Review Summary:

SnapBox is doing something a little different than your average photo printing company. They've designed an easy to use email/web based system to get framed Canvas Prints sent straight from your phone to your door.

How does it work?

Simply email a photo to,then you can easily select and order a canvas prints right from your phone, computer or any web enabled device. It’s that easy, if you don’t have access to email easily on your phone, you can also go to their website and order a canvas print online.

The Looks

The snap box is framed with a smooth satin black finish; it has a ½ “gap around the canvas. The Canvas itself does not crop the image if your image size is set correctly. What does this mean? This means your picture remains perfectly in the middle. This is nice, because a lot of the times when you try to get a canvas made you’re cutting someone’s head off with wrap around. So instead of it wrapping the image around the edge of the canvas, they print black on the canvas around the edges. This gives the canvas a unique look with exceptionally clean lines. The quality of the print is flawless; they just look superb. Nice crisp edges making the photos look remarkably sharp and clear, even when up close. Color reproduction is also really good, although the print can look a little dark.

The Frame & Hardware

The frame is handmade 100% kiln-dried wood, it’s extremely light with an ultra-smooth surface and no grain whatsoever. The frames are fitted perfectly with no edge separation and are perfectly square. On the back of the frames are a saw tooth hanger, and two small rubber feet at the bottom. This is neat cause it gives you room for adjustment, and the rubber feet keep your frame straight.

The catch

Now there’s one fascinating thing about SnapBox, they sell a Framed Canvas of 11×14 and the actual canvas itself is 9×12. So keep this in mind when you’re thinking about placement. The frame is the actual size you’ll be ordering. I wouldn’t call this a negative as they are selling you the canvas already framed. This just gives you a better idea of placement if you’re doing multiple orders to do a wall collage.


We have 9 canvas prints in our home from various online printing companies. They can be expensive, and most of the time you have to get them framed yourself. For example, Walgreen’s sales a framed 11×14 for $49, while SnapBox is just $37 for a 10×13. Is 1 inch worth $12 more, I don’t think so.


With the ease of use, and quality of the prints that SnapBox is making I give them a 4 out of 5. The only reason they didn’t get a 5 out of 5 is because I wish they had bigger sizes to choose from. Hopefully they’ll add larger frames in the future! I highly recommend them, and my wife and I will continue to use them in the future!
