Easy Canvas Prints: Review and Giveaway!

When I got an email from a rep with Easy Canvas Prints asking if I'd like to review their product, I was pretty excited. When they also agreed to do a Giveaway for you guys, my readers, I jumped on the opportunity. If you'd like a chance to win your own photo canvas, keep reading!
After a looooong deliberation, I settled on the last professional family photo we had taken...and sadly, it was several years old. We had a shoot at a local historic home, and it was one of my favorite sessions ever.

I loved how easy the site made it for me to complete the order in 4 simple steps:
1. Choose the Canvas Size
2. Upload My Photo
3. Select Canvas Borders
4. Apply Image Effects

The only negative that I could come up with is that I wish the preview area for the photo was a bit larger. I couldn't really tell how dark my image was (I went with black and white), and it could have turned out darker than I would liked.



























My 11 x 14 canvas is sturdy, good quality canvas, and wrapped tightly and firmly without being stretched too much. I went with the "Image Wrap," which wraps your photo around the borders of the canvas.
























I'm a happy camper. For now, my canvas is resting on our built-ins in the Addition, but I want to create a black and white gallery wall in the Family room with my new canvas and some old "heirloom" ancestor photos.

















Easy Canvas Prints is going to give one lucky reader a FREE 8 x 10 Canvas!

What a great photo of you guys! You looks so cute.
I would have a photo of my boys put on canvas and give it to my mom who worships the very ground they walk on (well, Han Solo can't even crawl yet, but you know what I mean). As I am an only child, they are her only grandchildren and it would THRILL her to no end to get a canvas of them. Wow, that was wordier than I intended.

I love this! I would want a photo of my kids at the beach on canvas. I have the perfect one taken a few weeks ago.

Danielle said...

OOh - I love this - I would love a pic of my two kids on canvas.

Kelli @ RTSM said...

I would probably do a family photo just because we haven't really taken one since Eli was a few months old!

I tweeted.

Wow! Great giveaway! My hubby and I have been thinking about getting a few prints done in sepia of the rivers that run through Columbia, SC...the scenes with the big boulder rocks are beautiful!

is it wrong to say my cat? ok, probably something from one of our trips, either hawaii or spain. i think. hopefully that is a choice i get to make...thanks for offering this!

Stella said...

Great photo! The kids grow up way too fast. I think our family is due for a recent shot, so I'd make sure to get a good one on our cabin trip next month!

Denise said...

I love the look of photos on canvas! I would put photos of my grandson, and my 2 dogs. The black and white looks wonderful.
And I "liked" easy canvas prints on FB.

Charity said...

Your canvas turned out great! My hubby and I had portraits done last year, and I really need to get one enlarged - a canvas would be really pretty! :)

Charity said...

I tweeted! :)

The family photos are always my favorite. Guess I'd have to get a family photo taken.

I would love to have a canvas photo of our family. It's been awhile since we've had one done. Love the canvas look :)

"GB" said...

You have a beautiful family! I would love a canvas photo to give to my mom of graduation. She would be so excited. Thank you for the opportunity!

Holly said...

I was just thinking about the canvas prints everyone was getting a while ago and searching for a deal. Free would be even better! I have a photo of my three kids at the beach that I would use.
That's a really nice photo of your family. Can you believe how fast they grow?

Megan said...

Very cool! Thanks for sharing! I just found your beautiful site and now I know I'll stop back by again. Happy blogging, decorating, & living-

Your family canvas is great. Thanks for the review and giveaway. I would love one of my college kids!

Richella said...

That's a beautiful photo, Amanda! You're so pretty and very photogenic, and of course your girls are, too--it's interesting to see them when they're so small! Natalie looks just the same as now, just so little. . . and Michaela Byrd is such a darling baby! T looks a little like "Oh, golly, I'm outnumbered here," but also a little like "I'm so proud of all my girls." :)

If I had wrapped canvas, I'd probably choose a photo of my boys from their younger days. It's so rare now to get a photo of all three of them together! Question: do you supply the company with the negative, the digital image, the actual photograph, or what?

Jenilyn said...

What a great photo! I would love a canvas of my baby girl's 1st birthday photo shoot. She'll be one in less than a month!

Sallie said...

What a beautiful family! I would love a canvas print of my youngest son and his bride on their wedding day.

Clifford Jeffery said...

I love the photo you chose. Your little ones are so LITTLE! I gotta try the canvas craze. I was thinking of getting a canvas of a scenic view from each trip we take, so I should get started. :)

Crystal @ Ordinary Days said...

What beautiful pictures! I would love to have one of my family photos done on this. So pretty. :)

Robin said...

First time at your blog and you have a giveaway that I would love to win!
I would have a family picture put on the canvas in black and white.

I would use this for one of our engagement photos!

I have a picture of my sons with my nieces and nephew I made this past Christmas. I think it would make a great photo for a canvas.

We have a 16x20 canvas of our first son, now it's time to make one for son #2! I would love to win the giveaway!

Paula said...

I have a great picture from a wedding this spring that I'd use if I won.

I love how your picture turned out and think that it will look great mixed with old ancestor type pictures. I've been wanting to do some kind of gallery wall going up our steps with family pictures for a long time. I should get started!

Paula said...

I just tweeted this!

My sister-in-law talked me into doing Twitter at the beach. I haven't quite figured it out just yet!
