So this is the original photo that I chose, quite a feat to get these two guys to sit still and smile (well, our older son at least):picture on canvas. The colors are as vibrant as the original, it was just hard for me to capture that on our camera but you can see it in the next photo. The canvas has true canvas texture so it looks different at different lighting angles so that is something to keep in mind when choosing your photo and location of your print. An 8 x 10" sounds big, compared to a regular photo, but once we put it up in the wall in our house we realized how big our living room walls are! If we order another one we would get an even bigger one so a good word of advice, measure the area you are planning to hang the canvas before you order it. Their website has a preview of the size next to an average couch, I just didn't pay enough attention to it during the process. During the ordering process their website analyzes your photo and tells you on a scale of poor, fair and good how appropriate your image is so that was very helpful.
Below is a photo of how they mounted the canvas, it is on solid wood and comes with the hanging hardware attached already so you can just put it right up on the wall. The final piece is lightweight so it is easy to move around the house. The wood goes all the way to where they cut the canvas opening on the back so you can see it is a solid mounting. The canvas was nice and tight on the wood, no bubbles, not loose at all.
Easy Canvas Prints website with lots of great tips about how to select your image and care for the print. I am such a point and click person I didn't look at that ahead of time but I would recommend it, especially if you are choosing a larger canvas, just to make sure you make a wise choice about your image.
We were very happy with the whole process and love our final print of the photo of our sons. It is something that we plan to have up in our house always and is a special way to display their picture.
