I thought I'd post an update on the 20x60 pano I ordered from CG Pro Prints.
The canvas was shipped UPS Ground from Colorado to Massachusetts. Took about a week:
Note the crunched corner at the top left. I was really worried about that, but the ends of the box were longer than the canvas, so it was fairly well protected. But there is little protection along the long side of the box. Luckily there was no damage there.
It turns out that corner of the canvas seems to have some minor damage. But since this is for my office, and it was so cheap (about $70 with shipping), I decided I didn't want to deal with the hassle of sending it back, with no guarantee the next canvas wouldn't be damaged in shipping even worse. Not good enough for a client, though.
Overall the color is very nice. The canvas is about an inch deep. Because of the crop I had to work with, I decided to have them make the edges black rather than wrap the image. I would have lost parts of the photo I wanted to show. The back is nice and solid, and includes two hanging hinges.
It remains to be seen how well the canvas holds up over time, but I'm happy with it and I'd use CG Pro Prints again. It would be nice if their boxes provided better protection all the way around, but this was a large, awkward size, and I'm probably lucky UPS didn't totally trash it.
