5 Surefire Tips to Stunning Canvas Prints (and Easy Canvas Prints Review)

untitled-1-2I have been wanting to create a canvas print for our home since quite some time. So this holiday season, I went ahead and ordered a canvas print from our trip to the Tetons.

Printing photos is complicated. It’s not as simple as just picking up and ordering online. I learned that there are few things that you should remember before ordering prints. Here are 5 important tips:

5 Surefire Tips to Brilliant Canvas Prints

  1. Start with Great Quality – Simple yet often forgotten advice: start with great quality photos. Make sure you select photos that are sharp and reflect true color. Pick as high resolution as possible.
  2.  Post Process Your Photos – Some companies provide post processing service to “enhance” your photos. No one other than you knows your vision of that photograph. So don’t rely on post processing services and do it yourself before sending it to print.
  3. Carefully Position Your Photos – When going with Canvas prints, make sure photo aligns specially if you plan on creating gallery wraps. Gallery wraps are available in different styles – mirror image, image wrap and border color.
  4. Understand the Color Difference – If you know that prints have a slightly different color tone, you can adjust the original photo to balance this out. Also make sure your monitor is calibrated to the right colors.
  5. Always Preview Before Ordering – Always without exception, preview your image before final order. I cannot tell you how many times previewing has saved me flushing money down the drain. If you are ordering gallery wrap, make sure your photo does get unintentionally cropped.

Easy Canvas Prints Review

For a while, I had thought about printing a photo on a canvas print, but was a little unsure. I had always thought that canvas prints were expensive and so the question was whether I should print on canvas or should stick with the time tested method – matte prints on 11×14.

Few days back after much thought and hesitation I decided to create a canvas print. Finally, I ordered a canvas print on easycanvasprints.com. The rates on this website are reasonable.

The ordering process was simple. I picked up a landscape photo to order. Photo was horizontal frame so was easy to order with click of a button. However, if your photo is vertical it takes a while to figure out how to find that size in vertical frame.

Print quality was good and professional. The colors were a little on warmer side. Understand what’s the “right” color of the photo not only depends on the photo but also your display settings.

The canvas was mounted on a solid wooden frame and overall was sturdy. Canvas frame was well packed and shipped safely.

We’ve hung this canvas in our living room and among other photos, this photograph printed on canvas standout. Good thing I tried, or I would have never known. Next I am planning to select some food photos to create canvas prints.

I wish I would have started sooner. Order your canvas print on Easy Canvas Prints.

Taking Great Photographs

Last few weeks I’ve been learning from some very accomplished photographers. I have been looking at some stats too. Last year about 109 million cameras were sold. All of these people bought a new camera to take better photos.

Sad story is that, majority of people never use there camera more than couple of times a year. I am convinced that there is only one way to improve your photography. I am studying this a bit more and will be posting a detailed post soon.

Until then, Keep making great pictures.

  • Very diamond-like. Was this shot through a gobo, or was the screen behind the plant?

    from the droplets. Beautiful.

  • I just want to say I am very new to blogging and honestly liked this page. Likely I’m going to bookmark your site . You certainly have very good well written articles. Regards for sharing your blog.

  • Can I just say what a comfort to uncover an individual who really understands what they’re discussing on the internet. You definitely realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people have to look at this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you are not more popular given that you surely possess the gift.

  • Spot on with this write-up, I truly feel this web site needs much more attention. I’ll probably be back again to see more, thanks for the advice!

  • The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  • Oh my goodness! Amazing article dude!

  • After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment is added I recieve four emails with the same comment. Is there an easy method you can remove me from that service? Thanks a lot!

  • Oh my goodness! Impressive article dude!

  • Very good article. I absolutely appreciate this site. Keep it up!

  • You ought to take part in a contest for one of the best websites on the net. I’m going to highly recommend this site!

  • Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon every day. It will always be interesting to read articles from other authors and practice something from their websites.

  • This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  • I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt for something concerning this.

  • Very nice post. I absolutely appreciate this website. Thanks!

  • The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

    This page certainly has all the information I wanted about this subject and didn’t know who to ask.

  • I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I stumbled across this in my hunt for something concerning this.

  • Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  • Excellent blog you have here.. It’s hard to find excellent writing like yours nowadays. I really appreciate individuals like you! Take care!!
