Being that Relay for Life is rapidly approaching, I was asked again if I had interest in donating another photo for the OIT's online auction. I was happy to do so again, but this time I wanted to do something different. I decided to try out getting one of my images printed on metal. Not to be confused with metallic, where images can be printed on metallic paper. This process involves direct printing onto metal, not paper.
Relay for Life Photo 12"X36" - Front
Above is the image I chose to donate to the auction and have printed. I contacted Bay Photo Lab, whom I'd heard does a fantastic job at producing these. A few days later, the print arrived and I was astounded. The sheen that comes across from the surface of this print is remarkable. It's like getting image printed on a piece of glass. In addition to it being a brilliant piece as it is, it's really easy to hang on a wall anywhere. It comes with the hardware already attached to the back for ease of installation.
Relay for Life Photo (Backside)
In the above photo, you can see the back of the print itself. The center section (where the 3 mounting holes are) stands out from the actual main print portion. When you hang it on the wall, it actually 'floats' off the wall a bit, creating an interesting dimension for a more dynamic display. Very cool!
I am considering adding Bay Photo Lab as an option to my galleries so that anyone can order one of my prints this way. I will let you know when that happens!
For now, you can visit http://nd-oit-auction.com/wpoit/ to bid on this print and other items with proceeds going to Relay for Life.
Thanks for reading and happy bidding!
