CANVAS ON DEMAND

For more than 15 years, Canvas On Demand has been creating a wide variety of print gifts: more than 3 million images since 2002.

You'll find an almost overwhelming variety of canvas print options with this company - and an ordering process that feels a little bit backwards. First, you'll need to have an idea if you want Premium or Traditional Canvas. Premium comes in the following sizes and includes an extended 2-year warranty:

  • 8x10
  • 12x12
  • 11x14
  • 16x16
  • 16x20
  • 20x20
  • 20x24
  • 20x30
  • 24x36
  • 30x30
  • 30x40
  • 32x48

You have even more options with Traditional, available in both 0.75" and 1.5" wraps, Their most popular sizes, which ship in 2-3 business days, are 11x14, 16x20, 20x24, 24x36, and 30x40. But, if you have a custom size, you can select any dimensions in whole-inch measurements from 8x8 up to a maximum of 55x100; these custom orders ship in 3-5 business days.

Canvas On Demand's list prices are very high. We went through the ordering process and found that an 8x8, Traditional Canvas print had a "regular" price of $57. Fortunately, there were discounts already in place, and our price dropped to a much more agreeable $28.

We opted to upload a photo from our computer, though we appreciated having the ability to choose an image from our Facebook account as well. (Adding Instagram capabilities might be a good move for selling to the younger set, too.) Unlike our previous experience with Canvas On Demand, this time we were able to easily preview our selected photo, see what it would look like to apply a black-and-white or sepia effect, and see how it would look with a color blur, image, black, or white edge.

The next screen told us that we could add a Professional Review for $9.95, which would include personalized suggestions and a satisfaction guarantee that gives a reprint at no additional cost if the final product is less-than-perfect. Then, we had the choice of adding Retouching services for an extra $19.95; this includes removing redeye/date stamps, teeth whitening/removing facial blemishes, sharpening/enhancing the image, and so on.

When we got to the order summary page, we weren't thrilled that our shipping costs were $14.90 on a canvas print that cost $28. Canvas On Demand doesn't have a standard list of shipping fees; instead, you have to add items to your shopping cart to get an "estimated shipping rate". We'd definitely prefer to know the cost upfront, like many of their competitors provide.

Despite all of these seemingly negative points, why does Canvas On Demand still earn a 3.5-star rating? That's an easy answer: customer satisfaction. We found thousands of reviews from extremely happy shoppers, with almost all of them giving this business a perfect rating in terms of quality, customer service, and timely delivery. This reputation is further strengthened by an "A+" rating with the Better Business Bureau.

While you probably will pay more for it, your canvas print from Canvas on Demand is likely to exceed your expectations and be a beautiful addition to your home or office decor.

CANVAS POP

For almost 10 years, Canvas Pop has been an innovator in the canvas prints market. They were the first canvas printing service to offer Instagram and Facebook photo printing - which has now become a hallmark of most top-rated print companies.

You'll find them mentioned in the New York Times, on Good Morning America, and many other places. Here's why:

  • "100% Absolute Love Guarantee" - no time limit, no fine print. If you don't love your print, they'll either send you a replacement or give you a full refund.
  • Free digital proofs - see exactly how your print is going to look before it goes into production.
  • Free retouching
  • Any resolution image, any size - their experts will help you make it look great.
  • Commitment to gallery-quality canvas printing, with every project handcrafted in the US.

What about the actual process of designing and ordering a canvas print? It doesn't get easier: select a saved image on your device, or choose one from IG or FB. Ours loaded very quickly from our laptop. Once you choose the size, you'll need to select your frame and edge options. We loved how Canvas Pop shows photos of what each option looks like, making it so much easier to visualize our project. Rolled canvas is the default; if you want a frame, it'll add from $21 to $46, depending on the depth and color you want. Or, if you want a black border, white border, or photo wrap, those are available at no extra charge. Add a digital proof for free by entering the desired email address for its delivery.

Finally, if you want any filters/effects or advanced design services, make sure to expand the Advanced Options section. You do have to pay extra for things like whitening teeth or removing people from a photo; prices range from $9.95 to $49.95, depending on the level of services you're requesting.

Pricing was affordable. For our image, we were given 4 suggested sizes ranging from 8x10 to 30x40, at costs from $33 to $169. As we browsed the Canvas Pop site, we got a pop-up offer of a 45% discount. Unlike most website pop-ups, this one didn't require an email address and/or newsletter subscription to get the discount. Instead, we were taken to Canvas Pop's Coupons and Deals page where we found the coupon code for our discount. We liked that! Plus, if you happen to be a designer, photographer, or artist, get in touch with their support team for additional savings, because Canvas Pop "loves supporting great art and design".

There are two shipping options: $14.00 for standard shipping and $39.00 for rush shipping. Standard has a production time of 5-7 days, plus 3-7 business days for delivery, while rush comes with a 3-day production time and 4 business day delivery window.

What do people have to say about Canvas Pop? Check out social media for yourself: you'll find lots of glowing comments on their Facebook and Twitter feeds. Everywhere we looked, their reputation was fantastic. This reputation would be even better if, in the future, Canvas Pop can also secure a rating and/or accreditation with the Better Business Bureau; they had no rating (positive or negative) at the time of our review.

Canvas Pop is a company that genuinely cares about the quality of the products they sell and about their customers. We're sure you'll enjoy your experience if you select their services for your canvas prints.

Best Canvas Prints

To help you find the Best Canvas Prints, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth comparison of Canvas On Demand and Canvas Pop.

Who has the best Canvas Prints? Gone are the days where the best way to display a treasured photograph was in a traditional frame. Most home decoration TV shows, magazines, and websites feature canvas prints as the most modern-yet-elegant format for showing off your children, favorite scenic shots from a vacation, or even spotlighting your four-legged family members.

Using a canvas print takes your images from a flat, two-dimensional aspect and pops them out as a 3-D work of art. Whether you're buying a canvas print for yourself or as a gift to commemorate a special occasion, ordering it online can save you time and money while still resulting in the pixel-perfect quality you'd expect if you entrusted the project to a local photographer and print shop.

When working with an online supplier of canvas prints, you'll find that the best websites will walk you through everything you need to know - from how to select an ideal image, the best canvas size for your selected photograph, which framing to use, and which touch-up services like fixing color balance or adding text elements might give it a special touch.

How can you tell which canvas print company you should use for your next project? Services vary widely, so as you decide which one would meet your needs, keep these factors in mind:

  • Pricing. How much will you pay for the print size you want? Does the company offer any discounts, free or reduced-cost shipping, or other perks that can make it even more affordable? How much will you pay for upgrades like contrast balancing or other features?
  • Reputation. What do previous customers have to say about the quality of the canvas prints they purchased? Does the company have a rating with the BBB?
  • Simplicity. Does the company's website make it as frustration-free as possible to upload your photos and get your canvas print ordered quickly? Is it easy to make changes, add customization, or fix flaws in the photo?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Canvas Print stores available today. We hope this information helps you design the right canvas print for your home, office, or gift-giving needs!



Types of Pictures That Make Good Canvas Prints

We've all had a "Kodak" moment. Maybe it was the first time you saw a baby fawn taking its first steps in a field. Maybe it was that fantastic waterfall you encountered at the end of a hike in the wilderness. Or maybe it was just your grandma, sitting on her rocking chair on the front porch of her hundred-year-old home. Whatever the moment, we've all had one where we just knew it would make a memorable photo.

Photos that can only be classified as "Kodak" moments definitely are the kinds that make excellent canvas art.

But what, exactly, is canvas art?

Canvas art is created through a specialized printer which requires special eight to 12 color inkjet printers containing UV-resistant ink. You want to use UV-resistant ink because if the canvas will be hung on a wall, it most likely will at some point be exposed to sunlight, which can cause it to fade. UV-resistant ink helps to slow the fading process. The printer is designed to accommodate canvas, which is heavier than most of the kinds of paper we use in our home and office printers.

A high-resolution photo or digital image is then taken, scanned into a computer, and printed onto the canvas with the special printer.

Once you understand the process, it is much easier to choose photos or digital images which would lend themselves to the creation of a good canvas piece.

The first step in choosing a picture that would make a good canvas print is to make sure the image being used is of a high resolution. Most new cameras are capable of 8 to 12 megapixel images, with more expensive digital SLR cameras able to produce even higher resolutions. The general rule of thumb is if the image isn't at least 350 dpi (dots per inch), it will not reproduce well onto canvas. If you are unsure whether your photo or digital image is of good enough quality for printing onto canvas, consider consulting a professional photographer or canvas art business before placing an order. They should be able to review the image or print photo and tell you if it will reproduce well.

If the quality of the photo is acceptable, you also may want to ask the printing company if they are able to edit or "brush up" the photo for you. Issues like red eye, smears and even dust on the lens of the camera can transfer to your canvas art. These are all things that with the right photo-editing equipment - such as Photoshop - can be altered to create a better-looking image.

Among some of the images which have found their way onto canvas include:

  • Family portraits
  • Portraits of pets
  • Skyline photos, particularly at sunset or sunrise
  • Landscape photos
  • Waterfalls, lakes or the ocean
  • Wildlife

The list of what can be transferred to canvas is endless and truly depends on the taste of the individual who is ordering the piece.
