    I got a couple Livingsocial deals for online printing from Fabness. A 20x30 (normally $200) was only $39 and a 12x18 (normally $90) for $12.


    Anyone use it? How is the print quality?

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

    I don't see that they provide any information about the type(s) or grade of canvas they use.

    On that basis alone I would not use them.

    I saw some other information in their Photo Resolution Guide section that would also make me pass on using their service.

    Canvas has a heavy texture that substantially reduces the need for sharpness and image quality.

    I have to agree with Keith on this one. Probably not a good idea, but it is pretty cheap.

    The canvas is very heavy and textured for sure. I ordered one last year. I actually liked it quite a bit. Wood frame and the canvas seems very durable. I guess it depends what you want printed, but it is a slightly "artsy" look
