Printcopia Canvas Review & A "Reader's Choice" Giveaway!! {GIVEAWAY CLOSED}

{GIVEAWAY CLOSED 11/11/12}

We recently moved into a new home and have been enjoying the chance to purchase some new furniture and update our decor a bit. I love decorating with an eclectic mix of vintage, 1950's, modern and artistic home furnishings. I also love having great prints, artwork and photographs displayed in every room. It adds a personal touch and helps to sort of tie together these broad range of styles.

When hanging some of our prints and pictures in the new place - I realized that I have some great family photos displayed, but none of our wonderful, loving family dog Lucie!  Needless to say, I was glad to hear from the folks at Printcopia recently and get a chance to check out their gallery-quality canvas prints. I was given the opportunity to design my own 8x10 canvas print using my favorite photo of Lucie so that I could review their product and share information with you about Printcopia and also tell you about some of the other sites and products their family of companies has to offer.

Printcopia makes designing your own gallery-quality canvas prints super easy.  You can turn your favorite digital photos into great art to display in your home or office.  You can upload your digital photos or even create prints from photos on your Facebook and Instagram feeds! How cool is that?!!  Additionally - they offer photo printing, photos printed on acrylic panels, framed prints and panoramic framed prints.  I like that they use eco-friendly non-toxic inks. Their prices are reasonable, shipping is fast and free and all of their work is 100% guaranteed.

Here is the 8x10 landscape canvas I created, using my favorite photo of Lucie.  I chose the option for a black edge. You have several options on how thick you want the canvas, how you want to wrap the sides, and standard sizes from 8x8 up to 30x40 or a custom size of your choice. Your canvas will arrive with hardware already in place - ready to hang right out of the box!

I loved how my canvas print turned out. The colors are vibrant, the quality is top notch and it looks great.  I like the black edge; I think it makes the picture really pop against our gold walls.  I would recommend Printcopia to anyone looking for quality custom art for their home, office or to give as gifts. This is really a great alternative to buying boring, generic prints at home decor stores.  You become the artist with Printcopia!

I also discovered this company has several other sites where you can design and create custom items. They have the following sites that offer easy navigation, great prices and a chance to create unique custom items:

Magnets On the Cheap - A site where you can create custom car magnets for your vehicle. You could use these for anything you want to advertise. They also offer personal magnets too, like a "Just Married" magnetic sign for the bride & groom car - or custom magnets, where you can use your own design!

Signs On the Cheap - A site where you can create custom yard signs for just about anything - business, personal or political. It's totally up to you!

Banners On the Cheap - A site where you can create custom vinyl banners for business, parties and personal events, or whatever you need. You design it - they print it - great prices!

I like the canvas print from printcopies too. I'd use a picture from this summer of my 2 boys @ the lake to turn into a canvas piece of art. : )

And, for a magnet: I'd make an emergency contact magnet for babysitter's to have all our VIP #'s handy when they babysit.

I like the crispness of the acrylic prints. As for a custom sign....I'd perhaps create one that indicates wether or not its a good time to bother me in my room and put it on my bedroom door for the children

I think that I would make a welcome home banner for my soldier. But what I really love are the canvas prints! I would love to do one of those with our most recent family photo and put it in our living room.

My favorite is the BIG canvas, 30x40! For the magnets, it would be cool to have a separate set made with a picture of each of your kids- so you can identify the artist for each picture that goes on the fridge!

Honestly, I love the 8x10 canvas because it would fit perfectly in my living room where I was thinking about putting a canvas anyway =) I would also like to get a custom banner that my husband and I were talking about. He is an AZ Cardinals fan and I'm a SD Chargers fan...and we really want to somehow put the two teams together on a banner.
