My Canvas Images Review & Giveaway

I love taking pictures. I'm no self-proclaimed photographer, but I do love to snap photos of my friends and loved ones, and even a few still shots of things found in nature every now and then. My husband, however, does not share my love of photos or of being photographed. From the day Balian was born, I have begged for us to have a professional family portrait session, and until recently, was turned down every time! Some are of the opinion that photos are just pieces of paper, and they can be a huge waste of money, but to me, they tell the story of our lives. I want to have tons of pictures available for future generations of Witts- so they can see how we lived and loved.

I am always in a constant search for interesting ways to display photos. During a recent networking event online, I came across My Canvas Images, and connected with Ann Tobler. My Canvas Images is based in NC, and they do something incredibly cool! MCI takes a photo and prints it on canvas, creating a brand new, beautiful work of art to be enjoyed for generations to come.

Ann very kindly offered to send me one of their small canvases (8x10), printed with a photo of my choice. I was absolutely thrilled! Firstly, because I do not own a canvas print, and I thought it would be so fun to have a new dimension gracing my walls. Secondly, I thought it would be a wonderful chance to have a family portrait made. Ann directed me to select one of my photos that I'd love to have printed onto canvas, and attach it to an e-mail and send it back to her. I combed through photos, and finally decided on one of my favorite sweet photos of myself, my husband and Balian. It was taken the afternoon of my sister-in-law's wedding in the front yard of our church.

April 2011

After I sent my photo to Ann by e-mail, she had it checked to make sure the resolution was of good enough quality for printing, which I appreciated. After the photo received an 'okay,' it was sent off to be worked on for printing. After just a day or so, I received an e-mail from the My Canvas Images proofing department, which sent me an image to approve before it went to print. I thought it looked great, so I gave the 'go ahead,' and it was sent off to be printed.

It only took just a day or two for my photo canvas to arrive on my doorstep. My Canvas Images sent me an e-mail as soon as it shipped from their shop, and it arrived the next day. I couldn't wait to see what the canvas looked like. The canvas was excellently packaged and protected while in transit, and had 'fragile' stickers on the box. I carefully unwrapped the canvas, and just smiled at how wonderfully beautiful it turned out! The image itself, printed on the canvas was so crisp and clear! I didn't see a single flaw, nor did it look blurred or stretched out from the wrapping. The canvas came with hardware to hang it, which was extremely easy to install... just a simple hanger, nailed right into the back of the canvas frame.

Here's what the canvas looks like hanging in my house...

 The photo on canvas actually wraps around the entire wooden frame that the canvas sits over.
