Helpful Hint: The resolution from most digital cameras works perfectly for our canvas product. If you're not sure about any of that, you can check the file size by right clicking on your image, and then clicking on "properties" where the size will be displayed. Compare that number to the recommended resolutions listed above. (Note: Cell phone images may not meet our minimum resolution requirements. Please upload the largest image possible to ensure the highest resolution.)

What frames are available?
Frames are available for most sizes. Frames are not available for 11x11, 16x16, or 24x36 sized canvas prints.
Will my photo colors appear slightly different?
Yes, they may appear slightly different. Keep in mind our high-quality commercial canvas printing process utilizes CMYK colors. Unlike commercial printers, household printers and monitors use RGB.
(See image above)
CanvasPeople will reproduce color from your submitted photograph file as closely as possible, but cannot exactly match color and density because of limitations in the printing process, monitor calibration and image resolution requirements. You most likely won't notice this kind of color shift in a color photograph. It is more likely to happen if you pick a very rich, vibrant color for a background or some other element of your layout.
Your photo will wrap around the sides!
Your photo will be wrapped around the sides of the canvas stretch bar. Make sure the main subject of your photo is within the inner red border (canvas front) as shown below.
Note: As you change the canvas size, be sure to check out the wrapping preview again as it will differ based on the size selected.
If something is cut off or wrapped around the sides that is important, you may want to edit your photo using our cropping/positioning tool or upload a different photo.
How We Handle Instagram Borders?
If your Instagram photo has a black, tan or white border, we will extend the border so it wraps around the sides of your canvas.
If you did not create a photo with a border, a 1/4" white border will show on the face of the canvas.
How long will it take to receive my canvas or gift card?
Orders are generally delivered in 7 - 10 business days. Production times may vary if provided photo does not meet resolution requirements. Please allow additional time if you enhance your photo with a Special Effect. Production times may be longer during holidays due to increased volume. To ensure your canvas arrives when you need it, order 10 - 12 business days early to account for shipping.
If you're looking for a canvas gift that you can give immediately, try our gift cards. They're a fun way to let your friends and family turn their treasured memories into canvas art.

Why don’t I see express shipping options at checkout?
