    This was my first time printing on metal (also my first time printing large-ish. 16x42)
    I have my monitor calibrated to their printer profiles, and I did an 8x10 test print for color and sharpness.

    I couldn't find many reviews on these, so I was a little nervous during the wait- DH picked it up for me last night though, and I am quite pleased with the result!

    Looks exactly how I envisioned it!

    Cant ask for anymore than that, right?! (well, I suppose theres also longevity, durability and price point. But 2 of those will be time tested- I guess well have to wait and see.)

    Looks great.
    Hopefully it will last. I am also going to be trying a metal print from Costco soon.

    Very nice! Looks identical to your original. Didn't know Costco did metal prints.

    Is there going to be a Snowy hanging on your wall in the near future?

    I’ve gotten 4-5 metal prints with floating wall mount from Adorama pix and have been very impressed.

    Good to see that Costco is also putting out decent quality.

    I just received my 16X20 metal print and I have to agree that the quality was better than expected.
    Attached are crappy cel pics and the original file at the end.
    The metal print looks sharp with great colour representation.

    I need to do this soon. I love the Secret Santa print on metal that I got from @waday

    A. Do you have to be a Costco member? We use BJ’s Wholsale instead...I don’t think they do metal prints but will investigate.
