Canvas Press Review & Giveaway - Holiday Gift Guide

Canvas Press takes a photo and blows it up and prints it on canvas.  It's very cool.  They use only the best canvas, inks, sprays and beautifully built wooden frames.  Their canvas's can resist fading up to 100 years.  I think that is amazing! I have a ton of old photographs and they really fade a lot over time.

I haven't had a family picture taken since my kids were still little, they weren't even school age yet.  So I asked my sister to come over and use my digital camera to take a picture of us.  I know they are almost grown now and I wanted to make sure I had something before they moved out.

The ordering process at Canvas Press is very easy.  You upload your photograph, decide the size you want and you're done, unless you want some special things like change it to black and white or make a collage.   I knew I was going to love it, so imagine my surprise when I received a phone call the next day.

The rep on the phone was very nice and courteous and explained that with the photo I had sent, when they blew it up, it got distorted.  Since this was to be a treasured heirloom, I was grateful she took the time to let me know and gave me time to take another photo and send it in.

Again, I was contacted by customer service.  This time by email and she explained that the photo would enlarge beautifully, but my husbands head would be wrapped around the side of the canvas when they put it on the frame.  She knew I probably wouldn't want that and suggested a black border.  I can't tell you enough how happy I am with the customer service of this company.  They strive for excellence and they go the distance to make sure you will be happy with their product.  You can tell they take pride in their work.

This isn't a good photograph to give this beautiful canvas justice, the flash kept going off and the angle is wrong.  It is by no means a professional photograph, but something we put together a midst our busy schedules.  However, I LOVE it and it is hung proudly in my living room.  If you don't have a photograph you'd like to have made into canvas, but love the idea of a canvas, they do have stock photos you can select.

I highly recommend Canvas Press - I'm planning on getting my children's senior pictures done in canvas next - and I can't praise them highly enough! This would make a beautiful, thoughtful gift for anyone, or to yourself, this holiday season!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
