Printcopia

Remember this picture?


It was taken back in December of 2010, it is one of my favorite photos of Willow. She looks so content, snoozing in front of the fire on her special LL Bean cat mat. I just love this picture, so when I was approached by Printcopia to review a printed canvas, can you guess what picture I chose?

Printcopia, is an online company that specializes in photo to canvas printing, or as they state on their website, "transform your photos into stunning pieces of art." They do all sorts of prints from basic to special acrylic style and panoramic as well as canvas printing.

The process of getting my canvas printed was a breeze. The website is simple to navigate and they give you all sorts of options (but they don't inundate you with them). First you choose the size, which was easy for me because I was given the 8" x 10" to review.


The second step is to upload the image, or you can pull it from Facebook or Instagram.


Then you select the desired style for the edge and display option. I went with the black edge border as I like the look of the solid border better than the image wrap or mirror image. 


And the last step is to select any special options. 


Then it's a matter of going through the payment process and you're done! The hardest part is waiting for the finished product to be delivered. Thankfully, I didn't have long to wait as it was delivered 3 days earlier than the estimated delivery date.

First impressions are really important to me. The true first impression was the easy to navigate website. The next was the quality of the shipping carton when it arrived at my door. The box was in perfect condition, not a dent or ding. Sturdy corrugated cardboard was used and the print was packaged very well, so it arrived in perfect shape.

Take a look at the finished print!


The photo really pops off the canvas, it's so vivid! My first reaction was "WOW!" The matte finish really makes it easy to see from any angle in the room (no glossy reflections).


The black edge border is nice, as it gives the picture a bit more depth from the wall. 

Having my beautiful Willow on a canvas print is such a treasure! This is certainly an example of a photo being transformed into a stunning piece of art. She will hang on my bedroom wall, right under my Max print. Thank you Printcopia for creating such an awesome product. I love it!!
