How do I get the absolute best quality print?

Our quality checker will not allow any image under 72DPI from being processed. 72DPI is the level we deem as being an acceptable print quality for a Metalpic without being too limiting on which images you can use. You can check your photos exact DPI in Adobe Photoshop by making it the size you require and checking the DPI. To take advantage of our highest quality print we would advise ensuring your photo is 150DPI+. I’m using the Facebook uploader tool, but I am not sure that my images are of a high enough quality? If you are being prompted with a messege about the file size of your images this may mean that when you originally uploaded your images to Facebook you did not select the “High Quality” option. If this is the case all your photos on Facebook will have been compressed and as a result may not be suitable for printing on a Metadpic. If you are unsure then please email your images to and one of our experts will check it for you.

How long does it take to deliver my Metalpic?

Delivery options range from 2 - 4 working days subject to product and the delivery option selected. For Metalpic retailers we are able to provide a faster turn around, subject to rush rates.
