500px and CanvasPop Join Forces

Published by Diana Tula · November 7th 2012

Market is now better than ever! We’ve partnered with Ottawa's CanvasPop to offer you more printing options at preferred prices, higher commission for photographers, lowest price for printing your own photos, and new shipping rate for our fellow Canadians. Did you know that both 500px and CanvasPop are Canadian companies? 500px is based in Toronto and CanvasPop in Ottawa. Only five hours of driving apart we sure do think alike, a premium user experience and highest quality is built into both of our DNAs.

What are the new sizes?
There are three more sizes added to the canvas prints, making a total of five sizes: 24x36, 30x30, 20x40, 12x48, and 18x48 inches. Now photographers can set the size and crop in Store settings, selecting the exact crop of their photo pixel-to-pixel.

Are you selling prints at 500px?
We have negotiated a better rate, which means that with reduced shipping costs you will get a higher commission rate. Now your commission from each print increased to 46% and averages in profit to $63 per print.

Were you planning to print your own photos?
We worked to bring you the lowest price anywhere for the top quality canvas prints, guaranteed. If you enable your photos for sale, now you can buy your own prints without commission for just $109 plus $8.99 shipping.

Are you living in Canada?
We got great news for you! The shipping rate is no longer $38.99, the new rate is $8.99 per print without duties on delivery charge. Working with CanvasPop we’ve decreased the shipping cost by 70%. Hence, we matched our U.S. shipping rate.

Why join forces with CanvasPop?
"We take our photographers needs seriously," says Oleg Gutsol, CEO, 500px. "We only partner with brands that share our vision and commitment to excellence. With CanvasPop, we’ve found a company whose attention to detail, values and customer service matches the passion we have for photography."

Visit Market today to find the next great print for your home or office. There are photos for any taste, at great quality and large sizes. Finding that perfect photograph is easy with the offered browsing options. You can browse through photos which you’ve already added to Favorites, check out suggested Featured Sets, see what others are buying in Just Sold or use Search with keywords and places that you have in mind.

Is assign size mandatory? I don't understand if I must choose a printing size or let the thing this way.
thank you

Hi Eric,

Assign size is optional. If it's not selected by you the size is then automatically chosen based on photo's parameters.

If HD download becomes optional then I'll definitely join. And then I'll be waiting for photographic paper prints, labs in Europe and conquering the world! :-)

This is great news! I'll use CanvasPop to print my entire B/W series:

btw, mention to Oleg that we would very much appreciate it if he heard our moaning about the Dislike feature.

Thanks, I already did submit a comment in that thread.
One suggestion, some of the other Photo sites allow each User to allow or disallow Critiques.
Wouldn't that option solve the problem for us here?

Hi Mark, Thanks :)

The "moaning about the Dislike feature" has been heard by Oleg and everyone at 500px since the start, and we've been and still are working on different solutions and ideas to work around it and with it. We'll keep everyone posted once changes are implemented via blog and other social media. For now there is much discussion and feedback on our Support page, which Alex forwards to our developers and the rest of the team. If you'd like you can join the dialogue http://support.500px.com/.

I could not find the Size and Crop settings in my store. Is this feature available now? If so, where does one set these settings?

Hi Kelly,
You can upload high res photos at http://500px.com/settings/store. If they don't match one of the print proportions exactly, there will be a Assign Size button available. You can click that and choose your Canvas size, along with a preview of the area that will be cropped. We will add a feature to change the size and crop of existing photos as well.

Please give the option to disable the HD download, that is the only reason I am not selling my photos.

Hi David,

This is coming. We were really excited to roll out CanvasPop, but this option is on the to-do list as well. Thanks!

I totally agree with HD download it should be optional.
