"I bought them as gifts and everyone loves their metal print."
"Great product and arrived quickly. Once I saw the quality of the metal print, I ordered 2 different ones. Think shipping charges are outrageous, as usual, from Shutterfly, but would still recommend this product."
"I really like this product. The construction is solid, and the colors look great. I also like the "artsy" flair that the filmstrip inset lends the product because we used it for a senior picture collage for an "artsy" kid. In addition, Shutterfly really went above and beyond to provide us great customer service in making sure we were happy customers. Great experience, and classy addition to our decor!"
"LOVE the metal wall art made from my photos! Really, I was afraid the coloring wouldn't be good when applied on metal; but the colors are fantastic. I purchased one 16x20 and I loved it so much I ordered another 16x16. These metal wall photos are the best Shutterfly purchase I've made (so far)."
"I recently got engaged and I was lucky enough to have a photographer to take pictures. I ordered 3 to show the progress of the proposal, they are perfect. Everyone that walks in my house always comment on how awesome they look! The best part is they are easy to hang!"

Metal prints are high-definition photos on metal panels that are .45 inch thick and rounded at the corners. With no frame required, the prints have a sleek, clean look that is ultra modern and allows all of the attention to be on the subject of your photo. The prints are also free of glass, eliminating worries of breakage if you ever move or if you like to rotate wall art and plan to store your prints during part of the year. A handy hanger is attached to the back, making mounting the prints on the wall quick and simple. Read our guide on how to hang metal wall art.
When purchasing metal prints, you will have a choice of two different finishes. The brushed metal surface starts with a silver basecoat that shows through the final image, muting the colors and adding an elegant metallic tone.

Both surfaces options can be finished with a glossy or matte look to further customize your design.A Masterpiece in Minutes
