    I've used printwild many times - their work is amazing!
    Of course I talk to myself. Sometimes I need expert advice.

    Used CanvasIt quite a few times for canvasses for the home and as gifts.

    They run decent specials at times and find their work to be of good quality.

    Never waited longer than a week for shipments to arrive. Even over Christmas last year.
    Be the person you needed when you were younger.

    Ask yourself if you want them to decide what the photos should like like or you. Personally I'd process them myself and send them a high quality jpg.

    In that case 20mb is plenty. Printers are going to print at 300DPI if it's photos as opposed to canvas - that means you need 2398px by 1795px. A full quality jpg should come in at under 5mb and even an uncompressed tiff should come in well under that threshold.
