I am currently having my images printed on metal (aluminum) which is a relatively recent technique that looks absolutely fabulous, are durable, don't fade and come ready to hang on the wall saving you matting and framing costs. Printing is through 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 images from any of the galleries are 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.
