Treasured Memories On Canvas

This post is sponsored by Canvas Printers Online 

There are two things I love when it comes to capturing my photographic memories and they are photobooks and photos on canvas. There’s something extra special about seeing a moment in time beautifully presented on a canvas and hanging, pride of place, in your home. 

I was so glad that Sarah from Canvas Printers Online contacted me to do this review because I had the perfect photograph for a canvas print. This is a photo of Mr. G, Elliott and I at Elliott’s first birthday party. When I realised that I had not put any photos from his first birthday up anywhere in the house, I felt a bit guilty. We’d just recently celebrated his second birthday, where had the time gone! Oh and by the way, that ‘stuff’ on the side of my face is actually face paint, face painting is for adults too!
It was quite easy to use the Canvas Printers Online website to create my 40cm x 50cm canvas print, with prompts at every step. Although I did strike an error when it came to progressing through check out, I suspect because I was using a special code provided to me as I was gifted the canvas,  I was promptly assisted and before I knew it, my canvas was on its way to me via post. I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived within the 5-10 working days that was suggested on the website. 
I was quick to open the box to see my canvas inside. I was impressed by the secure packaging, the canvas was well wrapped with bubble wrap and the canvas was undamaged. I’ve purchased canvas prints from other businesses before and this print matched my expectations. The canvas was well wrapped and taught, the print and canvas quality is very good and really did the professional photograph justice, the canvas simply bursts with colour and clarity. I am also glad I purchased the Gallery Wrap because it really brings the photo to life (the sides of the frame are a continuation of the image). 
I chose to put it on the wall in our lounge room as you can see in this photograph. There was a good sized secure hook on the back so I could hang it straight away. The other thing that I really liked was that the back of the frame was lined with velvet so it did not rub on the wall. 
Mothers Day is coming up, wouldn’t a canvas print be the perfect gift?  Canvases are available for delivery Australia wide and come in a variety of sizes and styles which you can see here.  You can also follow Canvas Printers Online on Facebook where they have competitions, specials and photography tips. 
If you were to turn a photograph into a canvas, which photograph would it be?

    How brilliant – am now inspired to go rummaging through my photos to see what would look good on the wall!

    Probably one from our photoshoot when she was six months old. We got some great family shots that day. This reminds me I need to print out a heap of photos for the wall above her play area.

    I have always wanted to do this! Yes, we need a decent family portrait for a canvas but I think the first thing I’d put together into a book would be my wish-come-true first trip to New York in 2012. #teamIBOT

    This is cool, and you’ve just reminded me that I won a canvas late last year and still haven’t got a pic on it yet! Must do that ASAP! Love this photo AND your new header 🙂

    We’ve got some gorgeous canvas prints and I’ve been meaning to get a few more done now that we have a house (and lots of walls… lol). My absolute fave is one we have of my son just after he was born, taken by our doula. It’s black and white and just the most gorgeous thing. These days, I’d love to turn one of our family photos into a canvas as we never seem to get around to printing them…

    What a gorgeous photo! I am a bit photo-obsessed, we have a montage of 16 of our wedding photos block mounted on our lounge wall and a row of block mounted prints of the kids down the hall way. If I had to choose one photo to print on canvas right now tho it would probably be the one in my blog header that I took at Christmas as it’s one of my all-time faves.

    I love canvas prints. I would definitely choose one of my kids.
