Creating memories with canvas prints

December 14, 2016

Canvas prints are a lovely way to display your photographs. A large print on a wall will bring back precious memories for years to come.

Photography has come a long way since the days of film. Now when we take a picture it is instantly displayed on a screen. There is no waiting for the film to reach the end of the roll so you can take it in and get it developed. Digital photography has many benefits. One of the disadvantages is that the photographs are stored on memory cards and computer hard drives. This is not as accessible as a print or a book full of photographs.

Fortunately the firms that once dealt with film now have a wide range of ways of dealing with digital photographs. The possibilities are endless. You can get your photographs put into a photobook, create cushions and mugs and even create canvas prints to go on the wall. Recently got in touch to see if I would like to put one of my prints onto canvas. As I have a hard drive full of photographs I was more than happy to get one where I could see it.

Creating memories with canvas prints is an  online store that specialise in creating canvas prints, photo books and photo gifts. They have a range of gifts from mugs and cushions to blankets, phone cases and mouse mats. You can even get your favourite photo made into a jigsaw. The canvas prints come in a range of sizes. The smallest is 20 x 20 cm and the largest is 80 x 60 cm with plenty of options in between. The prices are reasonable as well, the largest size is £32.

Ordering from

The only hard part about ordering a canvas from My Picture is choosing which picture to choose. I have so many photos it was difficult to choose just one. In the end I went for a photo taken at the Angel of the North with my husband and son. It was taken when we were hunting for Great North Snow Dogs. The Angel of the North is an iconic North East icon which fits in with the other photo canvas in my living room. That is a picture of the Millennium Bridge over the river Tyne. Once you have the perfect photo you just upload it to the site, choose any effects you want and pay.

A few days later my canvas arrived. The parcel was well wrapped in bubble wrap and came in one piece. The canvas is stretched over a wooden frame which can be easily hung from a picture hook. The photo quality on the canvas is excellent and even better the ink is guaranteed to be fade resistant for 75 years. This means I can enjoy my canvas without having to worry about it losing its vibrancy.

I am really pleased with my canvas and it now has pride of place in my living room over the mantelpiece. It looks fabulous and is very eye catching.

    awesome post as we use a lot of canvas prints to decorate our office in Canada. With canvas prints they’re really not as expensive as most people think. Especially buying the canvas print in Canada instead of US currency saves us a lot of money.

  3. I love going on holidays and then putting some of the memorable moments onto canvas so I can hang them on the wall. I actually have entire wall full of canvases. Is it weird?
