ColorInc Gallery Wrap Canvas Giveaway & Coupon

*Edited: Congrats to #76 Claude and #8 LHadgis were the two winners! Each will receive an 11×14 Gallery Wrap CanvasRaise your hand if you’re a fan of gallery wrapped canvas! You too? It is seriously one of my favorite ways to see my photos on my walls. There’s just something special about seeing your photos printed on a canvas and wrapped around a canvas frame! It’s an impressive treatment and has more impact than a print in a frame! It looks like ART!

So imagine my excitement when ColorIncProLabs asked to become a TidyMom sponsor and offered me the chance to review their Gallery Wrapped Canvas! Let’s just say…..they didn’t have to twist my arm!

Gallery Wrap Canvas

I actually had 2 photos that I was dying to get on canvas! One of each of our daughters.
I needed a little bit of editing help getting one of my pictures ready for print!

My good friend Amanda of Photography Haven did a wonderful job editing this photo of Sunshine I took a few months ago. The color was a little off, and her pink shirt, against the red brick mixed with her hair color was just giving me a hard time. Amanda is fantastic with editing….so I cashed in my friendship chip for her help ?
Amanda can help you too, if you want to learn how to edit your photos in PhotoShop Elements! Click here to check out her PSE online workshops that she’s offering in late May and June for the crazy price of just $25!! (I’ll be taking the intermediate class and the textures class)
Thanks Amanda!!

Before and After {edit}

After Amanda worked her magic, I was ready to turn it over to ColorIncProLabs for my canvas!

ColorIncProLabs works a little different than other online photo sites I have used in the past. They have an order processing program called ColorInc ROES. The first time you order from them, you install this program onto your computer. It was quick and easy to install. It took me a little bit to figure out how it worked and how to navigate the program , but once I got the hang of it, everything went pretty quickly.

My biggest problem was with my photo. When you print a gallery wrap, part of your picture is going to be wrapped around the sides, so you don’t want to crop in so close that you are wrapping part of their face or something weird – so I had to keep editing my photo until I had the crop right. This is what was so nice about the ROES program! It helps you estimate which part of your image will be wrapped around the sides. It shows you the edges of you image that will be on the sides of your canvas- a feature that other sites don’t have. The last gallery wrap I ordered did not show me this when I placed my order – fortunately that photo worked fine, but in the case of this picture, I would have been really disappointed had I not been able to see this ahead of time and been able to make the changes I needed.

After importing your images into ROES, you choose the size and type of prints you want. This ROES system is great for professional photographers because you can process multiple orders for multiple clients and package the prints in “boutique” packaging. However, this is fantastic for us amateurs as well.

ColorInc’s turnaround was very quick. I had my canvases within just a few days of placing my order. The quality is amazing. The colors are true, the canvas is wrapped tight and there is a wire across the back for hanging the print. I am SOOO please and excited with how they turned out!

corners & back

A feature that I absolutely love is that the bottom corners have rubber feet to keep the mount in place once you hang it.

    We are taking our kids and grandkids to the beach on vacation in about a month. So just take a wild guess on what picture I would use if I were to win this canvas. That's right a family pic. Thanks for the chance.
