Easy Canvas Prints

When you have as cute of kids as I do, you might as well plaster your house with pictures of them!

I love taking pictures… and when I have a memory to cherish I love displaying it in a great way.  I had been eyeing numerous different canvas prints for a while, but couldn’t quite commit.

 

So let’s just say I was thrilled when Easy Canvas Prints contacted me about reviewing one of their Photo Canvases.   We had literally just wrapped up Easter and I was in love with a certain photo of the children.  I hopped on the website and found it SO easy to use, and I had my canvas ordered in less than 5 minutes.

And the canvas arrived in about 4 days. (I am not sure what they guarantee on shipping, but I was shocked how fast it got to me!)
It was carefully wrapped in plastic and bubble-wrap and carefully boxed.  The Canvas was in great condition and the quality is excellent.

Oh my cuteness!  Don’t you just want them to stay that huggable forever???

Makes me smile in the morning.

And I am sure in 15 years when those cuddly faces are all grown up, it might just make me cry a bit… remembering all of their huggable cuteness!

This is so you can see the sides of the wrapped canvas.  You can choose to have the photo wrap around or get a “mirror image”.  With my picture, Helen’s face was right on the edge of the picture, so I had no “room” to wrap it around.  I was so thankful they offered the mirror effect.

Now, just know that a 16x20 canvas sounds big, but think how big your walls are above your couch, dresser, etc.  Unless you have things to go with it to form a grouping, a 16x20 is going to look really awkward on it’s own.   See this Awesome blog post from photographer Amy Ro about always going BIG with photo prints for walls unless you are doing a wall collage.

I think a 16x20 flanked by 11x14 or 8x10s would look nice, or a grouping  of four  8x10s o11x14s would look really cool.  I hope to get a second 16x20 to put up with that one to complete the wall space more.

The one challenge with canvases, while they are beautiful and a great addition to our homes, you can’t just switch them out when the kids take a better picture… so you want to choose an image you love, and can love for years to come.

Some thoughts on ordering a photo canvas--

  • Consider timeless images
    • Infants, capturing childhood, weddings
  • Family Shots
  • Close ups of faces and group together 
  • Black and whites—simply timeless!  I would decorate my whole house with Black and whites if I could
  • Landscapes or landmarks of places you have been

Ask yourself the questions---

  • Would you send this shot out as a card?
  • Does this image portray the memory you are trying to capture?
  • Could you see this hanging in your house in 10 years?
