I love taking photos, especially on holiday, but I’ve never thought they were good enough to enlarge and become a piece of art. Until now.
Remember our trip to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne last summer and my arty photo of the upturned herring boats? I was quite proud of that, despite it being taken with my trusty click and point compact, and happily posted it on my blog. I assumed it would remain there, languishing online, until I maybe got round to printing a small 6″ x 4″ photograph of it sometime in the future.
Then I received an offer from CanvasPop. Would I like to try out their canvas prints? They would be happy to supply a 16″ x 20″ canvas of my choice for me to review.
I knew instantly that my herring boats shot would be worth a try so emailed the file to CanvasPop. They made some helpful suggestions – a 16″ x 24″ would suit the image better and, as I dithered with the choice of wrap (the edge bit!) – black, white or photo – they came up with a great solution. So as not to lose some of the image, they would create a ‘mirror’ image on the side, without losing any of the front picture.
In less than two weeks, all the way from the United States, my canvas print has arrived and it has far exceeded my expectations. It looks like a very upmarket, stylish artwork.

The quality of the canvas is excellent because the company use the highest quality materials which are designed to last over 100 years without fading. To make life easier, they provide free digital proofs so you know what you’re getting and, when it does arrive, it is ready to hang – they even provide a hook and nail.
CanvasPop are committed to excellent customer service so if you need help or inspiration, there is someone there to guide you through the myriad of choices so you can turn even Instagram shots into works of art.
