Easy Canvas Prints - Review and Giveaway

I love having photographs in my house. To be quite honest, photos are my favorite form of art. Therefore, when Easy Canvas Prints asked me to review one of their products, I jumped right on the opportunity. So far, we had only hung the regular framed prints up on our walls and I was excited to have a canvas of one of our family photos to display.
Equipped with all the info I needed, I sat down at my computer to place the order. Having designed Christmas cards and birth announcements on various online printing sites, I prepared myself for a long and tedious ordeal. I even brought snacks... The ordering process was such a pleasure! It was simple, straightforward and super fast. I was done within five minutes. All I had to do was pick the size and quality canvas I wanted, upload my picture, choose the type of border style I preferred, and enter my shipping information. That’s it.
Too good to be true? I thought that these canvases must be printed in China to be offered at such a low price. The answer I received from the company in response to my inquiry: “All of our canvases are proudly printed and mounted in our production facility […] in Austin, TX.”
I prepared myself for a long wait, since I chose the cheapest shipping option. Despite delivery delays due to the hurricane, my package arrived sooner than anticipated.
It was so wonderful to rip open the box and find a great quality product inside! The canvas far exceeded my expectations.

And this is a picture of the canvas print:

And a close-up of the texture:

Though you can see the textured surface, the picture quality has remained excellent. I was anticipating some sort of pixelly version of our family photo, but the resolution is fantastic. I am by no means an expert when it comes to print quality, but I have seen bad prints and great ones and this canvas definitely falls into the latter category.
Easy Canvas Prints is offering 25% off all canvases and free standard shipping at the moment, so now is definitely a great time to check out their website and products at http://www.easycanvasprints.com/.

  6. I love the idea of custom artwork though I feel like the artist who created the work knows the best cropping of their own works.
    For canvas printing though I do like canvasdezign.co.uk
