Easy Canvas Prints {review}

Those of you who know me well know that I love to take photographs! Back many years ago when  my parents gave me my very first camera for my birthday, A Kodak 110.  If you are not sure what kind of camera is it go look it up. I’ll wait. 

I guess that camera is considered vintage these days, right? Do any of you remember those cool flip flashes that you could attach to the camera. What about flash bulbs? Remember those? Those were the days! I love the sound of the flash popping as you took the picture!

Anyway ever since I had my first camera I have been a shutterbug moving up to a disc camera and eventually a 35 mm camera and currently my SLR camera. I have thousands of pictures both paper and digital.

I have always wanted a print on canvas but have never really looked into creating one for myself. There are a lot of companies out there that offer this service.  When the opportunity to review a canvas print from Easy Canvas Prints, I was eager to accept!

I was given an 8 x 10 for my review.

The first step was to choose a picture! Even though I have many, many photographs. I knew the picture I had in mind! Now you might not think this picture would be the best choice. But let me tell you. Our family laughs and laughs over this particular photo and I knew I wanted it on canvas!

I cropped it to the size I wanted and started the ordering process. Easy Canvas Prints has an easy to navigate website. I had my canvas ordered within 10 minutes and it only took four steps from the start until my order was complete.

  1. Choose canvas size and thickness
  2. Choose wall hanger or stand. I wanted to hang our canvas on a wall so I chose the wall hanger. which is standard. There is an additional cost for the stand.  You also  select a border option here. You have three choices: Mirror Image, Image Wrap or Border Color-I chose mirror image (each of these options are included in the cost of the canvas)
  3. Choose color finishing-you have the option of color, black and white or sepia. The last two options are an additional cost.
  4. add to cart and place your order! You are done!

So easy! I placed my order on November 26th and it arrived on December 4th just as stated in my shipping notice.

I am really pleased with my canvas print!
