Easy Canvas Prints (review & giveaway)

Disclosure: I received a product to sample, no monetary compensation took place. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Photo on Canvas
For Mother's Day I had a canvas made for my mom of my four kids (her only grandchildren). I loved it so much it was hard to wrap it up and give it away. Luckily, it was for my mom, and that took precedence over me wanting to keep it.  

I knew though, that I would want to have that exact picture made into a canvas for myself. Guess what I just did?  If you said 'had that canvas made,' thanks to Easy Canvas Prints, you would be 100% correct! :)

The proof from the website of my photo

To be honest, the canvas we received was a wee bit little lighter than I would have liked it to be, and the quality of the photo uploaded was a professional one (copyrighted CD from the photographer), but it still looks great on the wall, and so much nicer than just a traditional framed photo. We've got it hanging right when you walk in the house and people always notice it favorably.

When your kids start getting older, and move out, get married, etc., it's harder to get a picture of them together than it is when they're young. Last year for Christmas, my oldest and his wife thought a photo shoot would be a great gift idea for me (they were right!), and this was one of the pictures that came from that day. I'm so happy to have it now on canvas!

Easy Canvas Prints wears their name well, the process to create this canvas was, well, easy!  There are some great options too, for finishing your canvas. You can choose your wrap, I chose to wrap mine in black (around the sides). There were other colors though, and more options including a mirror wrap that was fun. There were also options for touch-up, framing, etc. The service is fully customizable and does allow you to create a print that is very personalized to your own taste. 

Alissa from 'The Apels' had a review up not long ago that showed the image wrap border. It's really cool, especially if you have a nature print like she did. Her giveaway is over, but you can check it out for the review, and to see the border: http://theapels.blogspot.com/2013/08/easy-canvas-prints-review-and-giveaway.html

Would I use Easy Canvas Prints again? Absolutely.

Looks great and glad they stick by their name and it is easy

Have I told you yet how beautiful your family is? I am sure you know that already though ;) I think the canvas turned out so nice! I went with the solid colors on the edges of mine too. I thought that was fun trying to decide what color would look best on the canvas.

Thanks for the compliment, Theresa.

I thought it was fun to choose the side colors too, and kept trying them out even when I knew I was going with black.

I was curious what they looked like with a border color! Love it!

I need to make more of these and move from digital to print.

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Shannon!

Digital makes it so easy to get lost (so much stored, not enough printed!).
