About a month ago we were very kindly offered the chance to review a photo on canvas from HelloCanvas. What an opportunity, who doesn't like a canvas photo print? A chance to have a beautiful photograph become art work.
I found the whole process very simple. The hardest part was choosing what photo to get printed. I trawled through hundreds of photos, ideally I wanted one with the three of us in, but we have surprisingly few photos of the three of us, and the ones I do have just weren't quite right. I wanted it to be a recent photo as well. I finally chose one I thought would look good blown up, that would be bright and eye catching. All I had to do then was let the HelloCanvas team have a copy of the photo and tell them if I had any special requirements (cropping or if I wanted it in colour, sepia or black and white). It was easy with this photo, I didn't want it cropped and decided it'd look best in colour. After that, it was all over to HelloCanvas and I have to say I was very pleased with the time-scale it didn't take them long to get our canvas printed and sent out to us, I'm sure it was within a week - it was a few weeks ago, but I'm sure it was no more than that.
I was impressed with the packaging, the canvas was encased in a strong cardboard box with a decent amount of bubble wrap, it arrived in excellent condition. Getting our photo canvas out of the box was so exciting and I have to say I was impressed again! To be honest, the quality of the print surpassed my expectations, it's high quality and the image is continued around the edges which is a fantastic effect.
We weren't able to get our canvas on our wall straight away due to our Centreparcs visit, but we got it up there shortly after and it's been a focal point in our living room ever since. What do you think?
We think it fits in with the room perfectly!
Now, I know we were sent this canvas to review at no cost, but I can honestly say I recommend HelloCanvas. The customer service was excellent, the delivery quick and the end result fantastic. The prices are great, starting at £13 and if you're not happy, they offer a money back guarantee! I've used other photo printing companies in the past and not been impressed. I know we'll want to order more canvas prints in the future and I know HelloCanvas will be the one I think of going to first.
You can follow HelloCanvas on twitter and on facebook - a good way to keep up-to-date with deals!
