Re: Printing, Frame, Framing, Canvas, Mounting, St

I recently had a photo printed on canvas 20x30 by ezprints (www.ezprints.com). The quality of the print was excellent, but I had definite problems with quality control. The canvas was creased at reception. They willingly reprinted the canvas upon reception of the defective original. The second print delivered was someone elses...thus we had to go for print three. Needless to say I made no money on this endeavor and ended up selling at cost. Hopefully this is experience was not the norm since I did like the end result.

Nice results + "not-so-good service" = Not the way to do business.

Thanks for the information on this one.

Re: Printing, Frame, Framing, Canvas, Mounting, St

I am a newbie here and have liked what I have seen so far.

I would like to use this opportunity to tell you of my canvas printing company, which is based in Western Australia. Although, I supply prints all over Australia.
As we are a small family company, we pride ourselves in our quality products at reasonable prices.
The company was started in 2006 after emigrating from the UK, however, we have many years experience in printing on to canvas, as we had a successful company in the UK. We are still building the website and have just started adding local photographers to the site. If you are interested in selling your images as canvas prints within Australia, don't hesitate to contact me.

Please feel free to check out my site at:

Re: Printing, Frame, Framing, Canvas, Mounting, St

I will take this opportunoty to note the very fovorable results I have gotten at www.mpix.com with their gallery wrap products. I've had photos and "paintings" done and they turn out great.

I highly recommend their services -- any of them.
