"I am thrilled with the quality of the home sweet home metal wall art that my sister and I created with shutterfly. It is several photos of my two friends on metal that can be hung on a wall at their new second home. I know they will love it. Everything was perfect from creation to shipment. Happy with the price too."

"This is a tiny 100+ year old partially-hand-colored family photo (oddly sized, probably about 3X7) that I scanned at 600 dpi, digitally restored and color-corrected using a great program called Recolored (time-consuming and tricky until you get the hang of it, but the results are phenomenal), and my efforts yielded a true work of art. Through Shutterfly I've had it printed on metal, paper, plastic (the padded cover of a family photo book), and woven into a blanket (the original photo is taped to the blanket in the picture below to give an idea of how much it was blown up).
I had to saturate the color on the blanket so it wouldn't turn out too dark; the paper prints (on various stock) all look oversaturated although they're not; and the plastic book cover looks good... but there's absolutely no question that the metal print turned out the best. The details are clearly defined, the colors are properly saturated and really pop, and the glossy finish adds a nice sheen to the photograph (though it's SO glassy that I wonder if the matte finish would've looked better).
My only complaint is the hanging apparatus - I bought this as a birthday present for my mom to hang over her mantle. The larger aluminum prints require two nails/screws, which is totally unnecessary given the light weight. Shutterfly provides a cardboard plate to drive the nails through so they're properly placed, but it was still a difficult feat going into brick and mortar - it would've been nice if I could have used the single nail that was already there for the heavier wooden-frame photo that I replaced. Annoyingly, I wound up chipping the paint on the bottom setting it on the fireplace while trying to get the nails even, which never would have happened if it required a single nail (and/or had I not scraped it on brick).
The hefty price tag on the metal prints is certainly off-putting but from what I've seen this is the best that Shutterfly has to offer. Aluminum is easy to clean and doesn't rust, so "

"I cannot fully express just how much I love this! I made it using some of my favorite photos from our wedding and wow. It looks so amazing. The colors really pop and the printing is flawless. I am so in love with how it turned out on the metal, that I am logged in right now to order more. You will not be disappointed if your order this!"
June 1, 2014Fantastic Product / Incredible Customer Service
"I ordered a 2'x 3' metal wall art print and it was absolutely perfect. Perfect resolution and color. However, it was damaged in shipping. Since it came with a 100% satisfaction guarantee I called customer service. It was as pleasant an experience as it could have possibly been. They quickly and efficiently replaced the print and in my case I only had to e-mail photos of the damage and did not have to go through returning the package. The representative even asked me if it was a gift or something that was time sensitive as they were willing to express ship the item.
I have been a Shutterfly customer for many years and have used them exclusively for all my print work and merchandise.
I know that reviews are most used to review the actual item, but I felt it was imperative that everyone who orders know that if there is a problem it will be dealt with in a respectful and caring way. Personally I think that is just as important as the finished product."

"this is a great idea to combine your favorite pictures in one "frame". Not only is it different then just an ordinary frame, it is sleek and stylish. My only reason for not making it a 5 star product is that some of the pictures aren't as clearly printed and the tint is slightly reddish."
