    I want to have some large prints done and Adorama is running a sale on Kodak Professional Endura Metallic paper. $3 for an 11x14 was pretty good I thought.

    Most of my prints will be of landscapes and a few animals and maybe one or two people shots.

    Any comments on the look, feel and quality of this type of paper is appreciated. Sale ends tomorrow, December 31, so a quick response is even more appreciated.

    The paper's amazing. It's what I use for all my landscape shots.

    How does metallic paper look under glass? I'm thinking of having some metallic prints made but I'm wondering if I should maybe have them mounted and hung bare rather than put them into a frame.

    I think they look great. I've got a couple portraits I've done printed on metallic that I framed under glass and a couple of art shots (close-ups of guitars) that look really good. You will run into some viewing angle issues with metallic prints with or without glass, but the glass accents the problem a bit.

    If there are large areas of black in the image, bare-hung images will show dust/etc like crazy, though (fingerprints show up brilliantly, unfortunately).

    Cheers, Rufus. I was worried about the fingerprints actually. Break out the white gloves.

    Yeah, Big Mike.... $3 a pop wasn't a concern, but I was thinking about a bulk prepaid package that runs $50.

    Sorry for the quick bump, but with 135 members on atm, one or two more opinions might be made.

    I'm not sure if it's the same kind, but the prints I've been getting on metallic paper kick butt.

    Thanks abraxas.

    I went ahead and pulled the trigger for the prepaid package. Wound getting 18 11x14 metallics for $49.95.

    Watch this space.

    ^^ cool. Now I have to resize all my files to 11x14 rather than 4x6. Just another cog to contend with..... no big deal.
