    Does metallic paper work well for portraits? I don't think it would work well in that scenario..

    I had a couple of those done on metallic paper.

    Mpix does them. Pricey though.

    I have some shots done on metallic I got through Adorama. Pricing was good, quality is top notch. Dunno that I'll use anything but metallic from now on.

    I'm in love with matte lamination from Millers. Unreal.

    Metallic is also baller as hell. I'm always pushing people to get that

    metallic from mpix is fucking crazy. looks so good, especially on portraits & stuff with lots of contrast.

    you can see how the matte doesn't reflect any light really, the glossy has some "tooth" to it, and the metallic is just pure gloss, no tooth, perfectly smooth. It'll show finger prints, but can be cleaned. It'll chip, but the ink won't run off
