Product Review!

Hello everyone!

I have something a bit different to share with you today.  About a month ago, I received an e-mail from Brendan with Easy Canvas Prints, asking me to review their product.  I was excited about this, as I had seen another crafting friend's finished product, so I immediately said yes!

Here's what happened.  Brendan said the he would be happy to provide me with an 8 x 10 canvas made from my choice of photos.  He provided me with my unique promo code, which allowed me to receive my 8 x 10 canvas print completely free.  Even the shipping was included!  The promo code also allowed additional upgrades, if I chose to pay for them.  I did not make any upgrades, so my canvas was totally free.  

After issuing my promo code, I selected my canvas size and thickness.  I then uploaded my photo.  At this point, they tell me if my photo is good, fair, or poor.  The next step was to choose a border option.  After that, came color choice...sepia, touch ups, black and white, etc.  

I feel like I really tested this company with the photo that I sent. Our DD visits small towns, and takes photos while visiting.  This photo, was DD actually taking a photo of an antique barber pole in a neighboring town.  If you look closely, you can see the pole in the upper center of the canvas.  Of course, you can also see a 'house of mirrors' type image of DD snapping the photo in the dome of the barber pole on the bottom of the photo.  I chose to wrap DD's watermark around the bottom of the canvas, rather than for it to be visible on the front. As you can see, this was definitely not an easy photo to work with, and in my opinion, Easy Canvas did a remarkable job!  This is an amazing canvas, and DD will be so thrilled to receive it for her new home!

Easy Canvas has specials from time to time, and I hope to purchase from them in the near future.  The entire process was very simple, very professional, and the end result is fabulous.  I would be happy to review products for Easy Canvas at any time!  

If you need a gift for that special someone who has everything, consider Easy Canvas!  You will not be disappointed!

Have a great day, thanks for stopping by, and hurry back!  

Hugs and smiles,
Patti J.

Easy Canvas did compensate me with this 8 x 10 canvas print for writing this review.  However, I would not endorse a product or service that I did not like, or that I would not use myself.  The experience that I had with Easy Canvas was enjoyable, and I was delighted with the product that I received.
