A product review and a giveaway- Reflections On Canvas!

Last week, I received a gorgeous canvas from the wonderful people at Reflections On Canvas for a product review.




Reflections On Canvas offers hand embellished giclee on canvas from customers' original photographs. With a group of artists specializing in photography, digital graphic artistry and the traditional medium of paint on canvas, their talented team collaborated to transform your digital photo and preserve your special moment into a unique and original artwork.


Reflections On Canvas will make a perfect gift for yourself or others! Think about creating a canvas to cherish loved ones, heroes, family vacation, the home you grew up on or simply to memorialize the family pet. For gifts, think wedding gift, birthday present, retirement gift, anniversary gift, father's day gift, mother's day gift, the list is endless! 


I am sure all of us have many memories to cherish, preserve and reflect upon so Reflections On Canvas decided to offer all Mix And Chic readers a 20% off on all your purchases. Just enter promo code: CHICSUMMER20 at the "notes to artist" section when you place your order. Enjoy your 20% off discounts starting today through the end of August!


Are you interested to see which photo I picked for this review? One of our wedding pictures, of course! Check this out!


This is the photo I sent in.



What do you think? Don't you think they did a fabulous job on our wedding canvas? Let's take a closer look at their work.


The result is gorgeous and I love the vibrancy of the color enhancement.


Take a closer look at the beautiful brush strokes.


Hardware is included with the canvas for easy hanging.

The canvas is stretched all the way to the sides so the canvas looks good in every angle.

Before the canvas get made, I had a hard time narrowing them down to our most favorite photo with the amount of wedding pictures we had. Mike, (the friendly representative from Reflections On Canvas who contacted me earlier) suggested that I send him a few of my favorite pictures so they can show me the digital proof proposals before we decided on our most favorite.

One of the digital proofs they sent me:


I sent them 3 of my favorite pictures on a late Friday night and received all three digital proofs the next day in the afternoon! Needless to say, I am absolutely impressed with their efficiency and great customer service!


I love their professionalism as well. They found a crack in the stretcher bar and wasn't happy with the end result of my first canvas, so they reprinted, restretched again and applied the finishing touches for my second canvas. I really appreciate it when businesses took the extra effort to make things right for their customers.


In short, I think the team at Reflections On Canvas delivered a beautiful and quality product with exceptional customer service. They answer all my questions promptly and the final result definitely exceeded my expectations. I can't wait to hang this gorgeous canvas in my master bedroom!


*I received this product to review for free but the views and opinions expressed are entirely my own.


Now, let's get to the best part. The fabulous giveaway! The generous people at Reflections On Canvas decided to offer one of Mix And Chic readers a $100 credit to be used on any of their canvases.

  19. What a great giveaway Jessie!! Your canvas is gorgeous!! I love the pretty brushstrokes. And you looked so beautiful on your wedding day! If I won I would get the 8x10.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I *think* if I won I'd get a canvas made of a picture of a cabin that my husband's family has in Arizona. It's just this dinky little place in the middle of no where but he grew up going there and he and his mom and sisters and brother have tons of great memories there.

  22. This is so great! I totally Lola you?

  23. Hi Jessie! Thanks for directing me into the right location! I absolutely love this idea. Your wedding portrait turned out beautifully (of course, they had beautiful subjects to work with). But I love the finished look! I particularly love how the faces in the finished portrait still actually look like the people (oftentimes, paintings tend to distort the true characters.

    If I win this contest, I will get the 11x14 or 16x20 gallery wrap of my family. We've only had one real photo session with all four of us included so I would memorialize our fun day with this! (Plus you can tell from my sunroom that I love the idea of canvasing cool photos of the family!)

    1. I "liked you on facebook and left a comment there
    2. I've left a comment here
    3. I "liked" you on pinterest and left a comment (and repinned)
    4. And I answered the bonus question about what I love about this style!

    Looking forward to the chance to win! Thanks again!

  27. What an amazing giveaway, Jessie! Your canvas print looks fantastic. Love the colors! I think I'd get an 11X14 as I'd probably do one of our wedding pictures and would put it in our master bedroom, so I wouldn't want anything too big. I would love to own one of these!! thanks.
