"One of your photos on canvas. Makes your photos more like "real art"! I was completely blown away by the first Canvas Print I designed and ordered. It arrived and seriously looked like an artist had done a portrait on canvas. I gave it to my mom for Mother's Day! She absolutely loves it. I was even more blown away by the second Canvas Print I designed and ordered. I gave this one to my wife as a gift. It is the first picture of us she has wanted to display in our home. She is very picky when it comes to pictures, photos and artwork. She loves the canvas, the picture quality and the thick frame. The Canvas Print is a conversation piece. Everyone who comes to our home asks about and typically throws out compliments. I used different frames on each, which gave each a distinct look. I will be making some more art via the Design Your Own Canvas Print in the very near future. I highly recommend."
"I am a retired professional photographer. It should go without saying that I grew up in the film age. In the age of film paper and chemicals we would print on the paper separate the image layer of the paper from the backing. Heat and pressure mount the emulsion side to the canvas stretch it and attach it to the stretcher frame. We would then spray with a lacquer to give the appearance of a brush stroke. So much for history. I've had some experience now with the digital age and the newer canvas printing methods and I can say that Shutterfly canvas prints are as good (for the most part) as prints coming out of the pro labs. Given a good or marginally good image Shutterfly will return you a good print. So with all this praise I have given Shutterfly why only four stars? The question of archival quality or how long the print will retain its color quality has not yet been answered to my satisfaction. I will get back to you when I turn 165 with my answer. In the meanwhile go ahead and order the prints from Shutterfly."
"This is going to be a Christmas gift for my daughter and her family. I gave it four stars because the print turned out a little darker than the actual photo. It did not appear that way when I ordered on-line and I did not see any recommendations or disclaimers to that effect. If I do order again, I will keep it in mind."
"I had a picture made of my kids when they were little for a gift for my parents. It came our so nice!"
"I was so pleased with how my canvas turned out!! The quality is exceptional and was exactly the look I was wanting! When ordering was given the warning that the image may be blurred due to original pixel size; however that is not noticeable on the canvas."

Custom canvas prints are versatile and look good whether they are arranged in collages, multi-panels, or single scenes on your wall. Follow these simple steps to hang your photos:
• Locate the perfect space for your print.
• Use a measuring tape to figure out where you want your print to be placed, then gently mark the spot with a pencil.
• Hammer a sturdy nail into the wall at the pencil mark.
• Hang your photo on the nail (it may take a couple of tries to snag the hook on the back).
• Adjust your photo as needed, using a leveler to ensure that it hangs straight.
Although measuring beforehand may seem tedious, it will save you time, effort, and multiple nail holes in the long run. Unsure what size will work for your space? Check out our guide on how to pick the right canvas size and what is a canvas print?
