Easy Canvas Review


Easy Canvas Review and Giveaway | www.chocolatemoosey.com

As a photographer, I love to display my photos. Whether it’s travel photos in the living room, friend photos in the bedroom, or food photos in the kitchen, seeing my favorite shots hanging up always makes me smile. Recently, Easy Canvas Prints asked me if I would like to try their service where I can pick two photos and have them printed onto 8×10 canvas. Immediately I thought of displaying my photography in the kitchen, more specifically two of my award-winning recipes. Do you like the way they look? I’ll tell you my thoughts on them (and give you a chance to win two free 8×10 prints to decorate your home).

The two prints I got were my Chocolate Coconut Cupcakes and German Chocolate “Cake” Sandwich Cookies. I entered both of these recipes into local contests and won first place. If I had room on my wall, I’d display it with the newspaper articles, but for now pictures will do.

The ordering process is pretty straight forward. Once you upload the photo, you can keep it full size or scale it down. What’s handy is a status bar that’ll let you know if the image quality is good or poor. You wouldn’t want to waste your money printing a pixelated, blurry picture. As you go through the order process, it asks you different customization questions, including border (the sides of the canvas since it’s not flat). I opted for a solid color border, but you could extend the photo (which results in some of it wrapping around and getting cut off) or mirror the photo (it looked weird but could work in some cases). You can pick any color you want, as long as you have the color code. That way, you can blend the edges in with your photo and not have some bright color that stands out.

The bad part about Easy Canvas Prints is how pricy canvas prints are. The prints can vary from $30-$100. Afterwards, I received a coupon in my email (part of their refer-a-friend program) for a free print; I just need to pay shipping. I ordered a Grand Canyon photo for my dad’s birthday, which cost $18 in shipping. Yikes. However, after looking around a few other photo sites, it looks like canvas prints are expensive no matter where you buy. I definitely want to get more prints, both of my food and my travels. At least now when someone asks what I want for Christmas, I can tell them some more prints.

The giveaway is now closed. Congrats to Natasha S. for winning!

Disclosure: Easy Canvas Prints offered me two 8×10 prints to review and two 8×10 prints to giveaway. I was not further compensated. All opinions and photographs are my own.
