Get your photos off your computer and on your wall with Canvas Factory (Giveaway CAN/US)

My contributor Jessica is a wonderful photographer so when the opportunity to review a print from the Canvas Factory came up I knew she was the perfect person to do it.


I love art. My favourite is art that has some kind of meaning to me. I can’t bring myself to head to the nearest big box store and buy art from the bin of “art that is the same as everyone else”. Don’t get me wrong, I’m tempted sometimes. They have pretty pictures, neat colours, fun patterns, but every time I get there I remember the folders of photos I have just sitting there on my computer, doing exactly nothing for me. I took them for a reason, after all. They were beautiful and meaningful to me then. Using your own photos for art is so much easier (and *cough* cheaper) than it used to be. I remember during my photography career peak, getting a canvas print was expensive. You paid by the inch, and getting it stretched and mounted was another cost altogether. Now, there are great companies like The Canvas Factory that offer a great product at a reasonable price that can fill up all those empty walls.

Getting my print was a simple process (though, in my case, a bit of a comedy of errors… none of which actually related to The Canvas Factory). It took me longer than I wanted to change the orientation of the canvas and get it the way I wanted it (I have young kids and survive on coffee so that might have just been me), but once I figured it out, it was all smooth sailing from there. When the canvas arrived, I was pleasantly surprised. My past life as a photographer has made me less than pleased with many of the online photo services available (photo books I’m looking at you), so I didn’t have high hopes. While the sheen is a bit glossy for my taste, the quality is really good and I am happy to have this piece hanging  in my house.

Now the big question is… where to hang it?

The Canvas Factory has a really good selection of canvas sizes in square, rectangle and panoramic and you can even order split photo canvas prints which is something I really want to do – it’s just a matter of deciding which picture this would be perfect for. And you can easily do photo collages as well. Check out the cool “modish” shapes you can use to really get creative with your collages. And if you happen to be a fan of acrylic prints or metal prints they have those too!
