When HelloCanvas got in touch and asked if I would like to review a canvas from them I was thrilled! It took a while to decide on a picture to use, as I take so many and have some lovely ones I'd like enlarged, but I selected one from a recent family holiday.
Ordering is really simple and prices start from as low as £13 with free shipping too. You can upload your image from your computer or send a photo, CD, DVD or USB via post. You select the size that you want, whether you would like it portrait or landscape and choose if you would like the sides white or not. There are options to add effects and choose your colour before heading to the checkout to pay and enter your details.
As I selected an Instagram picture my order was created as 24"x 24" for a better fit - perfect.
I received an email later the same day to confirm that my order was being dispatched and I was also provided with a tracking number so I could find out whereabouts is was with ease.
The canvas arrived 2 days later, wrapped well in bubble wrap and paper to prevent damage in transit.
What we thought...
My initial thoughts were that it was so much bigger and better than I had even hoped for. The quality was superb and the colours came across wonderfully. The back of the canvas was tidy and secure and there is card between the canvas and wooden frame for extra strength and support.
I then had the challenge of hanging it but it only required 1 nail tapped into the wall to keep it in place - simple enough for me with very little
We chose to position it above the 3 seater sofa in the lounge, a central location, so that any visitors would be able to see it straight away. Every time I see it I'm reminded of what a lovely break we had earlier this year. It was taken in the evening as the light was just fading away. The Mini Mes were enjoying a final trip to the beach before we headed home the following morning. I can still hear their giggles as they played in the sea!
If I were to get another canvas, which I will do in the near future, I would definitely return to HelloCanvas. The service they provide and the products are of a very high standard.
The lovely people over at HelloCanvas have offered to provide one lucky person with a gift certificate to receive a 20" x 28"canvas print of their own!
