Canvas Factory Turns Photographs Into Great Gifts
By: Sarah R
“Say cheese!” Like many other parents, I am always trying to capture the precious moments with my young son. Where I struggle is finding the best way to display my photographs beyond my smartphone and computer screen. I am often overwhelmed by all the photo gift websites with their near-constant emails, difficult to navigate websites, and sub-par quality products.
Therefore, when I looked at the Canvas Factory web site (http://www.canvasfactory.com/ if you are from USA and http://www.canvasfactory.com/ca if you are from Canada), I was impressed by its clean graphics, the easy to navigate photo tools, and quick check-out process.
My son and I worked together to select a photo memory that he wanted to display on a canvas in his “big boy” bedroom. This very special photo shows us spraying my husband with a fire hose after his last military flight, a once in a lifetime honored tradition in his unit. The site provides a variety of sizes, shapes, and styles to fit the photo you select. I decided to lighten the photo as it appeared a little dark on my computer screen. One of my favorite options was selected what the sides of the canvas would look like – you can wrap the photograph around the sides, you can mirror the boundaries of the photo, or the tool can help you pick the “best match” color based on your photograph. I chose the latter and appreciated that I did not have to “eyeball” the correct shade of sky blue!
A few clicks and we were ready to check out. This process was super easy as well. I do a lot of online shopping and can get frustrated at the seemingly never-ending check out process. One area of improvement is the communication of production and shipping times. It was not apparent to me when I checked out how long it would take until the canvas arrived. I received a confirmation and shipping email which provided this information, but I think users would benefit from a more prominent reminder prior to check out.
When I received the package, my son and I opened excitedly together. The canvas itself is a good quality and nicer than others I have ordered in the past. My husband commented that he liked how they framed the back of it in black instead of leaving it open (and susceptible to damage). The vividness of the colors also stood out and made me regret lightening the photo based on the computer screen image. Lesson learned for the next one I order from the Canvas Factory, which will be soon since my son is now obsessed with decorating his other walls! The pricing does seem a little higher than other sites; however, I am so happy with the quality of the product that I think Canvas Factory will be my new “go to” site for transforming my digital images into great visuals for our home or for gifts.
