Canvas Press {giveaway}

How did I take this snapshot...


And, turn it into this piece of art?






I love the look of canvas wall art and have always wanted at least one for my home. But, the prices at my local photographer just seemed so out of reach, plus the turn-around time is pretty outrageous.

So, imagine how pleasantly surprised I was when I checked out Canvas Press and learned about their pricing, further, I received my order within two weeks of ordering...and that is to Canada through regular postal mail. I get a lot of packages from the US and let me tell you the mail service is usually pretty slow coming across the border. There is only one logical conclusion to this line of thinking, and that is that Canvas Press processed my order and had it on the way to me lightening fast.

My gallery wrapped canvas arrived sealed within a plastic protective bag, inside a sturdy cardboard shipping box. I had read on the website that the boxes are designed to protect your canvas in shipping, and I agree with that one hundred per cent.

If you have ever thought of taking those treasured photos and turning them into a canvas print...blown up, and enhanced...then Canvas Press is your answer. Canvas Press utilizes the finest sprays, wood frames, inks, printers and canvas materials available, and, their work resists fading for 100 years!

WOW!

Canvas Press cant take your digital files, paintings or even antique pictures and transform them into beautiful art which will last a lifetime. All this and from a small family run business is an awesome combination which always gives the customer the personal touch.
Canvas Press offers choices when looking to create that perfect compliment for your home or office.

Photos to Canvas

Wall Collages

Photo Prints

Ordering is a breeze, using Canvas Press' easy to navigate site. Steps are clearly outlined and your options are well defined.


When making my canvas masterpiece I started by selecting the canvas style. The choices are standard 3/4" thick, or gallery wrap - anywhere from 1 1/2" thick to 3" thick. The next step was to choose the size, you can choose anywhere from 8" x 10" to 36" x 48"! Select your choice of border, choices are image, mirror or colour border. Then in the next step you can show your creative side...choose your colour (black & white or sepia), if you would like text, and whether or not to touch-up your picture. And, finally, upload the picture you would like made into your canvas. Then I was able to crop the picture as I desired.

Choices are plentiful, it was easy to use and fun too! I loved that you could tweak your choices and your canvas takes on a completely different look.

My choice of picture for my canvas is of the beauty that surrounds me every day. Drive down the street from where I live and I can stare at that scenery every day, natural beauty abounds and I am now able to bring it right into my home to enjoy the whole year long. It is a focal point on my wall and a conversation piece. My wrapped canvas is the perfect size at 16 x 20.

Many of us have loads of pre-digital photographs that we would love to have made into a canvas print. Canvas Press offers to make a scan of your photo if you aren't able to. Simply mail them your old prints, negatives or slides.

Canvas Press puts their customers first, you can be assured that your finished product is exactly what you are looking for, since the customer is in control the whole process. Their quality is tops and definitely does not disappoint!

Jenners said...

Thanks for giving me a great gift idea for Mr. Jenners! He is a good photographer and I think turning one of his photos into a canvas print (or two) would be a wonderful gift for him .. and a meaningful piece of art for our home.
