Have you ever been sold on the idea of the best Christmas gift ever and found out that you can’t get it until after Christmas?
Well, this just happened to a buddy of mine who was tempted by a Black Friday special that ended up in his email.
The special involved a canvas print at a hugely discounted price. Since he has several loved ones that really enjoy photographic prints, he thought it would be the ideal Christmas gift.
But when he called to inquire about the discount canvases, he was told that there's no delivery until after Christmas. Yikes! So much for a holiday gift...
That’s when I told him about Canvas HQ, my favorite canvas printing company.
As you may or may not know, CanvasHQ is where I’ve been getting my prints from for quite some time. They are fast, reliable, and the quality is unparalleled.
And that gave me the idea of this article...
As tempting as some of the Black Friday specials are, I want to know that my canvas is getting shipped to loved ones before Christmas. After all, that's the whole point of Christmas shopping, right?
The great thing about a canvas print is that it's a timeless piece of art, particularly if the canvas is high-grade and the inks and framing materials that are used are also of exceptional quality.
That's where CanvasHQ comes in!
I've bought a lot of canvases from a lot of different companies over the years, and I can tell you from personal experience that no one matches the quality of CanvasHQ prints.
What makes these prints stand head and shoulders above the rest is the materials used to create them.
It starts with archival-grade canvas that's made from a poly-cotton blend designed specifically for fine art reproduction.
The inks used on these prints are water-resistant, scuff resistant, and UV-resistant as well, so you're sure that the print will have long-lasting clarity, sharpness, and colorfastness.
The frames are impeccably made as well. The kiln-dried stretcher bars are hand-stretched by CanvasHQ's craftspeople to ensure the the canvas has a perfectly flat, square frame to hold its shape for generations to come.
I have several dozen prints from CanvasHQ (the image above shows just a few of them), and until you see one of these things in person, it's truly hard to appreciate how great they look.
Even after many, many unboxings on my part, there's still that moment when I see my prints for the first time that I'm taken aback by just how well put together they are.
Beyond that, though, CanvasHQ has a crazy short turnaround time. They're in Arkansas and I'm in the Los Angeles area, and I often get my prints in 2-3 days after placing the order. There's no worries about these suckers getting to your loved ones before Christmas!
On a personal note, the CanvasHQ people are truly the most genuine, caring people you'll ever meet.
Their team is committed to customer service and making each customer feel like the only customer.
If you have a question, a real live human will answer your email or phone call. If you have a problem with your order, they work with you to resolve it as quickly as possible.
It's that dedication to the customer that keeps me coming back to CanvasHQ over and over again - even more so than the amazing quality of their work!
These prints are gorgeous, well-made, durable, shipped quickly and backed by a 100-percent guarantee.
If that doesn't say "ideal Christmas gift," I don't know what does!
