We are very fortunate to have a friendly fan base on Facebook. Every day, we enjoy reading comments like, “You guys did amazing work. Thank you so much.” or “Great job, excellent customer service and I couldn’t be happier!”
We don’t read these comments solely for customer feedback; we are actually interested in knowing our customers on a first name bases. After all, we’re people too! No, we don’t have machines doing all the work in our warehouse, but we have a team of craftsman who individually hand stretch each canvas. Every comment is unique because every canvas print is one of a kind. We feel amazing when customers take time to share their enthusiasm and satisfaction. It reminds us why we’re in the photo-to-canvas printing business. We are honored to be part of your cherished memories.
We are proud to acknowledge our customer, Jessica Magon McWhorter, who has made the switch from another photo-to-canvas printing company to CanvasLifestyle. Her Facebook comment was so sweet that we couldn’t resist reaching out to thank her. We asked Jessica to send us her story and her reply was very considerate. Enjoy reading Jessica’s story (we sure did):
A couple of weeks ago I purchased some Vouchers on Amazon.com’s Local Deals for your company. I mistakenly thought y’all were out of Dallas, TX because that’s where y’all were listed under. (Ooops! My bad.) Anyhow, I uploaded six of my photos to have transferred to canvas. They came in today and WOW! I love them! I had a 16×20 made last summer by another company and, although I am happy with it and have received many complements, there are a few finishing details I wasn’t exactly ecstatic about. I think that’s why the quality of y’alls transfers stood out to me. The overall finished product is amazing. Thank you!
I posted a brief thanks on your FB wall today and was asked to share my story and photos for your upcoming blog. I am a little stunned by the request because I’m your normal girl next door who just loves the world around her. Here is a ‘lil snapshot’ of myself.
Picture taking has always been a little bit of a hobby. I was always taking pictures of friends and family and of the scenery on our trips. But after my divorce(s) I lost interest. I had to throw away so many photos of people who were no longer wanted in, nor wanted to be in, my life as well as photos of places that brought back painful memories. (It’s ok to grab a tissue if you need to. I will wait). But my love of the world around me stayed and so I kept taking photos of my new surroundings in my new life, just not as many.
I became a delivery driver for FedEx Ground in 2008 and transferred to their Home Delivery division after making yet another move. I love my job! I have the best seat in the house when it comes to scenic views. Of course, on days when it is hailing, ground-to-cloud lighting, or 115 degrees (in the shade) for three weeks straight, I wonder about my sanity and why I have chosen this career. But this is where I get my chance to take some really cool shots.
I might pass by a pond, an old car, a pasture day in and day out and then, one day, the sun is in just the right spot, or the water is so calm it looks like glass, and, well I HAVE to stop. I have even turned around on a number of occasions when my eye has spied some magnificent sight as I am making my way to my next delivery. And this is where I stress that I work for Home Delivery and NOT Express. (Chuckling to myself) Express has certain time restraints on when a package must be delivered and their drivers are hourly, so stopping for photos would be frowned upon. I am a contracted driver whose job to get the boxes safely to their owners by the end of the day, with rarely any other time restraints, so stopping occasionally isn’t a break in ethical boundaries.
I started sharing some of my shots with my mom, sister and a few close friends. They kept giving me encouragement to keep taking my pictures. One of my friends in particular was the real inspiration to put my all into each shot. I started posting a few here and there on FaceBook. When I would see some of my friends at gatherings, they would tell me how much they loved looking at my photos, a lot of whom never even “liked” them on my wall. So I have kept it up. If I can brighten someone’s day by one simple photo, I will have accomplished something.
My BFF and mother have been the encouragement to have some of my photos printed. That’s where y’all come in. Canvas transfers are not always the cheapest route, but they have the best finished look in my opinion. As such is the case, I have been scouring sites like Groupon, Bradsdeals.com and even Amazon for deals so as to find a good printer. I am glad I have found y’all. I will be placing more orders in the future.
I have attached the six photos I just had transferred. They were all shot on my route and ALL shot with my 3G Droid cell phone. I really should consider investing in a real camera one day. Two of them were taken on private property. The others were taken from the highway, back roads, and even a wrong turn onto a dead end street that the GPS said was a thru street.
One short story about the dog at the fence: I deliver to this particular house quite regularly and never noticed anything out of the ordinary. Then one day, I saw something move out of the corner of my eye. I turned to my right and there was this eyeball staring at me thru the fence. It scared the mess out of me! When the sun is at just the right angle, you can’t see his body because the yellow glow blends with his yellow coat. He just silently sits and is ever staring. It has become a norm for me and not as unnerving as the first realization that he was there. The children of the home told me that he knows when the school bus is coming down the street and he waits for them on one side of the yard, staring at the bus, then quickly moves to the gate as they exit the bus, waiting to say “hello!” to them. Priceless!
Well for someone who didn’t know exactly what to say, I have said more than enough. I hope this is what y’all were looking for. Thank you all again for the wonderful job and the interest in my photos. You made my day!
