I'm a total picture addict. I probably max out the memory on my phone about twice a week with pictures and videos haha. I even have individual folders for every month of Indiana's life and her 7-8 month alone has over 800 pictures already... . I love getting my favourite ones printed and put up and I truly think a house into a home until it's full of pictures and things on the wall.

So when The Canvas Prints gave me the opportunity to review a canvas for them I literally jumped at the chance! The online company is based in Bolton and they aim to 'provide quality canvas prints at low prices'. What I thought was brilliant was how easy it was to order my print. There are three options to choose from: single canvas, photo splits (one image across multiple prints) and then wall displays. 

I went for the single canvas option with a solid colour wrap. There are a lot more options for choosing your picture than other sites I've seen. You can do the usual upload from your computer which is my favourite as that's where all of mine are, but you can also upload from Facebook, Instagram or Google+! This is brilliant as most people use social media a lot these days, and I do find most of mine end up on Instagram haha.


There are so many size options to choose from, as well as different colour affects (these are not charged extra which is an added bonus!). All the time you make changes to your order the price is clearly updated so you know just how much it's going to cost. The only hard part of ordering was deciding which of my million pictures to use haha!

I admit I was a bit sceptical about how the great the quality of the canvas would be. I had never heard of the company before and I wasn't sure how good the picture would be once stretched. However I really had nothing to worry about. The canvas is absolutely gorgeous and I'm so happy with it.

It arrived well packaged with a clear 'fragile' label, as well as extra bubble wrap inside to make sure it wasn't damaged. The canvas itself was also wrapped in two layers for protection - one of bubble wrap and the other a clear shrink wrap. I think this added detail is brilliant as there's nothing worse than ordering something online for it to arrive broken!



The canvas itself it amazing quality. The picture looks amazing and has not been distorted at all with the stretching. The colours and bold and bright and it really stands out on the wall. The pink wrap around the edge goes perfectly with the colours in the picture and really finishes it off. The quality of finish on the backing is also brilliant. It is neatly secured down with added tape to cover it all. A hanging hook is also already attached so I coul put it up straight away!

Overall I am extremely happy with my canvas, and it now has pride of place on the wall in my living room. Prices for a single canvas start from £18 which I think is excellent value considering the quality (and the fact you can edit it for no extra cost!). 


*I was sent this canvas free of charge for the purpose of the review, however all opinions are honest and my own*
