I used to use KodakGallery.com to print 8x10 photos with a metallic reflective finish. Since the last time I printed a photo, KodakGallery.com has shut down and shutterfly has replaced it and I don't see an option to print photos with a metallic finish.

What is a good site for printing photos with a metallic finish?

I just ordered a couple prints from AdoramaPix -- they were on sale (ended Tuesday), but I haven't received them yet, so I'll reserve judgement as far as "good" goes. Given their quality for other prints, though, I'd be surprised if they're not good. –  D. Lambert Sep 7 '12 at 17:57

I'll second AdoramaPix. I'm there for the books, mostly (I give my mid-sized printing to a fastidious local guy who's charging way less than he's worth), but they haven't let me down yet. –  user2719 Sep 7 '12 at 18:07
    
Also SmugMug.com has metallic prints smugmug.com/prints/metallic-paper (note, I'm an employee) –  Shizam Sep 7 '12 at 20:21
    
MPix has specialized in this for a great deal of time. They are nice prints, and Mpix is very popular –  dpollitt Oct 29 '12 at 22:23

I use smugmug.com for my hosting and printing services. They have Kodak metallic paper available for Pro users who choose Bay Photo as their printer. So I would guess that this means that Bay Photo also has the metallic paper available.

Whitewall from Germany can print on aluminium, though I'm not sure if that's what you want.

Bumblejax is a great, professional-quality service that mounts digital photos to acrylic, aluminum, gator board and bamboo. They also include a metallic paper option. You can check them out here:http://www.bumblejax.com/

Hi Marina! Have you used this service? (Or, are you affiliated with them? Either is okay, but it'd be nice to have more details so people can make an informed choice.) –  mattdm Oct 29 '12 at 22:26
    
I have used this service several times. I've had a couple larger prints made and a few iphone photos printed on smaller canvases :) –  Marina Oct 29 '12 at 22:53
    
Cool, thank you! –  mattdm Oct 29 '12 at 23:25

I used FullColor based out of Dallas, TX, USA and was pleased with the price and quality of a reflective metal print.
