- Artbeat Studios Metal Print Review
Just a few weeks ago, I ordered a 16x24 metal print from Artbeat Studios. I ordered the print as part of an upcoming under-$100 metal print shootout that will compare multiple metal prints in a head-to-head format.
Full disclosure: I’ve ordered metal prints from Artbeat Studios before. Those prints were beautifully made, and my expectations going into this is that this test print would be equally as beautiful.
But did Artbeat Studios come through?
In this review, I’ll offer my thoughts on the quality of the print, from the image quality and detail to the mounting hardware to how well Artbeat Studios did with accommodating my printing needs.

About Artbeat Studios
Artbeat Studios was founded on the principle that you can create beautiful prints while providing good prices and top-notch customer service.
Rather than some other printers that focus on speed and quantity with little attention paid to details, Artbeat Studios seeks to perfect the art of printing wall art prints, that way you get the best-quality product for your dollar.
Artbeat Studios has followed this philosophy throughout their more than 5 years in the business. The owners have a combined experience of 40+ years in the printing business during which they have perfected their approach to printing, color matching, and color editing. Likewise, they’ve devoted themselves to building relationships with each and every customer.

Artbeat Studios Products
Unlike many companies in this space, Artbeat Studios focuses only on wall art prints. This is in an effort to do one thing and do it well, rather than spreading their time, energy, and resources across a vast product line.
There is a nice selection of wall art prints, from metal prints like the one I ordered to acrylic, metallic canvas, traditional canvas, and paper prints.
No matter the type of print, you can choose from a wide range of sizes, including custom dimensions to fit your specific needs.

Artbeat Studios Metal Print Review
As I noted earlier, I ordered the print you see above as part of my upcoming $100 metal print shootout.
Having ordered prints from Artbeat Studios before, I knew what to expect. The question was whether those expectations would be met.
The first thing I want to review is how this print feels.
I often associate weight and heft with the quality of a product. I’ve spoken about this with my Peter McKinnon Nomatic camera pack - it’s a big, heavy bag that looks fantastic and is extremely well built. This same concept can be applied to luxury cars - there’s a difference in how the door of a Rolls Royce feels as you open and close it than a door on a Smart Car.
When I took my Artbeat Studios metal print out of the packaging, the weight of it was fantastic. Don’t get me wrong - it’s not like I had to strain to pick the thing up. But it has a weight to it that the majority of the other metal prints in the metal print shootout simply do not have.
The print itself is really quite fantastic. They use Chromaluxe® brand HD aluminum sheets which is the highest quality on the market, guaranteed to resist fading for 65+ years. The color accuracy is absolutely spot on. Where other companies add different tones to the shot, Artbeat Studios printed it just as I wanted. The color is so good that I’d rate it as a 9 out of 10.
The detail and resolution of the print is fantastic as well. Where some of the prints I ordered from other companies lacked detail in the cave walls and the foreground, this print nailed it. I’d rate the detail of this print as 9.5 out of 10.
If you’ve read any of my other metal print reviews in this series, you know that I included an obscenely large signature on the original print to see which companies would take measures to correct the problem. Artbeat Studios did just that. The signature is sharp, detailed, and an appropriate size for the print.
Where a lot of the weight of this print comes from is from the mounting hardware.
If you look at the photo above, you can see, the mounting piece is well-constructed and solidly attached to the back of the print.
This mounting piece is made of wood and has options for vertical or horizontal hanging. I’m a stickler for mounting hardware being centered and level, and Artbeat Studios delivered on both fronts.
Here’s a quick breakdown of the costs of this print:
Print: $97.04 (with a 20% off coupon)
In all honesty, this article was supposed to be published yesterday, but I had to spend more time trying to come up with negatives about this print. After all, this review needs to be fair and balanced.
But I simply can’t find any faults with the print itself. I will say, though, that based on some of the older online reviews, shipping times have been a point of contention in the past for some customers.
However, I didn’t experience this at all. In fact, my Artbeat Studios metal print was among the first to arrive for the metal print shootout, so at least in my experience, the shipping issue seems to have been resolved. Overall this print was definitely one of the highest quality metal prints I have reviewed.
I’ll have more details on my Artbeat Studios metal print review in the metal print shootout later on, so keep your eyes peeled for that head-to-head battle!
