material and 100% recyclable.
