I am currently having my images printed on metal (aluminum) which is a relatively recent technique that looks absolutely fabulous, are durable, lightweight, don't fade and come ready to hang on the wall saving you matting and framing costs. They are printed at the prestigious photo lab Digital Grange in Petaluma.They come shipped to your door. I've included a link below to some of my favorite images (although any picture of mine is available). Currently I'm only making 2 sizes: 18"x24" and 20"x30". The price is $500. plus the cost of production and a nominal shipping charge. If you're interested please call me to discuss: 415 731-4385 or email: email@example.com
