No, not the Photoshop guru or the intimidating football player. (although both would come in handy to have around!)
What I'm desperate for is one of those fabulous metal prints that Scott Kelby is so proudly displaying.
Metal prints seem to be all the rage right now in the photog biz. I love scouting for cool and unexpected products to display photographs and this metal option is my newest obsession.
The photographs are printed on aluminum and there's lots of options for the finishes such as high gloss, satin, white aluminum, brushed and more. I got the sample pak from ImageWizards, which is where Mr. Kelby's photo was from, and it's pretty snazzy. They included 4 small samples with different finishes and I was surprised at how different the same picture looked using the different options. The colors were amazing in all of them and seemed to have a glow about it.
The budget doesn't quite allow for a metal print just yet, Image Wizards is pretty expensive in my opinion but I was trying to decide which picture I would choose if I could have one for myself. I think I would print this one of Wild Child, I love the colors and think it would really show off the glow of the metal~
I've tossed around the idea of doing some trade shows this year and thought if I had a print done for display I'd probably use one of these to make the colors pop~
Image Wizards aren't the only printer that does the metal, but they're the only ones I have samples from. Bayphoto.com has a great selection of metal products and they're pretty affordable too. They've also got these cool photo dog tags that I would love to try out:
And they have the floating metal prints with a print on a print:
I just love it all!!
So here's my question to you:
Has anyone ordered any of these metal prints?
If so, where did you order it from and do you think it's just the coolest thing?
If you haven't ordered but know of some other great places for metal stuff pass along the info ~ I wanna know!!
