Aluminum Match Box Covers Show Creative Versatility

Commonly asked questions about our products involve processes, colors and a combination of the two. Over the years, we have used our aluminum matchboxes to help illustrate the endless options when working on aluminum. 

The matchboxes utilize standard processes such as brushing, lithography, screening and embossing to create dramatically different designs. Whether inspired by art deco gates or Victorian patterns they all rely on a layering of processes to create textures and interactive surfaces. You'll find designs ranging from patina or mixed metal to vintage reproductions or whimsical prints.
