CanvasPop Review: Ordering a Canvas Print
I couldn’t resist ordering a canvas print from CanvasPop.com to see how it turned out. So here we go…read my detailed and honest CanvasPop Review…
CanvasPop has offices and printing factories in Las Vegas (US) & Ottawa (Canada) and a shipping office in Europe. The company is expanding fast and recently raised over 3 million dollars to fuel their growth and expand the product lines (e.g. photo books, magnets & pillow prints). Currently Canvas Pop ships to US, Canada, and Europe.
Placing the Order: A Smooth & Easy Process
First, I picked an image I took from a recent trip to Norway. When traveling from Germany to Norway, you will cross the Øresund bridge which connects Denmark and Sweden. I thought this would make a cool canvas print.
Placing the order on CanvasPop.com was a piece of cake.
To start, you can put your email address or register first (so you have your orders in your account for re-ordering later). I just went ahead without a registration. I just inserted my email and uploaded the source image (the image had a resolution of 5,625 x 3,750 and a file size of 7.4 MB). You can also upload pictures straight from Instagram or Facebook.
Choosing the Frame & Edge Options
Next up, I had to select if I wanted to print a canvas print or a framed paper print.
I picked the canvas print and then selected the 12×16 inch (30×41 cm) canvas with a 0.8 inch (2cm) depth. Then, I selected the “photo wrap edge” option at no additional costs (other options are a black or a white order also without any additional cost). If you want your canvas to be even more stylish and classy, you may want to opt for a black, white, or even espresso-colored wooden frame.

Free Digital Proof
After selecting the frame and the edge option, I ticked the option “Send me a digital proof”:
✔ I’d like to receive a digital proof after I’ve ordered so that I can see exactly what my print will look like before it’s manufactured.
I wanted to make sure that the image looks good on the final canvas print. In fact, it did. The same day I placed the canvas order, I got the digital proof sent by email.

You can zoom in on your digital proof image, download it, request changes, or if all ok: approve it for print.
But let’s go back few steps. There are a few more photo touchup options you can pick from before you finish the order process and proceed to the checkout.
You can pick those touchup options …
