"Received my order and I was astonished. I didn't expect to be getting such a amazing product. The metal was thick, the picture was very clear with vivid colors. The corners were slightly rounded and the method utilized to hang this picture was three block spacers to make the picture standout from the wall. The middle top block had slots for hanging and I was provided with a template to aid in hanging. Very pleased."
"Customer service is awesome, and so are the products...love Shutterfly!"
"Just beautiful color and clarity ! Very good quality and surprised to see the hanging hardware already attached to the back."
"This was the first time we ordered a print on metal. We were very happy with the finished product!"
"Turned out beautifully!"
Today, it's easier than ever to capture a memory or a stunning sight than ever before. With your smartphone or tablet, you can snap a photo in seconds. But then what happens to those images?
You may share them online through social media or save them to the cloud, but how often do you actually get to look at those old photos that you've taken? Turning old photos into metal prints allows you to hang those favorite pictures right on your wall, so you can enjoy them every day.
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.
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. To make the colors in your photos pop, you can choose the true color surface, which starts with a pure white base coat. Both surfaces options can be finished with a glossy or matte look to further customize your design.
Printing your photos onto metal only takes a few minutes. Start by selecting the format that you prefer. There are more than 90 options to choose from. Refine the options by type, size or number of photos. Have an idea for a design? You can upload your own and then personalize it. Once you have found the one that's right for you, click on "Personalize" to start making your masterpiece. Upload a photo. Add text if you wish. You can even add a background to a collage or cropped photo.
Photos on metal make great gifts for any occasion. Surprise the newlyweds with a photo from their big day preserved forever on metal or give grandparents a beautiful piece of art with favorite photos of the kids. Imagine how surprised your favorite amateur photographer would be to see that shot they're so proud of on a piece of metal that is ready to hang and will last a lifetime. If metal isn't quite right for that person on your shopping list, you can choose other wall art options like canvas or framed prints.
