As for the quality of the prints directly on metal: These are very highly dependent on the lighting under which they will be displayed. Under dim, diffuse ambient lighting they will be lifeless and simply not look good. Under museum-style spotlights they will look fantastic.
Doesn't the depend on the finish of the metal print? . I mean, you can order printed-on-aluminum prints in matte, glossy, or semi-gloss finishes, as well as specialized finishes such as brushed aluminum.
They are really not a whole heck of a lot different than paper, inasmuch as you can get so many different finish options, and the finish will depend what lighting is best, what images will look best with any given finish, etc.
I use AdoramaPix for metal prints because they are the best value, especially when they run their 25% off everything or 35% off everything sales. . And of course there is always free shipping with AdoramaPix.
My only problem with them ("them" being AdoramaPix) is that they only go up to 36" for the metal prints, and I often want 48" prints.....in which case I then am forced to go elsewhere and pay higher prices, and not have as many options with the finishes. . Which sucks. . I've written to the people who run AdoramaPix time and time again, begging them to offer bigger prints, but they never do anything about it.
"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
