To support RTP’s mission, MyPix2Canvas has created a special discount code and will donate to RTP 10% of the proceeds from customers who use the code to purchase canvas photo prints. The MyPix2Canvas discount code (RTP2011) provides a 20% discount on canvas photo prints and is valid now through January 31, 2012. MyPix2Canvas customers can apply the code during the checkout step in the online ordering process.
In addition, visitors to the RTP booth (259) at PhotoPlus can enroll in a raffle to win a coupon code to order a free 16x20 inch canvas photo print from MyPix2Canvas.

“The support from MyPix2Canvas is a great fit for our mission because canvas photo prints enable our students to showcase their photographic images and take pride in the art that they have created,” said Susan Schaffer, vice president, Rehabilitation Through Photography.
“We’re honored to be working with Rehabilitation Through Photography,” said Damon Rando, president, MyPix2Canvas. “We believe the artistic expression an individual can achieve with the tools of photography is a powerful emotional experience that can be enjoyed not only by the photographer but also by the audience viewing the printed photograph.”
MyPix2Canvas provides museum-quality canvas photo prints from customer photos via an easy-to-use website. To create these prints, visitors simply upload a digital picture and follow the guided process. The production team uses high-quality materials and a professional workflow to produce a custom gallery-wrapped canvas print from each customer photo.
