I snap photos, and print photos, so often that I’m running out of wall space! So when Easy Canvas Prints approached me to try out their Photos on Canvas product, I responded with an enthusiastic YES!
I’ve invested quite a bit of money (shhh! Don’t tell Matt!) in photos of our family, and the
cheap affordable IKEA frames we put them in, don’t always do them justice. A gallery wrapped canvas print, however, is a much more fitting treatment.
The timing could not have been more perfect, I just got the girls’ photos taken last month! I haven’t even put them in frames yet! This is the photo I chose:
It’s one of my favorites!
I have to say that I really loved the interface for creating the canvas print. They made it very easy to upload my image, and then see an actual mock-up of my image on the canvas. I got to play with the different wrap options (image wrap, mirror image or solid color) before adding the canvas to my cart, so I knew exactly what I was ordering. And the final product looked exactly like the online preview. I’m always thrilled when that happens.
The quality of the print is stunning—it looks just like a painting, or framed piece of fine art. Because of it’s superior construction, this
photo, ahem, piece of art, will be in our family for a lifetime. And then some.
Out of curiosity, I visited several other photo-to-canvas websites to see how Easy Canvas Prints compares, and I was shocked at how bad the competing design interfaces were. NONE of them gave a preview of the photo on canvas. Some of them didn’t even give a preview of the image after it uploaded. How am I supposed to know if it uploaded correctly?? And then there was the pricing…everyone except for Costco was more expensive.
Another feature I love—they’ll print straight from Instagram! You know those highly stylized, square photos I post
every most Wednesdays? Those are made through Instagram. They’re beautiful, but they’ve really been limited to my digital world. Now, though, I think I’ll be immortalizing some of my favs on the 8×8 canvas option. Super exciting!
