PHOTO CANVAS LAND

At first, Photo Canvas Land looks like a good-if-outdated site for buying Canvas Prints. Our photo loaded quickly into their canvas print creator tool, and we were given a recommended set of canvas sizes based on our image ratio (which we didn't get with many of the other sites we reviewed). The total number of available canvas sizes was impressive: 13 in our recommended set, plus an additional 27 in other aspect ratios.

We could choose among a rolled canvas, or between wraps with thicknesses of 0.75" or 1.5". Next, we could choose bleed options with or without mirror, black sides or white sides. Premium options included black dust cover/hanging wire/bumpers, and Matte Fine Art Coating. Everything looked great. We were even happier to see all of their product pricing clearly displayed, along with everyday low shipping costs of $8.95 for a timeframe of 4 business days and $24.95 for expediting shipping within 2 business days. These prices would have put Photo Canvas Land far out in front of most companies offering canvas prints.

But, we started noticing details that left us wondering if Photo Canvas Land is still in business. First, when we tried calling the "Contact Us" number on the site, we got a generic voicemail that didn't even mention the company. Then, when we looked up the physical address for the business, it looked like the unit where it used to be located was vacant in the photo on Google Maps. All of the customer testimonials on the website are dated 2017 or earlier, and there are no posts to the company's Facebook page after 2017 either.

It didn't get any easier. We couldn't find a listing for Photo Canvas Land with the Better Business Bureau, and there were no current, verified customer reviews - positive or negative - to consider.

If Photo Canvas Land is legitimately up and running, we think their pricing looks amazing. But, with every indication that they've closed their doors, we can't recommend them for your canvas print order.

Best Canvas Prints

To help you find the Best Canvas Prints, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth Photo Canvas Land Review.

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.
