Great print and a surprise giveaway from CanvasPop!
Few weeks ago I was contacted by Liam from CanvasPop with an interesting offer: they would offer me a free large framed print, in exchange for an honest review of the product. I agreed immediately and I started to think which one of my images would look nice on our living wall. This is quite a difficult process as everyone tends to be so emotionally attached to their own work. In the end we decided to go with the classical view of Hamnøya village in Lofoten islands, an image so dear to us due to the memories that evokes: an amazing holiday in one of the most photogenic places on earth, where Carmen and I had such an amazing time. So I emailed the large format file to Liam and patiently waited to receive the print.
We got it on Thursday packed nicely in a big cardboard box, covered with bubble wrap to avoid any damage due to the transportation. And the packaging fulfilled its mission as the print arrived in very good conditions, without any damage. The box contained the print itself and the nails and some supports to help hanging. I already had the nail on the wall ( under an ugly painting that was already there in our rental apartment) so we haven’t used those nails, but it is nice for CanvasPop guys to think about it. The hanging process went very fast, the print having a wire on its back that we easily placed it on the existing nail.
The print is looking great and very professional. The paper itself is very good quality, the print is done well and respected the colors of my original image, without the strange tints or artifacts that cheap printing services tend to produce. The passé-partout is well cut, 2.5″ wide, in white color that contrast nicely with the black frame. We opted for a black frame and we were impressed by the quality of it. I was checking some framing services here in Copenhagen in the past and I was not totally satisfied with their offer, but this frame is really great and we like it a lot. The print is covered by plexiglass to avoid collecting dust.
So to conclude this review, I must say that we were really impressed by the quality of the product. It was very carefully crafted “with love” as it was written on a small label placed on the box. It will definitely be an option for us in the future, whenever we will consider printing an image in large format, with the purpose of hanging it on a wall. Thank you guys so much and keep up the good work!
