Canvas Press Makes Mother's Day Memories Last

I'm very particular about my home decor. In fact, I rarely take on a review for decor because of how picky I am.When it comes to wall art, I am more of a photo kind of gal. I love my family photos and am currently in the process of redesigning my coffee table to incorporate black and white photos onto it, decoupage style.

I have this space on my wall that I've been trying to fill for a very long time now, and just haven't found been able to find the right piece for it. When we were contacted by this great US based company called Canvas Press and asked to do a review of their products, I was a little hesitant, but as soon as I got to their site, I jumped at the opportunity.

CanvasPress.com offers high quality photo canvasses created from your favorite picture, in any size you need to decorate your home with your own personal memories. You simply capture your special moment, upload it to Canvas Press, and then create your masterpiece. It arrives professionally packed, with a wooden frame, high quality canvas, and a print that is just stunning. 

Both Marissa and I were able to review our own personal product. I chose a landscape, with the shadows of my children on Clearwater Beach, and she chose a close up portrait of her gorgeous children. When the products arrived I was truly taken aback by the beauty of the prints. The canvas is a very high quality, and the photo image looks so rich, that several people have asked me if mine was a painting. Marissa's canvas was so amazing that no one believed that it wasn't a professional portrait.

Pictures do not do this product justice, as the true beauty is so much more stunning in person. We were worried that the pictures might pixelate on the canvas, but to our delight, they were crisp, sharp, and vibrant. Marissa was most impressed with the quality of the canvas work. The backing and edges were clean and seamless--which can't be said for other canvas products she has bought in department stores and other similar retail outlets. The best part-there is the fabulous "Made In The U.S.A." label on the back. This is a fantastic product, it is a quality product, and it is made right here in the U.S.--does it get any better than that?


We had some trouble when attempting to order the canvases at first. We both placed our orders on the "old" Canvas Press website. We had a couple of minor issues, but once we contacted customer service, they walked us right through it. It was at this time that we were informed that the site has been undergoing some construction to help eliminate some of these issues. Since our order, the new website seems to be much more user friendly. In fact, from the poking around I've done, it's improvements are very noticeable. I do recommend using the "Need more control cropping your image" link, as that platform is the easiest to use and edit your picture prior to purchasing it, and much less frustrating than the main project page.


According to the representative I worked with, Canvas Press is trying to integrate the best of both sites as they develop it further to eliminate any of the problems we may have experienced. Either way, the minor quirks really amounted to distant memories as soon as we unwrapped our personalized photo canvas. I can't express in words how amazing these canvases look, they are truly beautiful.

Whether you are looking for a conversation piece in your living room, or the special ability to freeze a moment in time, no matter what your photo is Canvas Press allows for you to express your style they way you want.

Aside from purchasing a canvas for your own personal enjoyment, you can also make a lasting memory a great gift for Mother's Day, or any birthday, or holiday.  Every Mother's Day, we take a multi-generation picture. Think of how much Mom will love getting a portrait canvas so that she can remember it forever, and how it can continue to be loved by future generations. Maybe you could use a few brownie points with your mother in law; a gorgeous canvas of her and her child would definitely warm her heart and make you her favorite daughter in law! Don't forget Grandma's either, with the choice of using whichever photo you like--the possibilities are endless! You could even make a canvas of a picture of your child's artwork.
