canvas photo giveaway

The kind folks over at Easy Canvas Prints allowed me to try out one of their canvas prints.  I chose a black and white, one of my favorites of Skyler waiting for her ice cream cone at the ice cream counter last summer in Bar Harbor.  The company gifted me with one 16x 20 print of my choice and it arrived last week.  I temporarily put it on this photo shelf but once I order a matching sized one of Reed (waiting for the right photo), I am going to hang them side by side on my wall. 

I think it looks great.  The image is printed on a thick canvas material and wrapped around a wooden frame.  There are two widths and I chose the thicker one, a 1.5 inch wrap.  It might be a tad on the dark side, but I'm quite happy with the quality otherwise.  I love my serious-faced ice cream girl.
It is quite easy to order a canvas print.  You just upload a photo of your choice and follow the prompts choosing size and frame width.

Easy Canvas Prints has offered one free 8 x 10 to one of you!  Do you have a favorite photo that you'd like to make into a canvas print?  I think the 8 x 10 size would look really cool in a smaller space, like in your favorite nook of your home. 

This time winning is easy:  just leave a comment here before Friday at 6:00 pm and I'll choose one random winner.  Thanks!

I actually really like the "dark" quality to the photo... reminds me of a "film" picture from the 70's or 80's. Great photo!

Such a darling picture of Skyler.


I'd love to win this one and have a print done of Izzy and Tucker.

ann said...

I already have 2 up in my house from our European trip. They are awesome but I lost some of the print on the edges since the photo wraps around the edges of the frame. Make sense?

Charlotte said...

I would love to win! I have a blank wall in the living room in need of something, I have a picture of popham beach I'd love to blow up.

Ooo, I want one. Even if I don't win we'll be getting a couple. Thanks for sharing.

oooh...Skyler looks fab and I can't wait to see which photo you end up using for Reed-o! I'm no photographer, but we do have some decent shots buried in all those digital files. I'd love to have to choose one for a free canvas print!

Nancy said...

That last comment was me--I was signed in to my work google account (oops!).

3 years of marriage, and we still don't have any wedding pictures on display. I'd love to print one on canvas!

I'm with 'Lee'. My first thought was to put a picture of our beautiful family dog Murphy who we lost last year, on a canvas. Count me in!

Joanne said...

Skyler is so precious - nice photo! These prints are so special. I would love to do a series of close-ups of flowers. Thanks for putting up the offer - another fun giveaway!
