I use Bay Photo (www.bayphoto.com) and I have beem well satisfied with their work. You should understand that getting it printed on a panel is just the start. I have the panels mounted flush on a light metal frame and the wire mounting ensures that the artwork hangs flush on the wall. It is expensive; a 12"W by 18"H will cost slightly more than $131 to produce plus the shipping ($9+ regular; $13.20 for two-day shipping). I do not know what you charge for your paintings, but if your markup is three times the cost to produce, your minimum price should be about $425. I use it because I am basically a colorist producing realistic/representational art and the resultant picture is absolutely beautiful. In exhibits that have voting for most popular painting in the exhibit, I win that designation quite regularly.
I use a Wacom Drawing Tablet, various graphics programs, and a PC to create my art. The output from the process is a digital file of the painting. I send the file to an online photography company that prints the painting on an aluminum panel. It is not printed directly on the panel; the process infuses the ink into a specialty coating on the panel and it is then covered by a clear acrylic coating to protect the painting. I got the idea from photography magazine articles about photographers printing their photos on metal panels. I love the result. The painting is very luminous, vibrant, exhibits brilliant color, and its longevity is two to four times that of a print on the best archival paper or canvas. It resists scratches, it does not fade, and you can clean it with a damp cloth. I hope that answers you question. If you need more information, let me know.
