Professional Printing Companies
PREFERRED PRINTING PARTNERS
You can choose any printing company you desire, but we trust these companies to provide the highest quality and the lowest pricing possible. On average, the price for a 20″ x 36″ canvas enlargement will cost about $70 to $80, including shipping. We found Shutterfly and Snapfish will charge about $30 to $40 more yet, Shutterfly does not offer custom print sizes or 3-D thumbnail proofing, and Snapfish offers some pre-formatted image sizes and 3-D proofing but again, the cost is more than the printers below. Aerial images print slightly wider (more panoramic) than standard print sizes, so being able to create custom print sizes is very important. The following sizes crop full-frame with our aerial images: 8″ x 14″ | 13″ x 24″ | 18″ x 32″ | 20″ x 36″
Canvas on Demand provides low prices, great quality, custom print sizes, plus they provide real-time 3-D proofing of your image. They also provide multiple canvas wrapping options such as image wrap, mirror image wrap, color edges, and wall-mounting hardware is included in the price. Canvas On Demand has been in business since 2002, boasts over 17,000 customer testimonials, and appears to be located in North Carolina. The cost for an 8″ x 14″ canvas on 1.5″ wood frame is about $43.00, shipping $17.00, estimated delivery in about 15-17 days. 3/4″ wood frames are about $10 less.
Canvas Champs provides low prices, great quality, custom print sizes, real-time 3-D thumbnail proofing, and hanging hardware is included. Canvas Champ has over 10,000 Google and shopper reviews with 89% of them being very positive. It appears their images are printed in India, but that does not affect the quality at all. Longer delivery times is the trade-off for being able to buy canvas prints for 12% to 45% less than the competition. Even some “late delivery reviewers” still gave this company 5 stars. The cost for an 8″ x 14″ canvas on 1.5″ wood frame is about $24.00, shipping $8.00, and an estimated delivery in 20 to 30 days. The biggest savings will be on the smaller canvas print sizes, as larger 13″ x 24″ prints were about $14.00 less than the competition.
Easy Canvas Prints offers low prices, great quality, real-time thumbnail proofing, and they provide a full-range of custom print sizes too. Easy Canvas Prints also provides a very user-friendly website, and they have nearly 50,000 combined reviews with a 96% positive rating. The company appears to be located in Austin, Texas, which helps with quicker deliveries. The cost for an 8″ x 14″ canvas on 1.5″ frame is about $43.00, shipping $17.00, and an estimated delivery in about 15-17 days. 3/4″ wood frames are about $10 less, and they will charge either $1.49 or $4.95 to install wall-mounting hardware.
ViVYX Printing was recommended to us by a seasoned California photographer and although they don’t have a lot of online reviews when compared to some other companies, they still have a 94% positive rating which is awesome! ViVYX Printing provides very low pricing, great quality, and custom print sizes too. The company appears to be located in Arizona and promises 2-3 day processing times and 4-7 day delivery. The cost for an 8″ x 14″ canvas on 1.5″ wood frame is about $32.00, shipping $12.00, and a total estimated delivery time of 7-10 days. ViVYX Printing also appears to provide the fastest turn-around times of all of our preferred printing companies.
CGI Pro Prints provides great quality, low pricing, and they show a sample cropped thumbnail image too. Unfortunately, custom print sizes are not available so you’re not able to print full-frame aerial prints. However, CGI Pro Prints offers very competitive pricing, so they are worth looking in to. Canvas On Demand is also the sister company to CGI Pro Prints so if you need custom print sizes, try Canvas On Demand.
Simple Canvas Prints promises museum-quality canvas printing, while providing low pricing and great quality. But they do not offer custom print sizes to speak of. Like Snapfish, they offer a few pre-formatted custom print sizes, but only in larger formats. That is, our aerial images print full-frame at 8″ x 14″ but Simple Canvas only offered a pre-formatted custom size of 8″ x 12.” The cost for an 8″ x 12″ canvas on 1.5″ wood frame is about $27.00, and they offer several shipping methods that affect turn-around times ranging from free shipping to expedited shipping.
We’re confident that you will be happy when using any of these printing companies and if you do have any pre-printing questions at all, please never hesitate to contact us.
