Hi everyone! Thanks for reading my post last week about my adventures in the opera Turandot. I had a lot of fun reminiscing about it, and I’m looking forward to sharing more experiences with you. 🙂 But right now it’s time to turn our thoughts toward…Mother’s Day!
We had a great experience ordering a photo on canvas from Easy Canvas Prints a while back, and thought we’d share with you why it’s the perfect choice for a Mother’s Day gift.
Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 14th!
And means it’s time to find a “Kreative” gift to give to the wonderful woman who raised you.
But oh no! You can’t seem to find just the right thing. Nothing is calling out to you. Nothing seems to suit her. Nothing is personal enough. After all, what could you get her that she couldn’t just buy herself?
Well, if your mom is like either of our moms, she always appreciates a picture of her loved ones. With so many digital photos on our phones nowadays, it can be hard for a mom to get around to finding the perfect picture of the family, printing it out, putting it in a frame, and hanging it up on the wall.
That’s why, when my mother-in-law mentioned she wanted a canvas print last year, I put it in the back of my mind to remember for a Christmas gift from me and the hubby. I already knew the exact picture she wanted (of me, my husband, and sister-in-law); I just had to find the right company to do it.
I researched several companies, reading reviews on them, searching for deals, and trying out their canvas-creating interfaces.
I settled on Easy Canvas Prints, because of several factors:
The ease of use. Creating a personalized photo canvas should be easy. Yes, I am a bit artistic, and once I even took a Lynda.com course to
master try to learn Adobe Illustrator (#failed), but that doesn’t mean that I know how to use complicated software for editing my photos to put on a canvas. While while looking around at canvas photo companies, I came across some that were either too difficult, too time-consuming, or took too long to load. Luckily, I found Easy Canvas Prints, which has a super-easy interface that allows you to rotate, crop, or edit the color of the photo, as well as add on a border, frame, or wall hanging system.
The quick turnaround time. I didn’t want to wait forever to get my canvas print – after all, I had to get it back in time to wrap it for Christmas! But thankfully, the turnaround time for Easy Canvas Prints was FAST. The canvas shipped within only 6 days of placing my order, complete with an email that sent me a tracking number to check the status, and that was WITHOUT additional expedited shipping.
If you’re in a real hurry (perhaps you waited until the last minute to buy your Mother’s Day gift? Not that anyone would ever do that…), then Easy Canvas Prints even has some expedited options that can get your canvas to you within only two days! Expediting does run a bit of extra cash, but I recently saw on Easy Canvas Prints’ website that they have a special delivery option available where your canvas will be guaranteed delivery by Mother’s Day for only $10.99. (Per their website: Please note orders placed after 4PM (CST) will count as an order for the next day.)
The reasonable price. When we purchased the canvas at Christmas for my mother-in-law, we were looking for something that would be high-quality, but also wouldn’t break the bank. Easy Canvas Prints offered both. And here’s a picture of the final product to prove it!
FYI – we did the 16″ x 20″, which was a perfect size for us. Not too big, not too small. We also went with a 1.5″ border in grey, as you can see in the side view picture below.
