    El-Co Color Labs does the same thing much cheaper, and they make excellent quality prints.

    They also print posters, do metallic posters, and offer quantity discounts on normal sized prints (minimum order of 5 prints). I can get 5 - 10x15" prints for $1.65 each.

    For most of their stuff they use an actual optical printer, and develop in RA-4. I think the canvas prints are ink though, but everything I have ever ordered from them has exceeded expectations by a long shot.

    yeah, i remembered that picture from a past thread. that convinced me to go with them even though they are on the wrong coast. i am moving into a new place this week and i am going to mount mine up on some foam core.
     

  13. I was getting ready to place an order with them for a couple 24x30's for a wedding this weekend. What's their turn around time? I think I'm fucked, I need the shit by saturday!!!!!!!! :noes:

    its printed on kodak endura metallic, its pretty sweet, but I haven't seena print of a person yet. I'm not sure how that would turn out. Looks like it was printed on a metal glossy board, super saturated, though limited colors, and more blown highlights it seems, but I haven't tested it yet.
     

  16. Is this what it is or is the metal just the frames? If this was it that'd be hot I'd definately get this :bowdown:

    no, but thats tight. Its just a funky glossy paper. Very different than normal, but not made on actual metal.
