Editor’s Key Takeaways: Exploring Affordable Canvas Services at Easy Canvas Prints

Easy Canvas Print Review

In this PhotoWorkout review, the author discusses their experience with Easy Canvas Prints, a print-on-demand canvas service. The Austin, Texas-based company, with a decade’s worth of experience, has seen its service promoted by big names such as PDN and NBC. It offers competitive pricing and a streamlined user interface.

  • The website interface guides users directly to a ‘create your canvas’ editor, which allows customers to place and modify their orders. It includes a widget that provides a preview of how the final print might look scaled-to-size in a living room setting, considered a beneficial feature by the author, particularly for estimating sizes and spaces.
  • The site also offers special-priced canvas wall display packs and collage options, which come with interactive online previews. Users can upload their chosen image, and it’s automatically inserted into the preview.
  • Despite its advantages, the author found some limitations with the service. Meghan, the author, desired more advanced editing options, as the ones currently offered didn’t fully meet their needs. She recommends these advanced options for professional photographers or those with greater editing needs.

At PhotoWorkout, we’ve reviewed a number of different print-on-demand canvas services. Each has its own set of perks and pains to take into consideration before purchasing. None of them, however, come at the incredible prices offered at Easy Canvas Prints.

With ten years’ experience under its belt, the Austin, TX-based company has been featured and promoted by big names including PDN and NBC.

But can its canvas earn our seal of approval? We’ll delve into every step of the Easy Canvas Prints process to find out.

Easy Canvas Prints is probably the lowest price canvas print you can get, but the quality and delivery time do suffer. Hence, if you want quality, you should opt for canvas printers like Pictorem, Canvaspop, or CanvasDiscount.

Getting a Lay of the Land

My first task was to determine whether Easy Canvas Prints lived up to its name. So, off I went to their website.

My initial impression was that their interface was simple, almost to a fault. Options guide users straight to a ‘create your canvas’ editor, which allows you to submit and alter your order(s). This widget includes a graphic illustrating what your photograph will look like, scaled to a living room setting.

For me, this was a particularly helpful feature – despite the years I’ve spent printing photographs and working in gallery spaces, I am atrocious at estimating sizes and spaces. It’s silly, but seeing exactly how my submission would fit into my living room significantly helped in choosing a piece that best fit my needs and wants.

As I uploaded my desired image, I noticed that the site had a number of specially priced canvas wall display packs as well as collage options for those seeking something a bit less traditional. These options also included interactive online previews (though without the scaled living room setup).

Making adjustments turned out to be pretty simple. Clicking on a designated space prompts an upload dialogue box which automatically inserts your desired file into the preview.

Easy Canvas Prints’ discounted prices make it one of the most affordable canvas options around.

Personally, there were a few areas in which I found myself wishing for some more advanced editing options. But for the most part, EasyCanvasPrints.com made some excellent UI choices. Working with canvas can be a really intimidating feat, but this website has managed to present its products as approachable, easy to take on pieces.

The Deal of the Century?

One of the most appealing aspects of an Easy Canvas Prints canvas is its supposed affordability. In fact, the prices that I found were so incredible that I couldn’t help but feel a bit skeptical. Are their deals really too good to be true?

In actuality, Easy Canvas Prints boasts pretty steep base prices. However, they are always offering significant markdowns on their merchandise. Oftentimes, their work is sold at over a 90% discount. On the surface, this seems great.

After all, who doesn’t love a good sale? However, their constantly shifting prices can be misleading and make it hard to know how much customers should expect to pay between orders. It seems slightly disingenuous to advertise that a piece normally sells for $181 when in reality it rarely costs customers more than $30.

Easy Canvas Prints has a few framing options, border effects, and wrapping styles available – if you’re willing to pay the price.

That aside, the Easy Canvas Prints canvas does, in fact, stay true to their bargain prices – but only if you get the bare minimum. Anything beyond the most basic order has surcharges that will bring the price of your purchase up. Even simple hanging materials (i.e. a simple nail and hook) will tack on an extra $0.40.

My On-Demand Canvas Order

In short, the job seemed a bit amateurish and bare-bones.

Everyone wants to capitalize on a great deal when it presents itself – that’s where the appeal lies in Easy Canvas Prints canvas. However, a bargain is only a bargain if the quality of the product in question lives up to the price in question. Easy Canvas Prints certainly talks the talk, but can it walk the walk as well?

Limited Design & Customization Options

Going through the ordering process, I noticed that Easy Canvas Prints had very limited design options available to its customers. There are very few wrapping, post-production tweaks, and border options available once you’ve made an image and sizing decision.

Furthermore, there’s a relatively limited selection of products available outside traditional canvas prints. While none of those qualities are telling of the product, it does show a lack of versatility and flexibility on the production side of things.

Those looking into purchasing a piece through Easy Canvas Prints should heed a warning that the site does not seem especially equipped to deal with special orders or custom requests.

Long Delivery Times & Average Quality

After a few weeks in transit, the canvas that I ordered finally arrived at my doorstep. Unfortunately, I do have a few gripes to share about what I received.

Perhaps I have higher expectations, having made satisfactory purchases from other on-demand canvas printers, but there were a few issues that left me less than impressed.

In short, the job seemed a bit amateurish and bare-bones. The binding was a bit sloppy and uneven. The canvas material felt more like a plastic blend than the linen I would have expected. I might have overlooked those flaws if it weren’t for the fact that the print I received simply wasn’t up to par.

Few Quality Issues

Despite forwarding a high-res JPEG and ordering a relatively small size (16″x20″), the picture didn’t look quite right. I realize that due to the nature of the material, getting a pin-sharp image is difficult to attain. However, my order almost seemed pixelated. It’s possible that the file I sent was too small, resulting in poor image quality via enlarging. Even if this were the case, most sites have mechanisms in place to warn users if they’ve submitted potentially problematic pictures.

Based on my experience, I would not recommend this to any individual looking to flaunt their piece in a gallery or professional setting. However, despite my complaints, Easy Canvas Prints might be acceptable for some home and informal settings – especially given its inexpensive price.

Final Thoughts

The Prices are virtually unbeatable.

There’s no denying that Easy Canvas Prints has some fantastic advantages. Obviously, the prices that they offer are virtually unbeatable. Regardless of what you’re looking for, their deals are significantly less expensive than what other printers have to offer.

Easy Canvas Prints Final Review: Low Price, but with Quality Issues

For comparably sized prints from Snapfish and Shutterfly, the price tag is almost double that of Easy Canvas Prints. What’s more, they boast an easy-to-navigate website that takes away some intimidation of ordering a large piece of art.

However, there are some serious quality issues that the company will have to work out if they hope to live up to some of the more popular brands available. The look and feel of the order just doesn’t live up to the competition upon close examination.

In addition, there are very few customization options for those looking for something a little off the beaten path.

There are plenty of positives to Easy Canvas Prints canvas, but they don’t necessarily outweigh the faults.

I feel that I can’t complain too much about what Easy Canvas Prints brings to the table. Canvas prints can be an expensive endeavor, and their service makes it accessible for anyone. For those looking to experiment with large formats or new materials, Easy Canvas Prints could turn out to be an excellent option.

That being said, I’m not certain that economical prices and a friendly atmosphere make up for some of the aesthetic issues I ran into.

My advice? Tread lightly. There are plenty of positives to Easy Canvas Prints canvas, but they don’t necessarily outweigh the faults.

  1. I ordered a custom sized 30×37”, extra laminated finish and added professional staff oversight for my admittedly very unusual photo. Of a very detailed painting I photographed and edited in Photoshop and added tiny text in Adobe Illustrator, saved in sRGB standard color format. For about $120 incl. shipping (more than a basic order price).
    I was blown away at the quality and faithfulness! It looks exactly like the painting, the colors and details.
    My only advice is be aware of the limits of printing tiny text in a photo, as it converts it to pixels. It’s your the customer responsibility making the file resolution high enough (within their ~45MB compressed JPG file size limits) to print readable on canvas. And mine did!

  2. I recently wrote a review stating that one of my canvas prints was not true to the original. Upon checking the photo I sent I found that the error was mine! The photo I sent was not true to the print. Your print was true to the photo! Please attach this to my review. You actually did a great job!

  3. Just received my order from Easy Canvas Prints only to find that my Grandson at the wheel of a locomotive was now an infant girl nestled in a lariat. Was not happy at all with the smug service I received spewing rehearsed lines of “I know how you must feel.” No they do not! This was a gift ordered with a specific timeline in mind that will in no way be rectified in a timely fashion. Truly my last order from them.

      Pictorem stands at the forefront of large-scale printing, accommodating prints up to 100 inches for canvas rolls and 96 inches for stretched canvases – these dimensions are among the largest we’ve encountered.
      However, it’s important to bear in mind that both printer capabilities and transportation logistics present certain constraints when it comes to exceeding the 100-inch mark. Nevertheless, a potential workaround might involve the amalgamation of individual panels to create a larger composite piece.

      1. Thank you. I may have to segment the image, but I created a collage of artwork that is 18″ x 110″, and can be scaled to half that. Either way, getting a custom size over 48″ long is difficult to find. Thank you for this lead! I’ll look into it.

  4. I got my prints back and was so impressed by the quality! As I sit and look at this beach photo, I feel drawn back to the day I took it! It was my last trip with my brother, just prior to his death so this picture is so special! Thank you for keeping that memory so alive! Everyone was very impressed! I will share your email address with my friends for sure!
