As a splendid dog parent, we all know you have a gazillion images of your pet on your phone. Don’t even try to deny it. Sometimes the photos are just so darn good that making it your phone’s home screen image and sharing it on Facebook aren’t nearly enough. It’s time to put that picture, or even multiple pictures, on canvas prints.
I was recently given the opportunity to review a service, Printcopia, that easily takes your online images and converts them in to canvas prints. I chose to submit one of my favorite photos of my girls to be printed on an 8″ by 10″ wrapped canvas.
I couldn’t be more pleased with the final product!
The photo to canvas process
Printcopia’s canvas print designer online feature has four steps and was very easy to use.
1) First you choose a size. There are nine pre-set canvas sizes, or you may choose a custom size canvas. There are also two canvas thickness options, which refer to the depth of the side borders of the canvas.
2) Next you choose an image. You may upload an image from your computer, or you can pull a picture directly from your Instagram or Facebook account. You can then adjust the image until it fits as you would like on the canvas size you choose.
3) The next step is to choose a style. This refers to choosing how you want the side border to look. It can be a mirror image of your photo, your photo can extend on to your side borders (which we opted for), or you can pick a color to be on the side borders.
4) The last option is to choose some optional extras like having a black and white or sepia color finish, or having Princopia do a bit of image retouching for you.
Each step of the way you get the option to make fine tuned adjustments to your photo positioning to make it look its best with the options you’ve chosen.
We would like to share our love of this fun service with DogSplendor readers by giving away one 8″ x 10″ canvas print (retail value $56.78). Please note the print may only be shipped within the continental U.S.
We will be using Rafflecopter to facilitate the giveaway and a random entrant will be chosen from eligible entrants at midnight Pacific Time on Saturday, March 30, 2013. The winner will be notified by mail by noon on March 30th.
As part of the Rafflecopter entry options, you may follow Printcopia on Facebook. They seem to always be having fantastic deals, and offer other photo/printing options other than canvas prints, so I highly recommend this option! Since I was very pleased with the service from Printcopia, I also wanted to give a quick shout out to their sister sites for car magnets, banners, and bandit/yard signs.
