Kinda interesting, was curious what metal prints looked like so ordered a set, you can’t really tell from photo but the colors actually look metallic, Mars is copperish and lots of silver tones in Jupiter and Saturn , I may have to try again with some moon shots because it is unique, I don’t think I would select this if I were wanting details though , it’s highly reflective and changes at different angles

Looks great! I just got a metal print done recently of M42 and I love it. The colors really pop and it looks almost 3D

Looks great! However most of the places I found deliver these expensively... Do you have recommended vendors?

I ordered mine from printerpix, read reviews after advising against it but they look ok, it was somewhere around 25 for a 4 pak of 8x8, but yeah they are super expensive at most places.... I just wanted to experiment as cheap as I could

I got mine from Artbeat Studios. They specialize in metal and acrylic prints but also do regular paper and metallic paper as well. From what I've seen so far their quality is great. The price for a 30x20 metal print like mine is $123

Thanks! I bought a couple of small remote controlled LED display lights and mounted them on the ceiling above the print. They really help highlight all the detail and don't show any glare off the glossy surface.
