I am getting a large number of aluminum prints done for a client and I was originally going to go with bayphoto, but black river imaging has a sale on right now and the cost is significantly less.

Has anyone done an aluminum print through black river before?

These are prints done on aluminum not metallic photographic paper.

Thanks!

Bay Photo did 2 16x20 single sheet not brackets but rounded 1/8th edges for me, and they are awesome, I then made my own 1/2" bracket to float it off the wall and they look sick! Definitely get the rounded edges!!! But I have not tried black river yet.

Thanks! The bayphoto aluminum prints are amazing! I have done a few for clients in the past and I was very happy with the quality. This is a good sized order and black river is significantly cheaper. I may try one and see how it looks.

That is always the best thing to do, maybe try one of the smallest sizes.

If you order one, please let us know how it came out.
Might consider using them with some shots on future trips.

I will. I am definitely going to order 1 16x24 and see how it turns out. I was thinking about ordering a smaller size, but the cost difference is so minimal it doesn't seem worth it. I'll post the results as soon as I have them.

Then go with the 16x24 if the diff is so minimal.
