High Quality Affordable Canvas Prints [Review]

I am slightly obsessed with photography. Currently, one of the top items on my wish list is a DSLR camera. My smartphone takes great photographs, but as my baby has become more mobile, I need something better to take beautiful photographs that I can print and put on my wall. Although I love a big print in a frame, I tend to prefer the look of canvas prints. Canvas printing is now easier than ever with Easy Canvas Prints, which allows me to quickly order professional looking canvas prints online.

High quality canvas prints

Ready to hang

Easy Canvas Prints offers high quality, gallery-ready prints at affordable prices. The ordering process is quick and easy. The prices are a lot cheaper than at comparable companies. Easy Canvas Prints frequently offers sales and discounts to make printing your memories on canvas even more affordable. To me, there is something unique about printing your special memories on canvas.

I chose to print an 8x10 canvas print with 1.5" border wrap (gallery-style wrap) ready to hang on the wall with a standard brass hanger and a Mirror Wrap border. Since my canvas print is hanging in a high-traffic location, I wanted the border to match the image as opposed to having a colored border. I decided against the Image Wrap option because the ordering wizard would zoom in to the photo and then wrap it around. I did not want to cut off any of the people, so I chose the Mirror Wrap. I am pleased with the Mirror Wrap.

Ordering the print took me less than 10 minutes the first time and would take me less than 5 on subsequent orders. I like that I can quickly order with the Easy Canvas Prints ordering wizard and feel confident in the product that I am going to receive. I would like to see more customization options like portrait orientation. I wanted to print a portrait photo and did not see an option to change the photo orientation on the ordering wizard. Therefore, I had to manually rotate the photo before uploading. I would like to see an option to select the orientation that I want printed.

*Update Regarding Photo Orientation: If ordering a photo in the landscape orientation, select "custom size" and choose 10x8 (or the size of the print that you would like) to make the image landscape. Basically, flip the two numbers and select that size. The ability to rotate photos after they are uploaded will be available from Easy Canvas Prints in the future.

The print arrived in a sturdy cardboard box, well protected inside a plastic bag, and a Fragile sticker on the outside. I like all of the protection to ensure that the canvas print does not get damaged during shipping. The print was ready to be hung as soon as I took it out of the package. The canvas print was on the wall within a few minutes. Since I printed the photo in the portrait orientation, the hanging bracket was hung on the landscape orientation side. My husband removed the hanging bracket and attached it to the adjacent side to remedy this issue. The canvas print hangs flush with the wall and is easy to remove and hang.

Easy Canvas Prints offers a quick and easy process to order high quality, affordable canvas prints delivered right to your door. With the frequent discounts and sales, I will look to Easy Canvas Prints for any of my future canvas printing needs.
