I really need to try out their Metal Prints, but they are so expensive. I keep waiting for the "right" photo to get one of :D

Α 12x18 print in metallic paper mounted in 2 mm black styrene and protected by laminate ($8.70) is $25 shipped. How much less do you want it to be? :-D If you skip the laminate is around $17...

Metallic paper is amazing (I have done the much more expensive printing on aluminum and I like the metallic paper better).

Not metal paper. The ones actually printed on metal.

I also use Bayphoto exclusively. I am telling you that the metallic paper print (with the plastic laminate) is equal or better than the print on metal. It has more depth and when the light hits it squarely, it absolutely glows :-D.

I had a 11x14 done on aluminum. Mounted it cost a hundred bucks. I had 4 12x18s mouned for the same price in metallic paper (and they all look stunning :-D).

I have experimented a bit (and at a cost) with printed/mounted photos. I had a 24x36 printed on pearl paper and mounted BEHIND plexiglass (just over $300 and not done at Bayphoto). It gives it a remarkable liquid quality, a gorgeous photo, but I will not do it again... Way too expensive and for that size they had to re-do it 3 times (bubbles in the final mounting).

Cool, I'll try the metallic paper first, sounds like the only advantage to doing it on actual metal is if you needed it to be somewhat weather/water proof :)

I print through BayPhoto exclusively except for my smaller personal prints.

I had it done on metallic paper for these and it's awesome (first time using it). The water is liquid still!

Total for these (one 11x14 and one 16x20) was about $30 -- no mounting since I got frames for it.

Hence the plastic laminate for protection. You can actually mount it on a frame with matting and no glass!

Here is what I am talking about the light hitting it right. This was off-camera-flash from camera right. You can judge the angle by the shadows of the figurines below.

The dahlia (lower right photo) is hit right, the others less so...

I wish I had had them offset from the wall... Bayphoto can do this...-?

EDIT: CJ, I saw yours after I posted. You had experience with metal prints before, didn't you? How do they compare with the metallic paper prints for your photographic style?

Yeah, I honestly hate framing photos due to the glass/glare. I have tons of printed photos in my office but they are just stuck to the wall right from the printer :) I've done the acrylic thing before and really liked that.

Every time I put a photo in a frame behind glass, the effect is lost IMO.

Also my wife decided to test out a new laminator by laminating one of my photos on the wall, she thought she was doing me a favor, but she ruined it by adding unwanted glare!

There is special, anti-glare (plastic) glass that we use in all our framed photos. Expensive...

My pet peeve is how expensive matting is! I can print reasonable photos, either through Bayphoto, or my inkjet printer. I can get compatible (to my other photos) frames from the Internet. The matting is tens of dollars!

On another subject, as you know I am using Linux at home and I am very happy with the photography related programs (GIMP and Darktable, equivalent to PS and LR respectively). The only drawback is that they are slow to match new things from Canon.

I recently discovered Lens Correction for my EF 24-70 MkII and I am over the moon!:-D This lens is remarkable, but vignettes quite a bit uncorrected. My 60D and 5DIII do not have the correction profiles (anyway, I am not sure they apply to RAW), so today, I found out that profiles now exist for all my lenses in Darktable. The improvements are amazing!
