Hello out there in blog land! How is everyone on this crisp, October day? Doing well, I hope! I have a special blog post today to share an amazing company and product with you! I know I always love hearing about new goodness in our crafty/scrappy industry.
Last month I was contacted by EasyCanvasPrints.com and offered a free canvas in exchange for a product review here on my blog. I went to their website and surfed around a little to get more info. The more I saw, the more intrigued I was so of course I said "SURE" and "yayyyyy thanks" to the awesome website and marketing people. The next (and more difficult question) out there was...what photo should I use?? Wow. Talk about a tough choice...
In the end I got a gorgeous, high-quality 8x10 canvas featuring this wonderful photo of my boys, taken when DS#2 came home from the hospital. (I know the picture of the picture is not the best quality. I think there's something wrong with my camera, the bottom of the photos has been coming out blurry lately).
I really can't say enough how impressed I was with everything about EasyCanvasPrints. (And you KNOW I'm not that easily impressed!). This canvas is thick and heavy, with a beautiful finish and texture that shows it off as something unique, but doesn't lose anything from the photo (not even tiny baby features!). I had the "standard wrap", which means it's 3/4" thick. Since the sides of the canvas are exposed without a frame, I got the mirror image option, which means they're not plain, they're printed with a mirror image of the photo! Love it! The entire frame underneath is solid and it came wrapped so carefully to ensure there was no damage during transit.
Here's the part of the ordering process that I really liked. When you are ready to order your canvas, you go to their website, choose the canvas size you're after, and upload your picture. You can upload from your hard drive or even from Facebook! The website has an excellent photo editor built right into it, so you don't have to try to tweak your photo before you upload, it will show you the sizing area based on the canvas size you chose, and will let you "zoom" in the image, move it around on the print area, crop, and all kinds of things. When you are done it will show you PERFECTLY just how your canvas will look. This was especially important for me, the photo I chose had a kiddo's coat thrown off onto the floor right above the boys' heads. Using the system on their website, I was able to move and zoom and push the coat out of the picture, while still seeing how it would look on the finished product (helpful because when I tried to crop it out in PSE it didn't work as well without having that sizing palette set for me.
So, yes, I am EXTREMELY pleased with this gorgeous canvas, and I can't wait to show it off! Oh, the other thing - the printing and shipping was unbelievably fast, even with the standard shipping option I had this beauty in my hands in less than a week after ordering - coming from Texas up to Wisconsin! I rate their quality, shipping, ease of website use and professional communication 10s across the board! I can't wait to get another; I'm thinking wall collage...
Thank you again to Brendan for contacting me and for the workers for creating such a beautiful canvas. I have put a permanent link to the EasyCanvasPrints website up on my right side bar, if you'd like to check it out. You can also like them on Facebook!
