If you live in the U.K. – this is for you
Now, here is something I always wanted to do myself (actually I planned to offer a service like this, but not photo on canvas but photo printing and framing) Photo in canvas. You probably know how cool photos on canvas can look and if it is your shot, even better! And I don’t just mean for your home, but also office space and other kinds of interiors too.
I remember, a few years ago, I ordered one of my photos to be printed on canvas (it was an image of a white feather, blue sky was in the background and there was one drop of water on it, looked really cool). So, I got that printed on canvas, bought the wooden frame and figured: “I can stretch it myself. Should be easy.”
How wrong was I! Stretching the canvas on the wooden frame required so much muscular strength that even my hubby and I had a hard time getting it done. I ended up with blisters on my fingers, we nearly destroyed the photo in the process and in the end it did not look the way it looks in stores and galleries.
Why am I saying this? Well, this was years ago. Now, there are on-line services which will allow you to:
- upload your image,
- sit back and wait for your canvas prints to be delivered to your doorstep.
That’s how easy it gets these days.
As you know, I rarely do reviews of other web sites or businesses. It really needs to something cool, or something I, personally, am passionate about. Otherwise – I’m out.
Now, for the Photo in Canvas web site. I liked it. Not just because the service they offer is exactly what I needed (and still need today) but also because they made it simple and took the effort to offer some additional features in addition to their offer.
So, not only that you won’t have to suffer a sore muscle fever after stretching the canvas on frame yourself, also, you won’t have to be a Photoshop guru in order to prepare your image for printing. As a matter of fact you won’t need know to glitch about Photoshop or any other image editing software to prepare your image for printing. They will do all this for you. After uploading your photo, Photo on Canvas staff will make sure it meets the technical requirements. They will even remove the red-eye effect and reduce the blemishes for you.
- Delivery in the UK is free (on all orders)
- You will get a phone support (and email support, of course)
- The online tool they have will allow you to crop and move the image before you submit it for print
They will also do the 3 way split (triptych) and 4 way split canvases.
So, if you live in the UK, just head over to http://www.photoincanvas.co.uk/ upload your photo, decide on the dimensions, crop and move it as you see fit and voila, your photo on canvas will be delivered to your door.
