Andy, this size is $120.   I decided to go to a 24x36.   

 

Thanks all for the kind words on the photo.

Very quick turnaround from Costco, and great quality. Now I need to find a spot in the house with enough light to reveal the deeper tones.

I think it was worth it, and I will use them in the future. The clerk said Fuji was the lab.

Looks great!
I'll have to compare with Bay Photo and WHCC who do my work currently.

How is the surface finish?
And does it include stand offs?

I have used Nations Photo with good results but as they are local I have always picked up. They are a very large establishment :)

Love the pic!

Nice glossy surface finish, no blems. A 1" standoff frame on the back. I'm pretty pleased. Only thing I would do differently is to put a burn-dodge layer over the image to lighten up the darker areas and reduce the need for strong light on the print to see into areas of shadow.

Jackie, I just had it delivered to the local Costco. No shipping issues,

I was in Costco last week to proof a print for a local enivro group.  First time I noticed they are doing the metal prints so was intrigued.

I have only printed on metal one other time and it came out pretty dark so I am a little concerned about how to prep a file for this process.

Craggy, the burn dodge layer is one way to compensate for dark areas on a print.

It almost seemed to be a darkening of the metal print that required a global adjustment, just not sure how much.  After I get this current print proofed to my liking I may chat with the tech at our local Costco and see what her take is on going to metal. Might try a small one just for an experiment. Your print looks great by the way!

I put a small "art light" over my previous metal print and it would show acceptably for my own viewing but otherwise not something I would want to put out to the world.
