Easy Canvas Prints Review and GIVEAWAY!

I take a lot of photos, but for some reason, I almost never print them out! My computer is full of digital photos (Yes, I have them backed up.) So, when I was contacted by Easy Canvas Prints about reviewing their product, I figured, "Why not?"  I had a couple of beautiful shots of the kids from this summer, so I ordered 8 x 10's of two of my favorites. I was given one for free, but I figured I couldn't get just one of the kids' photos in canvas--(The other would be hurt!)

Kyle's arrived first...

The photo of the canvas doesn't really do it justice (too bright), but the colors on the actual canvas are really beautiful.  The most notable thing beside the content of the photo is the texture of a canvas print; in certain light, you will notice it quite a bit. It you're going to be shining a spotlight on your canvas or staring at it from less than arm's length, you will be distracted by the texture. However, up on the mantel or from a natural distance, the texture lends a unique characteristic that I like a lot.

Here's Kendall's (which arrived a few days after Kyle's). Keep in mind, this photo is taken just a foot-and-a-half away from the canvas. I just wanted you to see the texture.

 Here's a shot of them from a natural distance away, as well as on our fireplace mantel (maybe 3 feet away).

And just so you know, Kendall was lying on a bright pink beach towel, so yes; 
the photo is pinkish, but I liked it that way, so I did not adjust the color.

Megan, from Easy Canvas Prints, was terrific to work with, 
but I really didn't need a lot of help; the site is very user-friendly. 
Easy Canvas Prints was rolled out last January, and the company prides itself on excellent customer service, as well as quality prints and competitive prices.
I have not shopped around for canvas prints.
In case you're curious (and I know you are), I paid $33.53 for Kendall's 
(including free shipping and the 25% discount available to everyone right now).
My only regret is that I didn't order stands for my prints, but I'm guessing there's an easy fix for that.
