I’ve been taking an interest in photography and trying to improve my own with my admittedly ancient (in technological years!) and not top-of-the-line camera. So I was extremely happy to have the opportunity to review these custom canvas prints from Canvas HQ.

They sent me a coupon code to order an 11″x 14″ canvas print. The process on their website could not have been easier. You can choose a photo you have saved on Facebook or upload a new one. They have¬† a large number of size and framing options available. The site allows you to crop your photo to fit your chosen canvas and allows you to enhance or change your picture. I think the selected color feature, which pulls one brightly colored aspect of the image and turns the rest black and white (such as a child’s bright red dress), would be fun to try another time. They will also email a proof to you, so you can see and approve exactly what you’re getting before they send it.

I decided to go with one of my cardinal photographs. That way the girls wouldn’t get jealous if I chose a picture of just one of them. Plus I need more artwork in my bedroom, which happens to be decorated in red and black- perfect for his showy red plumage.

I was very pleased with the results! You can see here the canvas texture, which added depth to the photo without losing any of the sharpness or detail.

I chose the wraparound canvas, which uses part of your photo to self-frame. I always think this adds a cool dimensional feel to artwork.

I did feel the top of the photo was cropped a little too closely. I probably should have gone with a complimenting color wrap on the sides of the canvas in this instance, which would have left the bird fully centered.

These canvases also come with a handy self-hanging wire,  no tools needed!

I truly couldn’t be happier with the quality of my print. I already have plans to turn some of my favorite photos of the girls into lasting works of art!
