Selena Thinking Out Loud With Purpose knows how the special moments in our lives make us who we are. Those moments create new relationships, expand our imagination, and give us peace of mind through words or quotes in our times of uncertainty. Recently, I was given the opportunity to capture a special quote that I love, on canvas, by Printcopia.com.
PRINTCOPIA.COM 8x10 CANVAS REVIEW from
Selena Thinking Out Loud With Purpose
Selecting and Preparing my Photo for a Printcopia Canvas
First, I decided on the quote in the photo here, for my canvas because I really enjoy motivating quotes and having them up on the walls in my home for inspiration.
After choosing my photo, I was given options for how i would like the edges of my canvas to appear. I chose the 'border color' option in black because it goes very nicely with my furniture. I then chose a display option for my canvas and went with my usual way of hanging things by standard wall hanger.
(Note: If you feel that your photo needs retouching you can choose one of those options.)
During the Entire Process I Liked:
- that there was a *BACK* button in case I wanted to change my image or any of the settings for my photo
- a green bar that shows how good the quality of the photo is before printing
- provided wall mounts for displaying my canvas
- a 'proof' of the final product
Lastly, I was on to choosing my shipping. Printcopia.com shipping prices are based on the urgency of your delivery and you are provided a date of when it is projected to arrive. I like this format because I can choose my shipping costs based on the urgency of an event, birthday, or if it's a "just because" type purchase for me!
Once my order was complete, I received an email confirmation with my order # and tracking information to print.
Using Printcopia Customer Service
A great customer service staff is important to the everyday operations of any company. Printcopia.com customer service seeks to improve your photo 'even more' before printing. A service staff contacted me via email to see if I could increase the resolution of my photo a little more and after I did this I uploaded it to the email request and sent it back to them. They immediately resubmitted the image for my order and it continued through the printing process. They were so accessible and easy to work with!
The Day My Photo on Canvas Arrived
I was pretty surprised how fast it arrived. I chose the basic shipping and it came within about 5 business days. I received my canvas via UPS and was SO excited to see what it looked like. It was well wrapped in paper and plastic as shown:
The quality of the canvas was great! It reminded me of a canvas I would paint on with acrylics. The color of the photo, I selected, popped off the canvas and the words were crisp and clear. I loved it So much that I sat it up in my living room next to my red vase . It really seems to love that spot. Now, every time I walk into my living room I look over at my canvas and read that beautiful quote:
"Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right and forget about the ones who don't.
that everything happens for a reason...
if you get a chance - take it;
if it changes your life - let it.
Nobody said that it would be easy...
They just promised
it would be worth it."
