If you want to sell your images online, safe in the knowledge that your work is being produced to the best possible standard, by a professional and renown print lab, then our service is for you.
Our hassle free and fully customisable web shop plug-in sits effortlessly in your website allowing your clients to buy your prints straight from you.
No directing people away from your site to buy from third parties, no other branding other than your own and no competing with other sellers.
You can either work with Metro staff, or simply install yourself – you can use our web API to plug into the back of your website to provide your customers with a set of images available for order direct from Metro Imaging.
You can create as many galleries as you like, to truly show off your range of work; from limited edition prints to single art sales. You can set the sizes, prices, paper types and finishes and we will take of the rest; Take a look at an example here.
We can guide you through the installation process on your website, match the font and colour themes you use and show you how to add images and set prices.
We can also provide you with handy guides on how to get started with marketing your print shop and of course offer after sales care for your clients.
Behind the scenes, we will take payment for you, your high-resolution file is retrieved from our server; your print is produced, checked, packed, labelled and posted without you lifting a finger!
You can even provide us with your own branded packaging, which we will use to send your prints out to your clients, or we can use our own in-house packaging. Whichever suits you.

Prints ready for collection from 4 hours, or for delivery worldwide. We are able to produce bigger and better C-Type photo prints than anywhere else in the UK. Our photo prints can go up to 120 x 72 inches (3m x 1.8m) in size, giving you a huge choice of sizes when it comes to producing your prints.
While all of our colour and black and white photo printing services are of gallery quality, a lot of photographers and artists like to produce their fine art prints on Giclee watercolour paper, using archival pigment inks.
We can produce real Silver Gelatin 'Darkroom prints' from your digital files. Working with Ilford, we are able to print directly to Ilford Galerie Silver FB Glossy fibre based bromide photo paper and Ilford Galerie Digital Silver RC Pearl.
After your photos have been printed, our mounting team are able to mount the prints on a range of substrates, ranging from the lightweight foamex, foamboard or kapamount. We can also mount ctype photo prints onto more sturdy materials such as dibond or aluminium, backed with either battens or a subframe, depending on print size.
