Is it just us or does summer seem to be just flying by? Our family has been busy enjoying our time outside as much as possible and have a good number of photos to show for it. While we do make an effort to enjoy actual moments rather than just try to capture them, our phone memory is mostly dedicated to pictures. Some family pictures, however, deserve to blown up, printed out and displayed lovingly on a wall in our house. Many times it may make sense to go with a formal picture and frame combination, but other times a more unconventional option like a canvas print is the way to go. Canvas printing provides a unique combination of value, longevity and picture quality (we love the texture!) that is hard to match. So when we had a chance to try out a canvas print from our friends at Canvas on the Cheap, we jumped at that opportunity.
Now we have tried a couple of canvas printing service options before, but the website for Canvas on the Cheap is indeed one of the simplest we have interacted with. Only a few simple steps, and before you know it, your order is complete: upload a picture, choose the size, frame depth (deeper adds a three-dimensional feel), optional wooden border, and open or covered back. This may be a good place to point out that they have some of the cheapest prices on canvas prints we have come across, the almost-too-good-to-true level. Especially, if you compare the cost of having a similar sized print photo with frame.
The delivery of the print was prompt and without any problems. Given the price, we weren’t sure what to expect but the print out of the box looked great. Vibrant colors with no distracting glossy sheen (one of the benefits of canvas), taut quality canvas and a sturdy wooden frame, what more could we ask for?! We compared it against some of our other canvas prints and couldn’t really tell any difference in quality. The question of longevity and normal wear and tear still remains, but the first impression has indeed been a good one.
Given the low prices at Canvas on the Cheap, we’ve got a long list of other photos we’d like to have printed out as well. These canvas prints would make a great, inexpensive but thoughtful gift for holidays, birthdays or any other special occasion. If only they could help us make our minds about the right picture to print!
To bring more memories to life, the wonderful people at Canvas on the Cheap are now making one of their canvas prints (Canvas size: 16″x20” / 40x50cm) available for free to one of our fabulous readers:
