    I wanted to get some input as to where you order your gallery canvas wraps from. I've had good experiences with Millers and one bad experience with the folks at cutekidcanvas.com (no idea who their actual printer is, but the wrap was a POS, excuse my French) and I wanted to hear some more suggestions.
    I know there's a place that exclusively prints canvas wraps but I can't find their name, I think I saw their ad in 'Digital Photographer' or 'Professional Photographer', I don't remember.

    What experiences have you had, who can you recommend and who would you think I should stay away from?

    I have this image of a little bridesmaid I want on a fairly large wrap so I really need to be sure I'm getting a good result..

    Simply Canvas is an awesome company. We use them for all of our wraps... Oh, and they're exclusive to professionals, which is nice. :eek:)

    Umm... Publicly posting price lists is almost always a direct violation of vendor agreements. It's usually a much better idea to drop someone a private message. :wink:

    Well, I don't know either, but I'm guessing there's a reason why they don't publicly display their prices.

    To answer the first question. be sure to check out Pixel2Canvas...they offer beautiful work...each canvas comes finished, sealed across the back, all hanging material included and overall top quality work.

    As for not posting prices, for professional accounts, this is so the average customer cannot see what the pros are paying...some people just see the price of the finished print, be it a canvas or a photo print, and they do not understand all the work and overhead that goes into the finished piece. I have actually had someone quote me a price that they felt was 'fair' for my work, as they said they 'knew' what it cost to print...never mind the hours I put into the piece long before it would head off to the printer.

    Many companies do post that it is agaisnt their policy for prices to be listed publicly in any online or printed matter, beyond what they personally give approval for.
