I have always wanted to have a canvas print done, but never got around to actually doing it. When CanvasPop contacted me a few weeks ago to see if I would be interested in partnering for a review, I quickly said yes! Photo's on canvas are great gift ideas (especially for grandparents) so I was happy to be able to add this to the 2015 Gift Guide.
I went through my photo's and decided on one from our DisneyWorld trip earlier this year. My ordering process is different than using the website, so I decided that I would start an order on the site and then just not hit submit. This allowed me to get a feel for what the ordering experience is like.
It was fairly straight forward. I opened the website, clicked the "Get Started" button and off I went. Once I decided which type of product to order, I was prompted to choose a photo from the computer, facebook account or instagram account (you will need to connect an account if choosing the FB or IG option).
I then chose the size, depth and edging of the canvas and was prompted to upload the photo. Once the photo uploaded, you are able to choose options (black and white, isolating colours etc). Some options are free of charge, and others have additional charges. You also have the option to add enhancements and have their designers touch up the photo (additional charges apply).
The photo I selected was from my computer, however I did go through the process for a facebook photo to see the difference. When I first uploaded, it told me the resolution wasn't great and that all facebook photo's have a "digital smooth" effect added to help with the final look. There are other options available at an extra cost.
You have the option to receive a free digital print sent to you, which will allow you to see what the final product would look like with whatever enhancements you have chosen. They also offer a money back guarantee. They want their customers to love their prints.
Once I sent the photo to CanvasPop, I was told it would take 10-14 business days to receive it. The delivery truck dropped it off after 10 days, and I was excited to open it up and see how it looked.
The print came VERY well packaged (which is nice to see, you know there won't be any damage during shipping) and it looked fantastic!
I was anxious to get it hung up above the fireplace in our family room!
