"I recently returned from a trip to Alaska and visited the Glacier Gardens Rainforest in Juneau. I took some fantastic pictures there. I am by no means an experienced photographer but some of my pictures really stood out. I have purchased regular prints from Shutterfly many times. While in Alaska at an art fair I noticed some of the artists had their pictures on metal and the colors were fantastic and so were the prices. When I returned home I went though all 500+ pictures I had taken. Lucky for me Shutterfly had 50% off their metal and canvas prints and since I had never ordered either of that type I thought this was the time. I am soooooooo very pleased with my metal and canvas 16 x 20 prints. Friends and family also admire them and ask where I got them."
"These are the best metal prints around. I have ordered metal prints from several different companies and the quality from Shutterfly is by far the best. You really do get what you pay for. The first metal print I got from Shutterfly was the True Color Matte which I loved. Recently I was placing an order at 1:30AM EST because a sale was ending and I accidentally ordered the True Color Glossy. I am so glad I did the Glossy is absolutely beautiful. I didn't order Glossy before because of some of the reviews but in my opinion it is more stunning than the Matte. I always order True Color because I am a stickler at getting my colors perfect in Photoshop so Brushed Metal will never work for me. I am sure like everything else Shutterfly does it is done well. The thickness and durability of Shutterfly metal prints far surpasses most of the other companies I have ordered from."
"I bought this for my MIL, she loved it! Its now sitting on the counter in her kitchen, great quality!"
"I ordered a 20x30 True Color metal print in the gloss finish. When it arrived I was extremely pleased with the print quality and color spectrum."
"Good product. Not as vivid as I was hoping for. I could have adjusted colors myself in Photoshop. I'm happy I was able to buy this product on sale. Overall I'm happy with the print."
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.
