Last Thanksgiving as our family gathered together to give thanks, we also couldn’t resist taking a few family photos. As we were snapping away a brilliant idea popped into my head for a Christmas present for my sister. A canvas print from the digital photo of her and her family. I have always loved the photos that are printed on canvas. They look to me like an artist painstakingly sat for hours and painted the picture with delight brush strokes, to achieve an exact replica of your photo. I only wish however, that I had known of Uprinting before I made my purchase. They have very reasonable prices on not only their canvas printing but on many printing services such as posters, greeting cards, wall graphics, and more.
UPrinting is more then just a site to upload your photo and create a fun project or gift. They can also help with Small Business Printing. Something that I have been contemplating opening in the near future. After creating many flyers for my sisters business, party invitations for friends, and blog designs for others I have been thinking of opening a small design business that would specialize in designs such as these. My only worry has been where to get them printed. With UPrinting’s 24 Hour Live support I am thinking where could I go wrong?
If 24 Hour support and reasonable prices is not enough they are also an Eco-Friendly printing company . They use recycled paper, recycle their own scrap paper as well as their ink waste, and they use vegetable/soy based ink. This company takes its role as a friend to our environment seriously. Any company that plays a part in saving our environment is a good company in my book.
I went through the process of ordering a canvas print so I could see how easy or hard it was (I did not actually place my order). Once you hit the “order prints now” button it is pretty simple. You select a standard or custom size for your item, the quantity you would like to order then move on to the photo upload portion. Once you have selected your file to upload there is a unique feature I was surprised to see. You can actually proof your file before it goes to print (this is not recommended for rush jobs). You may ask for a PDF proof before your file goes to print. This process usually takes 6-12 hours and your photo processing begins after you approve your proof. This gives you the added security that your photo project is going to turn out perfect! When you are ready to place your order you will find you have several shipping options from local pick up to four day shipping just depending on how fast you need your project.
