    online metal print services

    Anyone have any recommendation from your use?

    Looking for good quality (no defects/scratches, no surprises with color) and efficient turnaround. Cost not a top priority.


    Previous place that did them for me took about two months which was not ideal.

    Thanks

    I've used Bay Photo twice, once for a digital color image and once for a scan from B&W film. The color one came out with deep saturation and correct color. The B&W had good, solid blacks and did not lose the highlights. They were quick too, and the pieces came in well-designed boxes. I plan to send more to them in the future.

    This is Bay Photo on aluminum

    Seems very durable, now 6 years old, never needs dusting

    I post this now and then...I like it, as I often went there and met people from all over the world, by just sitting down

    I have used Adorma's Printique service a couple times for metal prints

    the results are very nice and seem durable

    Thanks. This is a milky way photo my 15yo daughter made and it's selected to be in the Maine Photography Show.

    Following the recommendations, I ordered and have received my order from Bay Photo.. I have not unwrapped it to pixel peep yet, but the colors look great and as expected, and it was nicely packaged as shown.
    Basically strapped into a box/tray inside of a box with plenty of room around the edges for errant forklift forks and ambitious unboxers.
