"Purchase: 24x36 True Color Glossy Metal Print. Absolutely spectacular. Uploaded image was about ~33 Mpixels ( 4676 x 7039 ). Shutterfly downsampled this to about 8 Mpixels (2338x3520). This is about 98 dpi. The print is spectacular. In normal lighting (full daylight or bright office lighting) the metal print almost looks like the image is being displayed on a 24x36 inch computer monitor screen. In fact, that may be a good way to preview your image before sending it on. One thing: since a 24x36 metal print is fairly expensive, it's important that you choose a photograph with a full 2338x3520 pixels or more in it to get the full value of the metal print. Re-check that photo you've selected has the subject in focus. You can, of course, select landscape or portrait and preview that to be sure the image will fill the 24x36 size completely. In my case, I selected landscape and also ignored the text boxes since I only wanted a lovely image. The print has foam adhered to the back to make it easy to mount without a frame, which I prefer. The print is substantial, but not heavy (less than a typical framed image). It comes with a paper template to drill and mount two screws to hang the print. It is shipped in durable packaging and I have received two prints with no damage on the packaging. Shutterfly is very good about making sure you are satisfied - if the print has any defects which detract from the image, like chips around the edges with no ink, or any flaws in the metal surface, they will most likely replace it if you document the problem and send an email to customer service. In my case, I had a small metal kink which created an optical ripple. The ripple was too big to mask with a frame and Shutterfly reprinted the image and sent it again at no additional cost. Our print has a very large, deep black border with copper, gold, and aluminum tones in the subject. The ink "soaks up" dramatic white LED lighting for effects... Highly recommended !"
"I ordered two; they both look great on my wall along side some others purchased from a professional photographer!"
"I have a huge wall in my living room and haven't been able to find anything that I wanted to hang there. I decided to put our family picture on a metal. I was nervous about how the colors would come out but it turned out fantastic! I can't wait to hang it up!"

"I created an image and wasn't sure if the resolution was good enough. The final product exceeded my expectations"
