Easy Canvas Prints

Stephanie at Easy Canvas Prints offered me an opportunity to review their product of a canvas print from a photo. I was really excited to see their product because we just paid for professional photos of our extended families at Thanksgiving and Christmas this year.

The set-up is very simple: you go to their site, upload whatever image you want to print, and they have many options for how to change and upgrade your photo. Sizes range from 8 by 8 inches to 30 by 40 inches, which is quite nice.

I tried the 8 by 10 inch option, which is approximately $40 retail. I didn't do any upgrades on the product. The site is overall well designed with clear instructions, though I do think there are too many ways to upgrade in different stages of your order process.

There are different options for what you want the edges of the canvas print to look like- you can wrap the photo around the edge or do a solid edge, making it look more like a frame.

The canvas print came quickly and was packaged well. I thought the quality of materials involved was very nice.

Based on current home printers and the pixelation of the print I received, I think this service would be best suited for either a very large canvas or just one person's face, or both. Because it's a textured surface, eight people on an 8 by 10 inch picture is too small for the medium.

The pricing means that if you buy a large canvas, this is really an heirloom, high end gift. If you compare prices to Walmart, you will find that the smaller sizes are more expensive on Easy Print, but as the size of the canvas gets bigger, the prices become almost identical at the biggest size.

If you would like to order a print today, Stephanie is offering a 50% off promo code.

Thank you to Stephanie for this opportunity! The print I ordered is a great gift for my family.
