Two days ago I ordered a few prints off my website just to test the process and to make sure I was happy the ordering, packaging, shipping process. I ordered these on Tuesday, and had order shipping confirmations by the end of the day with tracking numbers.
The following day I received the one Metal print that I ordered. This is a 12x12 of the glass blocks that I had made. If you have not seen an image printed on metal, they are very cool. The print is actually printed on a piece of aluminum. It gives a depth and richness to the photo that is just not achieved on paper. Here is photo of the back and the metal print, the unboxing and then hanging on the wall. Another nice thing about these is they do not need a frame to hang on the wall. They look like a gallery piece right out of the box.
The rest of what I ordered came in today, which was two days after the order was placed. All of these are printed on the metallic paper. I had never printed on that media before. I was blown away by the sharpness and color reproduction. It really makes the colors pop, and brings the details out on the bricks and textures in these images.
1st batch of photos
The above are the photos taken with my cell phone. You just have to see these to appreciate the quality of these prints. Below are the photos which are linked to the pages you can find them on.
I ordered a batch of panos that I had promised someone. Class tag pano
I ordered a group of 6x9's of the front of the building for someone else. This one is absolutely incredible on the metallic paper.... I would highly recommend at least the 6x9 if not the 8x12 on this one.
I ordered this 8x12 Black and White for another person. This one is printed on a special black and white specific paper. Very nice and sharp with great contrast.
The for myself and 8x12 of "the bear" and a 4x6 of the "wrecking crew" on the roof, and the JMHS in lights. All also printed on the metallic paper.
Like I said I ordered this batch to test the system out since this is a new website and fulfillment service for me. The labs I am using are among the best available. The lab is located in Kansas. The Metal print arrived overnight via Fedex and the prints arrived in two days via USPS priority mail. The packaging was excellent, as well as the email communication. I have no hesitation in telling you that you will be pleased with any prints you are wanting to purchase.
Also wanted to make sure you guys understand that the watermark is not on your final print, as I have had that question a couple of times.
