Canvas Design Review

Through this blog I occasionally get things sent to me to review and I really enjoy doing it as I love getting home to find unexpected parcels waiting for me! I try to write an honest review of any products that come my way or indeed, any gear that I actually buy! I was recently contacted by a lady from Canvas Design asking if I would like to do a review of one of their canvases, all I had to do was send them a photo that I would like turned into a canvas. I decided on my favourite photo which is of a 80lb Amazon Redtail Catfish caught at Gillhams in 2012.

As soon as the print was ready I received a text telling me when the canvas would be delivered and the following day I had another message to let me know when it would arrive during an hour long window - fantastic service. The canvas was really well packaged and from me sending the photo off to receiving it was within 48 hours. I must admit I was a little apprehensive unwrapping it but it was brilliant and I am over the moon with it. The original photo is below with a picture of the canvas underneath and you can see how good it is.

The canvas
The 100% cotton canvas is of the highest quality and comes hand stretched over a 3.8cm pine frame with a free hanging kit supplied. My wall was looking very bare but I've now hung it over my bed (well I didn't want to have to look at my ugly mug all night!) and I think it looks fantastic. In fact I'm actually thinking about getting a couple more done and paying for them!

Pride of place over my bed
Looking at their website (which is really easy to use), they can do a wide range of sizes and you can have square, landscape or portrait canvases. If you can't see the size you want they can make you a custom canvas right up to 72". They also do three different types, Canvas Lite (with an 18mm pine frame) with prices starting from £5.99, Canvas Classic which start at £7.99 and Floating Canvas Prints which look amazing but are a little more expensive, starting at £36. You can also have a photo montage done and they even do waterproof canvases! All shipping is free too!

I think they would make an ideal present for anyone and gift vouchers are available on the site and you can even get a canvas sent to someone if you wanted to.

I have to say again how impressed I am with this company and the service they provide, these canvases will brighten up any wall. Have a look at their websites (links below) and if you're still not tempted there's even a discount code (BLOG15) which will get you an extra 15% off.

We have always wanted to get attractive canvas prints in affordable rates. Very nice idea for making an amazing 'DIY Photo on Canvas' the canvas you have made, it's really looking attractive.
