Canvas Opinion

It often surprises people to learn that I have none of my own photos on my wall home. The nearest I have is two wonderful paintings based on my images by Steffen Imhof and a great piece by the talented Ian Cook aka PopBangColour created in his unique style from a photo of mine.

The truth is, although I find it hard to pick one to put on display on the wall, I am hugely critical of my own work. Even when I have picked a selection of images I like, the longer I look at them, the more I can find fault in them. The more I find fault in them the more it irritates me. Even if it’s just a small thing in the background that isn’t quite right, then once I have spotted it, then that will be all I can see in the photo.

So when the offer arose of having one of my images put on to canvas and with the recent acquisition of a new house meaning more walls to decorate, I was hardly going to refuse. Having photos printed to canvas has become very popular in recent years and it is easy to see why. It is a great way to display images and they have a smart modern feel that everyone seems to like.

Canvas Design is a family run company with 10 years of experience in printing and framing. They offer a range of canvas sizes from six inches all the way up to a huge 72 inches and starting from just £5.99. A choice of options and free services such as image enhancement, red eye removal and free delivery, underline Canvas Designs value for money. The website is easy to use and service is pain free. In fact the hardest thing you’ll need to do is, like me, choosing the photo you want printed. In fact, I think it took longer for me to chose the image than it did to have it printed and delivered.

I had sent my image off on Sunday evening and by Wednesday morning my huge 40” by 26” canvas had been delivered. To say I’m pleased with it is an understatement. It looks amazing. The quality is great, printed on 100% cotton and hand stretched on a 38mm pine frame, I couldn’t have asked for more. I’m really looking forward hanging it up in my new home and hopefully others will appreciate it as much as me.

With great service and a quality product, I would definitely recommend Canvas Design to all my friends and family. What’s more, they are offering you an extra 15% off all orders with the discount code BLOG15 So go and check out their websites now at http://www.canvasdesign.co.uk/ & http://www.canvasdezign.co.uk/
