Mother’s Day Gift Idea: Canvas Prints @CanvasPop #win #discountcode

Every year I order one to two Canvas Prints, depending on how cooperative my kids are being. I usually prefer the candid shots I get of them, when they are busy playing or thinking. Although I have a photo in mind for my next Canvas Print, where I had them sitting together to get a shot for Easter. They are in their pajamas and being goofy. It was just something I wanted to capture so I could send it to their father, who was not with us at the time. And I fell in love with the casualness of it, a peek at their love and attitude, so I am positive I am going to print it on canvas.

Why Canvas? Well, I do love art, especially images of people. I wonder what it’s like to be them, what they are thinking. And my favorite people happen to be my boys! Good canvas prints don’t fade and if you get them stretched, you don’t have to worry about frames.

Canvas Prints used to be “out of reach”. But now it’s easy to find locations in stores and online that can print them for affordable prices. Not all online canvas stores are created equal. Most of them do a good job stretching the canvas, but I also like them being ready to hang with the right equipment and good frames, ones that aren’t flimsy or ready to put a splinter in my finger.

Where do I suggest? Well, right now CanvasPop has a deal for 35% off with coupon code MOMBUZZ35. Code expires June 15, 2015.

CanvasPop uses archival-grade canvas, printers, ink and frames to ensure the high quality canvas photo prints that will not fade or degrade over time. They don’t outsource their work and their canvas prints are handcrafted in America.

Another perk is that they have designers that can even help print lower resolution photos, maybe some that you captures on your mobile phone. They can help fine tune your photo, remove red-eye, adjust colors and crop the image to fit your canvas photo print perfectly.

For example, above is a photo I took Summer 2014 on my mobile phone. I had my big, heavy DSLR with me, but I just took a snapshot of my son when he was sitting under a tree at D.C. to take a break. I fell in love with it and knew I wanted to turn it into a Canvas, but I had my doubts since it was just a digital quickie, something that Shutterfly would probably tell me wasn’t good enough resolution to print. But Canvas Pop turned it into a 16″ x 20″ Canvas for me as part of a review! Gorgeous! I cannot wait to find a spot for it in my home.
