I had a friend talk to me about a canvas she’d bought online and show me how it looked. It was on special at 1/2 price and seemed like a really cheap deal compared to what I was offering.
When I looked at it I was shocked at the poor quality. The canvas fabric itself was thin, there was no coating, with the ink already flaking off and scratches apparent. Where the canvas had been folded around the edges, cracking was evident.
The colour tones were all wrong and the image not very clear even though the original photo was crisp and clear. The frame was ok but looked hastily put together.
A previous customer also had a few comments to say upon comparing a canvas print I’d done with some she’d had made in Auckland: “Hi Neal…print looks awesome! And definitely better quality than the other printer i’ve used…yours is distinctly sharper & clearer…interesting too that you didn’t have to do anything, and there was that much diff…”
At Photo Enhancements, quality is paramount with the canvas, coating, inks and custom made frames used. It’s a pity more people don’t realise that all prints are not the same. The famous saying from Gucci, “Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten” is certainly true.
