Why CanvasPop?

When CanvasPop approached me about doing this promotion together, I first looked into the company before even contacting them back. I then spoke with them to see if this would be a good fit. One of the many things that struck me about CanvasPop is their production process. Images are tweaked and processed for maximum color and image quality by a real-life technician before output. I mentioned the relative low-res output of camera phones — no longer really a problem on the iPhone any more unless you’re using Instagram. Turns out CanvasPop has a super-secret algorithm that they use to get the best possible quality from any image.

There are a lot of options for enlarging and printing images. The guys from CanvasPop take as much pride in their output as we do in our photography. CanvasPop produces a great way to share and display your art.

I think it’s a good fit for this contest. I know y’all will create some great looking art. CanvasPop provides a great way to display it.
