Has anyone here used Costco for metal prints?   The prices seem reasonable, but I have never used them for any of my images.

 

A 16x20 is $54...

I have not, I have used them for canvas if I needed one quick. Would love to hear your thoughts on this if you do use them for metal prints, I print most of my big stuff on metal now.

One thing that is in their favor is the 100% guarantee. I guess there is nothing to lose except time. What I didn't check on was mounts and wall stand offs.

What part of Oregon are you in?

When i'm not in SW Montana, I am in the Albany/Corvallis area. Wife works at OSU. When I leave MT to go to OR, most time I get on Highway 20 in West Yellowstone, and get off of it in N Albany(about 2miles from the house).

We are usually in Canby or Rockaway. One of these days I'm going to have to try that route to Yellowstone.

I'll have feedback on the quality of the metal prints in a week or so.   I just ordered a 24x36 of this one...

I like this, should look good on metal.

The drive I mentioned is pretty relaxing. Its about the same distance as taking the interstate. More to see imo.

For fifty bucks, and 100% guarantee, you've got to give it a go.

Sweet image, with tremendous atmospherics and overall glow.  T
