I'll just get straight to the point...
All canvas is not created equally.
Trust me. I've gotten canvas prints from a lot of different places over the years.
And though I've gotten some decent canvases, I've also gotten some pretty bad ones, too.
But the point of this article isn't to tell you about all the clunkers out there, it's to share with you a recent experience I had with CanvasHQ, the best canvas-printing company out there today.
The image above shows my most recent order of canvases from CanvasHQ.
To say that I was blown away by the quality of these prints would be an understatement.
In fact, I was so impressed that I zoomed right over to CanvasHQ's website and left a pretty glowing testimonial:
CanvasHQ... I want to share with you that my canvas prints arrived yesterday. First let me say, I have a number of very beautiful canvas prints in my home already. You need to inform your clients, or those asking if all canvas prints are created equally, that they are NOT. CanvasHQ... your craftsmanship, material used, and simply how the canvas looks, is far superior to any other print I have in my home. And that is saying A LOT! I'm impressed. And I don't get excited too often, but you deserve this feedback. Thank you for taking my family's special moments and creating such amazing prints. I will be heavily recommending CanvasHQ!
What Makes a High-Quality Canvas?
Let me break this down a little further...
What makes a great canvas print is the type of canvas that's used.
CanvasHQ uses artisan-quality canvases paired with UV-resistant and waterproof inks.
That means that my canvases will have bright, vivid colors for years to come.
Not only that, but a great canvas print needs a solid frame such that the print remains taut and doesn't sag as the years go by.
CanvasHQ uses kiln-dried fir to make their frames and stretcher bars, so again, you can rest assured that your canvas will retain its impeccable look for a long, long time.
More than that, though, a great canvas print is the result of having various options for customizing the look.
I'm talking about choosing a finish, like matte, gloss, or semi-gloss.
I'm also talking about choosing how deep the canvas frame is, which determines the print's visual weight on the wall.
And you guessed it - CanvasHQ gives you plenty of options here too, from 3/4-inches to 2-inches.
Also of Importance - The Mounting Hardware
When you get a canvas print, it's not just the canvas and the frame that matters...
You also need to pay attention to the mounting hardware.
I know, I know, it's not a very sexy subject...
But trust me, no matter how beautiful the canvas print is, if the hardware is off, you can have a nightmare experience.
Not with CanvasHQ, though:
CanvasHQ... this is part two of my enthusiastic opinion of your canvas prints. Three days ago, I received my 13 canvas prints from you. As I pointed out in my original feedback, I have a lot of very nice canvas prints in my home. Here is the one thing I have noticed when ordering multiple prints in the past: the mounting hardware is NEVER aligned and spaced the same from print to print. This makes hanging multiple prints a mathematical nightmare!
So, I have to be honest with you, hanging 13 prints and going diagonally up my stairs... based on previous experiences (with some very reputable canvas shops) I was expecting this to be an all day roll-up-your-sleeves mathematical nightmare. Was it? Not at all.
CanvasHQ, literally EVERY mounting cleat was the exact same distance! You are the ONLY company that has supplied Gorilla Hooks (or for that matter, wall-side mounting hardware period). As I pointed out in my first message to you, if any one of your customers ever asks if all canvas prints are created equally? I'll say it again... not even close.
CanvasHQ... you are the company every other canvas shop should aspire to be like. And those thinking about canvas prints, do yourself a favor... if you want a quality print, your wall art and precious memories deserve the best. CanvasHQ is the company you should try out.
Thanks again CanvasHQ. I'm grateful for high standards. My entire family loves how the stairway turned out:
It's About Customer Service, Too
Although we're all familiar with the phrase, "The customer is always right," if you ask me, there's way too many companies that seem to have forgotten what that means.
Not CanvasHQ, though...
It's a family-owned business that's committed to taking care of each and every customer and building long-term relationships.
That means that when you call with a question, you talk to a real human being. If you email them, they respond quickly. If you use their website's chat feature, one of their fine employees will answer you.
Better still, if something goes awry, you don't have to worry.
CanvasHQ gives you a 30-day guarantee, during which time you can have your print remade or you can request a full refund. You even get to keep the original canvas!
And every canvas they make is guaranteed for life against bubbling, fading, and cracking. Now that's a what I call a guarantee!
So, to wrap this up, not only does CanvasHQ give you tons of options for getting your canvases just how you like, but they also create top-notch products that will last a lifetime - and are guaranteed as such.
As I mentioned earlier, I don't tend to gush over products that often. But every once in awhile, something comes along that truly knocks my socks off.
My canvases from CanvasHQ surely did that, and if you order a canvas from them, your socks will be knocked off too!
