Canvas print review + giveaway!

Canvas prints are a great way to take your favorite photo and give it a more artistic feel. Signazon offers quality canvas prints and allows you to choose any custom size you would like (so none of your photo has to get cropped, like with other print services.)

The prints can be ordered unmounted, or with the gallery wrap, or grommets to hang.

I decided to get my all time favorite photo that I took of the Colosseum when I was in Rome on my birthday three years ago. That 4x6" I've had all these years simply did not do it justice.

Because I'd read other reviews that had stated they found the prints to be a bit darker than they looked on their screen (which makes sense) I adjusted the exposure and increased the saturation a bit. It proved to be a good idea, and the print came out as I'd hoped.

I wanted to have the gallery wrap feature, and I was pleased to see that an extra border was added to the print so none of the image gets cropped in the wrap.

This photo was taken with my old camera, the 12.2 MP Rebel XSi, so I really couldn't print any larger than 12"x18" without sacrificing image quality.

Overall I am very pleased with my canvas print, my contact at Signazon was very helpful and accommodating, processing and shipment times were very reasonable, and I will happily stare at this print for many years to come.

Signazon is offering one reader a chance to win a beautiful canvas print of their own, so scroll down to enter!

Contest is open to US residents only, one winner will receive an unmounted canvas print in any size they would like. Please bare in mind that large format prints need high resolution photographs.

Signazon provided me with the canvas print and a discounted price on the gallery wrap for the purpose of this review. My views and opinions are my own.

fun! I just got my first gallery wrap & it's so cool on the gallery wall I've created.
Also, that little gold tray you have on the table looks exactly like the one I have that my parent's wedding anniversary has been housed in for 40+ years!

Wow, your photo came out beautiful in the print. (I can totally see why you wanted to use that photo, it's a beautiful picture and I love the night scene.) It also works perfectly with the rest of your decor!

I love the photo of of the collisium. I probably didn't spell it right. And yes....that leather from forever 21 is probably the only thing ever they'll make in leather with a 3digit price tag because it did not do well.
