I am always looking for quality printing, and was thrilled when MyPix2Canvas asked if I would be willing to review one of their fine-art giclee prints.
MyPix2Canvas knows that I am passionate about photography, but what they don’t know is that I am kinda a wrapped canvas expert.
Well, I pretend to be. But my husband really is. 🙂
My husband has worked in the fine-art printing business for over fifteen years. He knows everything there is to know about quality printing, giclee printing, and wrapping canvas. So as you can imagine, when the print arrived, he gave it a very thorough inspection.
But first, here ‘s a look at the print I ordered:
First of all, I take color very seriously. I use a calibrated monitor, so it is very important to me that any prints I ever order match what I see on my screen. To me the canvas looked perfect, and the saturation and color were pristine. Oftentimes photo prints can appear dull and flat. The MyPix2Canvas print is vibrant, and it is obvious that quality ink was used.
Here’s some of the things my husband noticed:
The corners of the canvas are very clean and well rounded, giving the canvas a very polished look. Also a good quality cotton, or at least a cotton blend, was used for the canvas.
A solid wood was used in the stretchers, and they are as wide as those typically used by fine-art printers. Those are both wonderful qualities, as they can benefit the life and presentation of your canvas.
My husband also smelled and rubbed the canvas with his wet finger! Right away he knew that MyPix2Canvas had taken the time to add a coating to the print. This is very good news! You want your wrapped canvas protected from moisture and sunlight. You would be surprised how few printers now take this extra step.
Overall, I was incredibly impressed with MyPix2Canvas! Giclee prints and wrapped canvases are so popular right now, it’s nice to find a company who’s price and quality stand up against the competition!
