Review: Easy Canvas Prints

I recently had a chance to review the company Easy Canvas Prints and order a "Photo to Canvas" print.  The site is very clean and easy to navigate.  It actually “walks” you through the ordering process.  First you choose your canvas size.  For this review, I ordered an 11x14x.75” standard wrapped canvas.  Next, you are directed to upload your image.  The site includes an image quality indicator, which will let you know whether or not your image has the right resolution for a canvas print.  You can even adjust the image size in order to crop out any unwanted space or fluff in your photo.  In the next step, you select from three border options, which include a mirror image, an image wrap or a simple border color.  I chose the image wrap. Next you have the option for Color Finishing and Image Retouching.  No need for those, so I went on to the next step, which was Checkout.  One thing that kept making me nervous throughout the ordering process was that every time I got the image just the way I wanted it in the preview screen, it would shift and go way off center.  

It only took about 10-15 minutes to complete the transaction, and I think the most time consuming part of the entire process was just choosing which photo to use.

I received the finished product just 7 days after ordering it.  I was very pleased with the turnaround time.  The canvas was decently packaged within a plastic sheath, wrapped with “butcher paper” and contained in a cardboard box.  There was nothing within the box to prevent the canvas from sliding around and bumping against the sides of the package, but no damage was apparent due to this.  

The finished product was off in color from the online order proof.  The photo I uploaded was a professional quality high-resolution black and white image and reflected as such in the order proof.  The canvas we received had very yellow tones.  There was also a blemish on my forehead which was not present in the photo.  I was able to rub/scratch off most of the blemish with my fingernail.  Although an exchange could have been made, I decided not to bother with it, since the canvas took on a more black and white appearance in different lighting.

This is the photo I ordered.  Don't I have an adorable family?

All in all, I thought the ordering experience was quite easy, the shipping turnaround time was extremely fast and the quality of the canvas was good.  I would definitely order from the company again.

Disclosure: I was contacted by a representative of and offered a promotion code that covered the cost of the canvas I ordered as well as the cost of shipping.  I am writing this review of the ordering experience and the finished product, and providing the company with a link on my sidebar in exchange for the promotion code.  All stated opinions are my own.
