Easy Canvas Prints
Full disclosure: Easy Canvas Prints contacted me last year and offered to give me a free print in exchange for this review. For that reason, you’ll not see much talk about the cost here. I will say that, in general, services that print your photos to canvas are not inexpensive, and Easy Canvas Prints seem to be along that same vein.
It’s rare to find a company that makes a bold statement about the quality of their work and then delivers on all fronts. Easy Canvas Prints, however, is an exception. An affiliate company of Build A Sign, Easy Canvas Prints is a service which allows you to upload your photo and have it turned into a quality canvas that is printed and stretched by their canvas professionals.
The initial creation process, where you upload a photo and then crop it could not have been easier. With a few clicks of the mouse, I was able to upload, crop, and choose from a wide variety of options such as canvas size and edge types. With options selected, I was only a few steps away from having a completed order.
If I had a major criticism, it would be what happened next. Along with the confirmation email for the order, I immediately received an email about the company’s upcoming Graduation Sale. This leads me to believe that I’m probably on their email marketing list. I didn’t see an opt-out for marketing during the order process, and I’m never a big fan of it being assumed that I want to continue to receive email beyond my order. Having an opt-in checkbox for future marketing would be advisable.
The order arrived wrapped in brown paper and plastic. It is absolutely gorgeous. The color fidelity between my original photograph and that of the canvas is spot on. It surprised me how much the texture of the canvas added to the overall look of the finished piece. During ordering, I’d opted for a wall hanger on the back of my canvas. It is small and unobtrusive and will make hanging a snap.
Overall, if you’re looking for a really attractive way to show off your photographs, Easy Canvas Prints is an excellent choice.
