    Default Anyone ever use Fabness.com for canvas prints?

    I have a few people that want a copy of my tiger eyes image from the other day (with a little modification for LSU). I found this online place called Fabness. With an online deal through SocialLiving, I can get canvas prints that come gallery wrapped and stretched for next to nothing. A 12x18 is $28 shipped and a 20x30 is $56 shipped.

    I am just wondering how good the quality of the print is.

    They even show a simulation of the print (granted this is a 60x40)

    I'm looking for reports on Canvas prints actually.

    This place CG proprints cgproprints.com is getting very good reviews and their regular prices are cheaper than Fabness's sale pricing.

    VERY curious to hear anything about quality though firsthand - so wherever u buy from please report back.

    Many thX!

    I did order a 20x30 and 12x18, so I will let you know. I did buy two more 12x18's and one more 20x30, but have not used them yet.

    What I don't understand, the image I uploaded was a 35Mb Tiff file (which I thought was huge). When I put it to the 60x40, it said image quality would be lost. How big does an image have to be for a huge canvas?

    I just watched a video from SLR Lounge that they made on on-line canvas prints comparison. He said CGProprints is the best value and quality, and it was't even close, even in the quality vs the professional grade printers. Their 20x30 is $1 more than what I paid for Fabness price through SocialLiving. Fabness normal price for 20x30 is $89.

    yup 35 megs is big but 60 inches by 40 inches...is 'huger' than the 35 megs.
    Just look at your file size. Image - Image size in photoshop.
    It will tell you the print size. Exceeding that size is likely the reason you got your warning.
