Photo Canvas

 I worked with two companies who offered me  free canvasses  in exchange of my honest review about their product and services.  The big photo canvass that measures 16x20  is from Mailpix and the three small ones is from other company that I previously worked with.

I was disappointed  with the crappy job I did on cropping the photo  on the big one.  I had a little difficulty doing the project at Mailpix.  For a not-so-technical-savvy like me, it took me a while to figure out how to  do it.  I like the tools at the other company better because  it is very user-friendly and  uploading and cropping your photo is not hard.  But I take full responsibility of the end result of the   product  because I did not pay attention to what it would look like when printed.

What I would suggest is for Mailpix to have a preview feature where they would present  the final  look of the project before  finalizing it for printing, that would be great.  Or they could even make suggestions how you could  improve your project.  Other than that, I think that  the quality of the materials they use  is worth the money you are paying for.
Anyhow, both companies offered high quality  photo canvasses.
Thanks a lot Mailpix! If you want to  get connected with them and get some updates of their deals, follow them  on Twitter and like them on Facebook.  Turning images into Memories is what Mailpix does best.

Thank you for sharing! I love custom items and I would love to blow up our picture and hang it on the wall. :)

Such great photos - love the shadow effect of the plants as well!

Teresa Martinez said...

I find the picture of your children very uniquely appealing specifically because of the unexpected way it turned out. Things do not need to be perfect to be perfectly beautiful.

Kung medyo nai-center lang yung photo ng kids mo, then mas maganda sana. But a thing need not be perfect to see its beauty.

Schotzy said...

Adorable.... nothing sweeter than gorgeous shots of our children!

Nice portrait, a very sweet couple.

Too bad their heads are cropped but otherwise, photo canvases are great. I've had a couple done as gifts for my sisters.

I love my Mailpix stuff! Actually sis, kahit naman you made a little mistake in cropping the photo, maganda pa rin yung canvass. :)

Jessica Cassidy said...

The photo canvass turned out beautiful Sis Rose besides the models are gorgeous :-) I never work with Mailpix but I did have free coupons that I use with 4x6 prints and love the result :-)

Julie said...

Like the photo.

Tingting Rimart said...

I would have known about the cropping issue you have with the big canvass. It still looks artsy.

Algene said...

Wow! Bongga naman, free photo canvass :) Ang cute naman ng mga photos na napa-frame mo. Certainly worth keeping!

KC said...

Gusto ko din try yan, Ate Rose.. Nakita ko kase sa Pinterest.. Kaso lagi ko nakakalimutan dumaan sa craft store para bumili ng canvas pag nasa labas kami.. Ang galing ng pagkakagawa ninyo! =)

Annesphamily said...

I love phamily photos! These are wonderful and I think you did a really great job! Have fun and enjoy your week!

Both have good quality, I must say.

Plus, the two kiddos are so adorable. ♥

I love how the light shines brightly through the window corner of the room. Beautiful canvas photos of the children. Looks like you did a great job with that. I would like to work with that media one day. Thanks for the tips, Rose.

Anni said...

It's interesting to see the difference between company's products, because they do differ! Sometimes it's worth to ├ąpay a bit more and get a better canvas, but sometimes the cheaper one is sufficient.
Great post!
