Default Metal Prints?

I have been considering getting a night shot printed on metal, which I understand makes for a rather dramatic display. I was wondering if any of you have had such a print made and what your thoughts were on it?

Thanks,
Andre

Hello,

In France we have something named "Aluminium Dibond" that is quite dramtic in the printing. You can have an idea in there : http://www.darqroom.com/prints/alu-direct-mounting
They also do some magnetic display where you can change the content. You should find some in North America I suppose.

Jim, your link took me to metallic prints (on paper). Is that what you had done? I was thinking of prints on actual metal like the link from Renaud or this place:

http://bayphoto.com/metalprints/meta...d.htm#surfaces

They are rather expensive, but that was one reason I was asking how they turned out for anyone who's tried it. I noted that this bay photo place gives samples for $33, so I think I will do that and see what the result is. Maybe I'll send one to Troy, too

Thanks for the input, guys.

Andre

I guess I should have asked "actual metal surface or metallic printing?" like I originally thought before posting.

I've seen metal prints (in fact, just saw one hanging on a wall at a house I photographed this morning), but I don't know where they are produced. Metallic printing, as shown in my link, is pretty nice as well if you haven't seen those before.
