This post is sponsored by U.S. Family Guide & canvasonsale.com I am not paid for this post, but I did receive a FREE 8x12 canvas print in exchange for my honest opinion. I am not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
Metal print I received from another company & my canvas I received from canvasonsale.com
I have recently become obsessed with canvas prints. Maybe it's because we will be purchasing our first home soon & I NEED pretty things to hang on the wall. I was recently sent an email promo for the "FREE Canvas For America Campaign".

Naturally, I signed up ASAP. An email was sent stating that we(the bloggers) would have to pay for shipping. No biggie, others were VERY angry. After I received the email with my code in it, I spent about 2 hrs trying to find the perfect quote I wanted to use for the canvas, since I knew exactly where I wanted to place it in our new home.
I ordered my canvas on 12, Dec. on 17, Dec I received an email saying it was "en route". I figured that it probably wouldn't get here before the Holidays, and that was fine because it was for myself and not to be a gift for anyone else.
I ordered an 8x12 stretched canvas with 1.5 inch thick wood frame. I also opted to have the black easel back, as well the hanger set for the canvas.
I was SO excited when the canvas arrived on 22, Dec. I ran straight into my bedroom and opened it up and the excitement turned into anger(make sure you read all the way to the end of the post).

I know you are probably asking "Why?", and now I will explain. I was shipped not one but two photo canvases that were of a bride & groom(I don't know these people). These photos were gorgeous and I'm sure the person they were intended to go to would have loved them.
I tried called their customer support number and would get to the automated voice recording telling me that all of their customer service agents were busy, it did this 3 times and then would hang up. I stayed on the phone trying to connect with a real human for over 30 mins with no luck...
Stay with me here...this is where it gets good! I decided to reach out to them on facebook, can't hurt right?
I tell them who I am & that I am doing a review for U.S. Family Guide & then express why I am so upset. The next day I received a reply with first a very sincere apology for the mixup, and then I was given instructions to look on the back of the canvas for a certain number that started with the letter "D", & sure enough...both did, so I snapped a quick picture of the back of both canvases and sent them to whoever I was speaking with.

They then asked for my order #, which I gave them. They again apologized and said that the issue would be resolved and was told to destroy the canvases I was sent by mistake so a 3rd party couldn't get ahold of them. After telling them that I would do just that, I said "Thank You for your help" and we went our separate ways.
on 27, Dec. I received another email saying my canvas was en route. It was shipped UPS Next Day Air & arrived(which was AWESOME of them and NOT cheap for them to do) while I was out of town, but a family member was able to get it for me and place it on my sofa until I returned home.

We arrived home from our long drive at 1 am on 31, Dec(this morning) & as soon as got our girls put to bed, I opened up my package and I have to say this...it was VERY well wrapped in a TON of bubble wrap.
Their Canvas prints are VERY sturdy, and I am 100% in love with my print & it was SO worth the wait.
