We ordered a 16″ X 20″ canvas print of the same image from every company on our review list. We compared the the quality of the canvas, frame, image, in addition to the total cost (canvas + shipping) and the time it took from placing our order to getting our canvas. We also factored the reviews companies had on Google Reviews and weighted that score by number of reviews companies had on Google Reviews (third party reviews that were included in Google Ratings were also considered)
We conducted a blind test of the canvases and asked respondents to give the canvases a score between 1 and 5, 5 being the best, of the following criteria:
Skin Tone – Redness
Clarity – Crispness
Frame quality – Splintering wood, weight
Wrap quality – Tightness on corners, loose canvas on the back, loose string
Canvas quality – Quality of the material, graininess of canvas
The scores were averaged together to calculate the quality score.
Based on the starting price range for an 8″ x 8′ canvas.
$10 and under – 5 stars
$20 under – 4 stars
$30 and under – 3 stars
>$50 – 2 stars
