Hello Canvas review

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!
