I was recently offered the opportunity to review a personalised canvas print from the lovely people over at Hello Canvas.
Of course, I jumped at the chance....and straight away I knew exactly which photo I wanted to use!
Funnily enough, a few days beforehand my Mum had been looking through some family photos on Facebook and had pointed a photo of myself, my sister, and my two nieces Amelie & Lottie-Marie - taken at my cousins wedding vow renewal last summer.
She said she loved the photo and really wanted to have a canvas print made of it.
I immediately made a mental note of this as I thought it would be a great idea for a Mothers Day gift!
So when I received the e-mail from Hello Canvas, I remembered this conversation and e-mailed the photo to them.
The photo was taken on a digital camera - it was just a quick snapshot, nothing professional at all! - so I wasn't sure how good the quality would be.
All I had to do was upload the picture and send it to Hello Canvas....a few days later a very large package arrived! I knew straight away what it must be!
The canvas was VERY well packaged - it would be nigh on impossible for any damage to have been done in transit! - and the printing turnaround time and delivery was VERY fast, I was very impressed!
I opened the canvas and was honestly just blown away with the quality of the print!
It looks absolutely amazing - the clarity is fantastic, the quality is astounding, and it even comes ready to hang so there is no faffing around at all!
As I'm keeping the canvas as a mothers day surprise, I didn't want it laying around where my mum might see it - lucky the box it arrived in was envelope-style which meant it was really to put back into the bubble wrap and back into the box for safe, sealed storage.
Hello Canvas also offer special effects services on their prints, and can remove red-eye and other inconveniences.
You can even send in photos by post for printing if you don't want to bother scanning in your desired print!
I can't wait to see my Mums face when she opens her canvas on Mothers Day, and I will DEFINITELY be using Hello Canvas again - I am sure once Bean arrives we will be wanting some canvas prints done and I can say with 100% honesty that I wouldn't even think about using any other company!
