We moved to a new house this past fall and I have to admit I have done NOTHING for decorating yet. My walls are blank with the exception of a couple of random pictures which my husband hung up on nails that were already on the wall. I haven’t painted anything yet because I don’t know yet what I want to do. I haven’t changed curtains. I have a great deal of wallpaper and borders I need to remove this spring. For all these reasons I was extremely happy to receive a 16 x 20 canvas print from Easy Canvas Prints for review to start working on my new home decor.
My baby turned one this past month and I have not yet printed any kind of family picture of us. I had a great family picture taken at a family wedding this past summer and I knew that was the picture I wanted for my wall. Making the picture into a quality canvas print was even better than just having it printed. The results were fabulous.

The Easy Canvas Prints website was extremely easy to use. Just a few simple steps and my masterpiece was ordered.
First I selected the canvas size. They have several sizes ranging from 8″ x 8″ to 30′ x 40″. They also have a custom size option where you can choose any size. I chose a 16″ x 20″ which is their most popular size. I then decided on a thickness for the canvas. .75″ is the standard which is included, but you can opt for a 1.5″ wrapped or framed for additional cost.
Next, I uploaded the image. You can choose from your computer, or they give an option to access Facebook or Instagram. I uploaded mine from my computer and it was a very quick easy process. Once uploaded you can move your picture around to make sure it is positioned as you want and change the size if you need to.
You can then choose whether you want a standard wall hanger which is included, or a canvas stand for additional cost. I chose the standard wall hanger option. At this point you pick which border option you want, either a mirror image border, image wrap, or choose a border color. I chose a border color. I tried to match the green around the border to the light green within the picture. The actual color on my print is a much brighter green than what I remember selecting. This is the only thing I would go back and change if I could. I think it may have looked better if I would have chosen the mirror option. The green color just didn’t match the way I wanted.
The final step before adding to the cart is to select if you want to change color options such as black and white or sepia for additional cost and you can also opt for retouching of your photo. I didn’t choose any of these options. I was happy with my picture as it was.
The whole process was easy and user friendly and the canvas is beautiful. I have to point out if you look at my pictures there appears to be rippling on the picture but that rippling was in the banner that was hanging in the background on the picture I used it is NOT in the canvas. The canvas is extremely well mounted and easy to hang. I will absolutely be using them again in the near future for myself and for gifts. Now that I have ordered from them I get emails and notifications of all of their great specials.
